    This is terrible television, but I can't stop watching. Just enough SK to keep me starting the next episode. So so so many plot holes & unfinished thoughts, but it's still fun.
    TONS of references.

    Here are the spoilers:

    Little Tall Island
    The Plymouth Fury on the desk.
    "Abby" from Nebraska
    The kid in the rain with the boat @ this sewer
    Derry
    Randal Flagg
    his middle name is Thaddeus
    Sea Dogs
    The Rose and Gun pub
    The mist episode
    I'll keep adding as I find them.

    It gets better and better in subsequent seasons.

    This was/is one of those shows that I slipped out of watching. First 2/3 seasons, I was there. Then I missed the first 2 of the 2011/12 season (thanks to SyFy Channel UK appearing not to advertise the return until Ep 3 was due to air). I recorded the rest of the series, waited for a re-run, grabbed the first couple...and then never got round to watching them. The latest season rolled around that was that. In the end, I ran out of space on the TVR and deleted the overlooked season (because I also realised I couldn't remember what had gone before).
    But I liked the show, so I'll probably catch up via Lovefilm or Netflix at some point. (Ditto for Warehouse 13.)

    Hi mrblonde - I see you have been around since 2010, but welcome to the "new board" anyway! :biggrin2:

    I love Haven. I love the overall mystery. I love the individual episode mysteries. I love the casting. I love its unpredictability. I have become confused about some things like the Guard and the Barn but explanations are always forthcoming :) I have the last two seasons dvr'd. I will delete Walking Dead episodes before I delete Haven episodes.

    Gotta say I am stunned at this announcement. A final season seem unlikely, even a movie seem dicey.

    So 26 episodes is AMAZING! No excuse now to be unable to avoid the The Dead Zone Demise and have Haven end without a satisfying conclusion.

    SPOILERS IF YOU HAVEN'T FINISHED SEASON 4











    I loved the door in the middle of the field. Data-chee data-chum

    As I have not finished the Dark Tower series yet (I'm on book 3) Is the barn a link to the tower? Is the barn THE TOWER? I have to get more of the books under my belt, but that feels right to me.

    Other "dings":

    Mrs. Tull
    Mr. Pearlmutter
    The chapel tower being destroyed.
    The book on the desk by Mike Noonan.
    Not stephen king, but the brother Wade dumping the bodies in the water Ala Dexter (the show he was on)

    I'm going to be sad when I finish season 4. 6 eps. left.

    Love, love, love Haven. It's better than most of the crap on TV that's for sure. I have seen every episode since the first one. Love the characters, love the town, love the stories. Even my wife never misses an episode and she is not a Sci Fi/Horror fan by any stretch of the imagination. Can't wait for the new season!

    I've been rewatching season 3 and season 4 episodes and finished yesterday. Watching the second time was as enjoyable as watching the first time, more so even since there were a couple explanations I'd missed the first time I watched the series. It's going to be really tough waiting for season 5.

    I love this show, as well, and it has become one of my favorites! I agree that each season does get better, and I thought last season was at its best. I love the cast and they have great chemistry together. It's an entertaining show and intriguing. The show has really grown and the mythology has expanded, imo.

    I was completely shocked (but more happy) when SyFy announced that season 5 will have 26 episodes! I can't wait until the fall!! But, I don't know if SyFy announced if season 5 will be its last season, too?

    I did indeed skip the spoilers, mrblonde, (I presume), but I thought, when watching the first season of Haven, this is ok, with a lot of potential, then the thirteenth epi showed up on my screen and this thing took off like a rocket... Haven now competes with Walking Dead for my top show since LOST and Buffy to follow after... well, I still dig me some Supernatural as well... and I miss Fringe....

    I'll have some cool news related to Haven, either later this week or early next.

    Awesome!! Can't wait! Really haven't heard ANYTHING about the new season! :)

    There's some really fun stuff on some of those semi-channels in the wee hours. If you can successfully dodge the infomercials, you might mine a gem. Overwritten stylistic dialogue, sure. A ripe, heaving busom, delivering a line that would make Willy Shake chuckle? Probably.

    Are you still watching? Probably.

    And it's so dark that even your asshat neighbors with their 4 cars on cement blocks are asleep, so enjoy your story where you find it.

    I don't watch "Haven," but I have a question. From what I understand, this is, very loosely based on the book "The Colorado Kid." Because it is so loosely based on it, does Mr. King participate financially in the series?

    I've always been fascinated by the fact that some projects King does not benefit from because of the kinds of rights sold off. If I remember correctly, the "Carrie" remake is not something he directly benefited from (although Ms. Mod had pointed out that increased sales of the book would be a benefit). Will he make money from the remake of "Pet Sematary?" What about all the "Children of the Corn" stuff? Seems unfair he doesn't benefit from all of it.

    It depends upon the language in the contract for the film rights. With many of the earlier works, he wasn't yet savvy about film rights so did not receive a good deal--for him. He--and his film agent--have gotten better about negotiating recent ones. :smile2: Each deal is negotiated separately and I don't know the specifics of the compensation for Haven.

    Haven constantly drops references to his works, so his influence is never very far away... some fairly obscure, like the Kitchener Iron Works from IT....

    Our family just discovered Haven too! We have been watching a couple episodes each night after dinner. We are only in the 1st season, but here are the 'King' references I've noticed so far:

    King's Point (a location '
    lookout' to oversee the town)

    In one of the opening sequences an older document referencing "The Reverend Flagg"

    The character, Duke, completely reminds me of our much loved and well missed, beloved Muskrat, ie Muskie.
