    Star-Crossed lacks humor, suspense or even heat.

    There's a tentative blandness to 'Star-Crossed' that hindered my ability to care about any of its broadly sketched characters.

    Star Crossed, with its gloomy-doomy vibe, its comic-book appropriation of big themes and the way it makes an alien encampment look like St. Marks Place on Halloween, may have trouble reaching beyond the teenage demographic.

    As vapid as it is unoriginal, Star-Crossed is sadly typical of a network that continually underestimates its audience.

    The show makes little effort to create a sense of the potent clash--or erotic attraction--between cultures. [24 Feb 2014, p.38]

    The dialogue is so awful, it probably doesn't matter that most of the performances are inauthentic.

Also a great way to explore prejudice. This show has much more potential than just another teen romance show. Oh, it will probably be that, but it's got so much more going for it. It's definitely not a remake of Roswell. Full Review »
