  1. This is so awesome guys....its great to know there are alot of young kids as well as older ones who love the Dukes! Of course alot of the teens (not all) will love the new Dukes better, but thats to be expected I guess. For me John Schniender will always be the hottest Duke ever!!! 8)
  2. Yes I have to agree. I have watched all the dvd's and the specials and its been great. My 9year old son loves it and that in itself to me is a testimony to its appeal. Like the movie or not, I personally do think it helped to propel the show and all that goes with it into the spotlight. Heck, I have loved the show since 79, but had lost touch with it because it was off the air and I never saw videos or dvd's of it anywhere. Then CMT brought it back, then the movie coming out really drew me right back in like I never left and Im loving it more now then I did then.....thanks Darrel, its great that we can disagree on how we feel about the movie, but remain true fans that can discuss it nicely. We'd make Uncle Jesse proud! hahahaha......
  3. Ya know, thats a great point....not one I really thought about. That the movie whether we like it or not really put the show back in the spotlight and is keeping it there. That cant be nothing but good!!
  4. Im sorry if I offended you...I did not mean too. I did not hate the movie I just felt it deviated so much from the show thats all. I guess I have a hard time with change..LOL...sorry it was just my opinion...doesnt mean Im right.
  5. I agree with you possomonagumbush!! The opening of the doors bothered me too amongst many other things. But apparently we are both old school and wanted the movie to emulate that. I had to watch it as a complete seperate entity from the original show because it was nothing at all like the show. The movie would be a 'fun' movie if it was not named Dukes of Hazzard".....it totally degraded the show.
  6. I just had to write this to see if other old school Dukes fans who use to play Bo and Luke or Daisy when we were kids have kids who do it now? My 9 year old son who has really gotten into the show and the games (which he is playing on Playstation as we speak) is now only wanting to get into the car thru the window! He thinks its the coolest thing to do it this way because thats how the Duke boys do it. I just love it because in this day 'n' age there are so many things he could be emulating and I love that he is picking the Dukes to emulate. Although if he starts sliding across the hood of the car like we did back when we were kids, I might have to put my foot down on that one to protect the paint!! ............he is even starting to like country music and saying yeehaw! Gotta love it!
  7. OH MY GOSH DUKE FAN...I AGREE 100%...COULDN'T HAVE SAID IT BETTER MYSELF!!!!!!!!!!!
  8. WELL I GUESS IT'S MY TURN TO GIVE MY OPINION...HAHAHA...IVE READ ALOT OF CONTRASTING ONES AND IM SURE MINE IS NO DIFFERENT. I LIKED AND DISLIKED IT. WHAT I MEAN IS...IF I WAS GOING TO WATCH THIS MOVIE WITH A DIFFERENT NAME LIKE 'GOOD OLD BOYS DRIVING FAST' I WOULD SAY FUN MOVIE. LOTS OF GOOD ACTION AND CAR DRIVNG AND HUMOR. NOW IF I WATCHED IT AS THE 'DUKES OF HAZZARD', THEN I DIDNT LIKE IT. OTHER THAN THE GENERAL LEE BEING IN IT, IT HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THE ORIGINAL AT ALL. BETWEEN ALL THE TIMES THEY TOOK THE LORD'S NAME IN VAIN, THE 'POT' SMOKE POURING OUT OF THE ROOM THEN THE BARN AT THE END, SHERRIFF ROSCO BEING MEAN AND UGLY, BOSS HOGG BEING MEAN AND UGLY TOO (EVEN THOUGH I LOVE BURT REYNOLDS), BO AND LUKE BEING NOTHING LIKE THE ORIGINAL IN EVERYWAY, THEY RAN MOONSHINE ...ETC THIS LIST GOES ON. SO I GUESS WHAT IM SAYING IS THAT ITS A FUN MOVIE IF YOU WATCH IT AS A COMPLETE SEPARATE ENTITY FROM THE ORIGINAL DUKES BECAUSE THERE IS NO LIKENESS OF THE SHOW HERE. NOW I'M SURE THE YOUNGER GENERATION LOVED IT AND WILL DISAGREE WITH ME, BUT IM OLD SCHOOL DUKES AND I LIKE IT THAT WAY. IT JUST SADDENS ME THAT SOME YOUNGER PEOPLE MIGHT THINK THAT THIS IS WHAT THE DUKES WAS ALL ABOUT, AND ITS NOT......LIKE I SAID THIS IS ALL JUST MY LITTLE OLD OPINION!!!.....
  9. Nothing like a beautiful hot sensitve man who can drive a car like he does! He is like the bad boy...but hes actually a good boy! If that makes any sense!! Its all good darlin'....
  10. I agree ladies....totally hot, sweet, macho and sensitive! Thats the kind of man to have!!
  11. No offense to the actors who played Coy and Vance, but it was not the same. I wont even watch the episodes they are in. I have tried I swear, but its like watching two men trying to be two other men. Completely copying them and not doing a good job at it. I mean alot of you posters are right, it was not thier fault at all, they were just doing what they were told. All I can say is Thank God they came back. I wish the show would have gone on for a few more seasons too, but the studios wanted to do stuff with miniatures and alot of hooey and it started to go down hill. Im so glad we have what we do though, its great!!!

  13. I find I have great dreams if I watch the Dukes right before bed. Its usually always a guarenteed solution. The dreams usually consist of me hanging out with them like Im right in the show, riding with them in the General Lee and doing all the stuff ya see on the screen. If I get really lucky, there might be a kiss or two as well!! LOL.....in my dreams!!
  14. the best one was of course the first one....as a matter of fact I just rented it tonight to watch cause its been a long time since Ive seen it other than on tv. What a great flick!! Almost as good as the Dukes of Hazzard show!!
  15. My son and I would love to go next year...we could not afford it this year. We live in Bangor Maine so it would be quite the trek and I have no idea how much it would cost to fly and then hotels...bla bla bla...how long a drive is Maine to Tenn?? Or will it be somewhere esle next year? Anyway...I just gotta be there!! If nothing else...te meet that beautiful Bo!!!
