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

The "surveillance bush" that Karen (Tara Spencer-Nairn) hides behind in her car in episode 1.1 "Ruby Reborn" doesn't actually exist, it was simply held up there by a crew member who was lying flat in the ditch. The bush appears in only one other episode - the finale, 6.19 "You've Been Great, Goodnight", and it once again had to be re-planted (footage of this event was featured in the "It's Been a Gas" special aired by CTV before the episode).

This is the cream of the crop on TV for comedies
12 April 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Of all the shows still currently airing new episodes, this is the funniest show on TV. My Name is Earl comes close, but doesn't quite match it. Simpsons isn't as funny as it once was, so that too is out of the running.

It began airing 2 years ago (and both those seasons are available to own on DVD) and the third season has just wrapped.

It revolves around a core of 8(Brent, Wanda, Hank, Lacey, Officers Davis and Karen, and Brents parents Oscar and Emma) characters, tied together my the small town of dog River, Sask. Only rarely do any characters leave the confines on the local coffee shop (The Ruby), gas station (Corner Gas), local bar, the insurance and liquor store, or the Leroy home. The comedy is all situational and there is no laugh track or audience participation. If a comparison to another show is needed, think Seinfeld, but on the prairies.

After three years there have only been 2 or 3 bad episodes, but 10-15 fantastic ones--a great ratio. Rarely do the episodes have less then 4 or 5 wonderful belly laughs or classic lines.

I used to like the character of Oscar the best, but now I like Hank a little more. If you want to see Officer Karen naked in another movie...track down one of the Wishmaster movies (part 4 I think).

This is a good show.
