Netflix Addiction: Haven

By Temper

In Maine there’s a quaint little town with a picturesque view of the ocean. Beyond the harbor lie a town square and a forest. Everyone knows just about every single face in town. This is what Audrey Parker, a special agent from the FBI, finds when arriving in Haven, Maine, on a routine case. However, she soon learns that the town has larger, supernatural problems to deal with.

  Loosely based on “The Colorado Kid”, a novel by Stephen King, Haven airs on the SyFy network. The show revolves around the day-to-day struggles of Audrey and her partner, Nathan, to solve supernatural mysteries and crimes, referred to as “The Troubles” by the townsfolk. Along the way, Audrey, Nathan, and others discover truths about themselves, the town and “The Troubles”. They also run into people with supernatural abilities who are directly, though not usually consciously, causing “The Troubles.” These “Troubles” can range from psychic powers, to bringing machines to life after repairing them, to not feeling any pain or cold, and can even grant a general immunity to other “Troubles”.

  Haven currently spans four seasons, with a fifth season comprising of twenty-six episodes, half of which will begin airing later this year, with the second half set to run in 2015. I’ve been watching a marathon of this show for the past few weeks, going through three to four episodes a night. I definitely recommend it to those looking for a good mystery. Can you solve the mysteries of Haven? Or will you be forced to wait while the answers are slowly revealed, bringing even more questions? There is one thing certain; however, anything can happen in Haven.
