Did You Know?


Fred Sanford (Redd Foxx) asks his son Lamont (Demond Wilson) why he always calls him "pop" and has never called him "dad". During the very first few episodes of season 1 of "Sanford & Son", Lamont usually referred to Fred as "Dad" and not "Pop". See more »


Uncle Woodrow 'Woody' Anderson: [as Esther and Daniel come into the store, Woody turns to Fred] Does he look tough to you?
Fred G. Sanford: Hard to tell. Standing next to Esther, King Kong would look like John-Boy.

Atheism is not a disease
13 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was one of the most disgusting TV episodes I have ever seen. Esther meets her adopted son, who happens to be an atheist teen. Basically, This episode portrays atheism as something that is horrible and morally wrong. I thought this episode placed religion in a bad light by showing how judgmental one can be. Obviously, I did not like this episode and particularly did not care for the negative connotation placed with atheism. This could have been a wonderful episode , embracing differences not shunning them. Shame on the writers of this for this awful , hateful episode. The bright side is that the other S and S eps are much better.
