this week I binge watched Roswell NM (13 episodes, CW network)

*spoilers*

Riverdale wannabe. teen sex, gay, parent issues, etc.
occasional snarky leftist comments didn't help.
characters were not memorable or appealing.
uninspired plot
very PC. the two bad guys were white males, one military (surprise).

apparently based on the 'Roswell' series ten years ago or so, both based on a series of teen books.
I watched but was not impressed and probly will not watch season two (if there is one).

I did not realize that this was a remake of an earlier "Roswell". Is it worth catching up on or more of a teen drama show?
