In 1999 we had the tv series Roswell. In 2019 we have Roswell, New Mexico.
I watched all of the 1999 series and even read one of the books it was based on. I enjoyed it and might even do a rewatch in the future.
The other night was the premiere of the updated Roswell, New Mexico.
What follows will probably not be a popular opinion, but I’m an old man and I can say whatever the hell I want.
I did not enjoy the new series. It’s too politically correct and promotes values I do not agree with. I’m not a conspiracy guy, but I believe that the entertainment industry has a strong political/social agenda. This new Roswell is definitely aiming for a younger demographic who are easily accepting of the ideas and values they are exposed to. Much of the viewpoint promoted by the people behind the program wasn’t smoothly worked in to the script....it was shoved in our faces.
I’m sure it will be popular, but at heart it’s not really show about aliens from outer space. It’s a lecture (scolding) aimed at American society about what they think we should be.
