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 Good Example To Leave Well Enough Alone
11 December 2000 | by (Chicago, USA) – See all my reviews

This spinoff of sorts was a weak attempt to continue to the success of Sanford and Son. Lamont Sanford's character had taken a job elsewhere and his friend Cal took the place of Fred's partner in the business. Fred also had a new girlfriend, a rich Beverly Hills matron (it was never explained what happened to his fiancee, Donna, from the previous show). His new girlfriend had a mother who disapproved of Fred being a junkman from South Central LA. Aunt Esther was also still on hand to exchange insults, but the magic that had made the earlier show a classic was just not there.
