Review:

The seventh season of "The Dukes of Hazzard" was the last for the series. It was a bit of a come down for fans despite some enjoyable episodes. The seventh season features a nice tribute to Waylon Jennings in an episode where his traveling museum shows up and two criminals decide to steal it. Of course the Dukes come to the rescue. We also get a number of pun laden titles that show up to illustrate humor and, perhaps, just how far the show has fallen (it all depends upon how low a form of humor punning is. Personally I consider the pinnacle of depravity and debauchery). ---

 

Image & Sound: The show is presented in its full screen original presentation. Colors are nice and image quality is quite good with nice clarity. There are some issues with digital artifacts that crop up now and again (edge enhancement.no it has nothing to do with those ads about male enhancement) and aliasing (no this doesn't imply that Jennifer Garner makes a guest appearance on the show nor that it has anything to do with this series). Audio is clear enough to pick out those faux accents a mile away. Actually audio sounds fine allowing the dialogue to come through loud and clear but, more importantly, we get to hear all the tire squealing during the case sequences in absolutely stunning mono detail. ---

Special Features:

Warner has provided a couple of nice extras here. Most studios would just release this bare bones but not the studio that seems to care for just about every series they put out. We get a very nice tribute featurette on Waylon Jennings featuring his widow, Catherine Bach, Tom Wopat, John Schneider and the series creator. It's a nice tribute to the late outlaw of country music. We also get see the three stars cover the series theme and a brief "making of" featurette about this project.

Final Words:

Although it lacks any worthwhile commentary tracks the extras are nice additions to a fine looking transfer (despite some minor digital flaws). Audio comes across nice and clear and we all the original uncut episodes as they originally aired. Even though this isn't the best season of the show it has enough highlights to please fans.
