Is everyone seeing double on the WB's Wednesday nights, or is it just EW Online?
|We can just picture ”Roswell”’s initial pitch meeting: ”Think ‘Dawson’s Creek’ meets ‘The X-Files”’ Or perhaps: ”Imagine ‘Dawson’s Creek’ crossed with ‘E.T.’ — but with no ugly creatures!” Either way, WB execs bought it, and the rest is Wednesday-night history (kinda). Even so, the similarities between the ratings-grabbing ”Creek” and its freshman follow-up ”Roswell” are so blatantly spooky that we HAD to tell someone.
