    Haven (series based on The Colorado Kid)

    I have seen numerous advertisements for this show, and they keep pumping that is based on The Colorado Kid.

    Has anybody watched it at all? Is it any good?

    I really like the show, not really sure how much it actually has to do with The Colorado Kid though.

    I've been meaning to tune it in one of these, it's on SyFy I think. Mind you there are other shows too I though looked good by their ads, but....again, never tuned them in either.

    I like it but if you don't like syfy channel shows then you might not. Its VERY loosely based on the Colorado kid. Have you read it? Its basically the two old guys sitting around and telling her the mystery of the coloardo kid. how he got there, who killed him, ect. Its just old guys telling her a mystery they didnt solve. The Show starts with the colorado kid dead on the beach story, throws her into a newspaper photo from when he was found and she tries to find out what happened and why the chick in the picutre looks like her but "isnt" She helps the town with their "troubles" (They have supernatural abilites, well A LOT of them do) and shit happens. lol. Barely based on the book but it still is in a way. But I think it is a great show. It is apparently becoming popular with the younger crowd lately and has more of a following than it did in the first few seasons. No book truely based on the coloardo kid could be made as its short and goes no where. I think this was a fantastic way to expand on the town and the characters. Im sure king would approve although I have no heard whether he does or not.

    Teri - There are a lot of SyFy shows that really picque my interest, but am scared to tune them in for the fact that many shows like this turn out to be really lame. Continuum looks cool - haven't watched it. I must say though SyFy (US channel) has a lot of interesting offerings.

    They have some really good programming these days. Some of my favorites (some still going others cancelled)

    Sanctuary
    Haven
    Alpha's
    Warehouse 13
    Eureka
    Anything Stargate

    I've also heard good things about Lost Girl and Defiance. That said I'm a bit out of the loop on these things as I haven't really been watching a lot of TV lately.

    Warehouse 13 does sound pretty neat. I just can't believe how much more offerings the US SyFy has versus the Canadian SciFi (does it even exist?).

    I would like to see more retro shows though - please please please show the original Ultraman!!!!

    That's kinda my biggest problem with ongoing series. I'll really get into them, then they'll go on break for a year and I'll forget to come back.

    Hmmm, seems like I have to look into this as I've totally somehow missed it.

    I left it after the first season. I now avoid anything with David Balfour in it. (Haven was his last chance.)

    I have watched every one of those shows all the way through but still stick to the point that Syfy shows simply do not interest a lot of people. No one else I know would be caught dead watching them. If you can't take the cheesy lines and poor special effects then its not really something you can watch. I like every one of these shows but they are still poor quality in many ways and sanctuary, warehouse 13 and eureka all got pretty bad towards the end. Stargate I love with a passion. All 3 of them even though Atlantis and Universe were not as good. Atlantis seems very canadian too me, maybe they used too many canadian actors and was filmed here. Iunno SG1 just had a much better cast. Universe got the casting right but then kepy them on the damn ship too long and it was kind of boring which is why it got cancelled.

    I didn't know there was a canadian syfy? oh wait, do you mean space? yea they just show reruns of the american stuff..but not necessarily just syfy stuff. They will play anything science fiction. For example they place Supernatural which is a CW show....the only CW show you will ever catch me watching too. I stick by the fact that it was ogirinally the WB. lol

    I can pretty much agree to that. That said I think the not so great special effects is why there aren't very many special effects heavy network shows. The budget just isn't there for TV like it is for movies or HBO.

    Like you I love pretty much anything Stargate, though Universe was my least favorite of those. I think it's problem was it tried to bring the look and feel of Battlestar Galactica to the Stargate series, and it just didn't work.

    Maybe there isn't, and Space is probably what I was thinking of. I only have basic Bell satellite, so don't get much Bell programming.

    I gave up on paying for tv. My landlord has Shaw Direct but I dont even watch it even though it's free. The remote stopped working too n I'm just like oh whatever I dont care. lol. I just DL everything which is now a pain with 8Mb internet but still better than PVR and commercials.

    I "pay" - mind you it's very minimal for what I get.

    Also - with rabbit ears - being situated across the river from Detroit - we actually get a lot of TV channel OTA (Over The Air).

    rabbit ears can pick up the signal still - it's best to get one of those funky looking ones though I think. Rabbit ears work, and you even get an hd signal too I think.
