A short-lived classic
5 October 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Based on who was probably the favorite on-and-off character from Sanford and Son, Grady, this show didn't fail to deliver the same laughs as Sanford and Son, if not more.

According to the show's publicity advisors, the show's lack of popularity was largely due to the little advertising provided.

The biggest difference between this and Sanford and Son, is that "Grady" is more of a lighthearted show, with fewer arguments.

However, the lack of arguments did not prove to be a downfall for the show.

The "Box Set" (TV Land's name for themed shows, usually playing 4 shows pertaining to the same subject matter, or in Grady's case, Spin-Offs) has been used to bring Grady to a modern audience (Not that it had much of an audience in the 70s)

I'd recommend viewing it when episodes air, as they rarely do, and you won't be disappointed.
