The second season of Syfy's Haven will premiere in about two weeks. As I write, HBO's True Blood has just started its fourth summer run, and the CW's Supernatural has been renewed for a seventh fall season. We are now so used to having our share of genuine supernatural dramas that it might come as a surprise to many that it wasn't always the case. In fact, the weird and unexplained — for a long time — wasn't considered safe enough to be given free rein in a TV series, and when it occasionally happened, the resulting series rarely ran for more than a season.
