  • When Bo becomes the star attraction of a stunt show, the female owner comes between the cousins...

    On the whole this was a pretty average, just-the-usual kinda storyline for the dukes. Until the end that is. Im far too young to have seen this show when it was first on in the 80s but having watched re-runs im hooked. The end of this episode was...whats the word im looking for...different and exciting (at least as exciting as the Dukes of Hazzard can be). This being the first time i had seen Carnival of Thrills i was so shocked when Bo hit Luke!! I couldnt believe it because the characters were so close, it was so unexpected. However Daisy\'s \"Bo stop it! Uncle Jesse make em\' stop! Theyre hurting each other!\" was bordering on annoying and Jesse getting out his shot gun was just funny (i dont think it was supposed to be though.
    The scene immediately after that with Jesse talking to Bo when he was leaving the farm was quite touching. I think it was the tears in Bo\'s eyes that did it and the line something to the effect of just remember i love you.
    Then it went back to same old dukes....
    So out of the two hours of the two parter there was an exciting 2 mins at the end of part one and and exciting...maybe 10 mins at the start of part two. The rest was just good old Hazzard fun.
