Season 2 does not disappoint,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Dukes of Hazzard: Season 2 (DVD)
Warner Brothers should be congratulated for their fantastic presentation with THE DUKES OF HAZZARD, SEASON 2.
The sound quality and picture are both crisp and clear, probably more so than when these episodes originally aired on CBS in 1979-1980. The packaging is absolutely superb...great pictures, some never before seen, and it includes a great 1979-era cast photo inside, and everyone is present, including Sonny Shroyer.
I really enjoyed the extra features as well: the screen tests for John Schneider and Tom Wopat were fascinating to see after all these years, and I hope more things like this see the light of day on future releases of the DUKES. The annual DukesFest celebration is also highlighted, and this coverage includes interviews and footage of original stars Shroyer (Enos), Catherine Bach (Daisy), Rick Hurst (Cletus), Ben Jones (Cooter) and James Best (Rosco), who were all guests at the DukesFest event. Footage of the event also includes a stunt show, profiles and pictures of individuals who own replicas of the General Lee, and even a hidden easter egg, showing the original cast clowning around with the crowd, led by Bach and Shooter Jennings, Waylon's son, who leads a sing-a-long of the DUKES theme.
Season 2 featured some of the DUKES OF HAZZARD's best episodes, including "Days of Shine and Roses," "People's Choice," "Granny Annie," "Find Loretta Lynn" and of course, "The Ghost of the General Lee," one of the best episodes of the entire series. A previous reviewer had a concern about "Carnival of Thrills" not being included here, but the episode did air in the third season, even though it was filmed late in the second. Photos that appear on the packaging of any TV on DVD set are usually not always just resigned to that particular season. And quite frankly, I saw the photo and on first glance, I didn't expect "Carnival of Thrills" to appear on this set, nor did I immediately associate the picture with that episode.
Highly recommended, and much looking forward to the release of seasons 3-7. I just hope we don't have to wait too long for Season 3 to appear.
