An absolute joy to watch!
1 August 2013 | by (Ottawa, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

I've never visited the province of Newfoundland and Labrador but I consider the entire population to be my friends. I've always been intrigued by the populace due to their unique accent/dialect, their music, their food such as fish and brewis and their booze. I've watched a lot of NTV and have learned a great deal about their province. These are hardy, tough and determined people living on a rock where Canada's worst weather occurs. They love to fight. The idea of an action comedy-drama show set there is a brilliant idea.

Allan Hawco, the star, co-creator, executive producer, head writer and showrunner of Republic Of Doyle, plays Jake Doyle, a PI in St John's, NFLD&L. Doyle is a fearless man who isn't afraid to die in the line of fire for justice. He is aided by his father Malachy (Sean McGinley) and his step-mother Rose (Lynda Boyd), who usually go online to dig up dirt on his targets. He also has Des Courtney (Mark O'Brien), a stammering youth who helps/hinders him. There's also Katrina Doyle (Marthe Bernard), a cute-as-a-button, Janet Wood-type who works for the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary.

Unlike Magnum P.I., RoD is more like typical T.V. as an entire season of story lines occur throughout its run. It's a deft mix of drama, comedy and action in the streets of the capital city. It's unique to see crime fighting take place in a smaller city like St. John's than in, say, New York, L.A. or Toronto.

If you're obsessed with Newfoundland like I am, this show is a must- watch. Even if you're not, it's much better than 85% of T.V. today and it's just only hitting its prime. It's a fun romp every time I watch. I also have to commend Mr. Hawco on his taste in women as he hires knockouts on his show. Only in RoD could some beautiful lady in a mini-dress be the mastermind behind a mad bomber.

Newfoundland and Labrador is taking over, people.
