When it hit the CBS airwaves in 1974, GOOD TIMES had some humble beginnings to overcome: it was spun-off from a topical TV heavyweight which was, in turn, a spin-off of a sitcom that cast an even larger shadow. Fortunately, it didn't take long for the show to emerge as its own entity. The series follows the trials and tribulations of Florida Evans (who was previously a maid on MAUDE after Maude broke off from her own ALL IN THE FAMILY relatives) and her close-knit household on the south side of Chicago. Florida (Esther Rolle) and her husband James (John Amos) are lower-middle class African-Americans living in a high rise housing project with their three children: Thelma (Ja'Net DuBois); Michael (Ralph Carter); and the wisecracking J.J. (Jimmy Walker), whose "Dy-No-Mite" would become a national catchphrase. While James may sometimes have trouble finding steady work, through it all, the family sticks together. Veering between comedy and drama in its refusal to shy away from social issues, GOOD TIMES is a landmark in American television. This box set includes all 6 seasons and 133 episodes of the entire series.
