Private Eye Jake Doyle returns for a raucous second season of CBC’s Republic of Doyle, solving cases, dodging punches and chasing criminals through the hilly, colourful streets of seaside St. John’s. Allan Hawco stars as the charming and irreverent detective who struggles daily to navigate the complications of running the family P.I. business while keeping his very tangly private life in check.
Also returning to the Republic are the people that Jake can’t live with -- or without: colleague (and defacto stepmother) Rose Miller (Lynda Boyd); vandal turned P.I. apprentice Des Courtney (Mark O’Brien); and enterprising niece Tinny (Marthe Bernard).
But the return of one Doyle remains uncertain. After a couple of massive back-to-back heart attacks and emergency surgery, what has become of Malachy Doyle (Sean McGinley)... and how are the Doyles moving forward?
This sophomore season features some fresh additions to the Doyle universe, folks who will make an impact Jake’s world: Crown Attorney Allison Jenkins (Michelle Nolden), St. John’s Mayor Bill Clarke (Rick Roberts) and local loan heavy Big Fat Ronnie (Matt Gordon). Republic of Doyle Season 2 also heralds the return of unapologetic Martin Poole (Nick Campbell), bombastic novelist Garrison Steele (Victor Garber) and the Prodigal Doyle, Christian (Jonathan Goad).

Season two picks up where the first one left off. It's still your standard issue detective show, a hip update of the type of thing you'd see back in the '70's and '80's. Each week features a new case, which is generally fine, but the best thing about this show to me is the relationships between the characters.
The show is still filmed in Newfoundland, but has a more polished vibe to it. Everything seems brighter, and it lacks the raw, hazy feel of season one which was a major part of the appeal. Hawco seems leaner, as if once he realized he had a hit on his hands that it was time to hire a personal trainer and a nutritionist, and wastes no time showing off his new bod in episode one. It appears as if they began filming in HD in season two, and the picture suffers a tad on a non-hd set.
That being said, the show itself is great. If you enjoyed season one, season two starts off with a bang and doesn't let up through the awesome finale. Enjoy!
The stories are even more fun as we now know the characters. The character arcs are great, and the stories remain some of the most original on television today. Here's hoping for a season three!
Worth watching for the glimpses of the ever quaint & beautiful Newfoundland

This season of the show was pretty good. Though I did find Jake (Hawco) to be an Arse with the cop and the lawyer. Playing with there feelings ect. That not right in my opinion. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Kory Scott
