Imagine a cross between "Twin Peaks" and "Murder She Wrote," set in a quaint Maine town where weird things happen every week.

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.

HAVEN is a great new series and will appeal to Fringe and X File lovers. But it's not as heavy or as intense, so in many ways more relaxing to watch, bit like Eureka .
It's the usual formulae, guy, gal. slightly bad guy all working together to solve the weekly mystery.
Meanwhile there's a subplot - who was Audrey's mother? Why was she here in Haven? What happened to her.
Very enjoyable watching and lovely setting - was filmed in Nova Scotia (Canada).

I'd heard some good things about this show and managed to stumble across the re-runs of the first season on syfy, and i am so glad I did!! There is definitely an X-Files type element to the show, but it really is in a league of its own.

The main character, Audrey, is an FBI agent (if you don't like the average cop/crime show don't let this put you off) who travels to Haven following a convict, but whilst she is there it becomes apparent that there is a whole lot more to Haven than meets the eye. The show is a refreshing change from the norm as most of the episodes keep you guessing right to the end, and the season finale has got to be one of the best I have seen in a long time.

I would say, if you're not sure just give it a go, you've got nothing to lose and everything to gain! So glad that they are at last releasing this on region 2.

I came across this show through Amazon Prime, I wanted something to watch and gave it a try. The first few episodes are a bit slow but once it picked up it became really good! I love the main characters, Audrey, Luke and especially Nathan! I have to say I have watched all four seasons and looking forward to season 5. I haven't enjoyed a sci fi show so much since the great X Files!!

I received seasons 1 - 3 for Christmas as I totally love this series, interesting stories each episode with the added mystery surrounding Audrey life unwrapping in each episode, cannot wait for season 4 to come on DVD and season 5 on tv...

Amazing! Sat and watched 2 or 3 episodes a day, I am so impressed with it. Season one starts with a bang, jumps straight into The troubles and carries on unflinching and unwavering. The chemistry between all three main characters is perfect. Brilliant acting, no stiff or unnatural like some can be. Amazing show, amazing opener for the first season and it keeps going! Congrats to everyone who is involved.

I've managed to watch the first 4 episodes of this show and feel my gray matter shrinking at an alarming rate. How this show has continued on for 5 seasons is beyond me.

Firstly, and the most obvious logistical nightmare: how does anyone face a gruesome phenomenon with a cheeky grin and poorly written banter? The atrocity of the week is approached with such indifference and bland humor, it has to make one wonder if the FBI agent, and detective have a fiber of humanity of their own. It's like a walk in the park, with picnic basket and paranormal slaughter. I understand humor of all veriaties blended in the darkest of stories all to keep the story from turning dehumanizing, and too heavy, but these two protagonist seem to lack empathy or true concern, even when faced with brutal murders.

Either the (troubles) are truly troubling, or aren't they?

As for the acting itself, I'm unable to decern whether it is poor skill, or the poorer dialogue the actors have to work with. The plots are obvious, the conversations are shallow and meaningless, and the reactions of the characters in this story are disturbingly remenicant of an entire town on prozac. Creepy grins and cheeky (lame) banter in the face of disasters.

I gave this series two out of five stars, the second star only because the concept is decent, the execution, not so much.
