I want to say how much I enjoyed your show, it was a Monday night ritual, & everyone knew don't call during that half hour. I especially enjoyed that last show because it hit close to home.  

There are 5 couples who hang out together & we call ourselves the Bear Stump Lodge after a fishing trip where my husband Tim thought he saw a bear & upon closer inspection by his buddies, it turned out to be a stump. He has not lived it down & gets teased constantly about it.  

When at the end of the show you referred to thinking a Moose was seen & it turned out to be a stump.  My husband & I looked at each other & said "Oh My God" that was too ironic, its like you knew our story, but how could you have.
Once again thanks for the laughs especially Oscar  who always said  "JACKASS", will miss you all dearly you were like part of the family

Thanks for finally making the best and funniest show in Canadian history. It was such a pleasure to watch and always reminded me of being home in Saskatchewan again. My husband and I laughed so much and so hard until we were in tears and then looked at each other and said, "its just like home when we were kids!!" We will miss you all so, so very much. Thanks for the knee slapping laughs!! I don't think Canadians were better depicted than in this show. It just was really clean and true Canadian humor as it should be. All the best, break a leg and prosper in your next acting endeavors, affectionately, mbprairie

Your show was great. I loved watching all the episodes over and over. A great break from the shows we have here in the States. I will truly miss your humor and hope that Canada shows us Americans what real television is all about. Thank you!

Hey everyone: I wanted to let you know how much I will miss Corner Gas and everyone involved with the show. How big it got was never a surprise to me. I became addicted after the first show. I enjoyed logging on and playing the games, especially the quiz and prarie scramble. I would get on right after each show and get all the answers. I used my Dog River dollars to put in for a number of items in the auction. I was greatly thrilled when I won the green baseball cap from the episode about the Dog River Dollars. I happen to collect caps and it was a great addition to my set. I also got a post card along with the cap. You have given me and my family a lot of joy and laughter. I understand why Brett decided to end things but I just don't know what I will do with my Monday evenings without it. I watch the show every chance I get on any channel it appears. Good luck to all of you. I will watch for what everyone in the cast gets up to. It was a wonderful run and you deserve all the kudos you have received. So, good bye and good luck.

Gidday Guys!
Congratulations on a great run, this show is fantastic! Legendary stuff!
I'm from New Zealand and we don't get the show out here but I started watching it online and laughed my socks off. The first episode got me hooked and now I'm addicted.
It's a shame you guys had to finish but you had a great opportunity and you took it, and now it is time to go on to something bigger and better. 
Once again, congratulations and good luck to all the cast and crew in their future endeavours.
From Rebecca Hodgson :-]
P.S My favourite character is Davis - All Right!

We first started watching your show in Wellington New Zealand last year. My son had dvds & we were hooked. We returned to Canada and have been faithful viewers since. We have been watching the re runs to catch up & are very disappointed that the best Canadian sitcom will no longer be produced. We understand leaving while you are at the top & will continue to watch the re runs. Good luck everyone you are a special group of people may success foloow you were ever that may lead.

Goodbye everyone.  I'm sorry to see the show come to an end.  Anytime I need a laugh I pop in a Corner Gas dvd.  My favorite two characters are Brent and Karen.  I can't get enough.

Hi Cast & Crew,
I am in Australia and stumbled across your fantastic show a short time ago and no doubt we are a bit behind in the series.
It is on only three days a week here but I absolutely love the show and my wife says that it is about nothing, yet if she can she sits and watches it with but does not express an interest in it, but I think deep down she likes it too.
This is such a wonderful piece of television and I was saddened to read that you have wrapped up your final season,but all good things must come to an end!
Whoever the "JACKASS" is that said that obviously never saw the what goes on in Dog River.
Back to the wife she is puzzled and has asked me why do I like the show as it is about nothing?
One reason would have to be that this is the first show that I have seen where there is not one character that I dislike, which is a big compliment for Brent the creator of Corner Gas, and also the actors who appear in it and make the Dog River residents so watchable.
I wish you all the best for the future and it would be great to see Corner Gas in oh maybe ten years.
Thanks for the laughs.
Glenn.

I am so bummed to find out that Corner Gas is no more.  I live in SW Missouri and we just recently got the show.  Then again, we just got the Ed Sullivan Show with the Beatles last month.

Fair well and thank you.  It was a great show and cast.

Thank you....
I found this little piece of Canada by accident (WGN sucessfully hid this gem for years). I am currently living in the US and wasn't able to watch the show until about a year ago.

And as all good things must come to pass I am grateful for the little I was able to watch and pass on "the habit" to other residents of the area.

You guys all "did good".

What a refreshing moment; the decision to end Corner Gas at the top of its game was bold, necessary, and infectiously bittersweet.

All the best to the cast and crew. Would that Canadian television could be as intelligently witty and insightful as this all the time. There _is_ such a thing as Canadian humor, and you folks nailed it to the ground with eight-inch railroad spikes. And not since "The Beachcombers" have we seen such a wildy diversified country so coalesced around one, unique demographic in our midst.

Now: do us a favor and get back in the game. Not as Dog River denizens (please, _please_ don't make a movie, or a Christmas special) but as talented representatives of the quirky and honest place we call Canada. Next project, please: we're waiting.

Toque's off to all of you, and the guys down at the Chili Cheese Dog Local 152 Union say "mmmphh!"

Cheers -

k

I cannot believe I no sooner found you...you are leaving me. However I will continue to purchase every season as quickly as I can. Been watching the first three seasons over & over & over. Why in the world WGN puts your great show on at 1:30 in the morning is beyond me. You are all wonderful!
Anyhoo, good luck, God bless and thanks.

ps I was really hoping when you did end the show, we would find that Hank was really heir to a fortune. I figure he's the kind of guy who would just never acknowledge his fortune and live the simple life.

A huge thank you to everyone involved with Corner Gas for producing a such a fun-filled program.  I found you on WGN last Summer and was immediately hooked.  Now, five DVDs later you are providing laughs nearly every evening.  Every character is so likable in their own way, it's impossible to have a favorite.  Corner Gas is a show I will never tire of watching regardless of how many times I see an episode.  Good luck to everyone as you move on to other projects.

Goodbye to all of the gang at Corner Gas. For this frustrateed  Brit it's been a fun packed time watching guys on dvd.Sadly U.K. t.v. networks have decided not broadcast the show over here on the other side of the pond {SHAME AND RATS I cry}.Anyway I  want to say I wish and every one of the very best for the future and thanks for the ride. Maybe those Jackassess in charge of t.v. over will let others find out why this has been one of the best comedy shows ever mad. Thank you.

  Thankyou for many enjoyable Monday nights.  Your show helped to ease my homesickness for Saskatchewan and many of the characters I knew there.  Gods!  I will miss the show.
  I wish you all the best in your careers and I look forward to seeing you all on TV again.  Maybe all together again in a Cornergas movie...?
  Farewell and thanks for the memories!

I have so enjoyed your show over the last year, I am a newcomer to it through cable on WGN....I live in Texas, and this show was the best thing going, is there anyway I can get all the seasons? as I only saw season 3 on WGN...I am gonna miss y'all!! I can't say I had a favorite, because each character had something different to offer in there personality that I loved! I am a Corner Gas addict from Texas.

Thanks for giving me such a great escape from the every day grind!

I want to thank my doctor.. Stephen LeBeuf, who is from Saskatchewan, for turning me on to Corner Gas.
I guess he knows  that laughter is good medicine.  He asked me if I had ever watched the show, and I told him I hadn't, but it looked kind of funny.  He said, 'Watch it.  It's pretty good.'
That was around 5 years ago.  I love the show and all that you do. Thank you so much for all the laughs.  I felt so sad to see you all say your goodbyes last night.  I was close to tears.  You feel like family.  I have never in all my years written to any celebrities about anything.  But you are Canadian,  you are in Saskatchewan (which is where my parents came from) and you are so funny and so endearing. Each and every character was wonderful. Brent, you did a fabulous job.  I'm gonna miss you all, more than I care to admit. I love you all.  Best wishes to all of you in your endeavers.
Maybe a little show called 'the Ruby' could follow?  With all the same characters? Hmmmm?
Big hugs and again... Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Campbell River, BC loves you.

Hi Gang

It has been a pleasurable six years of watching and laughing and enjoying your shows.

I am saddened by the fact that there will not be any further shows.  I have collected all five.......soon to be six seasons on DVD so I can console my self with watching reruns but it will never be the same.

I was saddened with the end of season 5 when it looked like it was the end of Corner Gas as they sold the station and the Ruby and Lacy drove off into the sunset.......but was glad to find out it was only a Dream with Hank thinking about it.

It was very clever of how you did end the sixth season.    Real classy.

Brent (the creator of the show) bent down, picked up his pencil....stood back and admired what he had done.....and then put the pencil in his pocket in case he had to write another series.

I felt proud at the end.............happy to have felt that I was a part of it all........and thought....WHAT A GREAT CLASSY ENDING TO A CLASSY SHOW.

Many thanks to all of you for making me laugh till the tears came down......remember things from the past.... and just enjoy my self.

All the best to you in the future and may success follow you where ever you go...........

And as Bob Hope would say................THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES..


Sincerely yours

It sure sucks that there are not going to be anymore new episodes.  I just feel very lucky the the seasons are on DVD so I can still watch Corner Gas anytime I want.  The worst part about it being gone is that the show that is gonna take its place is most likely gonna be something just stupid, it can't be as good as Corner Gas we all know that.

So sad to see you guys go.  My husband and I enjoy the shows over and over and over again.  As a few other people have mentioned, it's a smart move to leave while it's fresh and still good, rather than fizzling away into oblivion.  I may be American, but part of me lives in Dog River ... where there's not a lot goin' on. 
Miss you,  FloCat

Hi Everyone at Corner Gas

You have put on the best show I have seen and enjoyed in a long time.  I always watched Corner Gas as often as I could.  You saved the best for last.  I always looked foward to when I could watch your show.  There is a little bit of home in your show.  I will always be watching Corner Gas whenever I can.

My best wishes to all the cast members, and everyone involved in the show.  May you all have a wonderful time doing what you love and do best.  Brent, I watched one of your stand-up shows, you are great!

Maybe a Return to Corner Gas, Part II, do you think!

All the best to everyone and happy trails.

Thank you very much for a wonderful show.
