Huh huh, you said "butt"

John Rogers gets it right on Corner Gas. I've only seen a few episodes, but the show's qualities stand out after even one. And I think the larger point about TV and characters is well-taken - this is why it doesn't quite work when I try to describe Homicide or Firefly; the plots are neat, yeah, but what you really stick around for are the characters. I certainly wouldn't mind being told I'd spend the rest of my life in that Baltimore precint on or Serenity.
