A bit of an update on when the rest of Bill’s ROSWELL episodes will be done. I am currently attempting to write my first novel and most of my time is dedicated to either outlining, or research. I’ve had little time for anything else other than regular household and family stuff. I do plan on resuming soon. I want to get all his work done on ROSWELL, however, there is a lot of work to be done. Please be patient as I get those done. And I’m also trying to get up a new layout. This one has been up since the site went up and I think it’s time for a refresh.
So season one ends with this balls-to-the-wall finale where Bill is able to show what he can do. From his confrontation of Pierce (David Cameron), to the heartbreaking scene where Kyle (Nick Wechsler) gets shot and dies and Valenti begs Max (Jason Behr) to save his life. All in all season one wrapped up pretty good and this ends season one’s screencaps. Season two to start soon… now where’s the tear emoji?

Now we get to the meat and potatoes of why Bill is such an amazing actor. The way he played Valenti’s slow discovery of the kids and their true selves starting with Tess, Lies, and Videotape and ending with his suspicions coming true in Max to the Max where he saw two Max Evans’ (Jason Behr). Then finally him coming through in the end when he arrives in time to help Michael (Brendan Fehr) save Max from Pierce (David Conrad). All around some excellent episodes heavy on Valenti.
Well we’re finally back and about to wrap up Bill’s season one episodes from ROSWELL where he played the part of Sheriff Jim Valenti. Some really good episodes here. I think my favourite has to be Independence Day where he had some pretty good flirting with Amy DeLucca (Diane Farr). Loved that so much. So cute. Also loved the end scene in The Convention was damn good and I have to say that Jason Behr as Max was fantastic in it the way he confronted Valenti about his pursuit of him and the others. The next five episodes will be something in terms of Bill and the arc Valenti was on during season one.
Back again this time with four more episodes from Bill’s role as Sheriff Jim Valenti from ROSWELL. Gotta say it, Valenti’s menacing of Max (Jason Behr) is a little too good. I mean come on, it’s a little much though Bill does it well. I also loved Bill’s scenes with Diane Farr who played Amy DeLuca. They’re cute together and it’s good to see Bill getting a romantic partner. He keeps saying he’s never considered for a romantic lead. Bill’s mantra is, “Boy meets girl. Boy gets girl. Boy dismembers girl.” Oh my. Here’s hoping Amy doesn’t end up like that!
