The Dukes Of Hazzard (DVD) Review
In the late 70's and early 80's, television viewers fell in love with The Dukes of Hazzard, a weekly foray into the fictional setting of Hazzard County, Georgia. Cousins Bo and Luke Duke (John Schneider and Tom Wopat) spent each episode trying to do good, while the loveable “Boss” Hogg (Sorrell Booke) concocted various schemes for making money and having the Duke boys, who always foiled his plans, thrown in jail for violating their probation (the result of a deal with the federal government to end the centuries-old Duke family tradition of bootlegging). Joining Bo and Luke are their Uncle Jesse (Denver Pyle), a grandfatherly figure who owns the family farm, and Cousin Daisy (Catherine Bach), whose skimpy shorts coined the cultural term “daisy dukes”. Along with “Crazy” Cooter (Ben Jones), the local mechanic, they create a formidable threat to the money-making shenanigans of Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane (James Best) and the owner of seemingly every business entity in Hazzard County, J. “Boss” Hogg. But critics will argue that the true star of the show was the General Lee, Bo and Luke’s bright orange Dodge race car with the Confederate flag pasted on its roof… The Dukes of Hazzard DVD offers a number of famous episodes, including the series premiere “One-Armed Bandits,” source of the video clips that would appear in the opening sequence of the show for much of its duration. Other notable episodes include “High Octane” in which Jesse Duke outsmarts Boss and Roscoe in his quest to win the government’s alternative fuel contest, and “Route 7-11” in which Bo and Luke unwittingly become part of an illegal gambling ring until Jesse comes to save the day. Also included on the first season Dukes of Hazzard DVD are The 20th Anniversary Hazzard County Barbecue documentary including John Schneider and Catherine Bach, Dukes Driving 101: A High-Octane Salute including interviews with professional racecar drivers, and The Dukes of Hazzard: Return of the General Lee video game preview… Below is a list of episodes included on The Dukes Of Hazzard (Season 1) DVD: Episode 1 (One-Armed Bandits) Air Date: 01-26-1979 Episode 2 (Daisy’s Song) Air Date: 02-02-1979 Episode 3 (Mary Kaye’s Baby) Air Date: 02-09-1979 Episode 4 (Repo Men) Air Date: 02-16-1979 Episode 5 (High-Octane) Air Date: 02-23-1979 Episode 6 (Swamp Molly) Air Date: 03-09-1979 Episode 7 (Luke’s Love Story) Air Date: 03-16-1979 Episode 8 (The Big Heist) Air Date: 03-30-1979 Episode 9 (Limo One Is Missing) Air Date: 04-06-1979 Episode 10 (Deputy Dukes) Air Date: 04-13-1979 Episode 11 (Money To Burn) Air Date: 04-20-1979 Episode 12 (Route 7-11) Air Date: 05-04-1979 Episode 13 (Double Sting) Air Date: 05-11-1979.
