The Evans family experienced a number of fairly momentous events in Season Three. Thelma got engaged and almost moved to California; J.J. eloped, only finding out in the nick of time that his beloved was a junkie; Florida had to have gall bladder surgery, an event which put the family in bad economic straits for awhile (J.J.Read more ›
The laughs kept on coming, although JJ(Jimmie Walker) was at the time the focus of the show despite the talented Amos and Esther Rolle (who also left the show when she became fed up with the buffoonery behind Walker's character).Not an episode was broadcast without one "Dy-No-Mite".
The classic episodes of the season includes The Family Gun, Florida's Protest, Cleatus, J.J.'s Fiancee ,Sweet Daddy Williams,The Investigation, and J.J. in Trouble.
Unfortunately Amos was asked to leave the show and his character was killed off in an auto accident.The show would last three more seasons (including the fifth where Rolle left the show, only to return in the final season),but it was obvious that season three was it's peak.
"Operation Florida (where Florida needs a gall bladder operation and finds herself in a nice hospital that James is afraid he can't pay for)," the two part episodes where JJ's girlfriend (Debbie Allen) is strung out on drugs, the episode when Florida and Willona are thrown in jail for a protest outside of a grovery store that sells bad meat (and they eventually give the store manager a taste of his own meat) and there are more great episodes on this set. As the previous seasons are, there are no extras included, but if your a building your classic TV on DVD collection you won't want to miss the third season of Good Times!
Good Times centers around the lives of James (John Amos) and Florida Evans (Esther Rolle), an African-American couple raising their three children in a Chicago housing development. Eldest son J.J. (Jimmie Walker) is a skinny, wisecracking ladies man with an affinity for painting. Middle child Thelma (BernNadette Stanis) plays the role of moderating influence on the passions of her two brothers, while youngest son Michael (Ralph Carter) is always involved in a cause to help others or end an injustice. The family is often visited by Florida's best friend 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 provided by overweight super Nathan Bookman (Johnny Brown), Good Times is a family-oriented TV series laden with great one-liners and plenty of laugh-tracks...
The Good Times (Season 3) DVD features a number of hilarious episodes including the season premiere "A Real Cool Job" in which James, having taken a number of courses at a trade school, is finally offered the high-paying job of his dreams.Read more ›
