Fall TV Preview: Syfy’s Haven is Heaven on Earth

Emily Rose and Lucas Bryant of Haven | Syfy

Haven returns Fri., Sept. 21 at 10/9c on Syfy. If you’re not familiar with the show, it’s a one-hour drama based on Stephen King‘s novella The Colorado Kid. 

The story follows Audrey Parker (Emily Rose, Jericho, Brothers and Sisters), a shrewd FBI agent with a lost past who arrives in the small town of Haven, Maine on a routine case. Before long, her natural curiosity lands her smack in the middle of this curious enclave, which turns out to be a longtime refuge for people affected by a range of supernatural afflictions.

Season three picks up right where season two left off. The romance between Nathan (Lucas Bryant, M.V.P., The Vow) and Audrey is starting to blossom, but gets cut short when Audrey is shocked by a Trouble and kidnapped.  Duke’s (Eric Balfour, 24, Skyline) supposed destiny is to kill Audrey, as well as kill off the Troubles, as did his father and grandfather before him.

It’s unclear who kidnapped Audrey, as he stays within the shadows while he interrogates her.  Is it The Colorado Kid?  Is it someone back from the dead?  Most of the season three premiere is spent with Audrey tied up and Nathan trying to find her.

Audrey will likely spend the season trying to figure out her past, present, and future, including why she appears in Haven as a different person with the same face, but no memories of her past dealings in the town. And of course, she’ll continue trying to solve the latest paranormal mysteries that plague the town.

While I enjoy Haven, I think I enjoy it mostly for Lucas Bryant. Let’s be honest. Total eye candy. I tolerate the bad acting that is Eric Balfour – there is just nothing pleasing about that guy, and why he’s had as much success in the business as he’s had is beyond me.

I look forward to seeing the romance blossom between Audrey and Nathan, but with all the Troubles interfering, it won’t be an easy road for them.  Haven is like X-Files Lite, and I’ll take X-Files wherever I can get it.
