I haven't purchased the dvd set yet. Out of stock in my area. I want to comment on the talk of racism of the show. As a 30 year old Black man, that watched the show religiously growing up, I find no racism in the show at all. Sure they weren't as many Blacks regularly on the show, that doesn't come from the tone of the show, that's comes from the politics of Hollywood at the time.

I was born and raised in DC, spent my summers in NC. In fact, I now live in NC, so the good nature of the south has always been in me. I can relate to the Dukes and their struggle. Here is a show about two guys, no mention of their fathers, growing up poor, always helping their fellow man or woman, stood up for what was right, even against the law. Now if this isn't an example of an honest Black male growing up in the inner city, I don't know what is.

Forget color!!! This show was about family, struggle, triumph, heroism. If we as people lived as thoughtful and caring as the Dukes, the entire world would be a better place. I can't wait for season 2. Also check out the A-Team dvd set. I love the 80's shows!!!

Finally, the first season of Dukes on DVD. The characters took some time to flesh out before they became the stereotypical heroes and villians that most viewers remember the show for. In the beginning, Rosco was more of a corrupt cop and less of a lovable dope, which in many ways I prefer. Boss Hogg was also a bit more intelligent of a character in the beginning. And rather than just basing shows on car chases and "how to frame the Dukes this week" as in later seasons, the first episodes were intelligently written schemes that the viewer can easily get lost (in a good way) as to what's going on. The first five episodes were filmed in Covington, GA (before they moved to familiar backlot in Burbank, CA), and you really get the sense that these are southern people in the South, rather than the stereotypical backwoods feeling you get from the Burbank episodes. That these early episodes focused more on plot is most evident in "Mary Kay's Baby," the only episode in all seven seasons to not feature the General Lee. And personally, I'll buy this set just to get "Daisy's Song": since there were only 13 episodes in the first season, when Columbia House distributed these episodes on VHS cassette at two shows per tape, this is the show that got left out of their catalogue.
Also worth noting is that when TNN was showing the Dukes a few years back, heavy edits had to be made to each show to fit modern commercial breaks. When I got Columbia House's versions, I found that significant chunks, usually integral to understanding the plot of a given episode, were now present and accounted for. Having all 13 episodes available without edit is another reason worth picking this up as opposed to watching it on television.
By the end of the season, the characters were already becoming what we remember them to be, in my opinion, for the atmosphere and for the writing, season one is the best of the series.

Warner Bros is now removing the Confederate Flag from the General Lee. They claim the flag is a symbol of hate and represents racism. The irony is Warner has now admitted they have profited from racism for decades and never cared. They let the flag fly on the Charger because of greed instead of ethics.... BUT, I say the flag was there because nobody ever considered it a symbol of hate or racism. When the Dukes began in 1980, we had political correctness back then. TV producers were going out of their way to put Black actors in their shows. To attack preceived White Actors, with shows like Archie Bunker and the Jeffersons. You can bet if the flag represented what they claim it does today, CBS would have NEVER used it at all. They did because it didn't. It is only recently that we allowed bigots to change the definition of the flag so they can continue their crusade against any sort of Americana. It won't be long before you can't even fly the Stars and Stripes or say the word America.

I challenge anyone to find a single instance of racism in the whole series. You won't because there aren't any. As for Robert E Lee - he did not found the KKK and was never a member. The KKK was founded by Nathan Bedford Forrest. (Didn't you ever watch Forrest Gump? His name contributes to one of the first scenes in the movie.) General Lee did fight for the Confederacy, but it was only because of his belief in states' rights, not for slavery. In fact, he inherited 130 slaves and promptly freed them due to his hatred of the institution of slavery.

I grew up watching the Dukes of Hazzard on TV. It was good back then, and it is just as good today, maybe even better. The plot is fairly simple, it does not really take a detective to watch the show. You have the Duke boys, who Boss Hogg wants to send back to jail because they keep thwarting his scams. Thier Uncle Jessie, who they live with, was at one time a moonshiner who now is a lawful citizen. Now Boss Hogg is not an angel himself, he is always comming up with a scam to make money, and the Duke boys often find themselves in the middle of it. But all is not lost, because Uncle Jessie, Daisy, and Cooter will come to the rescue to make everything alright again in Hazzard County.
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.
