Top 20 New Shows of 2010: #18

My annual TV Awards, the AFT Television Awards, are given out during the summer. But this year, during both the spring and the fall, produced many impressive new television series. As 2010 closes out and 2011 begins, here’s a look back at the best new shows of the year.

#18: Haven

This is a show that I gave up on reviewing early on but continued watching at my own pace. Its Friday night timeslot on Syfy is telling: it’s like “The X-Files” lite with less engaging characters and fairly generic weekly mysteries. Yet there’s something about the town of Haven, and it’s not just that a show with Eric Balfour in the cast has made it to a second season. It’s more so the unquestioning and fiercely brave nature with which Audrey tackles the latest case of weird.
