Dukes on DVD Season 1

Warner Home Video has released all seven seasons of The Dukes of Hazzard on DVD in regions 1 and 2. On The Dukes of Hazzard DVD Series you will find that the DVD’s are crammed with extras, such as interviews with the cast and directors plus a look back to the shows hey days.

This three-disc set includes all 13 initial episodes of Dukes from 1979, a period fans fondly recall because some of the programs were shot on location in Covington, Georgia, rather than a Burbank backlot. Also noteworthy is that a couple of key characters, particularly Hazzard County’s corrupt lawman, Rosco P. Coltrane (James Best), hadn’t gelled yet into permanent hayseed stereotypes and were arguably more interesting at the beginning

At the center of the action is Sheriff Coltrane’s nemeses, cousins Bo Duke (John Schneider) and Luke Duke (Tom Wopat), a couple of wild boys buzzing through the backwoods in the “General Lee,” a souped-up Dodge Charger. Bo and Luke are good at heart but have to behave themselves while on indefinite probation, complicating but not halting their efforts to vex Rosco and his patron, diminutive bigwig Boss Hogg (Sorrell Booke).
