1 Fred G Sanford, and the "G" stands for Grady Sucks. Every time Lamont was alone with his girl, you could count on old Grady to dump ice water on the situation. I'll take Bubba any day over that quack. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 10, 2014, 2:50 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 It's Sanford & Son, not The Life of Grady! Grady needed to sit down somewhere -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 10, 2014, 2:49 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I also agree with the previous poster about the wild applause and cheering every time Fred, Grady, Lamont, Bubba or Esther came on...it's very distracting and annoying. Like the other poster said, they were the show's regular's...so what was all the hooting and hollering about? I rather have a canned laugh track than a live one...I hate when when an Urkel, a Fonz, or a Barbarino comes on and the whole audience screams like Jesus came down from the sky. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 10, 2014, 2:48 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 After a while it seemed like Lamont stopped caring about what he was doing or saying on the show. In some scenes he sounded like he was talking in slow motion. There was the episode where Fred thinks he's Jewish and Esther is telling him the story about the Esther in the bible. An argument escalates and Fred Takes a baseball bat and starts chasing Esther. What does Lamont do? Run after Fred to stop him? No, he just stands and looks into the camera with the blankest look I've ever seen in my life. The producer should have just yelled cut after Fred chased Esther out the door. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 10, 2014, 2:47 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 They had roars of clapping before EVERY SINGLE CHARACTER. It was so bad they had to wait a good minute or so before speaking their lines to wait for the clapping to die down. For example, Fred walks in and the audience erupts in clapping. Bubba bursts through the door and the audience continues its clap-fest. Bubba, who obviously has something important to tell Fred, just stares at Fred for a good minute and a half waiting for the clap happy audience to finish so he can speak. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 10, 2014, 2:45 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

11 Fred's girlfriend Donna was annoying, whose idea was it to put her holier-than-thou ass on? -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 10, 2014, 2:41 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
12 When Redd Foxx was on contract dispute and Grady moved in, the show jumped. But it jumped back when Fred came back. But then it jumped again when Lamont left. So, how many jumps is that? -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 10, 2014, 2:40 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
13 Redd Foxx was born to play this role. Loved the show and all it's characters. I actually like the episodes in which Grady was in charge even more, but was glad to see Fred come back home. -- Submitted By: (JMoose) on November 28, 2012, 6:17 pm - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
14 The people who are saying Redd Foxx "left" are mistaken. There was one season where he was in a contract dispute and Grady subbed for him for several episodes, but Fred does return....and there's even a very funny ep revolving around Fred's "return from St. Louis". He's always listed in the opening credits, even when those eps were first run on NBC. The plots did get a little weak in the later seasons, like with Lamont getting engaged only to break it off, but that was more atrophy than boning. I thought the Hawaii episode was pretty funny with those "McGarrett" references. Also, how cool is it that this show NEVER changed the opening or closing credits footage? Even "All In The Family" updated that, but Sanford & Son was always true to its roots, lol. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 26, 2012, 10:03 am - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
15 Redd Foxx's contract disputes led his character to be put on a bus a few times, one stretch of episodes had Grady as a second main character, in fact, the supporting characters were strong (and plentiful) enough to hold up the show along side Lamont. But the final two seasons, the real seasonal rot kicked in to high gear with a increased focus on As Himself guest stars (who inexplicably showed up at the junk yard), a Vacation Episode to Hawaii and a bizarre episode that featured Fred entering a Redd Foxx look alike contest that were all very out of character for the show. On top of that, Foxx and costar Demond Wilson were both engaged in contract disputes with the network that hurt their work on camera and ultimately caused both to leave the show thus ending it. -- Submitted By: (Matthew6248) on April 23, 2012, 6:55 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
16 Redd Foxx is one the the great stand up comics. But Fred Sanford was an obnoxious old reprobate who offended and insulted everyone around him ...not in a funny way. -- Submitted By: (jgf) on February 28, 2012, 9:38 pm - (-2 votes) - Login to Vote
17 Great show which probably jumped in its last season, but spawned some of the worst spin offs (Sanford, Sanford Arms, Grady) -- Submitted By: (John63btf) on November 19, 2011, 10:01 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
18 Sometimes I catch this on TV Land. It's hilarious! RIP Redd Foxx, you were great. This has got to be one of the best sitcoms of all time. It's certainly one of my favorites. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on January 29, 2011, 12:32 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote

20 I love this show. It's still one of my favorites. I can understand why some people didn't catch on and never will, but that's the way it goes with all shows. I do feel that things started going downhill toward the end of the third season, however. The writing just seemed much less entertaining to me. And the spinoffs... Oy. Let's not even go there. -- Submitted By: (atomsk) on January 29, 2011, 12:38 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
