  1. It is a good picture of Tom Wopat. I want to say about 7-9 years ago both he and John Schneider played at a concert at a casino in Gree Bay, WI. A few people brought General Lee's along and I believe Sonny Schrorer was on hand as well. It is good to see a Dukes "re-surgence" over the last 8-10 years. I think a big "Thank You" has to go out to the former Country Music Television (CMT) who began running Dukes re-runs several years back. The Dukes re-runs became some of CMT's highest rated shows and probably helpled lead to some bigger and better things today!
  2. I live in Wisconsin and read in an interview that Tom Wopat grew up in a town called Lodi, WI (which is outside of Madison). A friend and I visited about 9-1o years back. The town is very small and literally had the typical "one stoplight". We stopped at the local cafe/dinner and the waitress did not have a very favorable opinion of him. She more or less said he was a womanizer who had several different kids w/ different women (not sure if this is true or not). We stopped at the local library and were able to see high school yearbooks of Wopat who appeared to be very active in school (acting, sports, etc) yet the town had not historical marker or mention of him. You would think a sign that said something to the effect of "Lodi, Wisconsin Home of Tom Wopat" but nothing. The coolest part was we stopped out at the small farmhouse where Tom Wopat grew up and were even able to meet this brother! They resembed each other closely (although the brother had glasses). My friend and I left are name and address and asked if Tom could send us some items, but didn't hear back.
  3. Popozezo, How was the country singer a d1ck? What did he do?
  4. Hi Dixie Lee, Thanks for the background. I think I did see that show, with Roscoe feeling distraught that he made Boss disappear. Thanks for the recap!
  5. Hi, Would anyone be so kind as to give a summary of that last episode? What was the reunion between Boss Hogg and Roscoe all about? (someone mentioned the emotion between them) what was that all about? also why was it called opening night at the boar's nest? was it re-opened or something? thanks,
  6. Hi Mrs. Luke Duke, Thank you VERY much for taking the time to send me all of these cool links for the autographs. Thanks!
  7. more or less boycotting the Dukes. On the DVD only Daisy and Bo narrate the "behind the scenes" commentary on the first episode. Secondly, when they have the reunion with roscoe, enos, cletidus, daisy, bo, etc Tom Wopat is no where to be found. Is he still mad about the contract dispute and that some of the episodes got kinda cheesy over the years?
  8. 1) Do you know the various stars of DOH websites? I thought I found one for Tom Wopat, but whenever I clicked on the links it talked about the site being under construction 2) When is Dukes Fest and where? Thanks,
  9. I agree with you about whomever it was/is flipping out over it. I like how before stars hit it big, they are humble. Then once some of them cash in they turn into pampered and entitled people who have no use for certain things. More or less I made my millions now leave me the heck alone. But say It was Dolly and say she was on the cusp of hitting it big, wouldn't she have wanted the attention or mention of her name on a TV show to help draw interest/intrigue?? Just goes to how that $$ does change certain people.
  10. Does anyone have a mailing address where a person can get autographs of James Best (Roscoe), Tom Wopat, Catherine Bach, etc. I was able to get John Schneider's autograph a coulple of years back. I also stopped by Tom Wopat's town in Lodi, WI and meet his brother and saw the farm/house that Tom grew up on. I have never gotten his autograph though. I would rather mail in for their autograph's than take a chance of paying on eBay and maybe not even have it be real. Any ideas, Thank,
  11. Hi, Thanks for the responses. I thought it might be Dolly Parton as well, since I believe in the 1st episode they talk about Daisy idolizing/wanting to be Dolly Parton. I thought they mention Dolly's name in other episodes, but perhaps they cracked down on it after the first show. Thanks~!
  12. Hi All, I bought seasons 1 and 2 on DVD. While watching Season 1 and Daisy's Song, Daisy is talking to the sleazy record executive about how her voice sounds like two country singers. The second singer's name that is spoken comes out as "Loretta Lynn", but the characters lips when speaking don't seem to indicate the words "Loretta Lynn". Does someone know what happened? Did the Dukes have to change the name as the original person did not want their name mentiioned? Thanks,
