    Personally, I never liked the show. I always thought it was dumb, and I was in the prime demographic when it was new. That being said, it'll be interesting to see if it comes back after the dust settles over the Confederate flag issue.

    Note: This thread is regarding the pulling of the show only, not the overall flag issue in general. We already have other threads for that. Please use those threads if you want to debate that.
    Not an over reaction, but a calculated move to boost ratings.

    One of my fondest memories as a child was watching that show. Loved it so much I played Dukes of Hazard on the playground. Jumping from the jungle jim like the car was jumping over that gap in the bridge. Or jumping out of the swing set for the same reason. Or just staying in the swing speeding away from Roscoe and/or Einus(sp?). It was a great show and I still think about it at times. The ONLY time I didn't like the DoH was when they made that movie a few years ago. It imo made a mockery of the real DoH. The Duke Boys were not about getting laid every chance they got and they certainly didn't try to make love to the General Lee. Hopefully Netflix will put the episodes on one of these days so I can watch em all again.

    The show was never remotely about racism.

    Are they available on DVD? That might be an option. Maybe a better option if the PC goes too far and not even Netflix will touch it in the future. IOW, get it while you can.

    Maybe. But i don't think so. Believe it was done out of a fear of losing ratings. By getting labeled as racist if they continued broadcasting the show.

    Which is different.

    Or at least not lose ratings.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    It's one of the stupidest decisions I've seen that involves that flag.

    I personally never liked the show... then again, I don't like most tv comedies; they're usually dumb... but to yank an old rerun because of a stupid flag is totally dumb, and has nothing to do with S.C.'s internal debate about displaying a confederate battle flag in publicly-owned areas.
