In Season 1 FBI Agent Audrey Parker is sent to Haven, Maine, and discovers that the town is home to a number of people that have mysterious abilities called the Troubles, and that a look-a-like of hers named Lucy was once there and could be her long lost mother.
Emily Rose leads the cast as Parker and gives a strong performance.
Sex and swearing are mild ("ass" is about as strong as the language gets), and drinking and drug use aren't at issue.
The first season of Haven follows FBI Agent Audrey Parker (Emily Rose) as she travels to Haven, Maine to catch an escapee from federal prison.
Will any of those questions actually be answered this season? The thing that the writers told me, really early on, that I was really excited about was, “We’ve set up some pretty serious questions for our audience, and we do not want to be one of those shows that doesn’t give any answers and just frustrates them with more mystery.” So, while the mystery unfolds, you definitely get answers to some of those long questions that have been there since Season 1 and 2.
In Season 1, she thinks she has a mother there and, by the end of it, she finds out that it’s her.
And the writers do a pretty good job at building mystery and intrigue about the source of The Troubles and Parker's past.
However, some of the case-of the-week stuff is pretty formulaic and plays like a bad X-Files rip-off.
For the newcomers that are just joining, there will be some very immediate answers, so it might be interesting for them to go back and see where those answers come from.
The Colorado Kid aspect of the story has always loomed there, but sometimes it has taken a backseat to the immediate story that you’re telling. You feel that way when you’re leading a show and you’re on a set.
Parents need to know that this sci-fi series based on Stephen King's novella The Colorado Kid is eerie and full of supernatural mystery, but not particularly violent.
Law enforcement agents do carry and sometimes draw their guns, but they rarely use them.
And then, the shows actually get a lot bigger and more ambitious, but within all that action – and I’m not just saying this ‘cause I’m a huge champion of it – are the characters’ stories and the relationships. Audrey, being several people, it really sets up a lot of fun things that Haven can do. Is that something that’s going to continue to play out, over the course of the season?
