Show Summary

Corner Gas is about the lives of the people who live in Dog River and hang around the only gas station and restaurant in town. The cast of characters includes Brent LeRoy, the owner of Corner Gas and chronic comicbook reader; his assistant at the station, Wanda Dollard, who is just a little too well educated to be stuck where she is, but doesn't seem to mind it; Hank Yarbo, Brent's friend from his school days whose hobbies consist of hanging out at the gas station and drinking coffee; Lacey Burrows, a big-city girl who's a little out of place in small town Saskatchewan; Brent's parents, Oscar and Emma LeRoy, who bicker all the time, but when push comes to shove, they're there for each other; and the town constabulary, Davis Quinton and Karen Pelly, who seem to get into more trouble than they stop. The show has been a favourite in Canada since its inception, and has constantly hit high marks in the ratings, making it the number one comedy in Canada. It has garnered numerous award nods and wins, including the Canadian Comedy Awards, the Directors' Guild of Canada, Writers' Guild of Canada, Gemini Awards and an Emmy nomination. Opening Theme Not A Lot Goin' On, by Craig Northey and Jesse Valenzuela You can tell me that your dog ran away And then tell me that it took three days I've heard every joke, I've heard every one you're sayin' You think there's not a lot goin' on Well, look closer, baby, you're so wrong And that's why you can stay so long Where there's not a lot goin' on. Closing Theme My Happy Place, by Craig Northey I don't know the same things you don't know I don't know, I just don't know It's a great big place Full of nothin' but space And it's my happy place I don't know Yes you do You just won't admit it I don't know the same things you don't know I don't know I just don't know.

  • it's corner gas....

    8.0
    Love this show. It has good quirky writing and the casting is pretty good except for Brent. I know he created the show but his character is horrible. His character is almost like a referee, he just stands there while all the action happens around him and then adds the moral authority. Once again good show, but Brent's character adds nothing to it.
  • To be Canadian, or not to be Canadian. . . who wouldn't want to be Canadian? World's best hockey players, best scenery, best humour.

    I'm from Saskatoon now living in Coquitlam, BC for the past few decades and go home whenever I can. I love Corner Gas, not only as it is situated in my home province of Saskatchewan, but it is one of the funniest shows going!

    I am in hopes that Corner Gas will be re-visited as a new series (same cast) and I believe that Corner Gas warrants a full length motion picture: all original cast in it's original location.

    I am positive Brent Butt could pull this off.

    Canadian humour is the best humour and Mr. Butt is the epitome of such.

    Thank you Mr. Butt.moreless
  • Is It Too Much To Ask For Corner Gas--The Animated Series?

    If the stars of Corner Gas are unwilling to do even a reunion show, can they, at the very least, lend their voices to a new animated cartoon that will be as funny and as witty as the original series was? Americans will need something to laugh at once The Simpsons eventually terminates production.
  • Not only the best CTV comedy show...

    but the best canadian sitcom by far. I always end up laughing whenever I watch it. the characters are funny and interesting, the jokes are well timed and actually humorous, and the writing is gold. I have all 6 seasons on DVD, and totally reconmend it.
  • The worst show ever!!!!!!!

    This show was a complete waste of my life. I will never watch it again. I can barely stand the commercials for it when they come up i swtch channels. I dont know how anybody can watch this show. It is so lame. I think that the only people that watch this show are people who have nothing else to do or like to laugh at stupid shows wondering how people actualy watch this and why it's still on tv. The people who gave this show 10.0 are crazy they must live in a place where there is only one channel and all the other shows on that channel are crappy and thats the only amusement they can get.moreless
