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.
Forty kilometres from nowhere and way beyond normal.

Did You Know?
In real life, Brent Butt (Brent Leroy) and Nancy Robertson (Wanda Dollard) are married. See more
Lacey is supposed to be the owner and primary food server in a restaurant and be very experienced at her job.
However she wears open-toed, shoes, flip flops, sandals and even high heels on occasion while she is working. The first three would violate food safety laws, as well as risk injury to her feet from dropped dishes and spilled beverages. The fourth would become painful after an hour or so of standing on her feet. See more
["Not A Lot Goin' On"
You can tell me that your dog ran away / Then tell me that it took three days / I've heard every joke / I've heard every one you'd say / You think there's not a lot goin' on / Look closer baby, you're so wrong / And that's why you can stay so long / Where there's not a lot goin' on.
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
