Product Description

Product Description

Good times with the good ol' boys! The General Lee is tanked up, revving and ready. Bo Duke is at the wheel. Cousin Luke rides shotgun. And all roads lead to fun when you travel with The Dukes of Hazzard. This 3-disc set includes all 13 first-season episodes of the multiyear series plus extras that do the Dukes extra proud. Tom Wopat and John Schneider play Luke and Bo, good ol' boys who are good enough when it comes to righting wrongs and staying a step ahead of Boss Hogg (Sorrell Booke) and Sheriff Coltrane (James Best). Catherine Bach is Daisy Duke, a smart, short-shorts wearing beauty who can make bacon sizzle from 200 paces away. Denver Pyle is wily Uncle Jesse. Ben Jones is car-fixer Cooter. And barrel-voiced Waylon Jennings provides the witty episode narration. Welcome y'all to Hazzard County!

Amazon.ca

The Dukes of Hazzard was part of America's redneck fetish in the mid-to-late 1970s, otherwise evident in popular songs, movies, and television shows highlighting fast cars, truckers, citizens' band radio, moonshine, irreverent hicks, and clueless lawmen. Created by writer-producer Gy Waldron and inspired by his own 1975 bootlegging comedy, Moonrunners, Dukes milked seven seasons of material from the tale of a Deep South family of reformed whiskey-makers and their running feud with a greedy impresario and his chief lackey, a buffoonish, venal sheriff.

This three-disc set includes all 13 initial episodes of Dukes from 1979, a period fans fondly recall because some of the programs were shot on location in Covington, Georgia, rather than a Burbank backlot. Also noteworthy is that a couple of key characters, particularly Hazzard County's corrupt lawman, Roscoe P. Coltrane (James Best), hadn't gelled yet into permanent hayseed stereotypes and were arguably more interesting at the beginning. At the center of the action is Sheriff Coltrane's nemeses, cousins Bo Duke (John Schneider) and Luke Duke (Tom Wopat), a couple of wild boys buzzing through the backwoods in the "General Lee," a souped-up Dodge Charger. Bo and Luke are good at heart but have to behave themselves while on indefinite probation, complicating but not halting their efforts to vex Roscoe and his patron, diminutive bigwig Boss Hogg (Sorrell Booke). The enmity runs both ways: Roscoe and Boss Hogg, with the aid of witless Deputy Enos Strate (Sonny Shroyer), dream up ways of eliminating the Dukes--including their wise old Uncle Jesse (Denver Pyle)--but their efforts always backfire.

While every episode is a variation on the previous one, predictability is a virtue in Dukes. The series pilot, "One Armed Bandits," finds Luke and Bo, with help from their sexy cousin, Daisy (Catherine Bach), diverting slot machines (smuggled into Hazzard County by Roscoe and Boss Hogg) to sundry watering holes where they can raise money for Bo's girlfriend's charity. In "Money to Burn," Boss Hogg tries to frame Bo and Luke for robbing an armored truck, while in "Deputy Dukes," the unarmed guys are forced by Roscoe to escort a deadly prisoner from one town to another. The Dukes hit back in "Daisy's Song," investigating a scam that took Daisy for $50 and implicates, of course, Boss Hogg and Roscoe.

Yes, it's a show about rubes, car stunts, and a legacy of moonshine, but there's something comforting about it, in a tongue-in-cheek way. --Tom Keogh

1. One-Armed Bandits (1/26/79)
2. Daisy's Song (2/2/79)
3. Mary Kaye's Baby (2/9/79)
4. Repo Men (2/16/79)

There are two reasons why The Dukes Of Hazzard lasted for seven seasons.
John Schneider and Tom Wopat.
They wouldn't let Warner Bros Television get away with churning out any old rubbish. If it wasn't up to the usual standard they would not hesitate to complain about it. The true definition of the word hero is that you do what is right not what is easy and both of them always lived up to that.

I'm a youngin' compared to most of the people who are fans of Dukes of Hazzard. At 17, I've been watching the reruns on tv for the last 2 or 3 years, but could hardly ever catch a full episode because they played the series at 3, when i was still in school.
Now I've got the Firt Season on DVD and can watch Bo and Luke Duke outwitting Roscoe P. Coltrane and Boss Hogg whenever I want. Through in the wisdom of an old coot like Jesse Duke, a crazy car mechanic like Cooter Davenport, a foxy chick like Daisy Duke with million dollar legs, and a love-sick Enos with a heart of gold but a loyalty to the law, and you've got yourself one hell of a tv show.
I cannot describe just how happy i am that they released the first season on DVD. I used to tape the show on tv and my parents would come into my room and say, "Watching Dukes of Hazzard, huh" with that shake of the head and smile that all parents seem to be able to pull off.
Anyway, if you have ever liked any of the episodes, or like anything to do with fast cars and chase scenes and just some good old fun, this is not an opportunity you should be missing. Buying this DVD will not only give you hours of entertainment, it will remind you of the 'good ole days' of the late 70's and early 80's for those who actually lived through it. I can tell you, watching this tv show, i wish i was a teenager in the 70's.

The release of this DVD collection is a testament to the enduring popularity of the show that the critics claimed wouldnt last past the first commercial break...the Dukes of Hazzard.Panned by critics but loved by the fans,The Dukes are now over 25 years old,and still running on all 8 cylinders.For those who were teenagers back during the 1979-1985 airing,seeing these programs in their entirety brings back all the memories of a time gone by...the school years,the show-related toys,the jumps on bicycles....it was such a part of most of us,its a genuine piece of Americana.Not widely known,Warner Bros sold more General Lee replicas than Rubiks Cubes in its day...and that cube thing was supposed to be an American Icon.Voted the most famous car star of all time,the General Lee was a blockbuster money maker for WB,and made the Dodge Charger one of the most sought after 60s cars....the popularity of the show must have also contributed to the eventual survival of the Chrysler Corporation (which was almost bankrupt during the Dukes early days)for every General/Police car was a Chrysler product of some kind...and showed on screen that only a truly quality built vehicle could be put thru the paces those stuntmen handed out to those unsuspecting cars.Dodge even revived the Charger name (Charger 2.2) in 1981,obviously to capitalize on some of the Dukes momentum.To see the impact one show about country boys made on America and the world,is to understand the whole idea of the program....."never meaning no harm"....a unique show,a unique cast,and a unique time in history.CBS was blessed to have such blockbuster shows,back to back on Friday nights...Dukes of Hazzard and Dallas...no Friday night program has ever been as successful since...in 1985 America lost its Dukes,and frankly,its never been the same since that last goodbye.

YeeHaw! Any Duke fan will be proud of this very handsome DVD set. It opens up to reveal a very rich and colorful photo of Luke and Bo Duke working under the hood of the General Lee. The 13 episodes of the first season are on two two-sided discs and one one-sided disc with big photos of Luke, Daisy, and Bo under the disc holders and photos of the other cast members on the sides. Because the series started as a 9 p.m. program, these first season episodes are a little riskier and harsher than later shows. The first episode, for example, has Bo (played by an 18-year old John Schneider) telling Daisy that if she wasn't his cousin he'd marry her with Daisy replying, "That never stopped anyone in this family before." When Luke refuses to help a young girl save a local orphanage, Bo kids his cousin, "at least two of those kids at that orphanage could be yours." Such jokes would not be used in later episodes when the series was a prime time hit. These are also the episodes shot in Covington Georgia.
The 1979-aired episodes include the following: (I) One-Armed Bandits: Bo and Luke use Rosco's slot machines to help a local orphanage; (2) Daisy's Song: Daisy gets caught up in a crooked music publishing outfit; (3) Mary Kaye's Baby: The Duke boys get involved with a pregnant woman, an Atlanta mob boss, and a borrowed car full of moonshine; (4) Repo Man: A crooked car dealer could land the Dukes in jail; (5) High-Octane: A very 1970s theme about the fuel crisis and Uncle Jesse's patriotic plan to alleviate the problem with his moonshine still; (6) Swamp Molly: Uncle Jesse helps old friend Molly on a last moonshine run; (7) Luke's Love Story: Luke's rival in Hazzard's stock car derby has million-dollar legs and a lead foot...
