Recommended Posts

Although I never cared for the show nor did I care for the movie,the real murderous situation that has recently  happen and the Old t.v. show Dukes of Hazard did not cause it .I am trying not to be political ,but, we are dealing with a popular TV show .Time Warner has withdrew the t.v. from t.v. land in the wake of the situation that happen .The fact is that the  show did not cause it .Why are they withdrawing it?.Since Thomas Edison it's been films  strictly  for profit and not art first fans of entertainment first then profit second The scissors or play heavily with the profit  of Hollywood .The idea was that no movie would chase any member of the audience away ,so they would not loose customers .This is typical of the greed and selfishness  of the business.In the 1920's and 30' Hollywood exploited the conservative family values in order to increase profit .Then by the time the Vietnam war came along they exploited  the moderate liberal family values.Today they are exploiting phony liberal values for profit .This is unethical and wrong .In defense of the dukes of hazard I want to say that time Warner is just exploiting  the situation to increase their profit.I am fearful that they might self ban all of our classic film that reflect our  racism  of our past  .like the Jazz singer or the Eddie cantor films,due  to black face,,Our anti Nazi film Produced in Hollywood during the war ,due to the uniforms and symbols, may be even the great dictator. Worst no more playing of gone with the wind.  I am a fan of bad film history  as much as good  film history.If this get bad i'll have to dump t,c.m Worst as you got black market prints of sing of the south and Porgy and Bess .Gone with the wind and other film reflecting our prejudice of the past could go black market too.This is because Hollywood is so addicted to profit that they will denies any facts of life that the will slow it down.This is wrong What Hollywood is done is wrong .They need to be stopped .Bring back the dukes of hazard  on t.v. land Well I'm never going to watch that station again.Hollywood needs to reform and start putting all fans of entertainment  first art first and profit second .Business regulation against their greed and selfishness  and exploiting situation like what happen for profit needs to be enforced

T.W. simply made a choice;  that more fans would be pleased by them pulling the show,  than displeased.   Of course their action was dictated by profits,  this being America and all.

Paragraph (from the Ancient Greek paragraphos, "to write beside" or "written beside") -- a self-contained unit of a discourse in writing dealing with a particular point or idea. A paragraph consists of one or more sentences. Though not required by the syntax of any language, paragraphs are usually an expected part of formal writing, used to organize longer prose.

No, don't bring back DUKES OF HAZZARD to TVLand.

 

Instead, bring back good shows to TVLand and Nick At Nite like THE MARY TYLER MOORE SHOW, I LOVE LUCY and of course BEWITCHED. 

 

This would be more fitting, since now it's reality.  :blink:

When THE DUKES OF HAZZARD was originally on the air, my two older sons watched it.  It droned on in the background, and I paid very little attention to it.  Recently, I discovered the show running on CMT.  What caught my attention, was that the print was very high def-looking, and the image filled my widescreen television.  I was impressed by how it look, but while watching it, I found myself laughing out loud at the ridiculousness of it.  That, and how much the cast seemed to really be enjoying what they were doing.  I became a fan!

 

America has become an asylum, run by victimized inmates.

Profit has always been the driving force behind "Hollywood."

 

I don't forsee "Hollywood" ever abandoning the capitalist model in favor of the socialist model that you are proposing.

They are all being carried on other networks, some on more than one.

America has ALWAYS been "an asylum", as in...

 

1583f10fbb39f50d5741035fc2e17d07.jpg

 

...and was based on the concept of it being "an asylum of victimized people" from all around this ol' world. And, some make good and some make bad in this great country of ours and once they get here.

 

(...and from my perspective, those who "make good" compared to those who "make bad" is just about at the same rate as it ALWAYS was)

About time!

 

I guess some people prefer the place is run by storm troopers.   This was a private company making a decision about the TV shows they schedule.     How can any libertarian leaning conservative be against that.    Now if the government was to ban the show or similar ones or movies,  I would be the first in line to protest that.

This is reflected in "Gangs of New York".  It's an OLD issue, people seeking a better life and those against..  Seems to be the constant in the universe.   (well the 5 Points was an insane asylum) ;)

James L. Pettigru, former SC attorney general,  at the time of SC's secession stated "South Carolina is too small for a republic and too large for an insane asylum." 

No point, just thoght I would throw it out as humor.

Yes, and back then, people were too busy and preoccupied by far more important things, than inflaming something as benign as THE DUKES OF HAZZARD.
