Storyline

Having earned financial success, self-made business man Ricardo Sanchez has moved his working-class, east-LA-born Chicano family into California's affluent Bel Air community. Following the pilot episode, they encounter much the same wacky fun you would expect from any sitcom of the mid-1980s, only rarely returning to any humor rooted specifically in the premise (i.e. Latino fish out of water in Anglo pond). Written by Silast

Before the Fresh Prince, there was... Sanchez
24 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can't believe nobody seems to remember Sanchez of Bel-Air. Not suggesting that the show was particularly memorable, and it certainly was not particularly good. But it was a key part of an era of cable when USA Network was getting its legs, long before they began showing "Law & Order" repeats or developing decent shows like "Monk." You could turn to USA back in the mid-80s and watch some real low-rent productions, of which "Sanchez" was one. The three that stick out in my mind — original productions of the network from this time period — are "Sanchez," "Check It Out" with Don Adams running a supermarket, and "Madame's Place" featuring puppet superstar combo Wayland Flowers and Madame. Otherwise, the network was good for "USA Up All Night" and game-show repeats before GSN came around.

As for Sanchez, I mainly remember pretty lame humor and overly excited canned laughter. But I never was able to think of "The Fresh Prince" without thinking first of you, Sanchez.
