    On a quick trip through Osage County the Sheriff there pulls Bo and Luke over and brings them to the most feared Boss in the state of Georgia, Colonel Cassius Claiborne. When they see him, he says that they are sentenced to two years on the chain gang. When the people of Hazzard hear about this they try everything they can to get Boss and Rosco to do something about it since they're Bo and Luke's probabtion officers. When they go to Osage County Claiborne puts them on the chain gang as well. This was a really good episode. I always wondered what prison for Bo and Luke would be like.moreless
