    ...Sam, do you really believe the fake and enhanced colours are real and depict sin johns?? drive downtown 'bye and see for yourself...massive potholes; boarded up buildings; windows broken; coffee cups blowing around everywhere; beer cases in the middle of the road; mattresses and sofas in the ditches; large white appliances on doorsteps; deep freezers for garbage boxes; roaming dogs; piles of puke, vomit and doggie doo; everywhere! Look down my son, not around! watch out, oh crap, you stepped in it. Tank jasus its over!

    I don't know where 20% was looking but the city of St. John's is a very colorful place as is the dialect . I for one think that the actors on this show do a fine job and repersent Newfoundland very well , I don't think the show is meant be taken to seriously , so lighten up people

    living in Cambridge, On I look forward to the Republic of Doyle every Wednesday Night. Sometimes I get homesick watching the sights of St. Johns. The characters are great, funny and very much Newfoundlanders. It takes me back to when I worked at The Fishing Admiral years ago. I wish this show very well in the future I know I will always be a fan. Fans are from all over Canada not just Newfondland. Keep up the good work guys, I would hate to see it cancelled

    I used to love this show when it followed the storyline of Rose and her ex husband. Now, with this brother added, it is desperate! The poor guy can't act! Also, they need to do something with the daugther and Des character. They are entertaining. The accent on the Constable, now Sargeant, is hard on the nerves. No one in St. John's talks like that. Must be a Mt. Pearl twang! I hope the storyline gets better or the second season will be the last.

    I tried watching this series, but I can't understand the dialect; is it townie wannabe bayman? or is it bayman wannabe townie? or, mainlander wanna be newfie? and where did they get the colours?? when I look around the city of legends, I see mostly grey, mixed in with doggie-doo brown.

    I see the Lobsters are out in full force again, pulling successful Newfoundlanders back to the bottom of the tank.

    How about each of you go out and make your own television show. None of ya have enough talent to get a camera in focus i expect. Get a life.

    @ Nasty Nate from St. John's; think the dialect was exaggerated ? Listen to the open line shows now and then , at times they're a laugh and a half, as sure as fish is a dollar farty a pound , not a dollar hatey, and dere's no seals hawn da hice fer to go get. On toppa dat , dere's no hee high .

    @ Member of the 20% from NL.: your comments are spot on. In one particular scene on ROD, Jake Doyle and his father knocked on the door of a house in a very upscale area in Mt. Pearl and the door was opened by a sophisticated looking man who asked , in a mainland brogue, ' so what are ye doin' here bys' ? It was painful to watch. They've got to stop that foolishness or they're going to lose viewers.
