“The Dukes of Hazzard” was a classic soap opera of the 80s. Everyone loved its high jinks in the form of two outlaws who make their getaways from the sheriff’s handcuffs. Today the show’s cast of stars has gathered together to celebrate its 35th reunion in memory of a show that the whole world was watching.
That car was simply unforgettable. The orange muscle car named General Lee had kids copying its antics on their dirt bikes in the streets. It’s been over three decades since the show “The Dukes of Hazzard” aired for the first time on television.
Occupying the center stage of the series were two supposed criminals, Bo and Luke Duke, who for most of the length of the airtime tried to flee the clutches of the law. The sheriff, Roscoe P. Coltrane, along with his dumb deputy, Enos Strate, go after the two with a vengeance.
But that is not the whole story. The two Dukes are in fact not guilty as charged. They are innocent and have been framed most of the times by the evil elements in society. And their sexy cousin, Daisy Duke, along with Uncle Jessie, help them get out of jail free.
A feature film was made a few years ago but it couldn’t reach the creativity of the original series. Jessica Simpson starred in it as Daisy Duke and it also had Johnny Knoxville playing a role in it.
The reunion will feature eight reruns of the series along with a revival of memories in the form of social banter on Facebook and Twitter. The butt-high shorts of Daisy Duke, the car chase scenes and last but not least CB radios are about to come to your screens soon thanks to this reliving of history in the making.
