    I don't have a Blu ray Player so I'm OK either way...
    But I do have DOH on VHS as well as DVD. I don't have a VHS player any more since I couldn't get it hooked up thanks to the antenna I have to have...but I have them on DVD. They are Dukes, so I can't get rid of them. LOL

    The only time I usually get is at night. I do have an interesting & even somewhat eclectic collection of shows from all decades (50s-Present), as well as tons of movies, both old & new. I usually have something to watch.

    Yeah, it was discovered that the original Dukes house was actually at some point built around a Civil War era cabin, and when the people that owned the land wanted to tear it down there was a “movement” for a while to try and stop it. Some even tried to explain that the first part of “Dukes” was filmed there...but none of it was any use. All of it was torn out, except one of the old stone chimneys. I don’t know if that’s even still there or not anymore? 
    Depending on when you were there to get those boards, most of the rest of the buildings on the property could’ve already been torn down, and so those other little houses/quarters could have already been gone. I’d post a picture of the scene I mean, but this site will never let me post photos...they always claim they’re too big.  So, you’ll probably have to watch the beginning of the episode to see what I mean.

    I figured the first filmed jump was the college one, but was shown later in the episode.

    Cuzin MonacoMan... As the Fonz Happy Days says "Exactamondo" scenes were shown out of sequence. The "actual" 1st jump is indeed the college. But not the 1st that we see. We see Elm St. 1st.

    Y'all are so smart on all the nitty gritty information. There needs to be more time in the day so I can go back and watch it again. It's been forever since I actually watched a show. *GASP*  But I loved the whole Richard Petty reference. LOL. Y'all do realize I got my love for NASCAR from the Dukes...

    On the top of my head I can't remember noticing them. We used to have the grandson of the guy who owned the house here on HazzardNet and got a lot of information from him. For awhile there it looked like they might save it as a historical landmark but of course that never happened. At least people were able to buy parts of the house after it came down. I got some boards. Ended up giving one to Sonny Shroyer and one to the Dukes museum.

    In reality I’m sure they were part of that actual farm land...perhaps real-life farm hand’s houses/sleeping quarters at one time?
    But, the original farm house used for the Dukes in the first few Georgia episodes was already abandoned when they used it for filming...so the rest of the farm & buildings probably were too. There was probably no way to get around having them in the background when they filmed the scene...we were just not supposed to care or know...just go with it, which we did!

    I don't know why but I noticed the first episodes seemed to be geared toward an older crowd and when they found out their biggest audience was a lot younger, they made adjustments. That was a great observation! I'm not sure everyone notices......

    I’m watching the 2nd episode “Daisy’s Song” at the moment. I love rewatching things that I’ve seen a ton of times, and still finding aspects I’ve never really thought about or noticed before! 
    But, at the beginning when Daisy rushes out of the farm house (the original Duke farm house) to tell the family that her song is on the radio, there’s these other houses or sheds/cabins up behind them—and/or on the same property!
    I wonder whose those were...and what purpose did they serve? The Dukes didn’t have farm hands that I know of (they couldn’t afford them). How big was the Duke farm (all this pretending Hazzard world was real )? Just fun new questions that I know probably don’t have real answers, lol!

    What I find interesting about the Pilot, is that it’s so different than the rest of the show...even some of the other real-life Georgia episodes!
    Rosco is a lot more with-it & intelligent, and even has a potty-mouth  & uses his gun! Cooter on the other hand is dumber than a box of rocks ...I like how they “smarten” him up not too far down the proverbial road. Cooter’s awesome! But, it’s like after the Pilot they decided to literally switch it. 
    Also, I’ve never really noticed or paid that much attention to this before...but tonight I realized that the first place Bo & Luke install the slot machines has these gaudy, grotesque looking purple posts/poles—what was up with that??   Lol!

    He was actually going to do that, but NASCAR told him that wasn't allowed. Though he may have fixed it so he could...I can't remember the outcome now.
