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 »

Quotes

Theme Song: ["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.

fine, goodnatured comedy from Canada
18 August 2017 | by myriamlenysSee all my reviews

Now here's a fine comedy series. As the years went on, it lost a bit of steam - there was an element of repetition and thus of boredom creeping in - but it's easy to see how and why it became so popular.

I'm especially fond of the various cameos sprinkled through the series, particularly when these cameos come with a hefty dose of surrealism. (An example : an older lady, looking both frail and distinguished, is asked whether she is a Mrs. Clarkson, former governor general. When the lady replies that yes, this is indeed her name, she is immediately invited to help tear down a barn. Seconds later she is shown mauling a barn, with all the fervent pleasure of a missionary tearing down pagan idols - because hey, that's what you do when you're a Canadian.)

Firmly recommended : the episode where Dog River engages in a twinning project with a Japanese counterpart. It all ends in tears, with innocent civilians fleeing in panic before the inexplicable cruelty of the Dogriverians. (Or Dogruperians. Or something.)
