RoD star Allan Hawco is friends with actor Russell Crowe, who has guest starred on "Republic of Doyle." Among various connections, Russell has played music with Alan Doyle, lead singer for the Canadian folk rock band Great Big Sea (the group performs the show's theme sign, "Oh Yeah").

We absolutely love it! We've only just seen the first episode, and can't wait to see the next.
Looks like very well done production, set in picturesque Newfoundland, with a humorous and engaging story. With appearances from some recognizable cast, Newfie wit, and good old fashioned chase scenes, it looks like it could be on the way to be the next Canadian produced hit.
We loved that the area the scenes were shot were clearly recognizable, to anyone who has visited the capital city. This, combined with the characters and situations that viewers will likely find some familiarity with (if not them, someone they know) makes this a very watchable start to to a new series.
