Storyline

In this sequel to the hugely successful "Sanford and Son", this show picks up where the original show left off. Lamont has moved away to work on the Alaska pipeline, leaving Fred alone to run the junkyard by himself. Cal, a friend of Lamont's, moves down to Watts to help Fred run the business. In the meantime, Fred meets a rich widow named Eve and falls in love. This is not good news for Eve's family who don't like the fact that she would fall for a common junk man. The show follows Fred as he keeps on trying to make his junk business a success and his love affair with Eve. Written by Brian Washington <Sargebri@att.net>

A sequel to the classic "Sanford and Son".
1 October 2004 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

Sanford (1980) was an attempt to relive the glory of Sanford and Son. Three years after the first show went off the air, Redd Foxx was back as Fred G. Sanford, proprietor of the Sanford "Empire" (the Sanford Arms and the Junk Store). Lamont wasn't in the series (he was written out of the storyline). Cal, a former colleague of Lamont moves in with Fred and becomes part owner of the business.

Sadly the show was buried by N.B.C. and it never had a chance to find an audience. Several characters from the old series found their way back (Aunt Esther, Grady and Rollo). Redd even found a new love interest, Eve a rich widow. The show lasted for two seasons before it faded into obscurity.

Recommended.
