I was around during the original episodes on TV. I never watched the show regularly, just an episode here and there.
I would not say "annoying" to describe it, but I just did not find it interesting.

I did think that "Chico And The Man" was only trying to be another "Sanford And Son."

Both shows overdid the concepts of crotchety older man and whipper-snapping younger man.

I'm a fan of Freddie Prinze's stand up career, but I couldn't stand Chico And The Man. It was like the first season of Sanford and Son but not as fun at alll to me. The stereotyping was just too much with Prinze's accent. The last season without Prinze is awful!

When I was little watching the show, I used to think Fred Sanford was WHITE lol, I guess I never made the connection that he and Lamont were father and son at that time.

I like Lamont as well. The reversal of roles between father and son are one of the things that make the sitcom so funny!
Indeed, the show is run on antenna tv twice a day where I live and don't mind a bit. However, I sure wished Bewitched wasn't on as often as it is. I like some episodes, ( and I love some charcTers such as mrs kravitz and samantha's aunt) but it's not a favorite of mine.
