When I got my first contact with Roswell I was in eight grade and there was a friend of mine that saw the first episode and she was like, "It's really cool, you know, it's about this girl who gets shot and a guy heals her and then she finds out that he is an alien and all", but I must confess, I wasn't the slightest bit interested. I was like, "Yeah, whatever". I cannot believe I ever thought of ROSWELL this way!!! Then we were in 9th grade the show was up again and she used to talk to me about it and, gradually, I started to get hooked until I got to see my first episode (Departure). And from then on... well, I guess you guys get it. :lol: We talked about the characters, and their quotes, and fanfiction, and Max and Liz's UNFAIRLY not shown first time, and all... and now I am a Roswell fanatic!!! :D

LOL! Yeah, I think my mom has gotten me to watch more shows almost obsessively than I ever thought I could watch on my own. :roll: But at least Roswell was all me.

I got hooked one night after I got grounded...My parents ripped the phone line out of my wall, the cable, and my stereo.. but even though my cable was tv was there. So i found an antena and watched local networks, and there it was...the epi. where liz's grandma died! THEN I WAS ADDICTED!!!! I never missed an episode after that...Oh wait..i missed Isabels B-day one...I was in the bahamas and i couldnt find a tv anywhere...i was bummed!!!

I didn't become hooked to Roswell until the episode Sexual Healing. At first when the previews would come on, I would just ignore them bc they looked real dumb, lol. But a week or two before the episode Sexual Healing, I was in New York with a good friend and she was trying to convince me to start watching Roswell. Well that following week I did and I've been hooked every since. Now my friend teases bc I'm still addicted and she's not. Then, I have to remind her that she was the one who got me hooked in the first place. So it's all her fault.

First time I heard about Roswell was in 1999 while I was having the best holidays of my life in the USA.
Husband and Kids were enjoying the hotel pool and I had a little bit of free time from family duty.... and from the wash machine! :lol:
Switched the TV and the first ep I saw was the one where Liz had a date bc of winning a radio contest! and Dido was just amazing....Let say I was enthralled: I always loved SciFi!
Had to wait 1 1/2 year until Roswell rejoined Europe.... :? :roll:

I was in the States when Roswell first aired back in '99. I saw the promos and since I love sci-fi..., the show looked really interesting and promisng. Plus, I saw Jason and Shiri in one of the first promos and thought they looked so good together and they just oozed chemistry. Heard Here With Me by Dido and loved the song and it seemed so perfect for the show. I watched the first episode and was hooked. Jason and Shiri just drew me in. Their chemistry and connection was so great that I couldn't help but tune in. Needless to say, ever since then I've been a Roswell obsessor. *lol*

When Roswell first premiered.. I watched it.. the name alone guaranteed that, cuz I am a sci fi freak

But then I moved to another state.. and we didn't have cable... and where I moved too, WB was only available as a cable channel

Fast forward some years... I picked it up again while on maternity leave with my daughter.. the sci fi channel would show it everyday.. somedays it ran back to back all day...

I've never seen it straight through though.. It's been in bits and pieces.. I need to get the DVD sets so I can finally see it from start to finish

I've been hooked from the first episode. I had been looking forward to it starting for months and when it did, I became obsessed! :D
