As I’ve mentioned before I subscribe to Amazon Prime. It’s not as worthwhile for us as it was when I was purchasing a lot of equipment and taking advantage of Amazon’s free two-day delivery but we continue to buy enough online that it’s still worthwhile.
One of the perks of Amazon Prime is Prime Video. You can stream thousands of different movies and television programs, some old, some new, some domestic, some foreign. I’m using Prime Video, for example, to brush up on my Russian by watching Russian television programs.
Recently, we discovered a gem of a Canadian situation comedy from the recent past that I’d never heard of: Corner Gas (2004-2009). We find it hysterically funny. It takes place in a tiny town in rural Saskatewan that consists, mostly, of a gas station and a cafe. Here’s the words to its theme song:
You can tell me that your dog ran away
Then tell me that it took three days
I’ve heard every joke
I’ve heard every one you’d say
You think there’s not a lot goin’ on
Look closer baby, you’re so wrong
And that’s why you can stay so long
Where there’s not a lot goin’ on.
If you’re on Prime (or find it somewhere else) check it out.
