So the gist of the story is that Roman and his kind crash landed on Earth ten years ago to a not so friendly welcome. For a short time Emery hid Roman in her garage and fed him, took care of him, and did things six-year-olds do together. Basically she showed him kindness in a world that terrified him. Of course he was found and, so she thought, killed. But he turns up ten years later when his kind is integrated into society via Emery's high school. And that's where the story for these two begins.
I have to admit, watching the previews I was excited but worried that the character of Emery came off a little bland. But good news is, I loved her! The previews definitely didn't do her character justice because Aimee Teegarden does a fabulous job. And what can I say, I absolutely adore Matt Lanter. He knows how to play the heart throb, and honestly he and his wife are so darn cute, how can you NOT just love him?
If you haven't checked this show out yet, do it TONIGHT! If you love aliens, you will adore Star-Crossed. Rather than give you every detail that makes it so great (seriously, just watch it), I am sharing a gif timeline of my reactions to the pilot. Enjoy! (And GO WATCH! NOW!)

Followed by some other stuff
Then Roman's gift to Emery
So if you love all things aliens, or forbidden love, or just fun high school romance, go watch this show. It's got drama, action, fun, and of course, that heart-warming first love stuff.
It's on the CW Monday nights at 8PM EST.
