Haven: Who, What, Where Wendigo

After last week's D episode, we get another. Poor continuity, poor plotting, inconsistent characterisation: why is this show so uneven?

SFScope has a fantastic review of this episode that is a lot more measured and detailed than I have time to be and which pretty much sums it up. You can read it here

This show has so much potential and there is a part of me that truly loves it. The other part wonders why I keep tuning in to something that's only half good.

After a much stronger start to this season and some truly great episodes, Season 2 of Haven seems to be careening off track; substituting contrivance for craft and using poor characterisation to drive the story forward. It's damn disappointing and I can only hope that the last few episodes pick up.
