Trivia

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 »

Modern day Starsky and Hutch, set in St. Johns
6 January 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

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.

Well Done!
