If you love angsty teenage aliens, welcome to Roswell, a series developed, produced, and co-written by Jason Katims (
Friday Night Lights, WB and UPN networks. For this week’s Throwback Thursday, let’s take a look at “Blind Date,” the 14th episode of Season 1.
You know it’s a funny thing, revisiting the past. There’s this air of nostalgia but with a side of cringe. There were one or two moments in this episode where I literally cringed and hyperbolically facepalmed.
“Blind Date” comes on the heels of another non-breakup breakup for our star-crossed lovers, Liz and Max. While their cosmic connection takes center stage, this episode also featured some fun pairings and managed to ever so slightly advance the alien mythology. Granted, in many ways, it felt like a filler episode, but sometimes you need a break.
