    It may well be one of the most ridiculous things I've ever heard of a company doing for the sake of political correctness.


    Let's hear your description of what happened.

    Here is one people are actually bidding on. Real human people paying this price.

    The Dukes of Hazzard The Complete Seasons 1 7 DVD 2006 39 Disc Set Digipak 012569815544 | eBay
    You can just buy the whole set on Amazon for $239. What a bunch of idiots. Or you can buy the season sets for about $20-25 each, which comes out to about $160.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

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.
    Actually, they might not have tried to get laid any chance they got, but they weren't exactly virtuous. But you are right that the movie was making fun of the show more than anything. (It is interesting how the movie sort of foreshadowed the controversy over the flag, thinking back to the scene where they are driving in Atlanta.)

    I just watched the first disc of the first season today. It was one of my favorite shows growing up. I don't have a lot of memories about living in my grandparents' second house, with just my parents, me and my brother, and a baby sister (3rd child, out of eventually 6), but I do remember sitting in front of that huge box TV we had in the living room, watching DoH. I was about 3/4/5.

    Oh, and its spelled "Enos", "the oldest virgin in Hazzard county".

    Yes. I have them all (or at least had them all, I need to check because I think one of the seasons got misplaced during one of our moves).

    Potentially, I never really watched it, but if it wasn't big on total neo-confederacy and is mostly two dudes pissing off a southern sheriff, I don't think pulling it was necessary. They could resell it like Kino does to this day with Birth of a Nation. It's not as if we're begging for that film to be rebroadcast on TCM or AMC.
