    Been seeing promos on SyFy for this new series "based on The Colorado Kid by Stephen King." I don't know much more yet... do we already have another a thread about it? Comments, anyone?

    I saw the pilot last night and it looks promising. Dosn't look much like Colorado Kid yet though...but that might change.

    I get a "Dead Zone" vibe from it (Nicole de Boer's presence helps). I like Duke, though the main character is a bit on the brash/brusque side. I definitely wouldn't let her borrow my car. Definitely a long way from Colorado Kid, but it pairs up well with Eureka on a Friday night.

    The acting seems stiff and kinda amateurish from the main character(female..plus when she talks..its so monotone). Kinda feels like a ripoff of Xfiles at the moment.

    It doesn't have much with Colorado but it was obvious after what creators said about it.
    But it could be great series in my opinion, it's definitely similar to The X Files and I am big fan of it. I like main characters, I like Audrey's biting tongue

    Haven't watched it yet. Have it taped, though. If it has an x-file vibe though I may love it. Don't really know much about it but I figured if it was Uncle Steve's vision, I have to at least try it.

    I haven't seen it yet. (Actually, I haven't read the Colorado Kid, either. As for differences, that was intended to be the case. And King himself wanted Haven to have a supernatural element to the show, too.) I'm not sure if it's even available over here in the UK yet, although I get the impression it was going to be a global release.

    Seems like my cup of tea anyway.

    Episode 2 was pretty bad, I thought. Bad acting, bad plot...nice scenery!

    I thought the exact same thing! The main character was kind of annoying to me and her "shady" boss reminded me of X-Files. It almost seemed like they were trying to cross X-Files and Heroes...yet failed.
    Tis a shame cause I was excited to see this.

    the show kinda reminds me of fringe in a way. only no mad scientist and parallel universes to contend with but you never can tell. seems like the stories they have come up with so far are about people with special abilities. hope that is not the whole premise of the series because it will get really old real quick.

    well that's my 2 cents for now.

    While watching this on cable on demand I noticed something in the opening credits. There is a newspaper article with the name of a person named Reverend Flagg. I thought that was interesting.

    I just caught that this week, too. The third episode was a bit better than the second, but it's still a bit weak. Nowhere near as good as The Dead Zone series was.

    Unless this gets a little more King-like and less X-Files-like, I think I'll remove this series from my DVR, to be honest. It's not bad, but there are much better TV shows out there to watch. And since this has very little to do with King, even that novelty has pretty much worn off already.
