I love this series. By Season Six the series was back on track. Mama came back. Thelma was married to Keith. And J.J. was J.J. By the way, I love the DVD cover. Doesn't it look like they all sat there and specifically posed for this DVD? That's so cool. Does anyone know how Ralph Carter is? I remember reading some years back in The Enquirer that he is HIV-positive. I hope he is staying healthy.

The song for "Good Times" was written by Alan & Marilyn Bergman.

These are the opening-theme lyrics to "Good Times"

Good Times.
Any time you meet a payment. - Good Times.
Any time you need a friend. - Good Times.
Any time you're out from under.
Not getting hassled, not getting hustled.
Keepin' your head above water,
Making a wave when you can.

Temporary lay offs. - Good Times.
Easy credit rip offs. - Good Times.
Scratchin' and surviving. - Good Times.
Hanging in and jiving- Good Times.
Ain't we lucky we got `em - Good Times

And, these are the closing-theme lyrics to "Good Times"

Mmmmmm
Just lookin' out of the window.
Watchin' the asphalt grow.
Thinkin' how it all looks hand-me-down.
Good Times, yeah, yeah Good Times

Keepin' your head above water
Makin' a wave when you can

Temporary lay offs. - Good Times.
Easy credit rip offs. - Good Times.
Ain't we lucky we got 'em - Good Times.

The 1978-79 season,the sixth and final of CBS's Good Times brought a few changes amongst the cast and plot. The late Esther Rolle,who was written out for 1977-78,returned to the show by popular demand. Rolle was jealously disappointed by the abundant attention Jimmie Walker's character James "J.J." Evans Jr. was receiving. J.J. became increasingly popular since the 1974 premiere. Rolle's character Florida Evans,mother of J.J.,Thelma(Bern Nadette Stanis) and Michael(Ralph Carter),took Carl Dixon(the late Moses Gunn) to be her second husband. It was written that Florida and Carl had been on their extended honeymoon throughout 1977-78. Carl owned and operated a repair shop that Michael worked at part-time after school and on weekends. Florida met Carl when one day,back in season 4,she came to the shop to discuss a matter or two with Michael. Carl fell in love with Florida but she was not ready for a new mate(Florida lost her first husband James Sr. in a Mississippi auto accident-explained in the season 4 premiere). In reality,James Sr.'s portrayer John Amos was fired after the end of season 3. Sadly,Carl had been diagnosed with lung cancer and he and Florida spent some time in Arizona for the sake of his health. Willona Woods(Ja 'Net Dubois),the Evans' neighbor and friend served as a mother figure for the Evans children while Florida was on her honeymoon with Carl. Willona is still a loving mother to Penny Gordon(superstar Janet Jackson who joined the cast at the beginning of season 5). Popping into the Evans' apartment often like Willona is landlord Nathan Bookman(Johnny Brown,who became a regular in season 5 also). Nathan,nicknamed "Buffalo Butt" and by Willona,"Booger",claims that the Evanses were his favorite tenants despite a series of warnings from previous seasons.Read more ›

This (to me personally) is the best season of the show. Everything is perfect, Florida (Esther Rolle) is back, Thelma get's married and in the end they all get out of the ghetto rich in all.

The 6th and final season of Good Times is bittersweet for me. I own all the seasons on DVD and had watched them for years as re-runs. I am glad all the Evans' and Willona finally escape the projects, but sad that the show has to end. It's like they become your family, b/c the situations are so real. The struggles, heartaches, you feel them too. My fave episodes include the one with the deaf boy, Larry, I also liked the one were JJ has to donate blood to Sweet Daddy and the one were Florida and the kids get stuck out in a snowstorm. Good Times is and will always be one of my fave TV shows, ain't we lucky we got 'em? RIP Esther Rolle.

Anything but, lol. My sister loves this show and had every season except for this one. I purchased the sixth and last season as a Christmas gift for her, not knowing she had made the purchase already. I kept it for my own collection but haven't watched it. I remember it from TV though and I have to say by the sixth season the sitcom had lost its initial vigor. The addition of Janet Jackson didn't do much to revive the ailing show, as it had lost at least two of its best actors. I would recommend it to the collector who has the rest of the collection, but not as a stand alone.
