    this show sucks, i think it makes canadians look like hicks.
    yes i know its a small town and its a comedy but come on.
    i dont know about canadian shows they all look cheaply made and stupid.
    i love canada but i really cant stand our tv shows especially those that are trying to market themselves after american/british shows

    you just don’t like got t.v. that’s all. Canada had a show before called popstar, before american idol. So we had the idea long before them. Canadien television ROCKS!

    If you love Canada, learn to at least respect the wonderful talents we have here! Canadian TV has come a long way, and Corner Gas is one of the best Canadian shows ever made. But even outside of that, we have to support our Canadian successes. Nickelback, Thornley, three days grace, Anne Murray (who I don’t care to listen to), and a whole pile of others derserve our suppport! They help to put us on the map, and when you consider that we really don’t have a huge population to draw our talent pool from, it’s pretty darn impressive when you think about it!

    just gonna throw something in there, the canadian show called popstars was an original british show which then came to the u.s then eventually came to canada.
    you may have heard of the american group that came out of it… umm otown?
    how about eden’s crush (one of the singers is now the lead of the pussycat dolls.)
    just gonna say something.. not sure if you even read my comment but i was talking about canadian tv.
    music is another story, if you like those bands/singers good on ya someone has to pay for their houses.
    i dont know why people are getting so upset, i was talking about the quality of television, and great if you people find that show good, i dont.

    oh sorry no otown came out of the show making the band…
    still canada didnt come up with these shows, the majority of what is “canadian” television is really a knock off of other shows. the other shows which are originals are just poorly made and the quality just doesnt stand up to other television.
    this says absolutely nothing about me liking my country or being a proud canadian, its called freedom of speech, we have that here.

    Corner Gas – Its’ A Gas! Best “Clean” Comedy on TV Since Andy Griffith!(As far as I’ve seen on station WGN, no P.C. undercurrents in the scripts – so SICK of that in American “sitcoms”.) So, giving a shout of “Thanks” to all the aggravating writers for going on “Strike” this year! Ya broadened our horizions:into Canadian television and its’ lovely countryside. Our “Viewing” habits will never be the same again….
