“u0026quot;The Dukes of Hazzardu0026quot; is- I reckon- one of TVu0026#39;s classics from the 1980u0026#39;s. This is a show with great stunts and stunt people pre-CGI special effects and some well-drawn out characters.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe problem with this show, is not that it is poorly written. Some of the plots are actually very good, and u0026quot;The Dukesu0026quot; is a better show than some of the other idiot sitcoms of TVu0026#39;s post Golden era, namely u0026quot;Batmanu0026quot;, u0026quot;Gilliganu0026#39;s Islandu0026quot;, and of course u0026quot;Sabrina the Teenage Witchu0026quot; of today.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAdventure shows like u0026quot;Charlieu0026#39;s Angelsu0026quot;, u0026quot;Wonder Womanu0026quot;, and u0026quot;Smallvilleu0026quot; of today have camp elements. But The Dukes of Hazzard is not just from time to time intentionally goofy, it is almost always intentionally stupid. The stupidity of the show smothers some tender moments between Uncle Jesse Duke (Denver Pyle), and his family, niece Daisy (Catherine Bach), and nephews Bo and Luke played by John Schneider and Tom Wopat.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eOccasionally there is some serious drama like when Uncle Jesse is almost in tears when heu0026#39;s about to lose his farm to the thoroughly underhanded Boss Hogg, or lose his boys to a bounty hunter who wants to put them away for life, or Bo and Luke trying to protect a beautiful young witness from the clenches of a rogue U.S. senator. But if these tender moments give the show any credibility as a real drama, it is abruptly smothered by lots of slapstick, stupidity, redneck humor, the dimwitted Sheriff Roscoe P. Cotraine (James Best) and the antics of the totally corrupt, bloated Boss Hogg.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eLong time character actor Sorrell Booke, unknown to most, but carrying credits from u0026quot;All in the Familyu0026quot; among others plays the conniving, scheming, bloated, and thoroughly corrupt lawman of Hazzard County in the u0026quot;Dukes of Hazzardu0026quot;. u0026quot;The Dukesu0026quot; was this actoru0026#39;s claim to fame, and Booke WAS u0026quot;The Dukes of Hazzard.u0026quot; After Bookeu0026#39;s untimely death in 1994, the cast members got together for three reunion specials on CBS. It was clear the Bookeu0026#39;s presence was sorely missed. These reunion shows were lamer than the General Lee at The Battle of Gettysburg and Custeru0026#39;s hope of defeating the Union army. Bookeu0026#39;s absence proved that he was the center and most irreplaceable piece to this classic 1980u0026#39;s comedy/adventure.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSome people down South like the u0026quot;Dukesu0026quot; for its fast cars chasing and colliding for half of every episode, or the hot chicks like Daisy Duke, or are intrigued by the luscious women that sometimes draw Bo and Luke into a trap. But none of that matters if you donu0026#39;t have an enormous presence like Bookeu0026#39;s Boss Hogg in the middle to stir up trouble in olu0026#39; Hazzard County.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eBogg Hogg is not a demon, but he is a devil. he is cunning, conniving, shrewd, and very avaricious. He has this wrongful vendetta against Jesse Duke and is always scheming with yankees and no-gooders to rob Jesse of his farm and land. Yet Boss Hogg is not seen as a mean character, but as a buffoon. He has a monopoly over Hazzard County, and still has this obsession with foreclosing on the Duke farm, and getting Jesse Dukeu0026#39;s two nephews u0026quot;thrown permanently in the clinku0026quot;.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSheriff Roscoeu0026#39;s u0026quot;little fat buddyu0026quot; also eats, and he eats, and he eats, and he eats, and he takes a cigar break, then he eats. He must consume about 20,000 calories per day. He takes pizza breaks, pigs knuckles breaks, eats ham hocks, and a family size portion of fried chicken in one sitting. A snack for him is a dozen kielbasa sausages with sauerkraut, or a sixteen scoop ice cream sundae with whipped cream, caramel, chocolate, strawberry, and butterscotch topping.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAnd the dimwitted Sheriff Roscoe P. Cotraine, Doesnu0026#39;t Boss Hogg ever let this man eat? Maybe Roscoe canu0026#39;t properly carry out his duties as Sheriff because heu0026#39;s famished. For example Boss Hogg says u0026quot;Roscoe. Donu0026#39;t ever disturb me when Iu0026#39;m trying to use these here chopsticks, to enjoy me this here Chinese lunch ( a complete course with six egg rolls).u0026quot;u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eJames Best as Sheriff Roscoe is the king of slapstick comedy, and his deputies are the princes. Roscoe is the perfect foil figure to the Duke boys, and could never catch them to help silence them during Boss Hoggu0026#39;s nefarious schemes. Heu0026#39;ll trip and fall on his own shadow, or hit himself in the back of the neck with a shovel. The Dukes always overcome the blustering and deviancy of Boss Hogg to save him and Sheriff Cotraine from the clenches of the real dangerous criminals. Yet Hogg continues to play every trick in the book to swindle old Jesse Duke out is farm and send his two boys u0026quot;to the pokeyu0026quot;. When will he ever learn common decency?u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eu0026quot;The Dukes of Hazzardu0026quot; is a show that thrives on intentional stupidity. This show is actually dumber than u0026quot;The Beverly Hillbilliesu0026quot;, a 1960u0026#39;s CBS classic with a lot of the same redneck silliness as the more modern u0026quot;Dukesu0026quot;. I mean how many times can you go the right way down a one way street and encounter head on traffic? Unlike u0026quot;The Beverly Hillbilliesu0026quot;, u0026quot;The Dukesu0026quot; had charisma, character depth, charm and lots of color, and was very cartoonish. I mean how many people in rural Georgia have a sparkling red u0026amp; orange car with an eight cylinder engine, and four wheel drive that can easily outrun a Sheriff or jump a river? Them Duke boysu0026#39; car can do it.”
