Top 21 TV shows of the Last 21 Years
8. Roswell ( 1999 - 2002) - The WB, UPN
The greatest of all teen romance sci-fi melodramas. I watched the entire series of Roswell in 11 days, and it was probably one of the greatest of all TV viewing experiences. Max, the tormented, melancholic, half-alien, passionate introvert; Liz, the sensible, standard girl-next-door; Isabel, the haughty, glamorous ice-queen; Maria, the sassy, clever, hot-headed confidante; Michael, the irrational, insecure, ass. Such a fine, well-rounded set of characters, in one of the funnest, most achingly emotional teen dramas ever. With high production that wasn’t yet generic, Roswell struck an unbelievable balance between kitsch melancholy and camp sci-fi goodness. “The End of the World” is one of my top 3 TV episodes of all time. Ever.
