  • While detouring through Hazzard Loretta Lynn is kidnapped by 3 disgruntaled musicians who think holding her for ransom is the best plan to get their $1100 they were cheated from by some Nashville recording company.moreless

    Not my favourite episode, not much Daisy, Boss has a pretty weak plan to make money, and the female "bad guy" ain't all that cute.

    I'm not much of a Loretta Lynn fan so the song at the end coupled with Uncle Jessy's megar effort to sing along while Loretta Lynn performs at the Boars Nest to show her thanks to Boss and the Boys for helping her out of her jam is something I could have done with out.

    The 3 musicians were cheated out of some $1100 and need to get their money back, so they kid nap Loretta Lynn for ransom. Only problem is Hazzard is the wrong place to do it, Bo and Luke to the rescue. Not an over amount of action compared to other episodes, and the bad guys are to nice, ya can't really hate them.

    Loretta Lynn pretty much sucks at acting and really does not have many lines even though the episode is all about her.

    All in all 6.5 outta 10 is the best I could muster for Find Loretta Lynn.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • At the begining of this episode, Bo and Luke drive Daisy to the Boar's Nest in the General Lee. Later, they use her car to chase the tour bus. How did Daisy's car get there?

    • There is a funny situation in this episode where the kidnappers connected two police cars with a chain. In one shot the cable is connected below the bumper, and in the other shot the cable is connected to the bumper of what seems to be Enos' police car. It seems the cars bumper did not hold the chain more than 1 pull, like Rosco and Enos did. When you see the close up destroying the 2 cars, the chain is again on the bumper.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Bo: Luke, when Daisy sees this car she ain't only gonna blacken my eye but I think she's gonna pull out all my teeth.
      Luke: And gums.

    • Luke: They gotta be on this road. Bo, you better keep both eyes peeled 'cause I only got partial use of this one.
      Bo: Yeah, well, if I put any dings in Daisy's car I might not be so lucky.

    • Bo: What happened to you?
      Luke: I ran into those three that sideswiped us this morning. Last thing I remember was taking a swing at this big one. He's about the size of a Mack truck.
      Bo: What'd you hit him with, your eye?
      Luke: Oh, I hope I hurt his hand with my face.
