Here's my 2 cents after watching the screener for the CW's Star-Crossed pilot:

First Thoughts:
Star-Crossed seems like a good fit for the CW, the human alien romance doesn’t really break any new ground but was more entertaining than I expected (though my expectations were pretty low).

Theme:
The major theme of the show is how human society treats the aliens very obviously a social commentary on bullying and discrimination against minorities; the aliens aren't particularly alien either with very human appearances.

Romance:
The human-alien romance is at the center and there is excellent chemistry between the two leads (Aimee Teagarden and Matt Lanter) and while the show will probably resort to the usual love triangles there is no believable chemistry between Aimee Teagarden and the human males and the show would do well to avoid a central love triangle.

Characters:
The alien characters are generally more intriguing than the human ones who are mostly completely forgettable and unsympathetic besides Malase Jow’s cancer suffering Julia but there are no real standout supporting characters, Matt Lanter gives a good performance as the male lead and his character is likely to be loved by female viewers and should be the focus of the show rather than Aimee Teagarden who does decently but feels somewhat passive for a lead character.

Overall feel:
After the very sci-fi start to the pilot the high school setting takes over giving it more of a teen drama feel, the show is overall much lighter than the Vampire Diaries but would be a good fit to pair with it should Reign fail. It could also pair well with Beauty & the Beast.
