It was on the air for 6 seasons from 2004 thru 2009, they then did a Kickstarter-backed movie in 2014
A Canadian sitcom (apparently this was a first for that?) which takes place in the imaginary prairie town of Dog River, Saskatchewan.
The whole show is just flat out funny and tastefully done where anyone in the family can watch.
In reality, Dog River is a real town called Rouleau Saskatchewan, which is a decent drive south-Southwest from Regina where all the outdoor scenes were filmed.
They used real homes and stores/buildings save some of the indoor filmed stuff that took place in a Vancouver studio.
Canadian Comic Brent Butt stitched together this awesome little home-town comedy about his life of running Corner Gas, and all the wacky Canadian shenanigans that occur in Dog River with his friends and family.
His real-life wife plays his gas station assistant (they're not married on the show) who is way too brilliant to be working there, which makes for an interesting dynamic.
I liked it so much I wish I could live there.
I recently blew through all 6 seasons and the movie that was made 5 years after the show finished, and I'm still craving for more.
Sadly the actual gas station they built to film this was demolished a few years ago, ( I spent WAAAY too much time looking up everything on Google Maps/street view) but the town still has tours and a souvenir shop.
They recently started an Animated show, "Corner Gas Animated" that is on the air up there, hopefully it will make it down here soon too.
Thanks for the recommendation, Andy. I'll put that on my Watchlist. If you like wacky Canadian series, here's another one set in St. John's, Newfoundland: www.justwatch.com/us/tv-show/republic-of-doyle Father and son set up a private detective business, but sometimes the line between legal and illegal gets kind of blurry. We were only able to watch the first few seasons on PBS years ago. We were on satellite service then. I thought we couldn't stream in our locality. Our neighbors on both sides of us cannot do so due to the very hilly terrain and a mountain on one side. We were using Netflix DVD. After waiting 9 months to get a series we wanted, only to go back on the waiting list after the first season, I got fed up and went on chat with our ISP to see if there was any way we could get streaming. Sure enough, because we are higher up on the side of a hill, we can get streaming. Our ISP bill went from $39 to $50, and we are getting flawless streaming (HD). I bought a Roku stick, and after a couple of weeks of streaming, we cut the cord and are now saving hundreds of dollars a year! I'm going to get back to this series soon and pick up where we left off. I hope it has stayed good.
