    My favorite show which I watched after Being Human. After the last episode, I want to know what happens. Helix does not do it, so far.

    Deleted this series from my DVR when I saw the direction it was taking. Really? Nathan out in the cold and Audrey with LUKE??? Couldn’t get more awful.

    We just adore Haven! It’s really not something that we would normally choose to watch together, but it is a program that everyone in the family (we have a teenager) can watch and enjoy. It’s just creepy enough, just mysterious enough, just lovelorn enough for all of us. Please don’t take it away! It doesn’t seem so much like The Colorado Kid to us (a connection that did get us to start viewing the program), but we are hooked! We really missed it this summer and were so very happy to find it back on the air this fall. Hooray! No more troubles–for us anyway….

    I do not get television out as far as I live. It is too “rural” for cable and too well protected by the terrain to sustain satellite dish. My internet is everything, news, information, and entertainment. I selectivly watch very few broadcast series, Haven is one I follow regularly. It never fails to entertain and keeps me wondering what type of “trouble” will occur next and what “legend” will have ties to the troubles (Wendigo). The search for Audrey’s past is a bit slow though. I’d like to have more hints on how she came to her own mother in that picture, and a bit more information on the steady and trustworthy owners of the local newspaper who have been hinted at being far “older” than they look.
