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>

Not as good,but not bad.
4 May 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Sanford was a welcomed spin off to fans of the original show,however,with Lamont gone and replaced with a 300 lb Dennis Burkley (Cal Petty)the show became one fat joke after another.Not that it wasnt always dull,once when Cal stepped on the scales the sounds of springs popping and twanging could be heard (the audience laughed it up,if it was a real live audience),however to those who were/are obese the show could be considered very cruel.I for one thought the first "season" was very entertaining,jokes loaded everywhere...never a dull moment,but season two (after a brief hiatus)was terrible.The jokes were lame and the "audience" wasnt laughing.Something major was wrong...a comedy show without comedy????? It was sad to see "Sanford" disappear,but it was bound to happen with writing like that,even Foxx didnt seem to put his all into it.A bad way to go out....
