Opening Night at the Boar's Nest......season 7 

Lulu Hogg is in charge of the annual charity talent show. Bo, Luke and Daisy are driving down the road and practicing singing "Fox on the Run" while Cotrano the Great is practicing his magic act with his assistant Flasho. Meanwhile, Floyd Malone just got out of the state prison after spending three years there when Boss testified against him in a hijacking case. His brother Bubba picked him up in a stolen car and let Floyd drive and the brothers are planning revenge on Boss. The Duke boys got run off the road by Floyd but declined a fight after seeing that he was 7 foot, 3 inches tall. Moments later Floyd almost runs Boss over in town but the General Lee got in the way. The boys chased the Malones but they got away. Boss didn't want to be Rosco's assistant for the show because he had a big real estate deal to close but Lulu said she'd stop cooking for him if he didn't. The Dukes started the show by singing, then Cotrano the Great took the stage with his assistant JD HoggO the Round. He put Boss in a booth and made him disappear. Boss snuck through a trap door in the floor and snuck off to his real estate deal but was quickly gagged and kidnapped by the Malones. Rosco got upset when he couldn't make Boss reappear. Luke figured out who took Boss by noticing the massive footprints. The boys told Lulu and Rosco while Enos was singing, humming and whistling. Rosco didn't believe them but Lulu did and stopped the whole show. The bad guys went atop a cliff but changed their minds about killing him and decided to ask for a million dollars in ransom instead. Bubba called Lulu with instructions so Jesse drove the Cadillac with Lulu and threw a bag of money out while driving down a dirt road. Bo and Luke snuck into the bushes after hanging on the side of the car. The boys snuck in the back of Bubba's newly stolen pick-up truck when he was picking the bag up and went to the hideout where Boss and Floyd were. The boys were overpowered and Floyd shot Boss and the brothers got away. Thankfully, Boss got shot in his thick credit cards and the bullet didn't get through. Daisy showed up with the General and the 3 Dukes and Boss caught the Malones and handcuffed them. The Hazzard folks then went back to the Boar's Nest. They looked through a window and saw Rosco, still frantic and upset. Boss decided to sneak through the trap door and into the booth. The others walked in and encouraged an emotional Coltrano the Great to try again, JD HoggO the Round reappeared. The series ended with a group hug with the 4 Dukes, 2 Hoggs, Enos, Rosco and Cooter. 

-- Kevin Peter Hall (1955-1991) played Floyd. He really was 7' 3" tall. He played Bigfoot in the TV series Harry and the Hendersons and was also the Predator in the Swartzenegger movie. 

-- The General had a great suspension system. 7 years of jumps and for some reason the writers decided that this last one should be the first one where a jump ever damaged it. 

-- I love the scene on stage where the 4 Dukes sang. The boys played guitars. Jesse played the moonshine jug. Cooter played the washboard. 

Cousin Roger I love it like always! :) But I'm sad now cuz the show is over. :(

ROFL....If it helps, have her sign up for the HazzardNet. That way every time you're watching an episode she can log in and yell at me. That way we're all happy. You're happy because you're watching D

My last post here, made me think, THAT'S the life I would love to have. A simple life, small town, work the farm and grow most of your food and then sell stuff you raise or grow, to buy the rest. This

'Opening Night at the Boar's Nest' was written and directed by John Schneider - his first credit in each category for the show and his career.

Thanks for writing these reviews, Roger. It's been a while since I've seen some of the later episodes, so these have acted as good reminders. It's also great to get a different viewpoint and add some background.

I wonder if John had any other story ideas that never got made. Maybe they got included in his later works such as "Collier & Co."

Definitely too much fun to call it work. I am considering redoing season one.....maybe after the holidays. I guess I can still do that, right Hoss? I'd just hit edit and erase everything and then restart from a blank page?  Have we always been able to edit old posts? For some reason I thought we couldn't edit a post after it had reached a certain age.

On the old forum there used to be a 10 minute window to edit posts. With the current setup I think you can go back anytime and edit old posts, but that may be an ability only open to people with a certain number of posts or who've been granted permission - I'm really not sure how it works, but I'm pretty sure that you can do it. Now that I'm a moderator, I can edit everyone's posts, so it's difficult for me to try it out!

If you feel the need to redo season 1, go ahead. It makes more sense to have the episodes in order, but people who've already read your original reviews may miss your updates, so maybe you could put a post at the end when you've completed them. I don't remember there being anything wrong with your season 1 reviews, but now you've reached the end, you probably see the first ones differently. :)

If I edit a post that is months old will if stay in the same place or will it move up to present time?

I'm not sure if I will mess with season one. I was just thinking of making it consistent since my reviews evolved a bit.....plus I'm always looking for reasons to watch episodes!

I don't remember the character Floyd....who was he?

He was the 7 foot 3 inch tall guy on Opening Night at the Boar's Nest who kidnapped Boss to get revenge. His real name was Kevin Peter Hall. He was in the Bigfoot suit on the TV show Harry and the Hendersons and was the Predator in the Arnold Swartzenegger movie.

If you edit a post it will stay in the same place. It won't appear in the list of recent activity, and the only way we'll know that it's edited (unless you tell us) is the "Edited [Date] by RogerDuke" line at the end.

Hmm, thanks Hoss. I'm not sure what I'm going to do. I might not do anything but I just think the season one episodes should be more like the rest of them. I do appreciate the opinions of everybody else though. I am not thinking in terms of people missing the editing because they are not in the recent activity listing. I'm just thinking of future (and current) users looking things up as a reference and my later reviews provided more information than the earlier ones. I am planning on rereading them all myself someday soon. Also, if you ever flip through them Hoss and want to clean them up a little, feel free to do so. I know how good you are with that stuff and I certainly trust you. I'm sure you noticed that the toughest thing I had to figure out is where to put, commas, or, none, at all.

This is the way they write in the town I live in. I tell the Yankees ....don't judge the South by this town. If this was like the rest of the South, you and your preconceived ideas about us would be right!  One of the jobs I got with my big fine college education, was as a janitor at the local middle school. The vice principal, with a masters degree in Sociology,  told me to put up this sign , " Fall Registeration will be......."

I said, you want me to put this up just like you wrote it? She says, yes, why not? I said it's Registration, the noun, NOT register ( ation???) which is a verb! I asked her, you didn't major in English did you? LOL! :)

I used to work in a building which also housed a crèche and an after-schools club for older children. Someone put up signs in the bathrooms about not using "alot of toilet paper". I took them down and replaced them with signs about not using "a lot of toilet paper". About half the people who noticed me changing them couldn't see anything wrong with the original signs! I pointed out that that was exactly the reason I was changing them, so that the kids didn't get the wrong spelling reinforced in their minds.

Similar to the "Registeration" story, a local upmarket hotel had "Enterance 100m" on its sign for months a couple of years ago. They eventually changed it.
