Corner Gas, Episode 26: Pandora’s Wine

  • The Writers – Paul Mather and Kevin White
  • Director – Jeff Beesley
  • A brief synopsis –  Hank wins the lottery and ponders how life has changed for him within the town.  Davis and Karen suffer the consequences of a new pair of shoes.  Lacey opens up a whole new world of taste for Emma, Oscar and Brent.
  • The best line – Emma: Lacey’s bumped us up to a new wine bracket.  She…She’s opened our eyes to a whole new world.  Oscar: I hate having my eyes opened!  Emma: I wish we were back in the rut.  I liked the rut.  Oscar: Change is bad.
  • The best moment – The idea of combining breakfast, lunch and revenge is genius, and only something Oscar and Emma could dream up.
  • The best storyline – Oscar, Emma, Lacey and Brent.  Easy.
  • Notable guest appearance – n/a
  • Em’s Favorite Character – Davis, because when Karen was grouchy about the shoes, he got to drive.
  • El’s Favorite Character –  Karen and Davis because each of them were grouchy about their shoes.
  • Grade – A-

Revenge gets a whole new meaning when it comes to making someone crave your cooking or food.  Hank finds new ways to be a doofus and endearing at the same time.  Wanda, perpetually heightening the brains of the show, is rarely given a meaty story line, but she works her genius in anyway.  Karen, Davis and the shoes is goofy sit-com stuff, but that works perfectly well for younger viewers.  Prime example of a show that works on many levels.
