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

Goofs

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 »

What happens when nothing happens? A lot, eh!
2 November 2017 | by khunkrumarkSee all my reviews

While the Americans are churning out thousands of TV programs all claiming to be 'comedy', the Canadians are quietly creating actual comedy which bears the scrutiny of repeated viewing... much like the British used to do back when they had a sense of humor.

It's not perfect, though... but even when the stories and the writing don't always hit the mark, the characters themselves more than pick up the slack to keep it watchable.

The strong cast has created a great family of characters much like 'News Radio' did before them. In fact 'News Radio' and 'Third Rock From The Sun' and to some extent 'Cheers' are similar entities... Normal people doing silly things in ordinary places. It's a good sign when the entire run has been unspoiled by an annoying laughter track!

Curiously, it seems to be set in some fictional climate that most Canadians will be unfamiliar with! It's almost as if it's Arizona every day in Dog River!

There's a very laid back feel to this comedy and the gags are usually understated. It's witty and has no agenda. Despite the characters being flawed and just a bit too naughty, the whole experience is very good natured and when people get out of line there's always payback!

None of the actors are familiar to me, even Brent Butt, but they all score highly on screen and there doesn't seem to be any weak links. In the IMDb reviews, there are some references to the dreadful Seinfeld which is strictly aimed at a USA audience. This is much funnier and way cleverer.

If you like the unforced humor of this Canadian classic then also check out some British offerings such as 'The Detectorists' and 'Early Doors'.
