This is the last season currently available on DVD for this hilarious (yet somewhat wholesome) show. The DVD extras are great, the show itself is incomparable. I am so happy with this purchase, and I am waiting eargerly for the next season to come out on DVD!

We live in Utah but are huge fans of this Canadian sitcom. We love the characters more and more every season. It always makes us chuckle and we love how clean it is.

This is a Canadian T.V. sitcom created by Canadian comedian Brent Butt. (Yes! That’s his real name.) The series ran for six seasons from Jan 22, 2004 to April 13, 2009 for a total of 107 episodes.

Deriving its name from the roadside gas station in the fictional, small (very small!) town of Dog River, Saskatchewan, Canada, “Corner Gas” is the only gas station within 37 miles (60 km) in any direction.

The characters of this small town are quirky:

Brent Leroy (Brent Butt) is the proprietor of the gas station. His parents, Oscar (Eric Peterson) whose favorite word is “jackass” and Emma (Janet Wright) are life-time residents of Dog River.

Wanda Dollard (Nancy Robertson) works at the station’s convenience store as a retail assistant.

An adjoining cafe, “The Ruby”, is owned by Lacey Burrows (Gabrielle Miller), who inherited it from her Aunt Ruby.

Dog River’s Police Department (the “DRPD”) consists entirely of veteran Davis Quinton (Lorne Cardinal) and rookie Karen Pelly (Tara Spencer-Nairn).

Brent’s best friend, the perpetually unemployed Hank Yarbo (Fred Ewanuick), spends his time hanging out with Dog River residents or drinking coffee at the Ruby.

A number of notable Canadian celebrities and politicians appear as guest stars or have cameo roles in many episodes.

Most of the episodes are stand-alone and can be viewed in any order.

This very funny show, which was filmed entirely in Saskatchewan, became an instant hit, averaging a million viewers per episode. In Saskatchewan, April 13 is known as “Corner Gas Day.” This show is presently televised in 26 countries.

I found that season five of Corner Gas retained its quirky characters and that all episodes retained the humour I’ve come to expect. In fact, most episodes are hilarious. Kiefer Sutherland has a cameo in one of the episodes.

Finally, there are three extras: bloopers, a theme song music video, and “character mash-ups” (short “best of” montages of each character).

In conclusion, the fifth season of the hit comedy “Corner Gas” presents episodes in the life of a small town where there’s “not a lot goin’ on.”

Warning!! Once you become addicted to this series, you officially become a “Butt head.”

(2007 to 2008; 19 episodes on 3 discs; 22 min per episode; total time: 420 min or 7 hrs; wide screen)

What can I say. I am enjoying the series soooooo much. I already loved the characters but now I've gotten to know them much better. My favorites are Oscar and Emma and Brent and Wanda. Best Christmas present ever.
