Amazon.com

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, Dukes available on DVD... April 18, 2004
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars No Racism June 17, 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
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!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mike, get your facts straight May 24, 2004
By Ben
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am so glad they are bringing the Dukes to DVD May 16, 2004
By Harry
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Season 1 Episode list March 25, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Let the Legend Begin (First Season)
The Dukes of Hazzard was rushed into production near the end of 1978, when the first few episodes were filmed in Covington, GA. Not until the Dukes proved to be an immediate hit was the Hazzard set built at the Warner Brothers lot in Burbank, CA.
(#1) "One Armed Bandits", January 26, 1979
The three Duke cousins root out evil in backwater Hazzard County in this series, which opens with the trio on the trail of a sheriff who is smuggling illegal slot machines into the area. Waylon Jennings wrote and performs the music, and punctuates the action with his off-screen homilies.
(#2) "Daisy's Song", February 2, 1979
Bo and Luke have suspicions about a music-publishing business that is bilking would-be composer Daisy. What they don't suspect is that Boss Hogg is in on the racket, or that the FBI is watching the entire operation.
(#3) "Mary Kaye's Baby", February 9, 1979
A borrowed car carrying moonshine and a pregnant hitchhiker carrying hot money add up to a wild and woolly car chase for Bo and Luke.
(#4) "Repo Men", February 16, 1979
Bo and Luke are duped into taking part in a car-repossession scheme that involves them with ruthless counterfeiters and could send them back to prison for violating parole.
(#5) "High Octane", February 23, 1979
A contest for a workable fossil-fuel substitute offers the Dukes a big cash prize and a patriotic excuse to resurrect the old still that produced high-octane corn liquor for years. Almost as tempting is the beautiful revenue agent who interrupts their work.
(#6) "Swamp Molly", March 9, 1979
Uncle Jesse yields to the coaxing of Swamp Molly, an old moonshining colleague who was - and still is - sweet on him.

Yep. Sorry it took someone so long to answer. But yes, mine is defective. I miss about 20 minutes of the episode. Skips about 30 minutes into the show.
