Haven: Review

The new Syfy channel's identifying mood seems to be whimsy. Sure, Caprica is grandly grim in the manner of the former Sci-Fi network's Battlestar Galactica, but the Syfy brand is more comfortable with shows like Eureka. Here and there, however, certain shows stand out. Among them are the second season of Warehouse 13 and the premiere of Haven, a series based on the Stephen King novella The Colorado Kid.

When Warehouse 13 debuted last season, I was put off by its ditzy tone and labeled its pilot episode an unholy cross between The X-Files, Bones, and Raiders of the Lost Ark. But Warehouse improved as it went along.

And a fine villain played by Roger Rees was introduced.
