Nominated for 3 Golden Globes, Good Times premiered in mid-season 1974 to widespread critical praise and audience popularity. A spin-off of the Bea Arthur (of Golden Girls fame) sitcom Maude (1972), Good Times became the fourth of 5 highly successful sitcoms brought into being during the 1970′s decade by Norman Lear. In addition to Maude, those sitcoms were All In The Family (1971), Sanford & Son (1972), and The Jeffersons (1975). The second of 3 to focus exclusively on African-American family life, Good Times became a basis for groundbreaking social commentary in compliment to its penchant for hilarious family comedy…
Good Times centers around the lives of James (John Amos) and Florida Evans (Esther Rolle), an African-American pair raising their 3 youngsters in a Chicago housing development. Eldest son J.J. (Jimmie Walker) is a skinny, wisecracking ladies man with an affinity for painting. Middle youngster Thelma (BernNadette Stanis) plays the function of moderating impression on the passions of her two brothers, at the same time as youngest son Michael (Ralph Carter) is always involved in a cause to assist others or end an injustice. The family is often visited by Florida’s best buddy from high school, Willona (Ja’net DuBois), who also lives in the project. In later seasons, she’s accompanied by adopted daughter Penny (Janet Jackson). With additional comic relief furnished by obese super Nathan Bookman (Johnny Brown), Good Times is a family-oriented TV series laden with large one-liners and plenty of laugh-tracks…
The Good Times DVD (Season 1) features a number of hilarious episodes including the series premiere “Too Old Blues” in which James is fascinating at the prospect of being hired for a high-paying job. But at the same time as at the interview, James learns that the training program for the job only accepts qualified applicants elderly 18-35. At 42, he’s too old for the job. Meanwhile, Florida and the children have put together a unexpected surprise party unaware that James was rejected… Other notable episodes from Season 1 include “Getting Up the Rent” in which the Evans family is faced with an eviction notice, prompting every member to devise a scheme for coming up with the necessary cash, and “The Visitor” in which Michael’s letter-to-the-editor about the housing conditions at the Evans’ project merits a visit from a housing commission official who experiences the squalor firsthand…Below is a list of episodes included on the Good Times (Season 1) DVD:
