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

Trivia

Wanda's (Nancy Robertson) son Tanner is mentioned but never seen. In fact in episode 1.4 "Oh Baby!" that featured Brent attempting to babysit the boy, things were often shown from Tanner's point of view, and he never spoke. See more »

Quotes

Karen Pelly: How stupid are you? You can't just fire your gun off willy-nilly!
Davis: It wasn't willy-nilly, it was at crows.

Crazy Credits

During the closing credits of "Rock On", instead of the usual closing theme song, Thunderface (Brent, Hank, Wanda, and Karen) performs Fast Exit's song "Capital Cash", as they did in the episode. See more »

Good show, eh?
14 June 2004 | by (Alberta, Canada) – See all my reviews

I admit that I didn't set out to watch this show, it was on before "American Idol" one night. But I was converted into a fan with one episode.

I really like the quirky humour and the way that the characters interact with each other. And how the characters stay true to themselves.

I'd never heard of Brent Butt, or anyone else in this show, before. Doesn't matter. They make a good ensemble.

So Canadians are capable of producing a good TV show themselves! You don't have to be from the prairies to understand the flavour of small town Canada.
