Roswell, awful 90s show notable for Jason Behr's sexiness, has been rebooted. Thread II.

They've added gays.

R2, would you rather have sex with Jason Behr or Tyler Blackburn?

Watching now, the scene where the Alex character confronts the Kyle character on how he derailed their friendship because Alex came out was nice.

At least Alex was in this episode.

The pacing is ridiculous. Five episodes in there's barely mystery left. I'm guessing there will be the 4th Evil Alien?

Tyler Blackburn got a little moment to squeeze out some acting and then went back to being wooden. I'd rather he was just making out with someone.

Interview with Tyler Blackburn and Michael Vlamis.

It's nice to see they get along well. They have a kind of a brotherly vibe, which is a bit weird I guess. Whoever said Vlamis is an attention whore was right, the guy is clearly thirsy for attention from fangirls and talks about being happy to be in gifs and part of a ship. They went to see Love, Simon together, which is cute.

Either way, this show is a bomb.

There were more aliens in the books and the 90s shown. That is a certainty.

The dirtiness is the sex appeal, it's the "that guy fucks" aura.

Kyle is Ken Doll-esque. Pretty, but not sexual.

R26 He needs to be handsomer to make the dirtiness sexy. As long as the Ken Doll has a functional dick, I think Alex can work with it.

Michael is pretty hot and he’s got pretty eyes. But he just doesn’t look believable as a hopeless gay (or bi whatever) romantic. He looks like a bro who’d go cruising for handjobs but would never kiss a guy on the mouth. And then he would say he’s straight and loves pussy while you’re sucking his dick

r33 The actress playing the new sheriff, Rosa Arredondo, kicks ass but hasn't really featured as much so far. I watched the show with one eye in the beginning so I might have missed a scene or two. She oozes that New York boss energy so I hope we see more of her going forward.

r34 There was a nice talk (two talks, actually) between a straight guy and a gay guy about bullying and coming out, which you don't really see that often on TV; just a straight guy shutting up and letting the gay guy tell his story. So it's worth watching the most recent episode for that alone, in my opinion.

by Anonymousreply 3502/14/2019

I liked the Kyle/Alex scenes from the last episode. Now I want one where Alex catches Kyle and Michael fucking together.

Isobel is well cast. The actess looks like an alien when she tries to act emotionnal (+ the weird mole).

r41 Agreed, it's getting more watchable by the episode. But boy did that awful start to the season leave a bad impression on me.

r21 He's so handsome, isn't he? Looks a bit like a mix of Danny Pudi and Carlos Miranda. Isobel should've had that shit locked down ages ago, fake pregnancy and all. She has no one but herself to blame for losing that tall dreamboat now.

I don't believe for a sec they'd make one of the main characters a murdered, that would work on HBO but no a fluffy CW show. There must be a 4th alien. I vote either that other crazy blonde woman Max is hooking up, Isobel's husband or whoever was that guy who attacked Liz in the previous episode.

So much of Isobel goes to the desert doesn't make any sense. Her husband said she hadn't been home, but she was wearing a nightgown so clearly she was in bed before she sleep-walked her way to the middle of nowhere. And how far is that, anyway? Then it never occurred to her to even call her husband while she was gone all day? She couldn't borrow Michael's phone? So stupid.

I'm going with the crazy blonde woman. It was said in a previous episode that she had been in the military prior to becoming a deputy. It could be revealed that she was getting intel on the military the whole time and then she deceives Alex's dad later on and thwarts his investigation.

Is Isobel's husband white? He doesn't look white but his name is pretty basic. I think he's too underdeveloped to just be a husband, must be an alien.

Definitely not white. He looks Indian from certain angles and Latino from others. Every time I try to google the actor (Karan Oberoi), that Bollywood actor and that model with the same name pop up and I can't find anything useful on him. I guess I'll have to start watching Counterpart again to see if he's got more to do there.

William Sadler will always be Sheriff Valenti to me. And i loved his relationship with Kyle. Him dating Maria's mother was great in season 2.

by Anonymousreply 6202/15/2019

Yeah, Sadler had some great scenes in Seasons 1 & 2.

In Season 1, Sadler brought a quiet menace to the Sheriff when he was hunting Max, Michael & Isobel.

He also had some good scenes in Season 2 when he was investigating Alex's death and dealing with the loss of the Sheriff's job.

But I thought the writers degraded his character in Season 3 when they had Valenti taking a job with that cheesy singing band.

Alex is straight out of some hurt/comfort slash... As a one-time slash reader, I can feel him luring me into caring about this shitty show by being oh so vulnerable just waiting for someone to comfort him! I think Tyler also plays up that angle.

I really don’t see the chemistry between Alex and Michael all the fangirls are seeing. The guy who plays Michael, while not being a great actor, is obviously of the kind who can have chemistry with a piece of paper, but Tyler just looks constipated when he’s supposed to exhibit passion. Which is weird because I have seen gifs of their interviews and Tyler is constantly making heart eyes at his co-star.

Man, Michael must have superhuman levels of self-control to sit there and allow his hand to get brutally crushed by a hammer when he could stop this situation with a thought. Though I guess that fits with him being the only alien that hasn't killed someone lol, his damn siblings always screwing everything up.

It was especially noticeable two episodes or so ago when Liz and Max were hanging out, with those wonderful pink flowers in the background.

R226 By episode 7 only Liz and Kyle know that the trio is alien. Maria and Alex are in the dark, the evil Manes only suspects it (I think) and probably only Max, the blonde fuckbuddy is probably not even aware what she's reporting to Manes.

The one problem I have with the show is that it lacks the group chemistry. In the original, once everyone knew, or at least Maria knew, they constantly hung out as a group. I know it was high school, but still. Everyone knows that Liz knows but we only had a hostile interaction and Isobel apoligizing to Liz, not a group working together. I want them all gathered around like the good ol' days.

R228, if you are a gay man and don’t know who Brian Stokes Mitchell (once Brian Mitchell during Mail and Kiss of the Spider Woman) then you should be seriously ashamed and turn in your gay card.

He is a Tony-Award winning actor with one of the most thrilling voices of the past 50 years. His portrayal of Coalhouse made him a bona fide star and his duet with Audra McDonald, “Wheels of a Dream,” became an instant classic. (He reteamed with Audra for the fascinating yet very problematic Shuffle Along in 2016).

He received consecutive Tony nominations for Ragtime, Kiss Me, Kate (won), King Hedley II and Man of La Mancha.

I want to like this show because I enjoyed the original but this version is missing the silliness and the actor chemistry and it doesn't even have an interesting plot to back it up. I was hoping once they drop the Rosa plotline they'd go with the government conspiracies and FBI chasing aliens, the White Room torture etc but the only human villain so far left town in this episode without doing anything to harm the aliens and it doesn't look like anyone above him (FBI?) is even involved. At this point I'd only be watching for the gays but the gays are not interacting and it looks like they are building up Michael and Maria's future romance. If the next episode doesn't deliver on either the plot or the gays, I think I'm gonna drop this mess like a hot potato.

by Anonymousreply 26503/13/2019

Yes, Alex's dad being run out of town feels like it should be a scene in the final episode of the season *after* he has done some real damage to the aliens. But his investigation of the aliens never really got the air time it deserved, and this seems like the writers nipping a storyline in the bud. I actually see chemistry between Michael and Maria, so if they do this triangle right, it could be quite interesting.

I doubt Isobels husband is the 4th alien, he seemed to honestly have no clue that Isobel was an alien or anything supernatural was going on til this episode. None his actions feel consistent with that to, though you never know with this show. As one poster cleverly said you couldn't be surprised if they suddenly reveal Kyle is a werewolf.

by Anonymousreply 31203/20/2019

Shiri did her best with a script that was all over the place. The odd time jump (was it six weeks or something) really makes this episode feel like it should be the return episode after a hiatus. The character dynamics have changed significantly. Alex is now the one in charge of this alien project and Kyle just kind of roll over for this coup? But I like the opportunity for more Kyle/Alex bonding. Having Isobel gone (she's not missed so can they drag out her return?) give more time to the bromance between Max and Michael! Of course, Maria getting herself in between Malex feels more like a nod to the old show than anything else since they have more of a friend chemistry here. All the romantic tension is between Malex, so she can only ever be a third wheel anyway.

R316 I'm just saying there is some flirtation/sex but no serious romantic tension between Michael and Maria so far compared to stacked history of angst and forbidden love between Malex. So unless that changes, Maria is no competition to Alex.

This show finished fliming before any episode aired. They didn't know what the reaction to Michael and Alex was going to be. I fully believe that why Michael is bi and why they're floating the idea that Michael and Maria will happen beyond a one night stand. While keeping Michael and Alex dangling.

If there was a blacklash they would "fix it" in season two and fully do Michael and Maria. It's kind of transparent and honestly predictable once they started saying he was bi in interviews.

You can't have a mystery without suspects and this show forgot to add suspects so everyone knew it had to be Noah. They should have let it be Maria.

I think this was probably the best episode of the series so far.

I agree that the lack of suspects in this mystery made the “reveal” obvious and anti-climatic. They should have developed some more of the townspeople a little more so it could have been a more interesting choice.

R460 You can tell the writer was losing her way in the second half... around the time Alex suddenly turned the table on his dad and sent him off to Africa. There was no development for that plot twist at all. A better writer would have kept building the dad as the big bad for the whole season... manipulating Kyle to do his bidding, which would make Kyle's take down of Alex's dad more satisfying. Meanwhile Alex should have further bonded with Michael helping the alien side fighting against his dad. Instead, he was sidelined for much of the second half only surfacing to be a plot device. Throwing in a Malex argument/conversation here and there just kept the relationship on a perpetual holding pattern. I actually think the ship never really developed after they had sex in the third episode. This show is a real big letdown since it failed at developing the only thing interesting about it.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
