Overview

The complete third season of the Emmy award-winning NBC sitcom Sanford and Son comes to DVD from Columbia TriStar. This three-disc set contains all 24 episodes from the third season, originally broadcast in 1974. Each episode is presented with a standard full-frame transfer. The Dolby Digital Mono soundtrack is available in English. The only special features are trailers, but this is still a reasonable release of a '70s TV show.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Politically incorrect comedy is the order of the day when the Sanfords, one of TV's most endearingly cantankerous families, return for another season of junkyard mischief. Join Fred (Redd Foxx), Lamont (Demond Wilson), Aunt Esther (LaWanda Page), and an inimitable supporting cast as they trade countless barbs and insults in Norman Lear's classic, stereotype-skewering series. In a minor bit of TV history, Redd Foxx does not appear in the season's final six episodes, as he was in the midst of contract negotiations (he returns in Season 4). This three-disc set includes all 24 third-season episodes in their original broadcast order and offers a visit with America's favorite (albeit only) TV family of junk sellers.

Sanford and Son: the Third Season 4.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.

This season includes some of the funniest moments of the series. The episodes of 'Lamont goes Libra' and 'Moma's Baby, Popa's Maybe' are hilarious and somewhat shocking for their day, even shocking by today's standards. This series brilliantly balances social commentary with intelligent, witty comedy. Despite, the show being know for 'Dummie Lamont' and 'Ugly Aunt Ester' jokes, Redd Foxx is a sophisticated comedian who is at his best when he turns racial stereotypes on their head.
