The Dukes of Hazzard: Season 4
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
The daring Dukes are back and tearing up Hazzard County in the fourth season of this action-adventure series. Stealing money from an orphanage, hypnotism, poker … no scheme seems too outlandish to Boss Hogg (Sorrell Booke) when it comes to trying to keep down Bo (John Schneider) and Luke Duke (Tom Wopat). But knowing those good ol' boys and their good ol' family, they'll come out on top - or at least sliding across the top of their trademark car, the General Lee. Guest stars this season include singer Buck Owens, Steven Williams (21 Jump Street) and Jonathan Frakes (Star Trek: The Next Generation), as Boss Hogg's rich nephew who has eyes for Daisy (Catherine Bach).]]>
Season highlights include "Mrs. Daisy Hogg," with guest star Jonathan Frakes--destined to play Commander William T. Riker on Star Trek: The Next Generation (please note that Dukes' executive producer is one Paul R. Picard)--as a counterfeiter who falls for, and thus endangers, poor Daisy. "Double Dukes" finds Boss Hogg hiring two thugs to disguise themselves as Bo and Luke, but the real fun with this episode is a recent commentary track (optionally chosen via special features) with Wopat, Schneider, and Bach kidding around and reminiscing like naughty siblings. "Diamonds in the Rough," directed by James Best, concerns out-of-town gangsters searching for stolen diamonds stuffed in a Bugs Bunny toy that made its way from the Dukes' hands to Boss Hogg's Cadillac to Roscoe's hound. "Ten Million Dollar Sheriff" is a two-parter in which Roscoe inherits a load of money, and--for a time--becomes a kingpin even more dangerous than Boss Hogg. Comedian Jeff Altman makes a comeback as master-of-disguise villain Hughie Hogg, who implements grand plans to eliminate the Dukes and salt-of-the-earth tow truck driver Cooter Davenport (Ben Jones). Sprinkled throughout the season are musical performances by Buck Owens, Mickey Gilley, and other country artists. --Tom Keogh

I can not believe that this is happing so wonderfully fast, only Three Seasons remaining and only 61 episodes out of the total 145 episodes. Fantastic.
Season 4, as with all the DUKES releases, are of the utmost quality...clear picture, great sound and awesome packaging! I truly believe that the DUKES sets are the best packaged TV on DVD sets that I own. There are 9 single-sided discs here, each with a picture of a cast member or the General Lee on them!
The extra features are great...I was laughing along with John Schneider, Tom Wopat and Catherine Bach during their commentary for the episode "Double Dukes." Great stuff! The featurette is nicely done as well, with more interviews of the cast and series creator Gy Waldron. But man, Tom Wopat wasn't too friendly when speaking of the Coy and Vance characters who replaced him and Schneider shortly during the 5th season!
Season 4 is another great collection of episodes. I began to look over the episode list for this season and found there are too many highlights to mention. This season came at the height of DUKES-mania, and I never tire of watching it. It's great fun, clean and harmless. I enjoyed it as a child and still enjoy it in my late '20s!
It's also great to see Boss Hogg on the cover...let's hope more cast members make the cover of the box in future releases.
Greatly awaiting Seasons 5 through 7. Thanks, Warner!
The episodes are incredibly clear to look at on your TV screen. I give credit to Warner Bros. for the impeccable quality. Another terrific feature is that there are 9 separate discs. No more double DVD discs.
But the best feature is the show itself. The humor is good in places, and very good in others. It is a comedy and should be looked at it as such. Some people were offended by the Rebel flag on the General Lee. To me, this gave the car an identity that makes it stand out from the other characters. Other reviews have mentioned that this is one of the last shows to sit down and watch with the family. Absolutely right! This show, to me, is the by-product of a bygone era.
Terrific purchase if you decide or are thinking about buying the set. As mentioned, definitely the best season of the entire series!
One note of mention, I beleive it was John Schnedier who decided to criticize and downplay the men who played Coy and Vance in Season 5 especially when it came to the men being cast in the 2005 Dukes of Hazzard movie(in the extra feautres section). Very surprised to hear Mr. Schnedier say this. But I understood where he was coming from. John Schnedier, Tom Wopat, and the cast made this show one to remember. CBS had a wonderful hit, and the DVD will make you relive it every time you watch an episode.Read more ›
