It wasn't until the fifth season that Allan Hawco, the show's star and among its producers, helped foster a deal with Trifecta Entertainment of Los Angeles to put the show into United States syndication. According to Hawco, owners preferred to keep the show exclusive to Canadian audiences for the first several years to help keep the show "real and truthful to the place"; it's set in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador. Syndication will keep the show, which ended after season 6, playing in U.S. households for years. See more »
Being from Newfoundland originally, I am a bit biased. It is definitely a east coast taste of Starsky and Hutch or Magnum PI. I do love seeing backdrops of home and hearing words from my youth :) The actors do a great job portraying our culture and way of life. It is also great seeing other Newfoundland celebrities and friends of our wonderful province (Russell Crowe for example) on the episodes as guest stars. They all did a wonderful job on their respective episodes!
To a previous reviewer, Chris H.: When you leave Newfoundland, you are never an "ex-Newfoundlander", we always consider Newfoundland and Labrador our home, no matter where we live. It holds a special place in our hearts and anyone who visits there or meets someone from "The Rock".
Great job CBC, you have definitely been putting out some great shows lately!
