It's Been a Gas!

The cast and crew of CORNER GAS have been humbled by the response that
CORNER GAS has inspired. We're going to miss you, too!

Devastated isn't enough.  I can't believe the show will soon end.  It seems just like yesterday that I was watching the premiere episode and calling my friends to see if they had watched also.  Today there is hardly anything decent to watch on tv and sorry to say there aren't too many good canadian shows to watch.  All the half hour episodes are all the same.  I can't think of one I actually watch other than Little Mosque.  Well even though I think you guys could have gone a few more years easily with a large fan base I am glad I can watch the reruns on tv until I get all the dvds.  Much success in the future and thanks for lots of laughs.

I had the utmost privilege of meeting Brent and Nancy after one of Brent's shows in Winnipeg. I will honestly remember it always. As far as I'm concerned, television will will never be the same after the last episode. The series finale hasn't been aired yet but I can't wait for the final season to be out on DVD to complete my collection. Good luck to all of you on your future endeavors. I truly love all of you. The magic you all created together is, and forever will be unequalled. True genius! Thanks for everything.

I would just like to say that the cast, crew and writers of Corner Gas have hit the nail on the head when it comes to portraying small town Canada and the Canadian attitude in general. I have done just about everything that the characters in the show have done or I know someone who has. I have seasons 1-4 and I will get the others as soon as they come out. Thanks for reminding me what it is to be a proud Canadian.
I won't say goodbye because I will replay all the episodes over and over for a long time. Thanks again.

I only started watching CG about a year and a half ago(late bloomer). But I have caught up well on just about all the episodes and I'm collecting the dvds now. I'm hooked and now youre gone. I'm so sorry for that. But thanks for the laughs, many of them. My son and I will miss you all immensely,and good luck to all the cast and crew on future adventures. At least I will be able to watch you all at any time now.
ciao!

Corner Gas has been a mainstay for us ever since its beginning and we are very, very sorry it is coming to an end. It was a "different" kind of show, really small town type but showed some of the ways of those living in a tiny town that alot of Canadians never get to see. It's too bad that CTV couldn't have Brett and as many of his friends to band together and form a new show with maybe a different name and a straight-through acting format, without all the jumping around scenes that appeared in Corner Gas episodes, more like a running story, linked week to week. However, I am unaware as to the real reason why the show is ending...financial by the network or actors/actresses wanting to move on to something different. Either way, Corner Gas will always be remembered by all and we hope to see it in re-runs if that is the network's plan. If not, it would be a shame. Goodbye Corner Gas, you'll be sorely missed!

Wow, it's gonna be hard to say goodbye. Brent I met you at the 2005 Juno Awards, I was in the audience and on a commercial you happened to be standing in front of me and I said "Hi" I have been addicted to you and the show ever since. No matter if its been a good day or bad I always laugh hysterically. My husband thinks I'm a little nuts because of how much I loose it sometimes. The Vespa got me going pretty good and he just smirked and stared at me in amazement at how I could find it that funny. I own all the seasons that are out and I watch them often, I'm sure Im been though them all at least 2-3 times, and that's not counting the episodes I watch on TV. I have PVR and every Corner Gas episode is scheduled to record and I watch most of them, even if it's an episode I just watched. I am so much looking forward to seeing your final episode, I'm sure you all did a fantasic job!!! I'll miss you and love you all forever XOXOXO

To all the great characters in Corner Gas.
How wonderful to be a part of this fantastic show.  My husband and I will miss it but not totally, as we have
purchased and received as gifts all the dvd's that have come out over the past years.  And we are looking
forward to purchasing the last one so that we may have it and watch the show whenever we want.
Thanks again for all the wonderful memories and we hope you enjoy your future endevors.

I will miss Corner Gas and all of its crew, especially lovable ole Oscar.  

His unique crotchety moments have provided my husband and I with many good bellylaughs.

Thank you, and I look forward to seeing you all on other TV shows in the future.

Growing up in a small Manitoba town and spending my summers in the Saskatchewan summer fair circuit and with a best friend in Tisdale, I have visited many "Corner Gas" places.   I am now living in Australia and my mom sends the DVDs but best of all you have reached Australian TV.  Now all my friends can see the way I grew up and why there are somethings that I say and do can only be explained as "from the Praries".  Others may not understand Prairie humor but we love it.   Brent and the crew you have done a fantastic job of bring back alot of memories, and in a small weird way showing the rest of the world why us Praire Dogs are Different and Proud of It,

To the Corner Gas Cast,

Thanks for all of the great laughs that each of you brought to myself each monday night for the past years.

But I have to say a special thanks to Fred (Hank). I dont know how you did most of the shots without laughing since I have laughed so hard on most episodes with Hank's shinanigans. He was a character that anybody could relate to and you could have not done a better job playing him each Monday.

I wish all of the Corner Gas cast (actors, producers, and technical workers) all the best in the future and thanks so much for the effort each of you put in making each episode.

Here is hoping there is a Corner Gas movie or a special episode in the future.

Here in Australia SBS TV ran your first 3 series. We were loving them all. After that thou they went back to episode 1 of the first series. Hopefully when they get to the end of the 3rd series again they'll have the 4th, 5th & 6th seasons for us to watch??? (I doubt it) Can't wait anyway (however long it takes). So this is a Pre- 'Sorry to see you go' message as it may take us a few years to catch up.

We love you 'Corner Gas'

From the very first trailer i saw on TV 6 yrs ago i knew i was gonna love this show. I am very sad to see the best comedy ever go off the air. My entire family loves this show! To the cast Brent, Lacie, Emma, Oscar, Hank, Davis, Karen, and all of the others i feel like i am losing family. You made those characters so real that it was like having family drop in on monday nights. I have all of the dvd's and will complete the collection when season 6 comes out. I have heard rumours of a CORNER GAS movie, i will be first in line if it comes out!!

Thanks for some awesome memories and alot of laughs. I am a CORNER GAS fan forever!!!!!

P.S Brent, thanks for bringing an unforgetable show to TV and Masterminding some of the funniest situations ever!

Best of luck to everyone. Mike Korpi

My family thoroughly enjoyed watching Corner Gas since the very first season.  My daughter (aged 6) especially loved watching the shows.  Her favorites was the episode where Davis tried to scare Karen with the fake snake.  She giggles every time.  When my daughter and I play board games we jokingly either whine like Hank when we lose or say "In your face" like Lacey when we win.  My favorite episodes were mainly in the first season with a tie between Taxman and my ex from Toronto.

It was a great ride and we'll miss the show tremendously.  It was very innovative and creative.  I want to wish Brent Butt the best and am looking forward to his next projects.

Corner Gas has really shown what Canadian TV is all about. Of course I won't mind watching the reruns, but Dog River will be missed. I'm glad that this show has been on for six whole seasons and is ending at it's best. The bar is set high for new Canadian TV shows. Thanks for all the laughs!

To all of you at Corner Gas;
Just typing this letter makes me sad. My husband and I will miss you so much. I can't believe we won't be watching  you on Monday nights. The writing and acting is so amazing. What a great bunch of characters. I can't even say that I have a favourite... I love you all. 
You will be sadly missed and I wish you well in all your endeavours.
Thank you for making me laugh!!!!!

I live in Toronto, but I finished High School in Regina and my BA degree in Saskatoon.  The series reminded me of the 9 years that I spent in Saskatchewan, while providing great entertainment at the same time.  The number 13 is my lucky number and I'm sure that your final episode will be a joy to watch.  At the same time, I'll miss your writing creativity, great acting, and all the characters.  Best of luck to all of you, and I hope to see something new from you soon.  Thank you and best wishes.

To my other family at Corner Gas. Each one of you brought something special to your characters. I could never pick one as my favourite, because you have all been my favourite. I will truly miss watching all the antics everyone gets into. Very sad to see you go. Hope to maybe see something in the future. The very best to everyone, and thankyou for making me smile.  Sincerely Joan Stevens

Brent and crew,
Wah! I will miss all the good times that you have shared over the years. Although it is a spoof of real life, my life has so many parallels to your show. My parents are just as bonkers ask Oscar and Emma, I have a doofus for a friend/Hank, and don't get me going on my co-workers. It is sad that all good things must come to an end, but I respect your descision. Hopefully there will be a movie or some such in the future.
It was good to see a Canadian show, that is hokey and celebrating Small Town Canada hit it big on the world stage because what is "funny" is universal. I love that I "get" Brent's humor and so do many other people. Thank you for all the good times and laughs you have given me. Whatever lies in your futures, I will always be a fan.

So, corner gas is my most favourite show...ever.

The ony reason that I met my boyfriend of a year is becasue I facebooked corner gas and found out that we were mutually fans. We discussed the show and held a marathon, where I got my first kiss.

You have come into my life, just two seasons ago, and I must say you are the best comedy show on TV these
days. I live alone, and and the neighbors must think I am crazy because of the laughter.  I am lucky where
I live, as I can see the show 4 times a days, plus CTV on Mondays.  I never get tired of  your shows.
The actors fit their parts perfectly, I enjoy each one of them equally--they are GREAT!!!  I surely will miss the show, but hoping the Comedy channel will continue to supply my need for "Corner Gas". My two favorite
Canadian comedy shows will be off the air--where will the next one come from? 
Anyway--Great show  & I will miss you all!!!!!!    HAPPY TRAILS- allie

Dear Brent, Fred, Tara, Lorne, Nancy, Eric, Gabrielle, and Janet: Thanks for all the memories. Your show has been the only one I've cared about watching every week, and with so many channels and shows to choose from, I hope that says a lot. I've now got my 9 year old daughter hooked on the show as well. Now I just need to collect all the DVD's. You guys did a fantastic job, and I hope you've been able to reap some 'benefits' as a result. You deserve the success. Thanks again, Tom in London, ON

I shall miss Corner Gas so much.  There are many so-called comedys on tv that are any thing but comedies.
Violence, foul language and bitterness against others, that Corner Gas is such a a treat.  Everyone knows
an Oscar (my uncle for instance); a Hank and all the rest of the fine people who inhabit Dog River.  And
there are many questions to be answered.  Will Karen be promoted?  Lacey ever be accepted, not 
always the outsider?  So sorry to see you all go, but best wishes to all the inhabitants of that Saskatchewan
town that helps us all remember you can be funny while not being nasty or vulgar.  And what happens to
Prairie Scramble?  Fancy

I live in Mexico city and the show is not aired here but been to Canada and have your DVDseries because for me, you represent the real Canada, the one that is not like my city. You have made me laugh so much that it's sad to see it end. I'll fly to Can on April 13th on a business trip and will surely watch you, guys. THANKS for being so true to the Canadian values.

Another classic ends. It’s been 26 years since M*A*S*H ended and 10 years since Seinfeld, and until Corner Gas my husband and I couldn’t find a weekly TV series that we enjoyed watching together. 

We have many favorite characters and episodes of Corner Gas, and always appreciated the Canadian content, wit and humor. Thank heaven for DVD – and many thanks to all the cast, crew, and behind the scenes people (James the programmer for Corner Gas Online) for a great show and proving that “if you make great TV, Canadians will watch” and so will the rest of the world. 

Thanks for the laughs!

I have loved the show.  The setting, the characters, the plots lol, and of course all the humour.  But mostly, there’s just something about it that I can’t really describe.  Anyways, ever since I saw the ads before the first show ever aired, I knew that it was my show.  I was so excited, and you haven't disappointed!  I’ve never missed a single episode, and the only other current show that’s like that for me is Mose from The Office.  I will miss you guys!  And lastly, I appreciate what you guys have done in real life, for your fans and for charities.  (Gabrielle if you’re reading this lol, it’s so cool that you delivered a goat for World Vision!)  Godspeed!

Who was it who said, "Always leave em wanting more"? Well Corner Gas will definitley do just that. This is, by far, my favorite show on TV. It is easily the greatest Canadian comedy in our proud countrys history and is one of the greatest ensenble comedies in the history of television. As much as I will miss it I can't help but agree with Brent Butt when he said he wants the show to go out on top and have people remember it that way. This show has been at the top of it's game from day one right until the end. I just wish it wouldn't be ending so soon...

 For me, this show has done so much for our country from coast to coast in a way no politician can equal. It brought us a little closer together and reminded us of who we are in its own quirky but somehow comfortingly, familiar way. 

I'm looking forward to following all of the cast's careers after Corner Gas and wish them all happiness, health and continued success. Thanks to the cast, crew and writers for all the laughs and great memories and thank goodness for re-runs and dvds!

Thankyou to all the cast and members of corner gas.  My husband and I have never laughed so much watching tv til your show came on.  We enjoy watching Eric Peterson in so many shows but Eric, you outdid yourself on corner gas.  You are the best.  Wayne and Nancy
