Haven : Series Review (Season 1)


About: Shrewd and confident FBI Special Agent Audrey Parker (Emily Rose) has a lost past and an openness to the possibility of the paranormal. When she arrives in the small town of Haven, Maine, on a routine case, she soon finds herself caught up with the return of The Troubles, a plague of supernatural afflictions that occurred in the town at least once before. If that was not enough to draw her in, she also finds a link that may lead her to the mother she has never known.

Review: Haven! What an amazing series! The reason I decided to watch it was Yiota, I didn't even know what it was about when I started watching it.

Haven is not a very unique series because many of the weird things that happen in Haven I have already seen them happen in “Fringe”. On the one hand, this means that someone that likes “Fringe” would like “Haven”, on the other hand that is not completely true!

To begin with, the series is about a small town, where weird crimes take place and an FBI agent moves there to investigate them and also to find her mother. The agent is Emily Rose as Audrey Parker, in my opinion she is great for this role and also she makes a great team with Lucas Bryant as Nathan Wuornos, of Haven PD. But my favorite characters of the show are Eric Balfour as Duke Crocker, the port town's smuggler, who is a “bad boy” and Richard Donat as Vince Teagues and John Dunsworth as Dave Teagues, the editors of the Haven Herald (they are two lovely elderly brothers).

The first season has 13 episodes of 40 minutes each. In this season we get to know all the characters but there are many mysteries and secrets in Haven that we don't get answers about them. There is a second season two since July 14/2011 until September 30/2011 with 12 episodes.

Generally I love detective fiction, this series like many others take detective fiction to an other level by adding supernatural elements. Personally I really liked it and I am going to watch season 2 as well, I recommend it to those of you who like detective fiction and supernatural stuff !


**The show is being based on the Stephen King story "The Colorado Kid", a 2005 mystery novella**

  9. @Johnny: if you had watch as many series as I, you wouldn't love it that much :p

    I wish they would cancel this one, and give Eureka 3 more seasons instead XD

    I will try to finish it at some point though. Now, i'm trying Doctor Who.
