Haven is definitely one of SyFy’s blockbuster original series. Although season one gave us a lackluster first half, the writing, acting, and special-effects all improved by season one’s finale. Last year, Carissa and I reviewed the finale and interviewed producer Charles Ardai.
This season, they upped the star power, the budget, the writing, and the action by ten. I really enjoyed Jason Priestly as Audrey’s charmingly troubled boyfriend; former WWE wrestler Adam “Edge” Copeland as the town’s troubled trouble-fixer; and Tahmoh “Helo” Penikett as Duke Crocker’s troubled hating father.
All of the actors kicked it major league. Lucas Bryant portrays Nathan’s vulnerable toughness with his normal, acting excellence. Emily Rose‘s Audrey developed from last season’s scrappy action hero. Season two’s Audrey grows increasingly distant while uncovering her buried secrets. Eric Balfour plays the gangly shyster, Duke Crocker, with 150% believability; he carries his frame as bar-fight ready. THIS season’s Duke I totally believe had a difficult childhood and NEEDS the multiple hidden firearms. I thank the producers for ceasing to use Balfour as eye candy.
