Goodbye, Haven. You’re not the most polished of series out there – the graphics were on the cheap side, the sets a little too constructed, and the acting could have been better. But despite it all, I enjoyed the storyline and where it was going. Plus, I have a penchant for sci-fi-esque Stephen King stories, even if they’re just somewhat ‘based’ on it and diverge completely from the original.
I admit, the story can get a little merepek at times (for lack of a better word), but it had its interesting and intriguing moments. Given better quality ingredients and cooks, I’m pretty sure Haven would have elevated itself to a much better level the likes of Fringe, but it did the best it could given the circumstances and the meal was still quite tasty regardless.
If you like odd sc-fi stories like Fringe and Under the Dome, give Haven a try. It’s worth sticking through right to the end to find out what happens to the troubles and to the people of Haven.
I do admit I found the series ending a little too easy, but I am glad they didn’t do one of those reset-and-no-one-remembers-what-happened types of finale. The people of Haven knew what happened, and they continue to live with that memory. And in that little way, it allows the people of Haven to continue to live on, finally free of the troubles.
