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!
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 KeoghSee all Product Description

I think what I liked most about this show was, for the half an hour it was on tv, it was a break from reality. You got to see basically good people having a good time. Even Boss Hogg, the "bad guy" in the series had a good heart, although he was a little greedy with the fried chicken and money. I laughed every time he smacked Rosco's hand when Rosco tried to take a peice of fried chicken. And I loved the car, watching the General Lee jump creeks, ponds, barns and other cars. Daisy was as sweet a southern bell as any I have ever seen. And Rosco often had me laughing so hard, with his little noises and facial expressions. I highly reccomend this series. Anyone who has a kids heart will love this show.
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.
The product content is great however. Growing up as a kid watching this show, I never got to see every episode. It did bring back a lot of memories. You will have to suspend belief as the show is very unrealistic and corny. But it is also holsum and good natured. The first few episodes were filmed on location in Georgia and really add to the realism of the show. Unfortunately, they moved the show to a California backlot which looked like a very fake town. Overall, I would rate the show a 5, but the packaging gets a 2. So I figured a 3 was a good compromise.
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.
