Overview

Those darned Duke boys are back at it again with The Dukes of Hazzard: The Complete Second Season DVD set from Warner Bros. Twenty-three episodes are here for your moonshining pleasure, presented in all their full-frame, mono audio '70s glory. Extras include Tom Wopat's and John Schneider's screen tests, along with crazy footage from the 25th-anniversary festival of the show in Tennessee. From stunt-car shows to the longest line of General Lee Chargers that you've ever seen, the fest is a confederate fan's wild dream that includes many shots of old Daisy Duke (Catherine Bach) and a special singalong concert rendition of the "Good Ol' Boys" theme song. Placed right next to the season-one release, this four-disc set is perfect for display and will provide hours of car chases, country tunes, and Uncle Jesse action for all you Duke enthusiasts.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Christina Urban
The Dukes of Hazzard continued its winning cops-and-robbers formula in Season 2, with the Robin Hood-ish Duke Boys -- Luke (Tom Wopat) and Bo (John Schneider) -- always eluding crooked Boss Hogg (Sorrell Booke) and Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane (James Best) in their souped-up Dodge Charger, the General Lee. But what made the second season more compelling was the behind-the-scenes drama. Sonny Shroyer (Enos) missed two episodes because of appendicitis and was replaced by Rick Hurst as Cletus, who would later become a regular in Season 3. Ben Jones (Cooter) boycotted most of the season because of a dispute with the producers over his refusal to shave off his beard. Then, Best refused to come to the set for the latter half of the season because, he claimed, the dressing rooms were unsafe. He was replaced -- and completely removed from the opening credits -- with various guest stars, including Bewitched star Dick Sargent. Despite the backstage disruptions, The Dukes of Hazzard hit No. 8 in the Nielsen rankings for the 1979-80 season with fare such as "Gold Fever," in which a group of con artists store gold in Boss Hogg's bank and the Dukes are set up when it is stolen. "Road Pirates" finds Boss Hogg buying stolen TV sets and blaming the Dukes when they disappear. The Dukes become suspects in a smuggling investigation when suspicious cars are found at the town derby in "Hazzard Connection." Perhaps the all-time best Dukes episode, "The Ghost of General Lee," finds the sheriff convinced that the Duke boys have drowned when the General Lee is stolen and driven into a pond. Guest stars that pop up this season include Pat Buttram, Mel Tillis, the Oak Ridge Boys, Loretta Lynn, NASCAR legend Cale Yarborough, and Gerald McRaney.
