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

Quotes

Karen Pelly: Listen, Oscar, I would prefer it if you didn't tell anyone I was cooking for you.
Oscar Leroy: Done.
Karen Pelly: Don't you wanna know why?
Oscar Leroy: Does it seem like I wanna know why?
Karen Pelly: I read an article that said career women shouldn't exhibit traditional woman skills, like cooking. Because it can undermine our status and we could lose the respect of our male colleagues.
Oscar Leroy: [chuckles] Whatever you say, Toots.

A funny version of the truth
6 July 2004 | by (Regina, SK) – See all my reviews

Well, this show has been renewed for a second season, and I couldn't be happier. We, from Saskatchewan, are proud of this show because it shows the way we live (exaggerated of course), and locals have been used for extras (a guy from the town next to my home town, but went to high school in my home town was an extra and had one line). The show doesn't make people from small towns look like retards or inbred freaks, but focuses on how we know everybody, and as a result, trust everybody.

I love the interactions that the town of Dog River had with Lacey, in the beginning. It was so true the way they were suspicious of the girl moving from the big city to this tiny town. But once she showed she was planning to stay in the town, they warmed up to her. This happened to my family when they moved to my home town. The town warmed up to my parents when they had me and my brother because they knew we were staying and not going to leave.

I also love Oscar, the old and senile man who is so easily controlled by his stable wife. Honestly, I know a few people like Oscar. I loved the episode where he kept winning the stuffed animals from the claw machine.
