That's the best description I can come up with for "Haven," a paranormal crime show very loosely adapted from Stephen King's novel "The Colorado Kid." The first season starts off on a rather mediocre note with a string of one-off "troubles," but slowly develops a mysterious arc that grows more intriguing and powerful as time passes.
FBI agent Audrey Parker (Emily Rose) is sent to the town of Haven to find an escaped murderer... but as soon as she arrives, she finds that the guy is dead... and his death was physically impossible.
Not only does Haven have some bizarre people and strange weather patterns, but Audrey finds that she has a connection to the place -- an old photo with a woman who looks just like her. So she decides to stay in Haven, and partners up with local cop Nathan Wuornos (Lucas Bryan) to solve local crimes while she searches for hints to her past.
However, it turns out that the "troubles" are returning to Haven after thirty-ish years -- mysterious aging, outbreaks of madness and sanity, spontaneously rotting food, horrible deaths related to artwork, a shadowy "Dark Man" (no, not the one Stephen King fans are thinking of!), a deadly shapeshifter, fiery deaths, a poltergeist and countless ground cracks.
"Haven Season 1" takes a little time to bloom. At first the acting is stiff, the one-off plots are ordinary, and there's no strong overarcing plot except "the troubles are back!" But as time goes by, the stories get darker and the writing becomes more compelling -- especially since only some of the mysteries center around stuff you can arrest people for.Read more ›
After going through some stressful times, FBI agent Audrey Parker is sent by her boss agent Howard (Maurice Dean Wint), to the town of Haven, Maine, to investigate the death of an escaped prisoner. On the way to Haven she is introduced to "the troubles", weird paranormal forces and events, that the town is known for. The city girl experiences some problems with being accepted by the locals, but manages to affiliate herself with the local police department, headed by Chief Garland Wuornos (Nicholas Campbell), and his son Nathan (Lucas Bryant), who does not feel pain. Nathan and Audrey become partners, and begin to investigate further manifestations of "the troubles".
Audrey Parker's past becomes an ongoing mystery. She is an orphan who never knew her mother, and is intrigued when she finds a newspaper article with a photograph of a woman named Lucy, who looks quite like her. The title of the article is "Who Killed the Colorado Kid?" After an unexpected fall into the water, Audrey is rescued by Duke Crocker (Eric Balfour). Crocker runs a restaurant, lives aboard a boat, and apparently has some connection with the mysterious Lucy.Read more ›
I think I became a fan in the episode where we see Audrey reach out and touch her partner Nathan on the arm and we realize that he can actually feel it by the subtlest flash of emotion on his face. This is where the show began to interest me. We begin to see that there is more to Audrey than even we know.
These characters all have some huge secrets and we as viewers aren't going to know them all at once. The strange incidents that happen in Haven are directly tied to whats really going on with our main characters.
By the end of the season I was eager to see more of Haven and all it's odd-ball citizens. SyFy does get some things right. This show is one of them.
