Haven was down 0.1 versus last season to a 0.3 and it was also down in viewers. Not good, I thought it was going to be up since I heard a lot of buzz from the Halloween episode, but maybe it was Sandy? I don't know, I hope that the ratings go up this week. You can make it happen. Adult rating: 0.3 Viewers: 1.405 million
When I used to have a life, Halloween was one of my favorite
holidays. With the costumes, crisp air and crunching leaves what isn't
there to like? Now that I don't play with costumes, I get to live
vicariously through television. "Real Estate" was an extraordinary haunted house story wrapped inside of a Halloween celebration and I loved it. Haven made me so happy!
The best thing about the episode was that it put all members of this
extremely talented cast together for the majority of the show. When I
interviewed Kate Kelton,
she said this type of episode is done as a cost saving measure, because
it is low on production costs. If it costs less to have them all
together, then I'm all for more of these brilliant ensemble pieces. Did I
mention it was directed by Jason Priestley? Apparently he enjoyed his
turn as Chris Brody so much in season two that he can't stay away.
Nothing says Halloween like a haunted house. And nothing says Haven like a Troubled house. We get both in Haven's holiday episode, "Real Estate."
Teenagers Should Just Stay Home on Halloween If
you believe television, teenagers should never, ever leave their homes
on Halloween night. They especially shouldn't do so in the company of
the opposite sex. And if alcohol gets involved, well then, they're done
A couple of teens, Chad and Little Bo Peep, prove this by
wandering into an abandoned house for mischief and the sex and stuff. Of
course, this ends badly with Chad disappearing and Bo Peep running off
for help. Getting into the Halloween Spirit Audrey,
Duke and Claire are meanwhile attending the Teagues' Halloween party.
Duke and Audrey seem to be there under duress, lacking costumes and
resorting to spiked punch to survive the night. So of course they leave
to help as soon as Bo Peep shows up with her tale of horror.
dressed as a cheerleader/vampire slayer, goes along too. Because...
Actually, I'm not sure why she goes. But that doesn't matter.
Nathan, meanwhile, is still at the police station, pretending that the law is something we care about on Haven these
days. It isn't, of course. So it's no surprise when Jordan shows up and
whisks away the police chief for an evening of beers at the cemetery.

John Dunsworth and Richard Donat, who star as Dave and

In "Real Estate", a special Halloween episode of Haven, the things you own, own you, says John Dunsworth.
Airing Nov. 2 at 10 p.m. on Showcase, the episode, directed by Jason
Priestley, was filmed at a house a couple of kilometres outside of
Chester reputed to be haunted.Dunsworth has played Dave Teagues, who with brother Vince (Richard
Donat), owns the local paper The Haven Herald, for all three seasons on
the South Shore-shot show. He describes the house as “gothic, big and scary.”
“I know the crew felt claustrophobic and couldn’t wait to get out of the house because of the presence they said they felt.”
Donat says he doesn’t think anyone saw anything in particular, but the house had doors and windows in odd places.
“It’s a very strange place. Someone told me it was a stagecoach stop on the old road.”
I know "Double Jeopardy"
wasn't supposed to be funny - after all, people were being attacked for
their wrong doings in very appropriate ways - but Duke was on fire and I
wanted to laugh at everything he said. So what was so darn humorous?
It started out with Duke seeing what looked like a Grecian Goddess
slicing his tires. We later learned she was attacking people for their
wrongs, scooping out the eyeballs of a peeping tom, breaking all the
bones of a woman who shook her baby. Not funny.
Then Duke raised his hand and said, "parking tickets." Seriously?
Tell me that's not funny. She got him for something else as well, and he
was really worried about that little murder he committed to save the family of organ snatchers a few episodes back, but it would happen that someone would frak up Duke over parking tickets. Hilarious!
When she blew to pieces of plaster when Audrey shot her, we learned she was the incarnation of Lady Justice herself.

You don't screw with justice in Haven. Because Justice will screw you right back.
The Trouble of the Week in "Double Jeopardy" turns out to be a golem -- not a Gollum (sorry, Lord of the Rings
fans) -- created by a disgruntled court transcriptionist named Lanette.
After years of watching Bad People go free and staring at a mural of
Lady Justice on the wall, Lanette unconsciously sends the image after
those who got away with it.
This includes a perverted peeping Tom
(eyes gouged out), an alleged child abuser (22 broken bones) and a
parking-ticket violator named Duke Crocker -- who gets his tires
Things get really bad when Justice, Duke's own "Troubled
stalker" trashes the Grey Gull (because Duke's liquor license was
invalid) and then comes after Duke yet again after the man is falsely
accused of an assault. Audrey manages to shoot Lady Justice on this
occasion, but the only result is the woman crumbling into pieces. And
then she comes back to finish the job.
Audrey and Nathan briefly
think that the Troubled perpetrator is Judge Boon, since all of the
attacked people had gone through his court. But that theory goes up in
smoke when the mildly corrupt judge is found impaled by the scales of

NEW YORK – October 15, 2012 – Syfy’s popular series Haven

directed by Jason Priestley (Call Me Fitz,
Beverly Hills 90210). In the episode,

Holloway, a troubled man bent on vengeance against one of Haven’s own.
Haven, based on the novella The Colorado Kid from renowned author
Stephen King, follows former FBI agent Audrey Parker, who becomes a cop in the
small town of Haven, Maine, and soon discovers the town’s many secrets, which
also hold the key to unlocking the mysteries of her lost past.
From leading independent studio
Entertainment One (eOne), Haven is co-commissioned by Shaw
Media in Canada and globally via Universal Networks International (UNI).
The creative team behind Haven
includes executive producers John Morayniss (Rookie Blue, Hell on Wheels)

who also developed the series.
Thanks to Syfy for providing this information on their Digital Press Tour in Toronto.
For the first time I’m attending the SyFy Digital Press Tour as it lands in Toronto,
and based on the dinner alone tonight at C5 restaurant inside the Royal
Ontario Museum, it’s a fantastic event for folks like me who love genre
television. Gathering together digital press folks from across
North America (and there were a couple of guys there from Germany as
well), the SyFy Digital Press Tour gives media types a bit of time with
stars, and on the sets for some of SyFy’s big shows. This year, as the event is in Toronto, we’re headed on set tours tomorrow of Warehouse 13 and the new series Defiance, but we also had a chance to mingle and chat over dinner tonight with the stars of Being Human and Haven. Taking time out from their schedules were Lucas Bryant, Eric Balfour, and Adam Copeland (better known as Edge) from Haven, and Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath, Sam Huntington, and Kristen Hager from Being Human. Early on Lucas Bryant’s wonderful wife Kirsty Hinchcliffe
started chatting with me, and we had a nice discussion with Bryant
after a little bit, but I didn’t find a lot of time to speak to anyone
else from Haven, unfortunately. As a former East Coaster, it
was fun to chat about the Maritimes though, but we didn’t get a lot of
time before Bryant had to do some photos and then dinner was served.
Excellent news! Haven was up one tenth from last week's episode to a 0.5 in the 18-49 adult ratings. It was also up in viewers. Great job fans! Keep watching live and let's repeat it next Friday! Adults 18-49: 0.5 Viewers: 1.724 million Source: TV by the Numbers

It’s Friday and we're finishing off this week with an extra-special

shakes up Twitter's popular acronym with a SABS twist.
The Sea and be Scene #FFF
is your weekly chance to discover the four favourites of your favourite
East Coast folks. The four questions will always stay the same...only
the folks will change and for this week… We're featuring a fella who has called Nova Scotia's South Shore home for the past 3 summers and whose troubled character continues to lay down the law as HAVEN begins season 3.
Attention US Fans! Once again, we need your support.

night and use the hashtag #EscapeToHaven. Remember that if you want

With the MLB postseason already in, Haven was up from last week to a 0.4 in the 18-49 adult ratings. It was also up in viewers. Which is good news! Please keep watching and I guess that if it averages 0.4-0.5, chances are it will be renewed. 18-49 Adults: 0.4 Vieweres: 1.572 million
Just when you think the Troubles can't get any more twisted and confusing on Haven, we get an episode like "The Farmer." New faces, creepy organ removal and heroes in crisis make this one of the darkest Haven episodes yet! So why not relive it with this review?
The Existential Angst of Audrey Parker
surprisingly, considering that she was told in the last episode that
she had only 49 days left in Haven, Audrey is in a bad mood throughout
"The Hunter." Duke deals with this pretty well, mostly because he knows
exactly what's wrong. Nathan, on the other hand, spends a good part of
the episode having no idea why Audrey is being cold, distant and
honestly kind of mean.
Audrey Parker really isn't at her finest
here. It seems that her fighting spirit has been crushed by yet another
"Haha! You're not a real girl!" Haven twist. Even when both Duke and Nathan urge her to resist fate and plot her own destiny, Audrey isn't interested.
The end result? Audrey is on the outs with both of her Haven guys. Nathan can't take being pushed away yet again -- even with good reason -- and Duke... Well, let's just say Duke has a very good reason to be angry with Audrey by the end of "The Farmer."
If you recall, in my review last week I had the sneaking suspicion that Audrey would push Nathan away because of The Hunter. I also thought she would fail to tell him about it.
As "The Farmer"
began, she had yet to tell him, but when she discovered he was making
plans for them months in advance, she surprised me and put it out on the
table. Thank you, Haven, for doing the unexpected and proving me wrong. That's only one of the many reasons I cannot get enough of the show. Duke's desire to help Audrey is not only admirable, but he has really
great advice. Sure, some of it seems like mere words, goodies like 'I
choose how to live my life and so can you...' but he's not far off the
mark when your residence is Haven. Duke's destiny was to kill the
Troubled and he proved he didn't have to follow it. Disappearing, reappearing and having no memory of your Trouble, as
Audrey does, might have a different nuance to it, but something tells me
the Teague brothers have more to share that can help in that regard.
They could have a lot of information they're holding back on the why of
her leaving and the how. Time will tell. The Trouble this week was pretty disgusting. Keep reading at TV Fanatic
Best known as the King of Horror, Stephen King inspired much of modern
day supernatural film and television; and many may not realize it but
HAVEN is based on the Stephen King story “The Colorado Kid.” However,
HAVEN is not your typical horror series. There are elements that
certainly terrifying, but really HAVEN is a series that takes viewers on
a supernatural thrill-ride of mystery, with wonderful homages and nods
to the work of Stephen King laced throughout. In fact, in every fiber
of HAVEN, Kings’ presence is felt — and it makes for a fine layer of
intrigue and suspense.
HAVEN is about a small town set in Haven, Maine where there is
mysterious goings on called the “troubles.” More specifically, some of
the town’s inhabitants have begun to demonstrate supernatural abilities,
both for good and for evil; which has spurned a handful of the
townsfolk investigating the cause of the “troubles” and whether there is
a cure. Led by the local police chief and an ex-FBI agent, as well as a
few other handy citizens helping out, each week it is a struggle to
help contain the “troubles” and ensure the safety of everyone. The
“troubles” may be anything from deadly doppelgangers, nightmares coming
to life, stuffed creatures reanimating, killer shadows, cannibals,
mummification, time-loops, demonic trees, firestarters and
shapeshifters. For police chief Nathan Wuornos (Lucas Bryant), his
“trouble” means he cannot physically feel anything – he cannot touch or
be touched. So while HAVEN continues to explore a variety of creepy and
yet haunting stories of those affected by the “troubles” and the agony
it wreaks in their lives – it does not necessary end well for those
caught up in these events. For some, living in the town of Haven is
not a blessing; it is a curse and one that they desperately would love
to have gone from their lives.
Hello Canadian fans! We have an all new episode of Haven, episode 2 "Stay" airs tonight on Showcase. If you can, join the fun on Twitter, you made it trend last week, make it trend tonight. Hashtag is #EscapeToHaven Enjoy!
