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>

No Lamont, but the laughs are still plentiful.
30 May 2003 | by (Little Rock, AR) – See all my reviews

I actually saw this show before I ever saw an episode of "Sanford and Son". After watching them both, I honestly thought that "Sanford" was much funnier. Redd Foxx, in his older age, seems to have a sharper, more spiteful humor. He certainly carries the show, but the supporting characters make great targets for "Fred's" off-color remarks. If your already familiar with "Sanford and Son", then you may not like "Sanford" simply due to the fact that major staples in the show are missing. However, if you haven't grown accustomed to Lamont, and other familiar characters that don't appear in "Sanford", then you will probably agree that it is much more enjoyable over all. Give it a fair chance without expecting it to be just another spin off.
