    Roth Potter reacted to RogerDuke in NASCAR news   
    Back on subject here....I see my favorite....Chase Elliott won at Dover in overtime on Sunday. This means he has an automatic berth into the next round. His victory was partly the result of two wrecks at the end.

    I'm not sure I'd say they are my favorites but I love dirt bikes enough that I made a list of all the episodes that features them.....Road Pirates.....Along Came a Duke (with Jeb)....The Fugitive (lots of all kinds of motorcycles on this one)....A Boy's Best Friend....Coy vs Vance.....Twin Trouble has 3-wheelers. I remember when they first came out. Eventually they were determined to be too dangerous so 4-wheelers took over but I never warmed up to either. Dirt bikes can go so many more places since they're skinnier and can fit between trees and other obstacles better....and they're lighter in general.

    Roth Potter reacted to RogerDuke in Cleveland   
    I really did LOL when you showed me where the missing Z was Hoss. In fact I even did a little ROFL. The Cleveland thing is certainly a small mistake compared to the Warner Brothers one.

    I think I've found your missing "Z", Roger. I saw this sign yesterday and it made me smile. It's good to see that a US TV show from nearly 40 ago is still having an adverse effect on a foreign nation's literacy .



    BTW. I may have mentioned this before, but Warner Bros don't even spell the show's name correctly on the side of the sound stages in Burbank. Check out the entry under "TELEVISION".

    Thanks so much for posting this Hoss. I am right behind Big Ed Little's head. If that would have been Emma Tisdale there instead you would have seen me.

    Roth Potter reacted to HossC in RIP Burt Reynolds   
    Since Burt's death, I've read and heard a few discussions in the media about how he turned down several roles that other actors made iconic, and also how he failed to live up to the acting promise shown in 'Deliverance' ('Boogie Nights' notwithstanding). I've also seen here and elsewhere, people digging out DVDs like 'Smokey and the Bandit' to watch in remembrance. I can't think of many actors whose death would make me immediately re-watch one of their movies, so maybe his choices weren't that bad after all. Burt held a special, joyous place in our collective memories that will never be attained by more critically acclaimed actors.

    Burt Reynolds passed away today. He and Jimmie were close. I still remember at Jimmie's 75th birthday, he was surprised by a video birthday message from Burt (and Paul Newman too). It was so thoughtful and great. He'll be missed.

    Roth Potter reacted to RogerDuke in End Credits Scene   
    I don't know why I bother double checking Hoss's responses because he's never wrong and this was no exception. Seeing that circular chase was always bittersweet. It meant that I had just seen another great episode and that was sweet. But I hated seeing the credits because it meant I had to wait another week to see the Dukes again. I lived for Friday night back then. We sure hope to hear more from you RustyNail.

    It's from the scene immediately after the opening credits in 'Money to Burn' in season 1, although they only go around the tree once in the episode.

    August 25 Is getting close so I'm getting pumped up. It will be really cool to see Sonny just 3 days before his birthday. Before I got older and Uncle Jesse became my favorite character Enos was.

    Roth Potter reacted to HossC in Calling ALL Cooters and Duke cousins!   
    I'm no mechanic, and always turn to Google to find out if a problem is easy enough to fix myself, or if I need to visit my equivalent of Cooter!

    I found a thread with a similar-sounding problem here. The fuel pressure regulator is mentioned as a possibility.

    Actually, the car is not orange but is red oxide primer. This is Rich Sephton (left) and AJ Thrasher (right) and they are in the process of building the Wheelstander General Lee, which was planned to be used in the very last episode of the Dukes. The producers did not like the fact that you could see a supercharged 440 behind the driver, so they canned the whole idea of using the car and it was never on the Dukes. Rich Sephton purchased the car from WB shortly after the Dukes were finished. Then goes the story of Rich losing the car in a nasty divorce, got it back, lost it again, and so on. AJ Thrasher went on to build roll cages and special effects parts for the 2005 Dukes movie and is now semi-retired.

    Roth Potter reacted to dukefan1 in Georgia filming locations   
    Took the family to georgia to see the filming locations and it was the 2nd time I've been there. I noticed on the courthouse sidewalk they had pavers that said in the heat of the night, footloose, and vampire diaries but wasn't one for the dukes of hazzard. Just disappoints me that they dont recognize how special and popular the show was

    Roth Potter reacted to RogerDuke in Baby Waylon   
    A co-worker of my wife's had a baby boy a few days ago. They didn't do the test to see if it was going to be a boy or girl. They had an agreement that the father would name a boy and she would name it if it was a girl. It was a boy. He is a Waylon fan and loves the name so there is now a new Waylon in this 'ol world. I talked to the father a couple weeks ago (before Waylon was born) and told him I was hoping for a Waylon. Stuff like this makes this 'ol Duke fan smile!

    Wow, what a hard hit.  The car held up better than I'd expect, really.   Those tiny numbers on the General's door make me scrunch my nose a bit.

    Roth Potter reacted to Wakko in New here, but not to the community   
    It'd be hard to place a favorite character, as each one has their own attributes.  As a dad, I always want to be as steadfast and honorable as Jesse, and as a law-man, as honest and forgiving as Enos.  As a man thrust kicking and screaming into middle age, as fun and carefree as Bo, but as loyal and responsible as Luke.  Rosco, despite his flaws, had diehard loyalty to his little fat buddy, and doesn't everyone want to be as crazy as Cooter and desired as Daisy?  As far as Boss, I like to focus on Sorrell himself, as an incredibly intelligent and educated man, and a fantastic actor. 
    I'm partial to the Georgia episodes and Lees, but don't really have a favorite episode.  I'd have to watch them all again to reassess.  I have all the seasons, of course, but don't have much time these days with 12 hour shifts and a little man in the other room.    I went to Dukesfest '05 and met most of the stars, except Jimmy Best, unfortunately.  I have photos and autographs, including Jimmy's.  Never met Coy or Vance.  Like many of you, I've been watching the Dukes since I was kneehigh to a grasshopper, and I told my mom when I was 7 that I wanted a Charger.  Finally got it at 30 or so. 
    I used to drive a '67 Deville convertible, white of course, tag BAWS HOG.  I have a '78 Fury but it's now in pretty sad shape, and my once gorgeous '69 RT clone has seen better days.  All my old pics are on Photobucket, and I don't have time to go through them right now.  Just got the small fry down to sleep and have chores to do before the sandman comes and kicks me in the face.

    Roth Potter reacted to HossC in Videos with Peggy Rea   
    I happened upon the video below yesterday while looking for something completely unrelated to Dukes. It's an episode of the Sally Field series 'Gidget' from 1966.
     

    As I was watching, a familiar face appeared. Peggy's only in it for about 20 seconds (4:22-4:42), and she's rather rudely credited simply as "Fat Lady".

    What's funny (to me) is that casual observers of a General sometimes comment that the General isn't correct because it has the flags in the back or the "wrong" pushbar.  The wide bar and lack of crossed flags out back are what most people think are correct, when of course, both are.  I'm a narrow fan, myself.
