Roswell, New Mexico, is the perfect stop for a day or two. Before you visit, binge on these fun and silly gay-ish alien TV shows.
There are three RV parks within walking distance of downtown and a charming art scene with two world-class museums.
The main attraction, though, is the entire experience around The Roswell Incident. According to locals, in 1947, the wreckage of a UFO was discovered right outside of Roswell which began a decades-long conspiracy and cover-up by the government of aliens arriving on Earth.
All of Roswell is full of fun and kitsch alien experiences.
But why does the experience have to wait until you arrive? Binge these shows before you arrive, or after your departure, to keep believing.Silly & gay alien tv shows you really need to enjoy before Roswell NM?
This smart and simple comedy features a suburban neighborhood full of aliens who are stuck on Earth due to, essentially, a missing phone charger. These Zabvrovians are just living their best lives when, after ten years on Earth in secret, the human Weaver family moves into the neighborhood.
With names like Larry Bird and Jackie Joyner-Kersee, chosen to evade suspicion of course, what follows is two seasons of easy watching fish-out-of-water, laugh-out-loud, self-aware 30-minute comedy. Both the aliens and their new neighbors trying to maintain their humanity and sanity.
Originally aired on ABC from 2012-2014.
Available on Hulu and Amazon Prime.
Take a trip a bit deeper into this small town in New Mexico, just miles from Roswell, and meet Harry.
Harry has been sent to destroy Earth, but crashes his ship and must search for his special device while maintaining a low profile. Learning how to be human from reruns of Law and Order, Harry keeps a low profile even when he is accidentally appointed as the town doctor.

With dark-leaning humor, a charming diverse cast, and an hour-long serial format, Resident Alien is the perfect evening binge for your days before Roswell.
