  2. Marcia B says

    This show is a major hit! If SYFY even CONSIDERS canceling, EVER, they are out of their flipping minds!

    I was recovering from a stroke when I happened upon the first Haven episode on SYFY here in England, so I want it to continue, not go the way of HEROS

    I binge watched HAVEN and was sad to see it end, then I discovered they were doing a season 5. What a thrill. I can’t wait to continue the story,

    • mary kenny says

      The show should have ended with season 4. It has gotten ridiculous. It seems like the writers have no idea where they’re going with it. It’s lost it’s integrity. And they must think we’re idiots. The ‘rare’ acer she’s looking for is not rare at all especially in Maine. Acer is a maple tree

    This is a series that SHOULD continue. I hope that someone like Netflix or Amazon Prime picks it up and continues it to a proper, not rushed, conclusion. These networks getting us deeply invested in the stories and characters only to pull the plug a few seasons later, is why I think the above mentioned online streaming companies are going to continue to grow and eventually (hopefully) dominate. I believe I read Yahoo is now getting into the game too an just saved some show from a premature death. NBC’s “Community” I think it is. Congrats to them, their viewers and the talent (cast)

    J delorenzi has it right…. you have an physical age that advances each year and an inside age that is fixed somewhere in the past. I am a 71 year old man with a 25 year old inner self. Still act it too and it does well for me. Others I know are old beyond their years and limit theirselves because of it.

    Haven stretches the mind. I find it quite interesting. Duke especially. I hope they can keep up the interesting “troubles” and expand on the explanation of how they started. Give us more of the local scenery around the coastline. A time portal in a cavern might be interesting.

    Good viewing everyone. Russ

    I just discovered this show about a month ago! I love the character of Duke Crocker!! Eric Balfour is one of my favorite actors. I was bummed when his character was killed off of “Buffy”.. Seen him on here and just had to watch! Glad I did…. Here is to many more seasons! Do more with Duke and Audrey……

    I absolutely LOVE HAVEN. Plots are unique and intriguing. Actors are wonderful. I have loved Eric Balfour since he did the commercial where he was the devil. Not that I like evil. I just admire his ability to become a wide variety of characters. Happy to know it will be back. Merci Beaucoup

  9. says

    I have loved the actors and I never tire of watching it. I have watched all episodes and would love to see more. Oh! By the way I am 70 years old. Your outside gets old, not the brain. I love a good program, well acted and well written
