Trivia

There were many life-not-imitating-art aspects to Sorrell Booke's casting as J.D. Hogg as a naive & stupid man, meanwhile in reality, Booke was an Ivy League graduate who spoke several languages fluently and had done military intelligence work during the Korean War. The character was humorously and almost like a human cartoon, while Booke was well-established as a serious actor before accepting the role. Hogg appeared grotesquely overweight, and Booke in real life had to wear a huge fat suit to achieve the comedic dimensions sought. And while Hogg was a rightfully hated fictional character, Booke was well-liked by the cast and crew; in fact, the 1997 reunion movie came about after the main cast members went to Booke's funeral in 1994 and ended up talking to each other afterwards.

Goofs

A main plot point of the series was Bo and Luke's probation, which restricted them from legally leaving Hazzard County. However, when actors Tom Wopat and John Schneider walked off set over salary disputes at the start of Season 5, the characters of Bo and Luke were temporally written off the show and replaced by look-alike cousins Coy Duke (Byron Cherry) and Vance Duke (Christopher Mayer). This move was explained by informing viewers that Bo and Luke had left Hazzard County to race as professional NASCAR drivers. But how could Bo and Luke travel around the country if they were still on probation? See more »

Can anyone ever really get enough?
11 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK, I'm a junkie. I just can't help myself. I watched the "Dukes" episodes when they originally aired, built a website for the show in the 1990s, watched the show again on TNN (when it was the NASHVILLE Network, you understand), wrote a book companion to the show, and now, as the show is airing again on CMT, I'm STILL watching the episodes again!

Was there any other TV show like it? I don't think so. "The Dukes of Hazzard" was a one-of-a-kind. You can watch these episodes over several phases of life and maturity -- and still find value in them! Holy cow.

I was always, of course, impartial to Flash, Rosco's hound, as well as the rarely appearing brother of our dastardly Boss Hogg, Abraham Lincoln Hogg, the "white sheep" of the family. And you could always appreciate the country values the Dukes always espoused ... be good to your neighbor, thank the Lord before meals, don't lie or cheat or steal.

"The Dukes of Hazzard" is not rocket science, it's not deep or profound or socially redeemable or whatever else. It's just plain heckin' fun!!!!
