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>

Milking it Until It Was Dry
24 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

This was just another example of trying to revisit history with disastrous results. Sanford and Son was truly a classic, but N.B.C., which was desperate for ratings at the time thought it would be a good idea to bring back America's favorite junk man. However, missing were Lamont, Grady and Donna. Esther, Rollo and Bubba were there as well as a new girlfriend named Eve as well as Eve's upper crust family. Also new to the cast was Cal, a friend of Lamont's who worked with him in Alaska, which was where Lamont had supposedly moved to work on the pipeline. But still, it was not the same and it truly was a shame to see how far the mighty had fallen. The thing that really killed the show was that it simply lacked the dynamic relationship between Lamont and Fred and the chemistry between Fred and the rest of the cast was just not the same. Too bad N.B.C. had to destroy a once great character.
