Don Surber gives the real scoop beside the war on "Dukes of Hazzard."
Beneath all the veneer of Good Old Boys running around is a protest of a corrupt government, and the dangerous advocacy of self-reliance. The government took their guns. The Dukes used compound bows, baby.
Dukes began as a drive-in movie, "Moonrunners," based on the true adventures of 1950s moonshiner Jerry Rushing. Waylon Jennings narrated both the movie and the TV series. The concepts are the same. An uncle, bow-hunting cousins in fast cars, corrupt politicians, eye candy, and chase scenes.
When you don't show Dukes of Hazzard, the modern-day Boss Hogg wins.
