A Wasted Effort
11 December 2000 | by (Chicago, USA) – See all my reviews

Sanford Arms had nothing to do with Sanford and Son, other than some new characters were now living in the Sanford house and running the apartment building next door. Teddy Wilson, who had roles on That's My Mama and Good Times, was the new owner of the house, and he stayed there with his daughter. Aunt Esther, Grady and Bubba were still around, but they were the only connection to the old show.
