Like the WB’s ROSWELL before it, The CW/UPN’s new Tuesday night series ROSWELL, NEW MEXICO is based on the ROSWELL HIGH novels by Melinda Metz.

The CW’s new series ROSWELL, NEW MEXICO is based on the ROSWELL HIGH series of novels by Melinda Metz. The 1999-2002 WB/UPN series ROSWELL was also based on Metz’s books, but everyone involved says that ROSWELL, NEW MEXICO, while it shares the basic premise and some character names, differs substantially from the earlier television version. While ROSWELL, NEW MEXICO still revolves around a trio of extraterrestrial siblings who came to Earth in the famous, mystery-shrouded crash, and are now hiding in plain sight as humans, these characters and their human friends and enemies are all adults. There are some other […]Read On »

CD Review: ROSWELL and COMMUNION soundtracks

After respectably re-performing John Carpenter and Ennio Morricone’s THE THING,  Buysoundtrax now breaks the ice on two lesser-known “true life” alien scores, one involving the human probing done on some accidental visitors to ROSWELL, then playing a writer’s metaphysical close encounter for COMMUNION. Yet despite the role-reversals, both scores are tried together by a lyrical approach steeped in mystery, and a sense for peaceful understanding, even if that might not be the government’s aim for the first 1994 Showtime movie, which continued composer Elliot Goldenthal’s streak of memorable genre scores following PET SEMETARY, ALIEN 3 and DEMOLITION MAN. While taking […]Read On »
