  1. I have some great ideas for the show. Benny is from St Anthony and Benny’s Dad wants to got back there for a visit. Benny joins him” punk like he is”. Benny meets up with his old Dart league buddies. Being from Nfld everyone is in a dart league. instead of Texas Holdem every one in the outports wants to go to Ireland to play in the big World Dart Tournament. They talk Benny into trying out and he does and wins his way to the World Tournament. Benny being of East Indian decent he make some stupid remark at the airport and gets arrested. They think he is a terrorist Doyle has to go and try to get him out. In The story should have some old guy in his 90s, with lots of stories of fishing and hard times. Poeple end going to him for advice the old guy is full of wisdom. Gorden Pincent would be a great candidate for the role. I am not a writer but have lots of great ideas.
