What's not to love?
Verified purchase
This five year series is splendid in its ongoing tales of the Troubles of Haven, Maine. There is a bit of time travel and other sci-fi and fantasy plot lines of mystery, death, and silliness carried with good nature and fine portrayals by a core group of four actors who are supported by an impressive cast of guest actors who come, stay awhile, and bring great variety to the story lines. Don't just purchase the first season of this as the ongoing thread of the story moves and develops in each season and to skip one is to miss information which will cloudy your understanding of what has happened. In attempting to get it all straight, I rewatched several episodes to clear up plot lines in my head. I love this series and the people who inhabit it.

A SOLID AND SPOOKY BEGINNING!!!!!!!
Verified purchase
My first impression of this purchase is that it is a 21st century tribute to the TWILIGHT ZONE. The town of Haven seems to be a very depressing place, with deaths and strange occurrences happening almost on a daily basis, with not a sighting - ever - of anything good happening to the town or its residents.

The viewer is introduced to the lovely (make that gorgeous) FBI Agent Audrey Parker who has come to town to track down an escaped inmate. It turns out he is killed in his escape attempt but this is just the first in many events which take place here that have a supernatural basis. Keep watching the show and you learn many things concerning the town and its residents; even the hunky town cop that our girl Audrey is paired with is suffering from a condition that prevents him from feeling any kind of physical sensation. But just like the fabled Princess in her isolated tower, maybe he is waiting for the kiss from his one true love to set him free. I hope so, for his sake, as Miss Parker is one hot hottie!

Like the great TV shows of recent times, the cast is comprised of a zany and greatly varied set of mysterious characters, each with their own shady backgrounds that we know nothing about. Obviously as time passes we learn a little about them, but this information is given out in very small doses, not just to keep the viewer interested, but also to let the information be absorbed properly into the viewer’s conscience.

Season one highlights, for me, anyway, are right at the middle. Episode 8, “Ain’t No Sunshine” is the first really spooky episode on the show and features the “Shadow Man” who apparently is accused of killing terminally ill patients before their time is due. The dynamic duo come to the rescue of the town and catch the real killer, who was actually in control of this so-called Shadow Man in the first place.

Episode 9, entitled “As You Were” initially feels like a tribute to the Agatha Christie Classic, “And Then There Were None” but instead of a murderer in the group there is a chameleon. The surprise of the night is in determining who in the party (trapped in the deserted hotel on a dark and stormy night) is actually the shape shifter in question. I did not work it out, but I was too busy enjoying the atmosphere to concentrate on the puzzle.

I am totally in love with this show. To be honest, i was not so sure at the start of season one but with the compelling characters, and Miss Parker’s own family history in question, the spooky episodes, the charm and freedom of living right at the foot of the ocean, all mixed up with what appears to be the paranormal centre of America all makes for an extended set of viewing sessions all set to scare the pants off you.

And we get to watch the Prince being saved by his Princess, just for a change.

Four stars for this beauty. Can’t wait for season 2!!!!!

BFN Greggorio!

A quirky detective-meets-fantasy series
Verified purchase
An FBI agent with a reputation for somewhat reckless behavior on the job gets sent to a small town in Maine where she encounters things that are, to say the least, kinda strange. Throw in a local detective who is "troubled," a pair of cantankerous newspapermen who know a lot more than they write about, an equally cantankerous police chief, a smuggler and an odd assortment of townsfolk and you have "Haven," a quirky combination of fantasy and detective series that features some wonderfully bizarre plots, the delicious Emily Rose and enough mysteries to keep even the most jaded t.v. addict amused.
The series owes its genesis to a novella written several years ago by Stephen King, who can still scare the pants off me whenever I pick up "The Stand." The creators took that novella and expanded on the idea of "Who Killed the Colorado Kid" and in the process have - with King's blessing - fashioned a worthy successor to the first few seasons of "The X Files" for sheer entertainment. The writing is tight, laced with just enough humor to lighten the burden of belief suspension, and some really fine acting by this ensemble cast. I particularly like the portrayals of Vince and Dave, owners of the Haven Herald.
My point: If you haven't seen "Haven" you should. It's well worth the time and money.

X-Files meets Stephen King
Verified purchase
What would you get if you mixed the X-Files and a Stephen King novel? The correct answer is Haven. The show follows the story of quirky FBI agent Audrey Parker who's on the trail of a criminal who mysteriously died in Haven, Maine. Despite its appearance, the sleepy town is home to countless individuals who are afflicted with "The Troubles", and it may hold the key to Audrey's mysterious past as well.
The cast delivers stellar performances while well orchestrated music and a well crafted plot will keep you on the edge of your seat. The first season is only 13 episodes, but you're going to binge the series and buy the next season ASAP. I certainly did.

Town secrets revealed by FBI visitor.

Quote from the back of the package Haven: "Agent Audrery Parker....discovers that {Haven, Maine} is a refuge for people with supernatural afflictions. Now it's up to her to unlock Haven's mysterious secrets, including the hidden truth about her past". I don't remember that secret, but even when I revisit this DVD set, I will be surprised, AGAIN!!! So let's all watch the show!

Not What I Expected.......
Verified purchase
I’m only giving this 3 stars because the product came in repackaged and damaged, even though the description said nothing about the merchandise being “used”. The discs were clearly previously “used” and had finger prints on them, the box was also used and had been “chewed on” in one corner. I will say Amazon was quick to fix the problem on behalf of the seller “Two Thumbs Up”. The show itself is Great and I would recommend it to anyone who likes mysteries!!!

Small, sleepy town. Odd folks. Strange doings. Smokin' hot FBI agent. Yeah, count me in. I'm not sayin' HAVEN is the best show on television, but it's certainly kept me tuning in. HAVEN draws its roots from Stephen King's novella, THE COLORADO KID, and the ironic bit is that this novella has closer ties to the mystery genre than to horror fiction.

Cracks on the road, holes in her past. Deployed to Haven, Maine on a routine investigation, FBI agent Audrey Parker stumbles onto sudden fissures on the road and onto the puzzle of the Colorado Kid, an unsolved, decades-old mystery which may or may not shed light on her murky orphaned past. Agent Parker is intrigued enough and hopeful enough that she opts to bide a while in Haven. She rapidly susses out that this little town hides its fair share of secrets. What makes Haven special is its status as refuge for those with paranormal attributes. The townspeople, in hushed tones, label those with extraordinary abilities as "Troubled" or "Afflicted." Sometime in the past, a plague of supernatural horror - or the Troubles - swept over Haven, and then eventually went away. Today, dormant powers are reviving; there's a strangeness in the air. the Troubles are back. And Agent Parker, with her training and her natural bump of curiousity, may just be Haven's best hope.

The picturesque seaside locations - mostly shot in Nova Scotia - lend texture to the show, serve as an effective counterpoint to the town's dark underbelly. The Troubles are a widely accepted urban legend in Haven, and you often have characters dropping remarks such as "It's the Troubles, isn't it?" or "The Troubles are back, aren't they?" or in Audrey Parker's case, "The FBI never trained you for the Troubles." Season One unveils thirteen episodes which are predominantly stand-alone stories, although recurring sub-plots and themes do run thru the entire season. In the unraveling of Haven's mysteries, Agent Parker regularly comes face to face with otherworldy phenomena, and she's open-minded enough and thinks outside of the box enough that she doesn't get too much ruffled, even though the foul play involved is often of the staggeringly preposterous sort. I don't know that Emily Rose makes for an entirely convincing detective - she's a bit too pretty and glib and breezy - but damn if you don't get drawn into her exploits. Emily Rose is a capable enough actress that she sells her moments of vulnerability, and then there's her intriguing chemistry with Lucas Bryant.

Bryant plays Nathan Wuornos, a local cop who becomes Audrey's partner. Nathan is one of them wounded souls. He's afflicted with idiopathic neuropathy, a condition that prevents him from physically feeling anything. As one may expect, this has made Nathan a detached, almost painfully shy character. Except that he's very sympatico with Audrey Parker. And matchmakers that we are, we start hoping for them to hook up. Now if only that charming rogue and smuggler Duke Crocker (Eric Balfour) would beat feet... He's threatening to steal Nathan's thunder.

When not wallowing in flirtatious moments, HAVEN dives right back into the supernatural procedural. There are some really nifty episodes featuring phenomena such as rapid aging, dream murders, a homicidal shadow, living stuffed people, a person whose moods influence the weather, shapeshifters, a pyrokinetic, an artist whose drawings affect reality, et cetera... not to mention, an assortment of folks sporting ominous tattoos. All of these crazy bits of hoodoo, by the way, are given life by - for television - pretty excellent special effects. I like that Agent Parker, often times, resolves a case without resorting to violence. On the other hand, the way she handles the unrepentant pyrokinetic demonstrates a certain ruthless streak on her part (in "The Hand You're Dealt"). If you're a Nathan fan, then "As You Were" showcases him saving the day. If you're a Duke fan, what the hell's your problem?

Season One is chary with the reveals but we are treated to several big ones, with Audrey, Nathan, and Duke each either unveiling or discovering a huge secret about themselves. Nathan's discovery would make him even more attached to Audrey, the poor sap. For Audrey, curious orphan, it's all about her digging into her blurry past, her search galvanized by a mysterious photograph shown her by those two odd newspapermen when she first arrived at Haven. What she learns in the Season One finale is a humdinger and nicely dovetails into the startling season ending cliffhanger. Favorite episodes are: "Welcome to Haven" (the pilot); "As You Were" (basically a taut "killer-in-the-midst-while-trapped-in-a-confined-space" murder mystery; "Sketchy," because how can you not love an episode in which a guy gets his limbs brutally twisted like pretzels and another bloke has his eyes and mouth cold vanish on him?; and "Spiral" - the very good season ender in which several plot threads come together. Now, in Season Two, if they can only escalate things a bit further and maybe develop these Troubled incidents so that they feed into a more cohesive overarching threat, why, that wouldn't suck at all. HAVEN's biggest problem is that it's harder to connect to the stories when the format insists on these creature-of-the-week stand-alone episodes. And, in fact, "Spiral" does a good job of changing the status quo. So, again, HAVEN may not be the best show on television. But, damn, you cannot keep me away from watching it week after week after week.

HAVEN - THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON contains all 13 episodes on 4 discs, with the following bonus stuff:

- 12 Audio Commentaries with the cast & crew on 10 episodes, and it's a treat that the lead actor, Emily Rose, is very prominent in these commentaries

- "Mythology of Haven" featurette, and how the writers' being inspired by Stephen King's works ties into it (00:05:58)

Paranormal meets Smalltown
Verified purchase
First met this show in an online preview of Episode One at a nameless competitor. Since I grew up 20 miles from Lunenburg the filming location for this show the hair stood up on the back of my head the moment I started watching it. The views of the harbour are classic and the aerial shots give a whole new perspective on a town I know and love. Camped in Lunenburg this summer up the street from where the Bluenose II is being rebuilt and walked the harbour where Duke's boat lies docked with a for sale sign. Town Hall subs as the police station.

Those personal attachments aside the series employs great Canadian actors the two male leads being standouts. Anyone who has gone down to the sea in ships knows that superstition and faith take over when man loses control and despite the most advanced technology man is still powerless to control the sea. Half-million ton ships still plow straight into rogue waves off the Cape of Good Hope and vanish forever. Ships like the Mary Celeste show up sailing themselves with crews that vanished without a trace. Among people who try to make sense of the inexplicable ghosts and hauntings are commonplace. Some of the storylines here begin to strain suspension of disbelief but on the whole are not too far removed from reality. The episode in Season 2 based on the plagues of Egypt taken from Exodus is a case in point. Highly recommended. If it succeeds this show should do wonders for tourism in a World Heritage Community. Weekly it makes me homesick for Lunenburg, Mahone Bay, Chester, and Hubbards.
