Number of Discs: 39
Join Luke and Bo Duke--a couple of good old boys--and their cousin Daisy Duke as they stay just ahead of the sheriff in their souped-up 1969 Dodge Charger, The General Lee, and have fun thwarting the plots of the corrupt county boss.
The Dukes of Hazzard settled into a comfortable run in season 2. The show, originally shot on location in Covington, Georgia, was now permanently produced on a back lot in Burbank, California. While a couple of cast members (Ben Jones, who plays mechanic Cooter Davenport, and James Best, who portrays Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane) briefly boycotted the series in its second year (ushering in a parade of brief replacements, including Mickey Jones of the New Christy Minstrels, Dick Sergeant of Bewitched, and James Hampton of F Troop), the actors relaxed into their now thoroughly cartoonish characters..
Season 3 finds The Dukes of Hazzard coasting on its popular 1980s formula. Cousins Bo (John Schneider) and Luke (Tom Wopat) Duke are still tearing up the road in their '69 orange Dodge Charger, the General Lee, while Boss Hogg (Sorrell Booke) everlastingly tries to frame them for everything from the theft of his cutlery at the Boar's Nest ("The Hazzardville Horror") to the heist of Stonewall Jackson's sword ("Along Came a Duke"). Meanwhile, leggy cousin Daisy (Catherine Bach) adds some dimension to her eye-candy character by becoming a reporter for the Hazzard Gazette ("By-Line, Daisy Duke") and a kidnap victim ("Enos Strate to the Top") whose innocuous photographs of Uncle Jesse (Denver Pyle) in Atlanta happen to capture a couple of bank robbers in action.
The Dukes of Hazzard: The Complete Fourth Season finds the redneck comedy down to a fine science almost comforting in its predictability. Cousins Bo (John Schneider) and Luke (Tom Wopat) still raise hell with the General Lee in rural Hazzard County (and still have no visible means of financial support). Daisy Duke (Catherine Bach) is still the picture of wildflower innocence despite her tomboyish temper and barely legal short-shorts. Uncle Jesse Duke (Denver Pyle) still basks in righteous anger at longtime enemy (and fellow former moonshiner) Jefferson Davis "Boss" Hogg (Sorrell Booke), the latter an unrepentant schemer for whom every living thing seems an obstacle in his quest for vast (and unethically acquired) wealth. As sure as the sun rises every day, any scene involving Boss Hogg and the idiotic Sheriff Roscoe P. Coltrane (James Best) will be played for maximum slapstick-cartoonish energy, all the better if dimwitted Deputy Cletus (Rick Hurst) becomes entangled in their shtick.
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!
Buckle up for more wild rides, because the boys are back! John Schneider and Tom Wopat return to Hazzard County to star as Bo and Luke Duke in The Dukes of Hazzard: The Complete Sixth Season, along with Catherine Bach as Daisy Duke, Denver Pyle as Uncle Jesse, Sorrell Booke as that ol' butterball Boss Hogg and more. Guest stars this season include Ramon Bieri (Badlands, The Frisco Kid) and a young Kim Richards (Escape to Witch Mountain, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills). Plus, in the episode "Too Many Roscos," James Best plays a dual role as both Sheriff Rosco Coltrane and a look-alike bank robber – thanks to some plastic surgery! Will the people of Hazzard figure out it's an imposter before it's too late? The action and adventure starts here!
Never meaning no harm and in trouble since the day they were born, the Duke boys – series stars John Schneider (Smallville) as Bo and Tom Wopat as Luke – still can't catch a break from the crooked hand of the law. But it's sure fun to watch them try! In the seventh and final season of this family-friendly, free-spirited romp of an action series, fans finally learn the story behind the General Lee and how that fast orange car came to be. Country great Waylon Jennings, who cleverly narrates each episode as the Balladeer, also makes a guest-starring appearance … as himself! Let's hope Boss Hogg doesn't stir up too much trouble with Waylon around. So strap in for The Dukes of Hazzard: The Complete Seventh Season and get ready for more good times and yee-haws with these Southern outlaws. The gang's all here! Plus, one of the all-time NASCAR greats Cale Yarborough also appears. Dukes of Hazzard fans, start your engines!
