The Dukes of Hazzard Season 7....We loved it just as much as the first 6 Seasons!
Eydie
It's a great show for all ages and our 9 year old loves the "Duke Boys" just like his daddy.

The final season isn't as strong as the other seasons, but it has a good share of episodes. The only episode that was kind of all right was the "strange visitor to Hazzard" (I guess they were trying to get style points for having an alien invade hazzard.). Other than that, I'm happy to finally have all seven seasons of the dukes that I can watch over and over without commercials.

In the final season, toy models of each of the cars/vans were used for the jumps and other stunt sequences. Most of the real "General Lee" jumps were taken from the fourth, fifth & sixth seasons, with the exception of "Dukes in Hollywood", where they used the real Charger for a jump scene, and also "Danger on the Hazzard Express", although it was a small jump. The stunts with the toy models were done well, even though they had the General jumping over bigger objects, like a grain tower. Some jumps you could tell it was a toy model, and others were pretty close to looking like the real Dodge Charger "General Lee".

The episodes weren't as serious as the sixth season, but they had one episode "Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Duke", where Luke drinks water that's contaminated altering his behavior, and nearly tearing the duke family apart, not to mention nearly getting 20 years for robbing Boss hogg's bank.

Other than that, it's been a fun ride with the dukes of hazzard.

I'm praying that warner brothers will re-release the two reunion movies on DVD soon.

The 1984-85 season,the seventh and final of CBS's The Dukes Of Hazzard is exactly the same,in the aspect of cast,as when it premiered in January 1979. Only Sonny Shroyer was not a regular at the time of premiere. The opening theme is exactly the same and the montage is exactly the same as seasons 4 and 6. The closing instrumental theme is exactly the same as seasons 4-6. Highlights from this season include a guest appearance by off-screen narrator,now-deceased country music artist Waylon Jennings. The composer and performer of the DOH theme plays himself. Deputy Enos Strate(Shroyer) was bodyguarding Jennings' trailer while Jennings was in Hazzard County for a concert or two. In HAPPY BIRTHDAY GENERAL LEE,Luke(Tom Wopat) and Bo(John Schneider) flashback to about a decade earlier when they first obtained the 1969 Dodge Charger that was named "The General Lee". Luke and Bo were falsely accused of some felonious crime and were taken to a penetentiary,much to the delight of Sheriff Roscoe Coltrane(James Best) and his brother-in-law Hazzard County Commissioner Jefferson Davis "Boss" Hogg(the late Sorrell Booke). A sick,hospitalized boy meets his idol,race car driver Cale Yarbrough,as himself. In ENOS & DAISY'S WEDDING,the second to last episode,Enos finally marries the woman he always loved,Daisy Duke(Catherine Bach). The wedding was never seen or subsequently mentioned. Two criminals are about to ruin the wedding but Luke and Bo thwart the criminals' plan and bring them to justice. Enos ends up with the measles toward the end of the episode. In the series finale,oddly entitled OPENING NIGHT AT THE BOAR'S NEST,which was written and directed by Schneider(credited as John R. Schneider),Luke,Bo and Daisy simulate Peter,Paul & Mary via two acoustic guitars played by Luke and Bo respectively.Read more ›

From One-Armed Bandits to Opening Night at the Boar's Nest, it's been a heck of a ride. It has been so much fun reliving the series through Warner Bros. DVD collection of the entire run of the Dukes Of Hazzard. Although season 7 had it's share of problems, it's still right up there with some of the best television you can find. There were a few episodes that were extra cheesy, such as "Robot P. Coltrane" and "Strange Visitor To Hazzard" and most of this season was riddled with the ridiculously cheap looking car stunts performed by miniature models of the General Lee and the Sheriff's patrol cars. However, I did find myself getting a little emotional on the final episode, knowing that this was the last time that The Duke boys would drive and jump the General Lee and this would be the last time that Rosco would cut loose with one of his patented coo coo coo's. The final scene of the last episode when a distraught Rosco was tearfully talking to his fat little buddy, after he believed he made him disappear permanently further convinces me that James Best is one of the best an most versatile actors I have ever seen. If you are any kind of Dukes fan, you must cap off your collection with this final season. The only thing that would make this ride sweeter is if they would release the 2 reunion movies on DVD and also if the Dukes got together for one more go-around. Thanks for the fun Dukes and keep it between the ditches.

I have always been a DOH fan. I dream of owning my own General Lee some day. I had a crush on Daisy to. I am glad to now own every episode. I hope they release the reunion movies & the Enos series to. I spoke to Sonny Shroyer (Enos) about his series & he said they had approached him, but that's all he could say. So it's possible!!

It's 1985 and the series has finally ran out of steam. I'm a dukes fan, always will be and people will probably tear me down for what I have to say. But I can't get into the later seasons of Hazzard and season 7 certainly came to an abrupt end. When you run into episodes concerning little green men visiting Hazzard county, you can't help to laugh and say, this series should have been over at the end of Season 2. Some of the storylines in this series are so bad, you might find yourself wanting to skip it all together. My biggest pet peave is that the "realism" died clearly after Season 2 was over. Season 1, (well, the first 5 episodes at least is 5 hours of pure entertainment. Those first 5 episodes within season 1, filmed directly in beautiful Covington Georiga, not on a Hollywood backlot in California, simply has a better feeling at being at a real-time locale. The storylines, the writing, the realism of the show simply died and season 7 is clearly at the bottom of the barrel. And I am still annoyed by the projector screen backdrops in these later seasons. It's so fake it's almost laughable. Fans will clearly notice how it looked so much better when they were actually in the car with the camera on the hood of the car. It's those teeny added touches from Season 1 and 2 that are sorely missed and season 7 is no exception.

Rosco ruined it for me even moreso in season 7 as his character basically turned into a bumbling baffoon and his stupidity got worse from season to season. No longer a corrupted sheriff, rosco evolved into a crybaby with no seriousness at all. The comedic atmosphere in the final seasons are wy over done. Seeing aliens visit form outerspace was enough to make me puke. I missed the awesome storylines, they clearly ran out of ideas.
