Review: Republic of Doyle pilot

From Myles McNutt of Cultural Learnings:

  • Series Premiere: Republic of Doyle – “Pilot”
    “Doyle is not a terrible show, but what it struggles with is feeling like it actually knows what it is: numerous shots of the St. John’s harbour and the colourful houses of the downtown aren’t enough to give the show any sort of distinctive Newfoundland identity, and the show doesn’t bother to get onto its feet before throwing us into a bland procedural structure in order for us to come to care about these characters in any capacity.” Read more.

  1. loved the show, can’t wait for the next episode- it was uniquely newfoundland and typically great canadian drama/ comedy -awesome to see the talent we have here on the Rock is not just limited to music and theatre – it has my attention!

  2. Hi I want to thank Mr Allan Hawco for beeing so kind at the Awards. The photo he gave me signed To Mayor Betty will always be Treasured as will the one he had taken with me. He is such a great young man and I wish him all the best.

    I hope one day soon he can come visit our beautiful Town.I would love to have both him and his team they are all wounderful people. Also I am putting the photo taken with him on my face book. So check it out ok. I also want to say Allan your show is just Great take care and may God Bless you and those that work with you.
