Planned Chat

For all of you planning on going to the chat tonight at 5pm Pacific, I probably won’t be there. Our dog Sadie is at the vet tonight getting x-rays and being observed for a leg injury. We’ll be going back to get her around the time when the chat starts and probably sitting with her most of the night. I hope all of you that are there have a good time.

Daisy’s Cars

Our Fanfiction page has been updated!

A lot of you have emailed asking about DukesFest 2005. Your best source for all the information for DukesFest and Dukes of Hazzard events is the home of DukesFest itself…Cooter’s Place! As of right now tho’ we know this: DUKESFEST 2005 will be June 4th & 5th at The Bristol Motor Speedway and Dragway in Bristol TN. So mark your calendars and check Cooter’s Place regularly for updates on special events and special guests!

Also, several of you have noticed while watching the second season DVD, that it seems like the episodes are out of order, giving that Daisy has her yellow Roadrunner in one episode, then her Jeep, then her Roadrunner again (and it goes off the cliff) then her Jeep again and then the Roadrunner again! LOL. Let’s see if MaryAnne can explain…

Waaall, it goes like this ya see: The order in which shows were filmed and in which order they aired is often different for a lot of tv shows. This could be because of a lot things, the biggest of which is availability of guest stars (ie, Loretta Lynn. I’m sure they had to work around her schedule to film the episode “Find Loretta Lynn”.) It also could be holding back episodes if one episode might be better suited for something such as Sweeps Week (such as “Find Loretta Lynn”) or for going head to head with some other program or movie of the week.

If it weren’t for Daisy’s change of vehicles and Rosco’s departure for five episodes, the seemingly out of order episodes wouldn’t seem so out of order. LOL.

So, yes the episodes are out of order in terms of being filmed, but are not out of order in terms of when they aired. So, no there is no error with your DVD set! =)

Filming Wraps On Dukes Movie

Hi folks! MaryAnne here with this week’s top Dukes headlines….

First Dukes filming news….this piece is a bit dated as the filming has now wrapped but Cinema Confidential visited the set of the Dukes and spoke with Bill Gerber, the producer of the movie. A worthwhile read Dukes fans!

Second…as mentioned above, filming as wrapped on the Dukes of Hazzard. Jessica Simpson has left the state (to some folks relief apparently….)

The jet engines of Jessica’s Lear (I’m assuming she has a Lear) were barely cooled down when Rollingstone.com reported she would be joining with Willie Nelson on a duet for the Dukes sountrack (HNet Editorial: THIS should be interesting). However, they have not selected a song yet.

Here’s one final story on the filming of the Dukes. Folks, this is what they mean by being in the right place at the right time. Patrick White landed a one line shot in the Dukes film. (Link to story no longer works.) (HNet Editorial: We hope his part isn’t cut! Read on to find out why.)

Meanwhile, Tom Wopat is singing his little heart out in the “Over the Rainbow” concert series showcasing the songs of Harold Arlen.  As a listener of 30s/40s music, a lot of the titles I recognize. This stuff is a far cry from the “Where or Where Are You Tonight?” song from Hee Haw. =)

Don’t forget folks, we’re less than two weeks way from D-Day! February 25th, the Dukes of Hazzard returns to television on CMT! =) Make sure you check out the press release below if you haven’t already. Or maybe ya just wanna read it again. Khee!

We miss you, Boss

It was 11 years ago today that we lost Sorrell Booke, forever known to Dukes of Hazzard fans as Boss Hogg. We miss you, Boss!

The Dukes of Hazzard Debuts on CMT

First the REALLY BIG NEWS…..(actually this a repeat of the press release from January, but it’s worth mentioning again!)

It’s Short-Shorts, Fast Cars and Country Stars on CMT With the Return of ‘THE DUKES OF HAZZARD’ Series

    UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., Jan. 14 /PRNewswire/ — In 1979 the unmistakable voice of music legend Waylon Jennings introduced America, in both theme song and show narration, to Bo, Luke, and Daisy Duke, and a new pop culture phenomenon exploded onto TV sets across the nation.  CMT brings back THE DUKES OF HAZZARD for a whole new generation of Dukes fans and long-time devotees beginning with an all-Dukes weekend Friday, Feb. 25 through Sunday, Feb. 27 featuring the premiere of CMT INSIDE FAME: THE DUKES OF HAZZARD and CMT’s re-launch of the hit series.

    It’s the series that made short-shorts, fast cars and CB radios cool as THE DUKES OF HAZZARD became a mainstay in American homes and hearts for seven wildly successful seasons. Modern day Robin Hoods – cousins Bo, Luke, and Daisy Duke along with their Uncle Jesse – fought the corrupt political system in Hazzard County. In addition to Jennings’ No. 1 hit song “Theme From The Dukes of Hazzard (Good Ol’ Boys)” and his narration of each episode, the series was packed with guest appearances by country stars including Loretta Lynn, the Oak Ridge Boys, Tammy Wynette, Buck Owens, Dottie West, and many more.

    CMT explores the cultural impact of the Dukes of Hazzard phenomenon in a new episode of CMT INSIDE FAME, featuring new interviews with original stars John Schneider (Bo Duke), Tom Wopat (Luke Duke), Catherine Bach (Daisy Duke), James Best (Rosco P. Coltrane) and guest stars, crew members, fans and critics who discuss the show’s remarkable success. CMT INSIDE FAME, premiering Friday, Feb. 25 at 8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT,* offers a fond and funny look back on THE DUKES OF HAZZARD.

    Hazzard County hero John Schneider discusses the evergreen success of the show in CMT INSIDE FAME.  “The world stopped when the Dukes of Hazzard was on,” Schneider says.  “And in a day and age when we have 800 channels and have all these different things to watch, it still seems like the world stops when the ‘Dukes of Hazzard’ comes on.  There is something so welcoming about the Dukes.”

    Immediately following CMT INSIDE FAME, CMT kicks-off a weekend marathon of Dukes episodes beginning at 9:00 PM, ET/PT.* Starting with the series’ very first episode, CMT takes viewers through the speed traps and pitfalls of the Dukes’ adventures with the famed car, the General Lee.  THE DUKES OF HAZZARD, licensed to CMT by Warner Bros. Domestic Cable Distribution, begins in its regular weeknight timeslot of 7:00-8:00 PM, ET/PT (repeats at 11:00 PM-12:00 Midnight) starting Monday, Feb. 28.

In other news….

Now, we’re three days after the Superbowl and there’s a lot of grumbling out there. Somebody lied to us. There was NO Dukes movie trailer shown during the Superbowl. How can it be that various sites and news outlets have managed to equate themselves with election day exit polling by telling us the Dukes trailer would be shown and it wasn’t? Hmmmm…..

Folks, we’re gonna try and find out.

In the meantime, all the December and January news items have been moved to the archive. =)
