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 »
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.
