A lovable, goofy bartender decides to run for Mayor of his city.
9 September 2012 | by bigkdrSee all my reviews

This is an hilarious show. Fred Ewanuick is a very funny, likable person and that comes through in his character Dan, who basically starts running for Mayor in his community of Wessex as a joke with nobody expecting him to win, including himself. All of the character's are very likable, even the one's who aren't supposed to be likable are likable. Juggling his job as a bartender,his best friend (also a bartender) as his campaign manager, a shoe string campaign budget, his ex-girlfriend, his new girlfriend, his ex-girlfriends' new boyfriend, his new girlfriend's Aunt who does not like him and becomes his competitor for the job as Mayor and his own run for Mayor every episode has very funny moments and some twists and turns that you just do not see coming. Like a bus out of nowhere.Dan For Mayor kept me laughing and looking forward to each episode. Dan Ewanuick played Hank Yarbo on the CTV show Corner Gas before this and was very enjoyable as the second banana to Brett Butt's main character. In Dan For Mayor Fred holds his own as the top banana. He is very funny, witty and just great to watch. This is a very good show.By the way I have seen a few reviews that state this is just "Corner Gas" redux. I don't see it that way. You have a completelty different setting, the characters are not even remotely alike and the onlt thing that comes close are some of the 'flash" scenes but lots of shows do that. Some people are saying that Dan and Hank are the same but look at the differences; Hank had no job and did not seem to care to get one, Dan had a job as a bartender and then runs for Mayor. Hank had no girlfriend, Dan has an ex and a current in the first season then his ex comes back to him and they live together. Yes they are both laid back but Hank was more so than Dan. Also, on DFM, there is no Oscar, Emma, Lacey, Wanda, Karen, Davis, etc. The characters on DFM are completely different people. in conclusion this is not your "Corner Gas!"
