Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Just when you think you've seen it all in Hazzard County, the fun, rabble-rousing action-adventure series switches things up: Luke and Bo head off to compete on the professional stock car racing circuit, while their cousins Coy and Vance Duke (Byron Cherry and Christopher Mayer) take up residence at the Duke family farm. On the same right side of the law, the cousins find the General Lee's seats fit them just fine and, thanks to Boss Hogg's scheming ways, these two good old boys manage to get into just as much trouble as their cousins did. Plus, a familiar face returns this season as Deputy Enos Strate (Sonny Shroyer) rejoins the office of Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane (James Best) and his goofy underling, Deputy Cletus Hogg (Rick Hurst). So get ready for more car chases, moonshine hijinks and small-town brawls with The Dukes of Hazzard: The Complete Fifth Season!]]>
A familiar face returns in the fifth season: Deputy Enos Strate (Sonny Shroyer), gone from the series since 1980 but now rejoining the burlesque that is the office of Sheriff Roscoe P. Coltrane (James Best) and his goofy underling, Deputy Cletus Hogg (Rick Hurst). Season highlights include "The Revenge of Hughie Hogg," in which Boss Hogg's ever-scheming nephew (Jeff Altman) makes a return appearance, this time with his eye on defeating Roscoe in the latter's re-election bid for top lawman. (Hughie being Hughie, he blackmails his uncle into supporting his run.) "Ding, Dong, the Boss Is Dead" finds Coy and Vance actually helping Boss Hogg escape an old moonshine runner's certain revenge by staging their diminutive nemesis' funeral. "Comrade Duke" concerns a Russian gymnast who seeks asylum at the Dukes' farm. Bo and Luke return in time for a few adventures, capping the season with "Daisy's Shotgun Wedding," in which the overprotected beauty strikes out on her own and is snatched away by a moonshiner's son, who wants to marry her. --Tom Keogh

In hindsight, the introduction of "Coy and Vance Duke" into the storyline wasn't the great disaster it was in 1982. Schneider and Wopat walk off the show to strike over issues related to merchandise royalties, and the show clamors to hire two new individuals to fill the huge gap. Granted, the replacement cousins were no Bo and Luke, but hey, the character of Coy (played by Byron Cherry) was quite likeable and down-home like, and the change in roles allowed the show to experiment a little.
Rick Hurst ("Deputy Cletus") stayed on the show as Sonny Shroyer ("Deputy Enos") returns from his failed spin-off series, and it's great that we have both deputies on several of this season's early shows until Hurst finally departs. Secondly, the comedic talents of "Boss Hogg" (Sorrell Booke) and "Sheriff Rosco" (James Best) are second to none in the fifth season, as the two really stepped it up to ease the absence of Schneider and Wopat. The two really carry the weight of the season, and they do it hillariously!
Not only that, but one of the best episodes of the show's entire run, "Witness: Jesse Duke", shows the great talent of Denver Pyle ("Uncle Jesse"), and the chemistry of the "new Dukes" finally gels within the storyline and with the rest of the cast, only to be gone in the next episode.
Otherwise, the stories found in this season are very good, and afterall, Bo and Luke do return towards the end.Read more ›
I remember seeing some of these episodes first-run, and as I recall there were some good ones thrown in the lot despite the absence of Schneider and Wopat. Besides, they both returned to the show for the last few episodes of the season, so it is not totally devoid of them. Any Coy and Vance haters had best remember that, as boycotting this season will cost them a few Bo and Luke episodes.
Only two more seasons remain before we will be able to own the entire series in its' original, uncut format! That will all but render the chopped-up CMT airings obsolete.
