From Zack Handlen of AV Club:

  • Haven
    “I mention this because Haven, a new SyFy (ugh) original series inspired by a Stephen King novella, is the sort of mildly pleasant escapist fare that I don’t really watch anymore unless I’m paid to do it. Which makes it a little odd for me to review. The pilot isn’t great, but it isn’t awful, either.” Read more.

From Hugh Hart of Wired:

  • Stephen King Novel Spawns Syfy’s Tepid Haven
    “Syfy’s new supernatural dramedy Haven brings its The X-Files-lite-meets-Murder She Wrote storytelling to a ho-hum resolution by the end of its pilot episode, despite the best efforts of sharp star Emily Rose.” Read more.

From Meredith Woerner of io9:

  • Syfy’s Haven smothers the Stephen King influences in its own fog
    “Haven, is loosely based on Stephen King’s The Colorado Kid, and loose is a bit of an understatement. This series should have been merely described as “inspired” by King’s work, and left it at that. So what’s different? Well instead of having the bulk of the series based around the engaging and endearing newspaper staff made up of funny old editors and a young intern in a small town, Syfy has swapped the intern for a hard-nosed FBI agent and demoted the lovely staff to a status similar to that of the Lone Gunmen from The X-Files.” Read more.
