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.
Forty kilometres from nowhere and way beyond normal.

There aren't enough people working there to run Corner Gas and The Ruby Cafe.

["Not A Lot Goin' On"
You can tell me that your dog ran away / Then tell me that it took three days / I've heard every joke / I've heard every one you'd say / You think there's not a lot goin' on / Look closer baby, you're so wrong / And that's why you can stay so long / Where there's not a lot goin' on.
The third season episode "The Littlest Yarbo" replaces the show's usual closing credits theme with "Maybe Tomorrow", the theme song from the 1980s TV series "The Littlest Hobo." See more
