Defending Corner Gas

An essay explaining how both “Corner Gas” the TV show and now the movie reflect the best of Canada:

In fact the entire movie, about a tiny town going bankrupt, is really about how we, in Canada, react to crisis. It’s about us at our best and worst. The humour is absurdist, never mean-spirited. The look and feel of Corner Gas, the show, the movie, is distinct from U.S. comedy – it feels Canadian, without everyone talking about being in Canada, and there’s genius in that.
