SIX OF THE BEST… Haven troubles

The “troubles” are supernatural afflictions affecting the townspeople of Haven, Maine, on a show called Haven that originally aired on SyFy. The show is now on Netflix, and I figured I should finish watching it after only making it through two seasons during first-run. So I did, and then I made a list of the troubles. Well, some of them. Six, to be exact.

And yes, there’s a reason I put Shatner in this post.
