Not A Lot Goin' On - Breaking News Special Report!

Well are my thumbs aching! Every so often the world of Corner Gas goes a bit crazy, a bit of exciting news hits the net, usually via Mr Butt, and then my phone starts buzzing with more notifications than the notice board of a bee colony village hall.

Last night was no exception.

It's a great time to be or become a fan of Corner Gas. In the last year and change we have had the run up to and release of Corner Gas: Animated, the news of record breaking viewing figures, live appearances and table reads from cast and crew. The list goes on.

Today, Dog Rivers boundaries have stretched past its usual confines of the boarders of Canada. Corner Gas is now WORLDWIDE!!

Thanks to the hard working team behind the scenes and the good folks at Amazon (who I will now forgive for chucking my last delivery over the six foot drop of my garden fence) the original six seasons of Corner Gas and the movie are available to stream in more than sixty countries around this little blue and green globe of ours. Who says Christmas miracles don't happen?

I started this site originally to see what the process was to getting television shows from overseas on to screens on home soil. I was hoping to report the no doubt complicated business of wheeling and dealing in the entertainment industry which was no doubt rife with red tape, contractual conundrums and the requirement of a ton of cash. Turns out the process is to sit and be patient. All good things ...etc.

No doubt there was a lot of wrangling that needed to take place, the road to world broadcasting has not been an easy one for Corner Gas. I'll save that story for another post. The effort to get the show to fans all over the world has paid off and we can all enjoy a good old fashioned, traditional binge watch over Christmas - just like Nan used to, and her Nan before her.

Here is the full list of countries that can now catch up with Brent and the gang -

The 100% Officially Unofficial Corner Gas Interactive Advent Calendar 2018!

It's here. December 2018. We are only days away until "he" comes to visit! As with every year it can get very difficult to keep track of what day it is and how long until we get to see if there has been a GI Joe - Ninja Office Admin Assistant action figure left underneath the tree. So, like a Ninja, I have leaped to your side carrying this years officially unofficial Corner Gas advent calendar.

This year we have an animated theme. Come back every day to get a special surprise from all your Dog River favourites by clicking on that days door. No cheating and clicking on all the doors all at once. Santa knows when you are naughty!

So grab an egg nog, crank up the "Now That's What I Call Songs That Have Been Playing in the Stores Since July" CD, relax and click away.

What is a nog anyway? Why are they always so eggy? Are there no cheese nogs or broccoli nogs?
