Corner Gas Animated (Comedy Network) – Premieres 2nd April – Renewed
A reboot of a popular Canadian comedy, but this time animated. The show is set in Dog River a remote town in Canada ,where the petrol station is run by a slacker called Brent who has taken over the running of the place from his dad.
As Brent spends most of his time talking about old pop culture in an almost Clerks manner with his friend Yarbo. His dad is intent on making him more responsible by sabotaging the shop in a bid to make Brent act more professionally.
Along with Brent and his dad, his shop assistant Wanda is known as the smartest person in the town, but is regularly goaded by Yarbo to help him complete his more crackpot ideas. The local cafe is run by Lacey who is adamant to expand the culinary horizons of the town to no avail, and the police department is run by two vaguely inept cops.
For a comedy it’s not too bad and has some decent moments. It’s a more than acceptable way to burn 20 minutes.
