Setting Sanford Arms in the old Sanford house just made the audience expect the quality and ambiance of Fred and Lamont. Perhaps if the show was set in an unfamiliar setting like the Sanford Arms house, the expectations wouldn't have been so high. I felt sad seeing the old house without Fred and Lamont, and the new characters and "schtick" just couldn't compare. Let's face it--Sanford and Son spoiled us!
