Damn skippy I wish I had a couple grand extra to make a trip to this. By far my favorite show as a kid. I can remember forcing myslef to stay awake to watch it every week. Now I feel very old

I remember being shocked that Boss Hogg said jackass constantly. My childhood was destroyed by Carhrine Bach shores. (Had the poster)

Other musical performances through the weekend include Ben Jones & Cooter's Garage Band, Confederate Railroad and The Lacs, a "country-rap" duo.

Oh no.

I heard an interview with Tom Wopat the other day and he said he had never seen any of the Vance/Coy episodes.

I'm going to just assume that "country-rap" is stuff like "Convoy" and "The Devil Went Down to Georgia".

yup, and the "real" one had a 440 in it. All the ones they jumped and destroyed had 318s.

CSB:

When my brother was dying of leukemia, some newspaper reported that he was a HUGE Dukes of Hazzard fan. The cast and crew found out and Tom Wopat sent a hand written letter to him thanking him for being a fan of the show and promising him that as soon as he got better they would have him on the set and take him for a ride in the General Lee. He also sent a kick ass Bowie knife and had everyone sign the letter. Unfortunately he didn't get to ride in the car, but that letter meant more to my brother and parents than Tom will probably ever know.

I used to love this show.  This and The Love Boat.  As a matter of fact, when I was a little girl, it was my dream to grow to be Julie McCoy and marry Bo Duke.  Not sure how that was going to work out, you know, with me sailing to Puerto Vallarta every week and him in Georgia, but I pictured lots of blond babies that he would be taking care of while I was out being the ship's cruise director.
I had Dukes of Hazzard underroos, too.

On Friday nights Dukes came on at 7PM, The Love Boat at 8PM, and Fantasy Island at 9PM.  I really couldn't stay awake long enough to watch much of Fantasy Island, past "The plane, the plane."
Life was so good back then.

I hate that expression and I have no idea why. You're just being a nice person but still, it's right up there with 'pardon my reach' from a waiter... you're a farking waiter, reaching is your job fer chrissakes, why would I pardon you for bringing me things? Anyway, I want us together as a socitey to come up with something better than the old automatic 'sorry for your loss'. We can do better that.

As someone who grew up around the same time and with similar TV watching routines, I offer one piece of advice: Never, EVER look up Love Boat on Hulu. It will destroy your childhood 45 seconds after the opening title sequence ends.

It always took off as a 69. While in the air it was occasionally a Challenger. Sometimes it landed as a 72.

Continuity? It's a bullshiat word. A made up word.

if they remade Dukes of Hazzard now they'd be running meth. Daisy would weigh about 80 pound & have a face full of sores. Boss Hawg would still have diabetes.

David Allan Coe should do like the Who are doing with Quadrophenia and play Underground and Nothing Sacred in their entirety.  Maybe get Johnny Rebel to do a few too.
 
2013-03-06 02:21:21 PM  
You know they ought to get Josh Whedon to do a Dukes of Hazzard reboot. I'm thinking a couple of good old boys fighting vampire minions of the Duke of Hazzard in their kick ass car and exploding arrows.

How about this?
I have 12 brothers and I know that if something happened to any of them it would devastate me.  A long illness followed by the untimely death of a brother is not something that I want to experience for myself, therefore, in the hopes that Karma will not take one of my brothers from me, I will sympathize with the loss of your brother by offering what I believe to be words of comfort.

Or maybe, sh*t happens, at least it wasn't you, get over it?
The Dukes story was really cool.

I have resisted the temptation for fear that if I did, I would see something HORRIBLE.  Thank you for confirming my fears and I will no longer be tempted watch the reruns.
It is kinda like when I used to think Nightmare on Elm Street was SCARY and I could not sleep after watching it, then I watch it now and think, "what is this crap?"

Yes, all of those options are better than that stupid "I'm sorry for your loss".
