Haven: Complete Fifth Season-Vol 1 DVD cover

 

Haven: Complete Fifth Season-Vol 1 Blu-ray

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 9/8/15

I really love this show and have watched every episode since season 1! I've also interviewed most of the stars from the show. The last couple of years, things got really weird. I think I liked it better when we didn't know who Audrey was and they just investigated the strange things going on. However, in today's TV, fans wanted a Big Bad every season, or a larger story arc, not just the one-per-episode problems.

They did come up with a fairly good explanation for everything, yet still keep us guessing as to what's really going on. It just gets a bit strange at times. I enjoyed when Colin Ferguson was on the show as William, but I didn't like Audrey being evil. I'm glad they sort of settled that in this season. It was great seeing Emily Rose playing a dual rose.

I love science fiction and fantasy shows, but the thing I like most about this series is the relationship between Audrey and Nathan, and their triangle/friendship with Duke. Also, they have lots of great fun, quirky characters, like the Teagues and Dwight, and the medical examiner.

It's great to have all of the episodes available on DVD and now Blu-ray.  Ordinarily I don't like it when companies break up TV seasons into volume 1 and volume 2, but this one actually makes sense because season 5 is twice as long as a normal season. I don't know why they decided to do it this way, but season 5 volume 1 is 13 episodes (just like season 4), and when the show returns in October, it's the second half of season 5, not season 6. It's so weird. Anyway, you should watch all of the episodes if you haven't already, and enjoy it. It's a really good series with a lot of heart, great specially effects, and good acting.

There are quite a few good features on the DVD as well, to enjoy. See below for details.

I'm very upset that they're canceling the series and this last 13 episodes starting in October will be the last. I can't wait for the show to return 10/8, but I'm sad that it's the last part of the show.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

 

The Troubles are returning to Haven like never before in HAVEN: SEASON FIVE, VOLUME ONE, arriving on extras-loaded blu-ray and DVD on September 8 from Entertainment One.

 

Based on the novella "The Colorado Kid" from Stephen King, the hit Syfy series follows former FBI agent Audrey Parker (Emily Rose), who became a cop in the small town of Haven, Maine, and quickly found herself involved in the return of "the Troubles," a series of supernatural afflictions that have plagued the seaside village for generations.  Partnered with local residents Nathan Wuornos (Lucas Bryant) and Duke Crocker (Eric Balfour), Audrey began to realize that Haven's fate was linked to her own, and only she can save the town and the people she loves from the weight of their curses.

 

HAVEN: SEASON FIVE, VOLUME ONE, picks up with the aftermath of our heroes' victory over William.  After having successfully banished him into the Void, Nathan and Duke are devastated to discover that the Audrey Parker they know and love has disappeared. In her place stands Mara, the unflinchingly malevolent "original" person responsible for creating the troubles many centuries ago. Finally freed from the confines of her do-gooder husks (Audrey, Lucy, Sarah, etc.), Mara proceeds to unleash a wave of chaos over Haven. 

 

From leading independent studio Entertainment One (eOne), Haven is co-commissioned by Shaw Media in Canada and globally via Universal Networks International (UNI).

 

The creative team behind Haven includes executive producers John Morayniss (Klondike, Rogue) from eOne Television and David MacLeod (Legends of the Fall, The Ray Bradbury Theater) of Big Motion Pictures, who are joined by Lloyd Segan, Shawn Piller, Scott Shepherd (Stephen King's The Dead Zone, Greek) of Piller/Segan/Shepherd and Matt McGuinness (Minority Report, Journeyman, Franklin and Bash) and Gabrielle Stanton (The Flash, The Vampire Diaries, Grey's Anatomy).   The series was developed by Sam Ernst and Jim Dunn (Stephen King's The Dead Zone).

 

Haven is produced by Entertainment One and Big Motion Pictures in association with Piller/Segan/Shepherd and airs on Syfy in the US, Showcase in Canada and internationally on UNI's multiple Syfy channels. Entertainment One controls the worldwide distribution rights to the one-hour series.
