I found this 1999 TV show and it was eerie how many similarities it shared with Twilight.
All right, Twilight die hards, there is another series that may pique your interest. In Roswell lives an alien named Max Evans who has a lot of the qualities of Edward. He is a nonhuman in love with a human girl, Liz Parker who is much more interesting than Bella. Liz is Max's lab partner in science class, and Max has used his superpowers to save Liz's life.
I really like this series. At first, this high school alien stalking his lab partner, was a little too much like its the vamp in Forks that followed Roswell. But after four episodes (Based on the novel Roswell High) I was hooked.
There are three aliens living in Roswell and the authors develop all three of them. I really like the snappy, sassy, sister Isabel Evans (Max's sister is played by a young Kathrine Heigl) and love the other alien Michael Guerrin. He's a cutie! And his bad boy persona keeps the plot interesting.
The authors also develop a quirky friend of Liz's named Maria. Maria seemed a little too odd at first, but she goes through such human responses to the aliens, I just started to connect with her.
Conflict brews with the sheriff in town, who is the son of the the very sheriff that investigated "the crash" of 1947. And rumors of miracle healings has the FBI is poking its nose around too. They even sent an agent undercover as a teacher.
You can't beat the setting: Roswell, New Mexico for a haunting pallet. I mean, don't we all wonder if there really is a great cover up. And don't we all wonder if the guy next to us might be an Alien?
The three aliens have great powers too. They can manipulate molecular structures. . .play cd's without a player, make the air conditioner work in your car, heal quickly, melt metal. . .so cool.
Put this in your Netflix queue! I know, Twilight fans are Twilight fans, but I am Roswell fan. I wonder if anyone is hiring out there in Roswell, New Mexico :0)
(By the way my dad was in Roswell da da da dum. . .LOL)
