This show is based on Stephen King's novella, "The Colorado Kid," and centers on a small town in Maine called Haven where cursed people try to live normal lives in exile. As their curses start coming back, FBI Agent Audrey Parker is sent in to try and control the forces and try to unravel the mysteries of the town.

I don't think anyone will be watching (besides BigFoot), which is why I created a season thread instead of an episode thread.

So if you want to make threads for this show, it's all yours. I probably will stop watching after the pilot anyway.

I'll definitely watch tonight and we'll see about the future... not going in with any preconceptions at all so should eb able to judge pretty unbiasedly.

This might be the something different I'm looking for. We'll see, but I'll probably miss it as I forgot to set my DVR and I'm out tonight.

Oh what? I thought this about the town that was sealed in the dome from the Simpsons Movie. Hell, I just saw that book prominently displayed at Target even though it came out a year or so ago. This doesn't sound as interesting.

Not to impressed Emily Rose looks good though, and good to see Nicole de Boer again.

Yes, must say Emily Rose is very beautiful, and Nicole is looking cute as ever! That women just keeps getting more beautiful.

Well, it was ok, some mystery, not as good as Eureka though. I guess I'll keep watching maybe, since it comes on right after Eureka, but don't hold your breath.

A bit underwhelming for a pilot. I guess it's like a stationary X-Files or Fringe (which would make it Twin Peaks), only with a SyFy budget. Also a bit of "Smallville shortcut" writing where they don't know how to get from A to C so they just ignore B all together.

Don't know if it'll keep me interested enough to watch it for the duration, but it's only 13 episodes.

Too bad this wasn't on a premium cable network, otherwise the scene where Emily Rose had no pants might've looked differently.

Well, the pilot was decent. I didn't love it or anything like that, but for now I'll keep watching. It might have been a different story of Emily Rose wasn't the lead though. I'd probably bail on the show after the pilot in that case.

Not a King fan but might take a gander at this — sounds intriguing.

Re: "Haven" (new SyFy series starring Emily Rose) - Discussion & Spoil

I taped it, since it was on right after Eureka, and I was curious. It was pretty good. I like the cast; Emily Rose was probably the weakest of the leads, but she was pretty good. I like the New England setting (even if it's filmed in Canada, it still looks right). Kind of strange, though, that the pilot itself gives little indication of where the series is going, aside from the mystery photo (which can't be the entire premise). It seems more like Emily is going to be a Kolchak-type character, running into all kinds of occult stuff-- which is cool, but a small coastal city is an odd setting for that.

It was pretty decent. Nothing great but not horrible either. I'll keep watching.

Also, had no idea that was Nicole de Boer. She looked fantastic. I knew i knew her but couldn't place her. I think she looked prettier here than she did on DS9.
