''Sanford and Son'' -- The NBC smash starring Redd Foxx reairs on TV Land.

Sure, the show was called Sanford and Son, but there was much more to it than Redd Foxx’s cranky junk man and his long-suffering offspring (Demond Wilson). Norman Lear’s 1972-77 NBC smash vividly painted L.A.’s South Central community of African-Americans (Whitman Mayo’s Grady), Latinos (Gregory Sierra’s Julio), and Asians (Pat Morita’s Ah Chew). And therein lies an irony: For a show that was brazenly un-PC for its time, its inclusivity looks downright enlightened compared with today’s segregated sitcoms.
