From Bill Brioux at TV Feeds My Family:
- Republic of Doyle: Rockford Meets The Rock
“Republic of Doyle also arrives just as crime dramas take a turn away from dark corners and toward the light.

It is Rockford Files meets The Rock, Magnum NFLD. It is a guy’s show, a welcome shot of testosterone on a CBC schedule that was too girly after a string of Sophies, Wild Roses and Ericas.” Read more.
