I used to love this show when I was a kid. When I would come home afterschool I used to look forward to watching Good Times it was and still is and always will be one of my favorite television shows. This show included some of the best black actors in the world in my eye; They were: John Amos, Ja'net Dubois, Esther Rolle truly a pioneer one of my idols , T.K. Carson, Johnny Brown, Roscoe Brown, Jimmie Walker, Debbie Allen, Ralph Carter, Bernadette Stanis, Ben Powers, Janet Jackson, Shirley Hemphill, Theodore Wilson, Calvin Lockhart, Rosiland Cash, Lincoln Kilpatrick, Paulene Myers, Phillip Michael Thomas, Hubert Johnson, Helen Martin, Debbi Morgan, Moses Gunn, and many many other great actors. I thank these wonderful actors/actresses because they helped pave the way and made Black Entertainment and Black Talent. I love this show it showed the real world and real lessons that go on in this cruel world. This show made me laugh and made me cry. Everytime I drink kool-aid I think about J.J. and I love the phrase "Dynomite". I love this show it also taught me Black Pride. and when I was a little girl watching them in rerunds I always looked forward to the Black Jesus, Thelma's Wedding and being married, Janet Jackson, and James episodes. I especially love the performances. My favorite performances on this disc is when Wanda needed money to pay her rent ; They had a rent party and Thelma,Wilona, and Florida performed "Stop in the name of Love" and the my favorite "Young and In Love" by Ralph Carter(Stacy Latttisaw's song). I love this show it brings back so many memories it taught a lot of lessons and showing what it like to be black and to be proud of who and what you are and that you can acheive success and that you can eventually get out of the ghetto, black talent, black everything Ilove this show. I thank the person who decided to release this on dvd thank you so much it is worth every dollar I can't wait until they finish the whole series then my GOOD TIMES collection will be complete. I wish that they would do a reunion that would be so wonderful if any Reunion show I would like to see this would be the one..........
