'Haven' - 'Ball and Chain' Recap

eric balfour haven syfy(S01E05) Score one for 'Haven.'

This episode managed to keep me pretty engaged and entertained despite the usual drowsy pacing and clichéd procedural plotting.

Yep, it was a "rapid aging" episode -- an old sci-fi staple that woulda seemed stale even if 'Warehouse 13' didn't do one a few weeks ago – but I still enjoyed this ep. It gave me hope that 'Haven' will become a better show in the weeks to come.

I enjoyed the chemistry between Emily Rose and Eric Balfour, and this week's mystery actually revolved around one of the show's central characters instead of a no name guest star.

The stakes were higher than usual, and we got some needed character development for Balfour's character, the trashy townie Duke Crocker.

'Haven' Set Visit: There's More Than Meets the Eye in This Small Town

by Chris Jancelewicz, posted Jun 29th 2010 2:00PM

Let's go over all the elements one needs for a Stephen King book-to-TV adaptation. Sleepy, sorta-eerie east coast town? Check. A cast of characters whose secrets have yet to be uncovered? Check. A collection of strange occurrences that no one can really explain? You'd better believe it. SyFy/Canwest's offering, 'Haven', which is based on Stephen King novella 'The Colorado Kid', has all these elements and more.

TV Squad visited the set of 'Haven', which is filming this summer just outside of Halifax, Nova Scotia, in the towns of Chester and Lunenburg. These small, romantic-looking towns are playing the part of Haven, Maine, the central locale of the TV show. With harbors and inlets aplenty, Chester and Lunenberg are boating and sailing towns, which is a definite plus considering how big a role boats play in 'Haven'.

'Heroes' Director Boards Syfy's 'Haven'

by Mike Moody, posted Apr 26th 2010 12:45PM
syfy logoAdam Kane, who directed episodes of 'Heroes' and 'The Mentalist,' is diving back into genre TV with Stephen King's 'Haven.'

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the director has singed to helm the pilot for Syfy's upcoming supernatural series, based on King's novella, 'The Colorado Kid.'

The project, which centers on an FBI agent investigating a murder in a creepy town in Maine, has snagged Emily Rose, Lucas Bryant, Eric Balfour and Richard Donat for key roles. Rose, who chatted with us about the show last week, plays the agent who, she said, is also trying to solve a personal mystery that's "driven her whole life."

'Haven' has some strong ties to the 'The Dead Zone,' the last TV show adapted from King's work. Show producers Shawn Piller, Lloyd Segan and Scott Shepherd are all 'Dead Zone' vets who guided that series through six respectable seasons on USA. Time will tell if 'Haven,' which is also being pitched to networks abroad, will have a similar shelf life.

The series is set to premiere later this year.

Emily Rose Gives a Sneak Peak Into Syfy's 'Haven'

by Bryan Reesman, posted Apr 21st 2010 5:04PM
Emily Rose of SyFy's 'Haven'Stephen King stories practically never get turned into weekly television shows. Adaptations have almost always been done as theatrical or television movies or mini-series, and only one has gone the weekly series route: 'The Dead Zone'. At least that lasted a good six seasons. The eight-episode 'Nightmares and Dreamscapes,' which was based on eight short stories, sort of counts, while the planned adaptation of the epic book 'Under The Dome' might get a 10- to 12-episode cable run. Neither of those, however, had or has long-term potential.

Set to begin shooting in April and hit the airwaves in July, Syfy's 'Haven,' inspired by the King novella 'The Colorado Kid,' aspires to become only the second King adaptation in regular TV series form. Perhaps it will generate a paradigm shift?

According to star Emily Rose, who spoke to AOL at last week's Syfy Channel Upfront, there are 13 episodes of 'Haven' planned for season one, and she hoped it might extend beyond that.

Laura Prepon'That '70s Show' alum Laura Prepon is eyeing a return to television with a co-starring role in ABC's 'Awkward Situations for Men.' Prepon has signed on to play Danny Wallace's wife, Meg, in the comedy series, about a British TV personality who has trouble fitting in when he moves to America. Meg, meanwhile, sets up at a smoothie shop run by her former fling, played by Matt Letscher. It sounds like it'll be just as awkward for the women, too. [Hollywood Reporter]

Gone Too Soon: Jericho

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 5th 2009 11:28AM
Jericho
The modern poster-child for a show that's "gone too soon" is Jericho. The impassioned fans buried CBS under a ton of nuts, which got the show renewed for a shortened second season. Your mileage of the quality of that season may vary, but the fact remains that the fans did something none of these internet campaigns today will be able to.

What people don't realize is that when Jericho came back for the second run, the ratings weren't any better than when the first season ended. So when they cancel your favorite show and you start mailing in bizarre objects and setting up your web petitions because "it worked for Jericho," remember that the networks remember Jericho as well. They remember that it failed to find a sizable audience twice.

ER gets new interns, and other casting notes

by Brett Love, posted Jun 17th 2008 9:41AM

Shiri ApplebyER has a new group of interns ready for their final season. Chief among them for me is Shiri Appleby. I still have fond enough memories of Roswell that I'm interested to see her cast for that reason alone. She'll be joined by Julian Morris. The two will play siblings Daria and Andrew Wade, a pair that have decidedly different work ethics. Also eager to learn at County General will be Emily Rose (Brothers & Sisters, Jericho) as the ambitious, controlling, Tracy Martin. Rounding out the quartet of interns is Viktor Rasuk (Stop-Loss) as the nervous Ryan Sanchez.

In other casting news, Paul Campbell (Battlestar Galactica) is set to be the new head research tech at Knight Industries on Knight Rider. A casting move that should give the show some much needed help. On The Sarah Connor Chronicles Leven Rambin (All My Children) will take on the role of Becky, a potential love interest for John. And over at Numb3rs, Sophina Brown (Shark) will try to fill the spot left when Diane Farr's Megan Reeves left the team at the end of last season. Her role as a junior agent is said to be recurring, with the possibility of becoming a regular.
