Default Good Times - The Complete Series DVD Review

The good times are here again in The Complete Series of the classic TV series, Good Times! This 17 disc set contains all 133 episodes from the six year run of the series about the Evans family, the family that doesn’t have much except for each other. The series was a spinoff of the series Maude, although it has become much more popular and well-known in syndication than the series it was spunoff from. The series stars Esther Rolle and John Amos as Florida and James Evans, a married couple that are trying to make it in the projects. They have three kids: JJ, Thelma, and Michael. JJ is played by Jimmie Walker and ultimately becomes the star of the show through using memorable catchphrases and sometimes reinforcing stereotypes that the show was probably intended to fight against.

As the series progressed, James Evans was killed off (actually, John Amos was fired), but the series went on for three more years without him. In this time period, neighbor Willona (played by Ja’Net DuBois) became even more prominent in the series and was even the star of the series during the fifth season (when Esther Rolle temporarily left the series). To add to the series, Willona adopted a daughter of her own, Penny, played by future music superstar Janet Jackson. In a nutshell, that is the story of Good Times!

All 133 episodes for only $47.99 at Amazon.com! Good Times indeed.
