Good Times (1974)
Funny show, one of my favorites on TV Land
I absolutely love this show despite the fact that it was taped 30 years ago. It was about a black family of five living in the ghetto in Chicago. The show dealt with real life issues that can happen in any family, not only in the Evan's household. No matter what the Evans family went through, they always stuck together as a family and made it through the toughest times up until the very end of the show. And yes there were several times throughout the seasons that James and JJ had an opportunity to get the family out of the ghetto, but didn't because of Florida's strong religious beliefs and values. I understand why Florida would object at times to moving out of the ghetto because you have to have values and do it for the right reasons. I watch the show whenever it is on or I get a chance. I really liked it when John Amos was on the show because I found him to be a very humorous character and at the same time a strict but loving father. JJ and Willona were also funny, and all the characters were funny too. I wish that John Amos's character was never killed off because I thought that the show kind of fell apart and lost dignity to what the show was about. Had he not been killed off, the show would have lasted longer or maybe as long as Cheers or The Jeffersons. I would recommend this show because it is very funny and you will like it.
