The "Boring Saskatchewan" Stereotype Will Soon Be Long Gone.

This show is the best show I have watched since moving to Canada from Utah eleven years ago. I have watched hundreds of new shows—at least 25 of them being Canadian, because my husband is a TV addict and I always watch the first episode. So far only a few I have loved, and Corner Gas is one of them. The show, set in Saskatchewan, is the most amazing show I have seen. I have let my ten year old see a couple episodes, and permitted my twelve year old to save it on her Netflix. Appropriate for eleven and older.

Is It Any Good?

If thoughtful, witty humor tickles your funny bone, then Corner Gas deserves a spot on your TV itinerary. Just as Seinfeld pointed out the humor in life's most tedious moments, this clever Canadian series pokes droll fun at the ins and outs of life in a place where everyone knows everyone else's business.

The talented ensemble, colorful characters, and spot-on writing make this show an unexpected gem; the best part is that the lack of edgy content makes it perfectly age-appropriate for young teen viewers. So if you're searching for a sitcom to enjoy with your teens -- without any potentially awkward bedroom scenes -- give this one a try.
