    I discovered Corner Gas on WGNA many years ago and watched everything they aired which didn't include the final season. I found bit torrents for Corner Gas a few months ago. Seasons 1-5 are available from one torrent and season 6 is available separately. I watch an episode every night when i go to bed. I've rewatched the whole series once and have 45 eps left on the second round. Just watched "Mothers Day" last night.

    Most if, not all, of the Corner Gas episodes are available on youtube
    Here's the opening scene of the first episode.

    Thanks for reminding us to always check YouTube. I use a VPN to watch BBC programs but 90% of them are now available in full episodes on YouTube.

    I, too, watched the final season using other means, since WGNA (in its infinite wisdom) decided to NOT air that season.

    They just announced in another e-mail that they met their Kickstarter goal in one day...

    Another good thing about Corner Gas is that it's pretty much family-friendly. My teen-aged sons were watching it in a marathon over the Christmas break a couple of years ago, with their pre-teen sisters watching along, and my wife and my self actually enjoying not having to cringe or explain or even shut it off.

    Not too many shows we can all enjoy together.

    I hear where you're coming from. My wife and I were watching Malcolm in the Middle with our 10-year-old twins the other day, and all of the sudden we found ourselves having to explain to them what a "porno" is. :eek:

    Thanks for reminding me that I never saw season 6. I just watched it all yesterday from YouTube. Not really sure how it's going to play as a movie, but they've earned the right to try.

    And for those that enjoyed Corner Gas but like their humor with a little more edge, more adult themes and language, check out Trailer Park Boys. Another great Canadian series. One word of warning besides what I already mentioned, this one is more serialized. I'd recommend watching them in order.

    "A little more edge"??? TPB has about 75 f-bombs per episode, plus a s**t storm of variations of s**t. It's one of the greatest comedy series of all time but it's definitely NC-17 when it comes to language. Maybe R rated for drugs and alcohol.

    For family friendly Canadian, but also very funny:

    The Red Green Show
    The Kids in the Hall
    An American in Canada

    Maybe PG-13, but if anyone is into quirky (and I mean QUIRKY) comedy, my favorite Canadian series in this category is Twitch City. If Quentin Tarantino ever made a comedy series it would look something like this.

    Yea, maybe I was underselling it by saying a little more edge. More like a sharp razor. But really worth it.

    I love Red Green, but my wife hated it. Don't know if it's a guy thing or that my wife has no sense of humor.

    I never think of this one because it had a pretty long run on U.S. TV, but yea, it is Canadian.

    That's a new one to me, I'll have to find it.

    Another one I never heard of. I'll be looking for this too.

    But I can change
    If I have to
    I guess

    And men remember, if the women don't find you handsome they should at least find you handy

    I just watched the first few episodes of An American In Canada. Bob, I think you turned me on to a winner. I've really enjoyed it so far.

    It really plays on the stereotypes of both Americans and Canucks.

    I'm curious where you found them.

    This is so very true. A show I was happy to watch with my sons when they were younger.

    Great thread BTW, thanks for posting!

    You did not just call Kids in the Hall "family friendly".
