Primetime Show Reviews
season premiere by Suzanne
On Syfy Fridays at 10/9c
Haven is a very interesting show, and I look forward to seeing
more. Emily Rose plays Audrey, an FBI agent with a history of investigating
strange things. She gets sent to the small town of Haven, Massachussetts to find
an escaped convict. It is a weird town where strange things happen. Plus,
Audrey, who is an orphan, finds a newspaper article with a photo of a woman that
looks just like her. She stays in town to figure out if the woman is a relative.
She works with the local police detective, Nathan, who is handsome but kind of
odd. He can feel no pain, and he apparently can move very fast. They have good
chemistry. His father is the police chief, and they have an uneasy relationship.
It appears that her FBI boss has some secret agenda for sending her to the town,
so we shall see how that develops. There are lots of layers to the show to keep
it interesting. It's kind of like X-Files-meets-Eureka.
The show has a nice, creepy vibe to it. It is done by Shawn
Pillar, who did such a wonderful job with "The Dead Zone", which I loved, so
that explains why I like it so much. I would recommend it.

Based on The Colorado Kid from renowned author Stephen King, Haven follows FBI
agent Audrey Parker (Rose), who arrives in the small town of Haven, Maine to
solve the murder of a local ex-con. Before long, her natural curiosity lands her
in the epicenter of activity in this curious enclave, which turns out to be a
longtime refuge for people with a remarkable range of supernatural abilities.
Among the townspeople are local cop Nathan Wuornos (Lucas Bryant), who
eventually becomes Audrey's
partner, and the mysterious and charming Duke Crocker (Eric Balfour).
The impressive creative team behind Haven includes showrunner Scott Shepherd (Tru
Calling, The Dead Zone) who is joined by E1 Entertainment's John Morayniss
(Hung, Copper) Noreen Halpern (Hung, Copper), Laszlo Barna (The Bridge) and
Michael Rosenberg (Hung, The Riches) as well as his partners, Executive
Producers Lloyd Segan and Shawn Piller (The Dead Zone, Wildfire, Greek). The
pilot is written by Sam Ernst (The Dead Zone) and Jim Dunn (The Dead Zone) who
will also serve
as executive producers on the series.
