  • Boss won't play fair and share the pickins the new hi-way is goona bring in with the other Boss's of neighbouring counties, so they plan a little payback for Boss Hogg, only the Duke boys are there to bail him out.moreless

    8.0
    This is one of the several episodes where the Dukes and Boss work together. They don't much like Boss, but hate the idea of Boss Sharkey running things even more, so they gotta help boss out.



    Being stubborn and greedy Boss Hogg won't share any of the take from all the hi-jacking and other low down schemes he plans from the new hi-way running through Hazzard. Only thing is the other Boss's of the neighbouring counties feel cheated ot of their share since the hi-way only runs through Hazzard



    Boss Hogg fears for his life and hides out at the Duke farm



    Using a mic and video camera the Duke boys record the other Boss's talking about doing Boss Hogg in and then running Hazzard them selves. They have to get the tape to Capitol City so the police can arrest the other Boss's.



    Cletus is gone, said to be on Vacation but really replaced by Enos who has returned from the LA police force.



    Cooter for what ever reason isn't in this episode. Nor do we see Rosco's dog Flash.



    Nothing really funny about this episode, the usuall Laural and Hardy slapstick between Rosco and Enos is about it.



    No cute girls playing the bad guy either in this one.



    I'm getting use to Coy and Vance and since all the other characters are staying the same it's not so bad.moreless
