Ah, right here we are again, in my favorite quirky tiny town of Haven, Maine.
This is practically it folks, Haven: Season 5, Volume 1 is the second to the final time we’ll get to hang out with Audrey, Nathan, Duke, and the rest of those crazy cats who call this troubled community home. For you Haven virgins, here’s a rundown of this Syfy series: In Haven specific citizens are afflicted with some thing known as the “Troubles” these are skills beyond their manage that can wreak havoc on the small town. Each and every 27 years, Haven is thrown into turmoil due to these “Troubles.” Even so, there comes along a beautiful young lady who assists them through these hard occasions. Then soon after calming the “Troubles”, she vanishes as mysteriously as she came, into this strange barn like structure -and voila! The “Troubles” disappear, remaining dormant for another 27 years when, you guessed it, the woman reappears and does it all more than once more. Nevertheless, each and every time she returns, she has a new identity and no memory of her last pay a visit to to the seaside town. On the surface Haven appears to be a nice location to pay a visit to difficulty is, many individuals who go to this beautiful little town frequently leave in a physique bag. It would be prudent for the curious, to steer clear of it altogether. And that’s Haven in a nutshell.
Haven: Season 5, Volume 1 finds the gang dealing with Mara (Emily Rose, Jericho), who was after Audrey (Also played by Emily Rose), but by a strange twist of fate, was turned back into the evil one particular that initially lived in Haven hundreds of years just before. Mara’s purpose is to retrieve her partner in crime, William (Colin Ferguson, Eureka), who was pushed by way of a doorway to an additional dimension, so the two can continue to terrorize Haven like they utilised to do in the undesirable old days. In the meantime, Nathan (Lucas Bryant, The Vow), Duke (Eric Balfour, Skyline), and Dwight (Adam Copeland) are attempting to maintain a entire new crop of “Troubles” from killing the whole town, while also making an effort to convince Mara/Audrey to aid quit the quite “Troubles” she produced. It really is never a dull moment in Haven.
Haven: Season 5, Volume 1 is an action-packed 4-disc, 13 episode Blu-ray set that begins just exactly where the earlier season’s cliffhanger ended. An earthquake has struck Haven (Just when you think the town has noticed it all), right after the aforementioned Audrey, Nathan, Duke, and Dwight along with brothers Vince (Richard Donat) and Dave Teague (John Dunsworth, The Shipping News), and Duke’s major squeeze Jennifer Mason (Emma Lahana), brave a trip down to a cave underneath the old lighthouse, to summon a door that will send Mara’s major squeeze William back to what ever the hell he came from, hopefully ending the “Troubles.”
But you know nothing at all ever works out that straightforward in Haven. At the extremely least William is gone but in the approach, Audrey is switched into Mara (She’s like the evil cousin on Bewitched, only worse), and Season five becomes all about keeping the townsfolk alive, and retrieving the memory of Audrey from her malevolent alter ego. We nonetheless get a boatload of those weekly mysteries that want to be solved, but the shows tone is darker, simply because now there is no Audrey to help with the “Troubles”, and it seems as if they ain’t going away any time soon. In reality the “Troubles” have morphed into some thing the town has in no way experienced ahead of. This is simply because Audrey didn’t go back into the barn as she was supposed to, and considering that this mysterious barn was then destroyed (Thank you, Nathan), Havenites are in brand spanking new territory, and the old approaches just never function any longer. What is this weird, little town to do now?
If you care something about the characters of this series, Haven: Season 5, Volume 1 will have you experiencing the tension correct along with them. There’s nevertheless that fantastic chemistry between cast members, still the strength of Nathan and Audrey’s really like for each and every other really like that sadly has led to the events that have made every single resident of Haven vulnerable to this new strain of “Troubles” (actions have consequences). Is this the end of the little town off the Coast of Maine? Will Duke and Nathan be in a position to get Audrey back? Will their love survive the intrusion of the evil force referred to as Mara? And most importantly, is there any hope to rid Haven of the “Troubles” for excellent? Tune in subsequent week and locate out. Much better yet, acquire Haven: Season 5, Volume 1 and see how the residents survive to live one more day, or at least till the series’ finale bids Haven a fond farewell.
Haven: Season five, Volume 1 (Blu-ray) is a 1.78:1/1080p presentation, with crystal clear pictures of the lovely Nova Scotia seaside, where the series is filmed. The DTS-HD Master Audio is boss, highlighting the great score, and the beautifully haunting theme song (which I enjoy). Extras contain 13 behind the scenes featurettes, two Haven Origin shorts, and audio commentaries. This is a great program, underrated and seemingly lost amongst larger profile cable shows. Haven is show that has regularly shocked and entertained its extremely loyal following since the very first episode. If you get a opportunity, begin from the starting, and work your way to Haven: Season 5, Volume 1, I guaRONtee you will not be sorry.
Haven: Season five, Volume 1 is just as creative and intense as it always has been. With that perfect blend of police procedural, and paranormal events, in addition to an comprehensive mythology surrounding the show, this unique series manages to get far better with every subsequent season. The writers consistently give their audience memorable characters and a world we really like obtaining lost in more than and more than once more.
I’ve said it just before and I will say it once more, this show is Not Guilty.
Did we give Haven: Season five, Volume 1 (Blu-ray) a fair trial? yes / no
