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.

Pigeon's Cafe (a restaurant in town of Rouleau, Saskatchewan where the series is filmed) is shown in the background of several episodes as being near the police station. Yet no one in the series mentions it, despite the town being exceptionally small. See more
