The Dukes of Hazzard Season Five

The Duke cousins, Vance and Coy, come to Hazzard to embark on a new series of adventures, while Bo and Luke race the NASCAR circuit. The Duke family is back for more down-home adventure in The Dukes of Hazzard season five.

The fun continues with Coy and Vance until the return of Bo and Luke later in the series.: The Complete Fifth Season, on DVD in this 8-disc, 22 episode collector's set.

Season Five

The Dukes of Hazzard: The Complete season five marks the ignominious year in which (gasp) Dukes mainstays Bo (John Schneider) and Luke (Tom Wopat) Duke took a hiatus from the series, the result of a contract feud between the two stars and the show's producers. That disagreement proved considerable: Schneider and Wopat stayed off Dukes for 18 of the season's 22 episodes. But while their absence puts a dent in the ongoing Dukes zaniness, replacement cousins Coy (Byron Cherry) and Vance (Christopher Mayer) Duke do an adequate job of filling the seats of the General Lee. The new boys are also on to the wily ways of Boss Hogg (Sorrell Booke), who seems to be ratcheting up his brand of felonious mayhem, going so far as to rob banks and jewelry stores, swindle landowners, incite kidnapping, and plot payroll heists. Of course, he also spends half his time still trying to frame the Dukes for one thing or another, including feisty cousin Daisy (Catherine Bach) and grizzled Uncle Jesse (Denver Pyle)--Boss Hogg's former moonshine partner. And, yes, he's more intent than ever on grabbing the Dukes' property, along with everything else.

A familiar face returns in the fifth season: Deputy Enos Strate (Sonny Shroyer), gone from the series since 1980 but now rejoining the burlesque that is the office of Sheriff Roscoe P. Coltrane (James Best) and his goofy underling, Deputy Cletus Hogg (Rick Hurst). Season highlights include "The Revenge of Hughie Hogg," in which Boss Hogg's ever-scheming nephew (Jeff Altman) makes a return appearance, this time with his eye on defeating Roscoe in the latter's re-election bid for top lawman. (Hughie being Hughie, he blackmails his uncle into supporting his run.) "Ding, Dong, the Boss Is Dead" finds Coy and Vance actually helping Boss Hogg escape an old moonshine runner's certain revenge by staging their diminutive nemesis' funeral. "Comrade Duke" concerns a Russian gymnast who seeks asylum at the Dukes' farm. Bo and Luke return in time for a few adventures, capping the season with "Daisy's Shotgun Wedding," in which the overprotected beauty strikes out on her own and is snatched away by a moonshiner's son, who wants to marry her. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars The Fifth Season is worthy!, December 4, 2005
By DukesFan01

This review is from: The Dukes of Hazzard - The Complete Fifth Season (DVD)
Yes, 5 stars. There has simply never been another show on television like THE DUKES OF HAZZARD...and I doubt we will ever see something in its style again. But just because John Schneider and Tom Wopat ("Bo and Luke Duke") are absent on just about every episode of this season, doesn't mean that I will wait longer to purchase it.

In hindsight, the introduction of "Coy and Vance Duke" into the storyline wasn't the great disaster it was in 1982. Schneider and Wopat walk off the show to strike over issues related to merchandise royalties, and the show clamors to hire two new individuals to fill the huge gap. Granted, the replacement cousins were no Bo and Luke, but hey, the character of Coy (played by Byron Cherry) was quite likeable and down-home like, and the change in roles allowed the show to experiment a little.

Rick Hurst ("Deputy Cletus") stayed on the show as Sonny Shroyer ("Deputy Enos") returns from his failed spin-off series, and it's great that we have both deputies on several of this season's early shows until Hurst finally departs. Secondly, the comedic talents of "Boss Hogg" (Sorrell Booke) and "Sheriff Rosco" (James Best) are second to none in the fifth season, as the two really stepped it up to ease the absence of Schneider and Wopat. The two really carry the weight of the season, and they do it hillariously!

Not only that, but one of the best episodes of the show's entire run, "Witness: Jesse Duke", shows the great talent of Denver Pyle ("Uncle Jesse"), and the chemistry of the "new Dukes" finally gels within the storyline and with the rest of the cast, only to be gone in the next episode.

Otherwise, the stories found in this season are very good, and afterall, Bo and Luke do return towards the end. In fact, another unique element here is the episode "Welcome Back, Bo & Luke", which features Bo, Luke, Coy and Vance on screen all together in this episode only.

A big thanks to Warner Brothers for continuing to release THE DUKES OF HAZZARD sets on DVD. Another thanks to Warner for making these single-sided discs (at an unbeatable price). Now if Warner would only re-release the first 3 seasons with the single-sided configuration!

5.0 out of 5 stars ALL of the "Good Ol' Boys" Are Worth Owning, Especially at THIS Price Level!, September 24, 2005

This review is from: The Dukes of Hazzard - The Complete Fifth Season (DVD)
Warner Bros. continues to do a GREAT job with these "The Dukes of Hazzard" season box sets. Each time the content and extras are great, the price point is VERY reasonable (especially now that the sets consist of 8-9 single-sided discs each) and the release schedule is surprisingly swift! As I'm sure all of you know, this is the season where Bo and Luke were temporarily replaced by Coy and Vance. I don't think anyone seriously thought that Warner would skip this season for fear of it being less popular for that very reason, but anyone who really was concerned about there being a gaping hole in their collection can now lay those fears to rest.

I remember seeing some of these episodes first-run, and as I recall there were some good ones thrown in the lot despite the absence of Schneider and Wopat. Besides, they both returned to the show for the last few episodes of the season, so it is not totally devoid of them. Any Coy and Vance haters had best remember that, as boycotting this season will cost them a few Bo and Luke episodes.

Only two more seasons remain before we will be able to own the entire series in its' original, uncut format! That will all but render the chopped-up CMT airings obsolete.

This is the 5th installment of the Dukes Of Hazzard season series on dvd in which Bo And Luke Persue an oppurtinity of a life long dream to race the Nascar circuit (Actually a contract dispute with Warner Brothers) Enter Coy and Vance Duke to save the 5th Season from going down the toilet. I Have to admit that i'm more of a Bo And Luke fan myself but,if not for the Coy And Vance Episodes this season might have ended the running of the series.As for the Episodes they are actually pretty good and worth the purchase and would watch them several times each, The Season 5 package consists of 22 episodes on 8 dvd's with lots of extras & includes episodes #87 through #108 with Bo And Luke returning for the final 4 episodes of season 5 #105 through #108.
