Haven

Post  Raksha on Thu Dec 08, 2011 10:12 pm

Restarting the topic for this show. Did anyone else watch the Christmas special? I loved it! I thought it was cute and surprisingly light for a show that opened with a woman being chopped in half. Duke dressing up as Santa to cheer Audrey up because Nathan told him she was having a hard time was really sweet. And I loved Duke and Nathan ending up under the mistletoe and then fighting over Audrey's present. Audrey and Nathan had some nice moments too. Also, for some reason I found it completely hilarious how confused everyone was by Audrey and how irritated Audrey was over the Christmas in July issue.

I think more of my shows should do mid-hiatus specials like this. It would make the agony of waiting somewhat easier.

I watched it. I really enjoyed having a one-off episode halfway between seasons. It was a perfect way to introduce new viewers to the show. It had a sweetness with the ending but enough of the creepiness of a regular show with the lady getting sliced in half.

"It's a dog with antlers! Antlers!" Heh. I do love me some Duke.

I came into this show intending to just check out a few episodes and was eventually won over by the chemistry between the actors and the quirkiness of the characters. I'm glad Thor Dwight has gotten more screen time because he's awesome, and the actor is pretty good in the role, I have to say, considering the majority of his acting experience seems to have been as a wrestler.

I finally caught up on the most recent season. I loved the Christmas special! It had a bunch of really fun moments, as well as the usual creepiness. I loved that Duke and Nathan had to share the Christmas gift. Hee!

Also, I love that Eric Balfour is still alive...this has to be a record for him!

Does anybody know when it's coming back?

I love the way they work in a Steven King reference into every show.

I know they just started filming S3 last week so I'm thinking a couple of months, anyway. Maybe fall-ish?

I don't know if anyone else is still watching this but I just saw that the last two episodes of the season are playing on Thursday 8 and 9 pm EST. They delayed them because apparently the penultimate epi is set in a school and it was set to air the week of the Newtown shootings so they pulled them out of respect. Just FYI because I didn't realize they were going to show them this week.

So I'm really digging the new season. I feel a little guilty for finding Nathan so hot when the whole reason for his scruffy give-no-fucks attitude is due to severe depression and guilt. I'm loving how he and Duke aren't even pretending they don't like and care about each other anymore. And the end of this last episode made me really, really happy because

Spoiler:
it's still Audrey! I think I would have liked the Lexi character if it was someone else, but I loved Audrey so much that, since there could only be one, I was kind of upset when it seemed like she didn't remember being Audrey. But she does! And now Duke knows! Audrey is a smart cookie for playing dumb about the whole situation there in Haven. It gives her plausible deniability and gives them a little bit of breathing room to figure out another solution to the various problems in Haven.

What the hell happened to Vince and Dave? They used to be such goofy guys with just a touch of scheming. Now they are just creepy. And I hate Jordan so much. She makes me ragey. I saw the actress in a commercial the other day and vowed never to buy whatever she was selling.

Jordan is just such a downer. They really have changed her character for the worst this season. Every time she shows up in an episode the mood just goes sour.

I was at the Haven panel at NYCC and it was so much fun. The cast sang a cute song, they "comic-con" married a couple and when it was over I hugged the whole cast.

I'm glad you guys are hating Jordan too. Last season she was interesting, dammit! Why did they make her this one-note kill Nathan harridan? And agree on the Vince and Dave. Making V/D (how many seasons and I still don't know which is which) the head of the secret society was another bad turn.

Upside new good stuff, I really like the addition of Dwight the sheriff. I'm not a WWE watcher and I know those guys are actors but I expected him to be OTT and instead he's very nuanced. I also like the addition of barn girl(?), I like her character and it takes away from the D/N/A love triangle that was never a good idea. And I like the season arc main plot. Audrey's back, she's hiding it, and Duke's the only one who figured it out!
I hugged the whole cast.
So cool! I'd've hugged Nathan extra hard.
