Storyline

Popular comedian Brent Butt returns to small town Saskatchewan to portray the life he would have led had he gotten a real job - pumping gas at Corner Gas. Each episode of Corner Gas delivers a half-hour of comedic voyeurism in a place where everyone knows everyone else's business. The series is set in the fictional town of Dog River Saskatchewan, and focuses on the life (or lack thereof) of gas station owner Brent LeRoy, coffee shop proprietor Lacey Burrows and the folks who populate the area. Dog River is a nice town, but far from the quaint and idyllic little burgs we're used to seeing on TV. Written by Anonymous

I Like It.....and I'm not Canadian!!!!!!
28 December 2005 | by (Buckingham, UK) – See all my reviews

I happened to catch an episode of this series when I was on holiday in Canada and became an immediate fan. The series is character driven, and similar in spirit to Seinfeld as a whole lot of nothing tends to happen in the small town of Dog River. There is quite a warmth about the characters and their interplay and the humour is generally good natured, focusing on human weaknesses and relationships. I am surprised it has never been shown on TV in the UK as I think a lot of people would appreciate the humour - there seems to be a lot of similarities between Canadian and Brit approach to comedy. If you've never seen it then it's well worth checking out
