dull-witted PI Jake Doyle and goofball sidekick get it done... somehow
This is a PI show about a father/son private investigator team and their young assistant. It's set in Nova Scotia, which is beautiful to behold. Most of the characters are good, although the assistant and the star, Jake (played by Allan Hawco), are a bit much. Sometimes I have to quit an episode part way through because the stupidity of one of them make it too implausible to watch. But as a Netflix user, there aren't many TV shows I like, so I keep coming back to it when I'm too tired to do anything but watch TV. The series went 6 seasons, so I guess it was popular. Allan Hawco is a pretty good actor, and I'm glad to see he's gone on to more serious roles. I do enjoy the Nova Scotia scenery.
