  • Should have stayed in Hazzard

    Enos was an attempt by CBS to strike gold a second time by spinning off a supporting character from its hugely popular and top-rated Dukes of Hazzard. I think the network actually wanted Enos to succeed. The supporting cast was decent, the scripts were at least on par with those of Dukes, and James Best and Cathy Bach from the parent show made guest appearances. Unfortunately, the show was hampered by a poor concept and the reluctance of its star, Sonny Shroyer. Shroyer didn't believe in the project from the outset and was reluctant to do the series. He only agreed to do it if the network put it in his contract that he could return to Dukes in event that the series failed. It turned out that Shroyer's reluctance was prophetic. Enos Strate was a great supporting character on Dukes but was unable to carry the lead in his own series. Enos bit the dust after only 17 episodes and no one really mourned its demise. The character went back to Dukes of Hazzard where he belonged and the show went to the great TV scrap heap in the sky.
