We still use the chili recipe in this book!

I've recently gotten addicted to watching Corner Gas every day - if you want real Canadian culture that isn't just the same stupid poutine and "eh"/"aboot" jokes, that show is as close as you can get. Anyway, I decided to buy this book, and it was very interesting, a look at the cast and crew who make this hit CTV show possible, not to mention the included photos of set designs, actors/actresses, info on how the idea for Corner Gas came about, and a few quotes here and there. :)

Even though it only covers the first 3 seasons of the best sitcom in North America, this book is a great read. It gives the reader a lot of interesting background information on Corner Gas, along with how Canadian television works (hint: Much better than the US version of it). If you're a fan of the sitcom, you'll want to read this book!

A must-read for fans of Corner Gas. This book has synopses of all episodes for the first three seasons, and background material on the setting and the characters. Extremely funny and a joy to read.

This is awesome. Was published while the show was still going on, so episode guide only goes up until season 3, but very cool :)

Totally Canadian. Lots of interesting facts and funny quotes! I always liked the show but now have a better appreciation for it when I catch the weekday reruns! Overall fun quick read!

Covering the creation and the first three seasons of the hit show, this is a serviceable but by no means revelatory collection. All of the actor related sections read like they came right from corporate PR, the behind-the scenes trivia was repetitiously prop related (and if the question being begged involved 'how did you make X' the answer was always 'Styrofoam'), and the plot recaps are nothing that IMDB doesn't do - and was doing a decade a go when this was published.
