  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
With only a few people aware of their origins, the three alien friends are finally all grown up. Not sure what's ahead, their past is starting to catch up with them, and they realize that "Roswell" is not as safe as it once was, not only for them but for their human friends as well. This is "The Complete Third Season" of the television series that follows these three young aliens and their human friends. (Tricia Spears)

DVD Picture:
This television series is presented here in anamorphic widescreen, and the 1.78:1-framed picture on these DVDs is quite pleasing throughout. Colors are often nicely balanced, with rich and warm hues, accurate fleshtones, and deep blacks. Images are sharp and nicely detailed, with satisfying textures and clarity. Contrast and shadow delineation are quite pleasing as well. Of course, the picture can, at times, appear a bit soft, and hues are occasionally overly saturated. Pixelization and minor edge enhancement are noticed occasionally. But for the most part, the picture quality should be quite pleasing and will certainly satisfy fans. (Suzanne Hodges)
