Think of a TV series…
It began on the WB, focussing on a teenage boy, from another planet. He crashed to this planet during a now famous event, and was discovered by a human couple who took him in, in 1989, and adopted him. He is dark haired and handsome, and as the series moves on, he discovers new powers, and tries to learn more about who is is, where he is from, and what he can do. He has been described as being “not from around here” and the only things he has of his planet is part of the ship he crashed in, and some strange writings that are undeciferable. Towards the end of season 1, and then into season 2, we start to learn a little more about the alien side of things. He has been advised to just act as a normal teenager with a normal life.
As well as the boy, there is a girl, a human, short, dark haired. It is clear to all they are in love. The girl is going out with a typical High School jock, who sends his friends to “sort out” the alien teen. Towards the end of the latest season, she developed Cordelia-esque vision type powers. As well as this girl, the alien teen also had a relationship with a blonde girl, and we all know he is destined to be with somebody who is nor quite her, but almost.
The boy is aided by his friends, a wacky blonde who likes to solve mysteries, and her almost geeky friend who tags along to help her. We’ve also got the millionnaire who takes an interest in the activities of the teens, and is trying to learn more about the alien stuff going on. Also, one of the female lead characters appears to be an upstanding member of the local community, but is just trying to find her place in life. In one episode, she had a vision about a blonde girl buried alive underground. The wacky blonde and the short dark human girl once had an argument about “flipping out”
Among the production team is David Nutter, and the show has included songs such as “Destiny” by Zero 7, “Have a nice day” by the Stereophonics, “Perfect memory” by Remy Zero, and songs by Dido and Nelly Furtado. One of the cast also played in the recent All Star Hockey game.
So what is the show?
It’s both Roswell & Smallville!
(Insert Smallville bitterness here)
