season 1 portrayed the frustrations in the lives of African American Life in the inner city ghetto i enjoyed season 1 of sanford and son because it only focused on two different people lamont and fred who were always fighting each other are about to cuss each other out they did their best at hurting each others feeings they were also a little bit racist or being prejudice or having negative views about how they see other people they did have one thing in common they were both 2 poor black men looking for a easy and desperate way to get money from total strangers in the junk bussinese but always backfired at the end of the show plus the first season lamont looked furious and upset bacause his father never gives him privacy are does things that bugs him, plus in season one it wasent to many people in the show like grady, aunt easter,bubba,woody and other cast members, season 1 felt more realistic to me in the later seasons it seemed wacky kinda reminded me of a 70's family matters show without steve urkle lol

They wrote a good portion of those awful fourth, fifth and sixth seasons. They are also responsible for the general tone of the show during those last seasons as their influence (as producers) grew larger since the main actors did not seem to give a damn about the quality of the show.

I actually liked Season 1 best. It was nice having just Fred and Lamont. The others were alright on occasion but they really wore out their welcome in the last two seasons, although I did enjoy the Grady episodes in Seasons 3 and 4 when Fred was gone. Plus, I really liked Fred's friend Melvin in Season 1 and I wish he could have been there longer.

Season 6 because of horrible eps?



I will go with season six mainly because of the episode Sargeant Gork

I loved the Steptoe and Son adaptations of Season One, though... I conjfess the entire series now gives me a pleasant nostalgia.

Need to refresh on the reality of Sanford, soon.

Oh yeah... Melvin:

"I want my daddy's records."

Greatest scene ever.
