Canadian series, filmed entirely in Saskatchewan. Corner Gas was created by Canadian comedian Brent Butt, who imagined what his life might be like had he remained in a small Saskatchewan town rather than pursuing stand-up comedy. During it's run Corner Gas received six Gemini Awards, and was nominated almost 70 times for various other awards. There are six seasons (107 episodes, also currently available on Prime) in the can, a 2014 movie, and a 2016 animated series. Not one weak episode to be found. Genuinely funny, a bit dry, and quite a bit of this is actually high-brow. Well worth your time! Guaranteed.

We just loved the humor in this series. Season one is our all time favorite. Season 2-4 are great, but ever so slightly different. Worth the credits for some easy watching and fun entertainment.

Marvelously funny
Daniel Reade | Seattle, WA | 04/11/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Corner Gas is set in Dog River, Saskatchewan, a little town in the middle of nowhere. Centered around the local gas station owned by writer and star Brent Butt (no, that's not a typo), the show is about Brent, his friends and family, and the people of Dog River.

And it is one of the funniest shows I've ever seen.

Corner Gas was introduced to me as a Canadian Seinfeld. This has elements of truth. The humor is somewhat similar in style and the story in each episode is as much a frame upon which to hang jokes as an actual mechanim for plot. These similarities aside, Corner Gas is unique, mixing original jokes and off-the-wall characters. If you're not laughing after Brett and his dad start arguing over the introduction of video rentals to the gas station in the very first episode, hit yourself on the head and watch the episode again. You're missing something. As the season continues, it is a pleasure to watch the characters grow. By the end of season I, you'll be rooting for all of them...and laughing at them as well, which is all to the good.

I have absolutely no reservations about awarding this DVD set five stars. Buy it. Buy it. Buy it."
Unique Canadian Humour

"While the setting is purely small-town Canada, the humour is universal. Episode 6 has to be my favourite, with all the double-meanings and play on words. Brent Butt is hilarious in a subdued way and the rest of the cast are brilliant. They really work well together. It's nice to watch something genuinely funny that doesn't insult one's intelligence and doesn't have to resort to toilet-humour to get laughs. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a good laugh and wanting some insight into refreshing Canadian humour that all can relate to."

"Corner Gas is a beautiful little gem of slightly off-kilter humour from (heh) Saskatchewan. There's something oddly funny about Saskatchewan. (Just saying it is funny...Saskatchewan.) The characters are people you know, people you've met at the diner or seen at the bar, only funnier. (My girlfriend swears that Oscar is her father, and I think she's right.) Good writing and great casting make it the best Canadian show since the unfortunately short-lived Made in Canada. Speaking of which, who can resist a Canadian show that doesn't involve Rick Mercer in any way?"
