Haven: Season 1 (2010)



Critic Consensus: It benefits from an intriguing setting and a strong lead in Emily Rose, but otherwise, Haven is a derivative supernatural crime procedural.

Critic Reviews for Haven Season 1

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (12)

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

Please wake me when it's over.

Neither the town nor Rose particularly come to life, and the supporting cast so far is limited to a genial but dull local cop and a local hustler.

You get used to the show's love of red herrings, in which Nathan and Audrey see theory after theory busted, but some of those false trails are pretty well done.

Feb 12, 2019 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

This offbeat Syfy series, based on Stephen King's "The Colorado Kid," takes some large leaps, with unseen forces wreaking havoc. Lively exchanges between Parker and the quirky townspeople keep it light.

Feb 12, 2019 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

While this little town's mysterious supernatural backstory shows promise, the intrigue is lost at sea.

Feb 12, 2019 | Full Review…

"Haven" is couched as a mystery or a thriller of some sort, but offers neither of either.

Feb 12, 2019 | Full Review…

Interesting visuals, enigmatic locals, and just an overall sense of eeriness are strangely absent. Other than some unfavorable weather patterns, Haven seems more suited for a bed and breakfast weekend than the setting of a Stephen King adaptation.

Feb 12, 2019 | Rating: 5.5/10 | Full Review…

There's a premise here, but it's the sort of premise you can grasp in concept without being really excited about. Haven is a small town where strange things happen. Now where have I heard that before?

"Haven" is a show one will like for 20 reasons, and one that will irritate for 25 more.

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.
