Steptoe on its worse day was far superior to the US copy. That quoted line isn't even that funny, if it all.

Perhaps you should watch the British original. You would enjoy it. A timeless classic, with brilliant acting, writing, and pathos.

I liked the show all the way through. The ones without Redd Foxx are the weakest of course, but still watchable. I have the series on DVD, but when I see it is on regular TV I still stop and watch.

I'd rented steptoe and son and found it very amusing indeed. And so isn't Fred and Lamont's reprise of it on Sanford and Son.

I actually like it better when it's just Fred and Lamont at the house, I cannot stand the episodes that take place away from the junkyard.

I liked the first season also. I actually enjoyed just Fred and Lamont. The other characters were fine but in the later seasons I thought they were used too much. I also like Melvin. I wish he had been on longer.
