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.
