Apologies to all. I did not mean to cause confusion although I clearly have, by omitting any textual information with the previous post.
The previous post refers to this post by Scarlet regarding his recommendation of a Canadian Television Comedy Show called Corner Gas. I followed Scarlet's recommendation and purchased Season 1 & 2 on DVD. It's a gas man.

The Dog River Howler is the title of the Local Paper. I just took the notion to copy the graphic. The pie comment was the best I could think of at 2 a.m.

This is neither a review nor a recommendation yet. I still have 20 odd episodes to watch. Go have lunch.

It's funny that this show is such a hit - and can you believe we never watch it? (being from Canadia, you'd think I'd be more supportive of local programming...)

Well, since it's Canadian, and if I had a TV, I could probably watch it. We get Canadian radio stations, so I'm guessing Canadian TV as well. I am only 30 miles from the border. Some of the radio stations play only french stuff, and it's odd to hear rock and roll sung in french....

Canadian Comedy is hilarious, what I have seen. I have not seen this show but I will have to check it out!

"Strange Brew", the early 80's Canadian movie with Rick Moranis. A classic.

Tanya, So far in my viewing it's not a normal sitcom, it has a charm.

Dick, I take it you choose not to have a TV?
Faire tout ce que vous voulez faire, mais l'uh-uh, miel, congédient de mes chaussures pas vous étape sur mes chaussures bleues de suède. Vous pouvez faire n'importe quoi mais congédier de mes chaussures bleues de suède.

Mel, It's getting taken up by the big networks I believe. If you see it listed give it a chance.

Dick, Thanks for the recommendation. I have not heard of this movie before. It is available on R1 DVD so I'll give it a shot on my next order.

Cat, I have a number of Father Ted shows on VHS; Buffy I could never get into. I liked Rutger Hauer in the movie, but the TV show just does not move me.

What other comedy shows do you like. There are some peculiarly Scottish ones like Chewin' The Fat and Still Game which you probably have not seen.

I love it when you talk French to me. Although I have to admit I have no idea what you're saying.. maybe I'll ask someone. Or get a French dictionary.

So Sans, Teri "informed" me what that French meant:
"To do all that you want to make, but the uh-uh, honey, congédient of my shoes not you stage on my blue shoes of Sweden. You can do anything but congédier of my blue shoes of Sweden".

I have no clue what that means. Even in English. But thanks, I guess..

Sorry Dick, I was trying to be topical by having some rock 'n roll in French.

Do anything that you want to do, but uh-uh,
Honey, lay off of my shoes
Dont you step on my blue suede shoes.
You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes.

I guess topical is not my fruit.

I also highly reccomend "The Office" (British version) and "Extras" (by the guy that created The Office (US & UK versions))

And "Black Books"

I like Canadian TV, I went on a business trip to Vancouver BC, and they had two hockey games in a row on network tv during prime time. I love hockey, and now I love CBC.

I like Canadian bacon. And Canadian folk dancing. I taught a class once for 10-year olds. I flunked everyone. Not because they weren't good at it, I just felt like flunking them. One little kid actually cried when he saw I flunked him. I laughed my ASS off!! HAHAHAAAaa!!!!

Scarlet, I have The Office, Extras 1&2 and Black Books 1-3.
I'm a fan of Bill Bailey and normally go to his gigs when he tours Scotland.

SushiBoy, I have only passed through Canada as an airline hub. I find hockey brings out the worst in me.

Dick, You can be so cruel sometimes... HahAHHA!..

I don't watch it either and I'm an ashamed Canadian. You're right though Andy, it has a bit of charm. Funny how I prefer Brit sketch comedies like Catherine Tate and Little Britain. Is a country swap in order?
