15 years after The WB/UPN’s “Roswell” first premiered, the cast and creator reunited at the ATX Television Festival in Austin to regale a packed theater with their memories of filming the cult alien drama. Stars Shiri Appleby, Jason Behr, Brendan Fehr, Majandra Delfino and Nick Wechsler were on hand, along with creator Jason Katims and several hundred fans who eagerly crammed themselves into the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema for a trip back to the eventful New Mexico town.
In a surreal turn, “Jersey Shore” star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi — apparently a diehard fan of the short-lived but much-beloved series — flew in from the East Coast specifically to attend the reunion panel, and even asked a question during the Q&A. (The reality star asked whether the cast believes in aliens — Appleby and Delfino said yes, for the record.)
Katims recalled reading the first book in the young adult series that spawned the show and admitted to being “charmed” by the central love story and larger, more mythic themes. “It was an idea I never would’ve come up with on my own,” he admitted. “It seemed like an incredibly romantic idea to me, these two characters, Liz and Max, being in love but having this very real thing that kept them from being together. I’d never worked on anything that had the kind of stakes that this show had… That was the thing that I was drawn to, and I was also drawn to the fun of the idea.”
You have done some great projects- is there one that sticks out ?
Nope. Loved them all the same.
Who is the most interesting person you have worked with ?
Raven-Simone. I’ve never learned so much from someone. She is equal parts rascal and sage. I was absolutely smitten with her.
What actress did you look up to when growing up ?
I always looked up to Claire Danes. No one consistently blew me away like that. She is of another time and place. And always has been.
Favorite movie ?
Favorite movies are: The Green Mile, Edward Scissorhands, Frida and Great Expecations. I’m a child.
If you had a super power what would it be ?
Super power: to stop time. Great for naps and reading…and f-ing with everybody whose frozen around you.
Do you have a charity ?
Yes. Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. Donate!! Please?

Still so very upset about CBS not showing all episodes they ordered. Also, it appears that the last episode to air will be the last episode they filmed. So we will be missing episodes 1.08 – 1.11 (hopefully we will be able to see them somehow).
I added 6 HQ stills from the last episode. A big thanks to Lisa for them
“Something New” – Andi and Bobby try to take a last minute baby moon, but when Andi misses Charlie and ruins the mood, Bobby complains to Lowell about the pitfalls of marriage giving him cold feet for his upcoming nuptials. Meanwhile, Will gets very drunk and hooks up with a woman who he realizes is much older than he thought, on the first season finale of FRIENDS WITH BETTER LIVES Monday, May 26 (8:30-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Beverly D’Angelo guest stars as Will’s drunken hook-up and Mark Feuerstein guest stars as a man who interests Kate.
