It’s been a while since I’ve done a television show review, with the other being Fringe. Today I’d like to share a great Sy Fy show called Haven. It has a strong female lead, and it’s rated TV-PG. My husband and I have watched this show together since it first aired in 2010.
I really like the setting in Maine, and the characters are lovable. I’ve really never had a problem with this show, as it’s not dark or filled with cursing or sex scenes. The first couple of seasons are light and fun, but the story is beginning to get more intense. The plot is definitely heating up.
The show is about how a bunch of “troubles” has plagued the town on and off for many years. The main character is Audrey, and she is not affected by the troubles. Each episode deals with Audrey and her partner, Nathan, trying to figure out a case dealing with a certain trouble. When I say trouble, it could be anything from people dying when they hear an infected baby cry, a woman who can cause severe pain with her touch, another woman turning everything she eats into cake, and other sorts of crazy and random “troubles.”
Each episode usually gets a different trouble, and we watch as they try to deal with it. As time goes on, we learn about Audrey’s true past (which is a complete mystery to her). We learn where the troubles originated, and many other things.
Right now, we’re at season five, which is split into two years. The first half of the season aired last year, and I expect the second half to begin in September. (I don’t have the official date yet.) I’m eager for it to begin, because the plot has gotten very intriguing.
I recommend this show if you like sy fy and want something different. (It’s definitely different!) You can watch the first four seasons on Netflix. Here’s a trailer for the first season. After watching the trailer, I now remember how the show portrayed a priest filled with hatred wanting to end the troubles in the wrong way. I had forgotten about that, because that part of the show only lasted for one or two seasons. So there is a bit of stereotypical (hateful) religion in the beginning of the series.
