"Haven'' is a bad thing, a third-rate summer series that starts happening to TV audiences tonight.

There's nothing about Haven that isn't derivative at best and dispiriting at worst.

There's nothing in the pilot of "Haven" that makes me eager to crawl down the rabbit hole of one more small town mystery with supernatural overtones.

The reason we might stick around is Audrey Parker.

Audience Reviews for Haven: Season 1


Based on the Stephen King novella The Colorado Kid, Haven is an exciting supernatural thriller from the SyFy network. In Season 1 FBI Agent Audrey Parker is sent to Haven, Maine, and discovers that the town is home to a number of people that have mysterious abilities called the Troubles, and that a look-a-like of hers named Lucy was once there and could be her long lost mother. Emily Rose leads the cast as Parker and gives a strong performance. And the writers do a pretty good job at building mystery and intrigue about the source of The Troubles and Parker's past. However, some of the case-of the-week stuff is pretty formulaic and plays like a bad X-Files rip-off. Season 1 of Haven has a few rocky moments, but overall it's a thrilling series worthy of King.
