Well, I do not know about other viewers,especially from the United States, but I am not from Newfoundland and I love this show. Even though I am a Tom Selleck fan (Magnum P.I), this is the Canadian show to watch.
I watch not just for Allan Hawco, but for the whole entire cast. I have been to NL, and love the scenery. This is my type of action/drama TV series that I like.
The father love between Malachy and Jake is like the motherly love with my Mother. Getting to know more about each of the characters comes back for more. Just in different situations.
Thumbs up Republic of Doyle. Keep it up as I will love this series for the next several years or so.
