The first episode of this Syfy show introduces us to Audrey Parker, who is assigned by her boss to go after a fugitive who may have returned to his home town of Haven, Maine. She goes there only to discover that he's dead and washed up on the beach. In a previous scene we see that he had been flung, by an invisible force, over the edge of a rocky cliff.
There's also these weird weather patterns, with fog mysteriously appearing, lightning, and hail. This all ties into an individual who has the ability to control the wind and weather. It's during this episode that Audrey sees a thirty-year old photo of someone who looks exactly like her--and as she's an orphan, raised by the State, she thinks this may be her mother. So she takes some time off and decides to stay in town to investigate this. So the town's sheriff hires her to work with his son, who is also the deputy. The son is rather wooden, which makes sense since he can't feel anything (he's numb all over). Then, there's a story which involves an alcoholic reverend (Stephen McHattie of WHATEVER HAPPENED TO ROSEMARY'S BABY) who may be able to move objects with his mind. However, it turns out to be a foster child his daughter is looking after.
Then, there are the "typical" episodes of a genre television series with recurring characters. There's the one in which men are dying of old age, though they were young the day before. It's basically a twist on the succubus idea and this time there was actually a twist, which was a plus. And there's a weird one in which members of a Hunt Club are being killed by animals--though these animals are the stuffed variety. Let's just say that the stuffing just stops at critters.
I only watched four or five episodes because HAVEN is so generic and middle-of-the-road in terms of a horror/fantasy show. It's like an adult version of EERIE INDIANA and well, I've already seen that program.
