Dukes of Hazzard at their best
Rama Rao | Annandale, VA, USA | 03/20/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Dukes of Hazzard is one of the funniest comedy-drama that combines the drama of Starsky and Hutch; and the sweet southern charm of Beverly Hillbillies. Every character on this show is lovable and each of them brings to the show his/her talent and makes this show a very entertaining for young and old alike. Of course Bo (John Schneider), the good looking one; and Luke (Tom Wopat), the smart one makes a wonderful team in the lead role. Veteran actors Denver Pyle (Uncle Jesse) and Sorrel Booke (Boss Hogg) bring their years of TV experience to add strength and character to the show. Rosco Coltrane (James Best) as the Sheriff of the county is the funniest and entertained a large population of young viewers during its seven year run There are 23 episodes on four discs in season 3 of the series, and good writing and excellent stories make this season better than the first season. In this season we also see the departure of Deputy Enos Straight and the incoming deputy's role played by Rick Hurst as Cletus Hogg. There are some excellent episodes of the series from season 3; The Great Santa Claus Chase, To Catch a Duke, The Hazzardville Horror, Mrs. Rosco P. Coltrane, My Son, Bo Hogg, and The Great Hazzard Hijack are some of the funniest shows, and you don't want to miss this. This is reasonably priced and all fans must own this set."
