Corner Gas Season 1 on DVD
“Corner Gas Season 1″ Plot:
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. It isn’t Pleasantville and it’s definitely not Mayberry. It’s a little town with a definite edge where not much happens and people like it that way. But invariably, when things do change, just a little, all hell breaks loose.
Corner Gas is a comedy series that answers many of the questions we have about small town life. What would life be like if you lived in the middle of nowhere? What would you do with your days? How long would it take before you go nuts?
And most importantly it’s a series that makes you laugh, and laugh, and laugh.
