1 Actually, people who live in government housing DO pay rent. It's usually based on how much income they have and their overall expenses. Food stamps are not blank checks but cover a percentage of a family's food budget, so yeah, a family in government housing and on food stamps still has to pay rent, buy food, clothes for the family and the other assorted expenses we all pay, including utility bills and transportation costs. Before you say they don't pay for public transportation, think again. Public buses are not free and the costs can add up quickly. On average, the one-way fair is 2 dollars. Take the bus to your job and back five days a week and that adds up to 80 dollars a month. If both mom and dad use the bus, it's 160 dollars a month. That's a big chunk of money for poor people. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on October 6, 2014, 11:06 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 The big issue with the show, was the family lived in the Government Projects and they made it a problem when it came to paying rent or buying food. But you pay nothing to live in the projects also they got food stamps too. -- Submitted By: () on October 2, 2014, 11:18 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 The Wayans' Good Times parody is fucking hilarious. I normally don't find them funny but trust me, their impersonation of everyone (especially Florida, James and JJ) are spot on and hit the nail on the head. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 7, 2014, 5:24 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

6 When James died, the show died right along with him. Too bad WE didn't find out by telegram too. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 7, 2014, 5:21 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
7 As poor as they were, why in the hell did they always let Thelma burn up all the damn food? They barely had any food as it was, but their dumb asses let her ruin what little bit they did have. Stupid. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 7, 2014, 5:20 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
8 With ALL those people hanging around, why couldn't they all just get a damn job and bust there asses to get out of the ghetto? Maybe someone should have stuck some damn DYN-O-MITE under JJ's lazy ass!!! -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 7, 2014, 5:19 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
9 Wilona, a single woman with no kids, seemed misplaced in the projects. Was she on disability? And why, oh why did they add Kieth to the already declining sitcom? A football star marries ghetto girl and moves to the projects to live with the ghetto family. Whatever. Oh yeah, when he shows up he's unfunny. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 7, 2014, 5:17 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
10 I remember my mom and I were once watching the episode after the funeral when Florida threw the punch bowl (not very smart considering the breadwinner just died) and my mom clicked off the TV and said, "enough of this shit" and walked out of the room. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 7, 2014, 5:16 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

12 Good Times definitely jumped when James died. But I wondered what was behind that door in the kitchen. And why did it have a chain lock on it? Why was Willona's apartment so nice and the Evans' looked all grimy? Weird -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 7, 2014, 5:13 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
13 How convenient that Michael Evans just happened to know every single statistic off the top of his head! "Mama, don't you know that ppl who live in the ghetto have a 87.9% chance of being killed by police?" or "Daddy, don't you know that those suspenders are 78.674638% more likely to cause hernias?" He should have been in the Guinness Book of World Records for being a walking encyclopedia. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 7, 2014, 5:09 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
14 I don't blame John Amos for leaving. Can you imagine having to be around all those annoying people every week? Especially Florida and JJ? And Michael with his long ass Black Panther speeches. "Listen here brother! The Man is trying to stick it to us, we have to fight! We're being held down by a racist society and we've got to have unity, don't be a jive turkey!" Come on, what 10 year old talks like that??? How about you go play some tag football or go drink a malt, stop interrupting adult conversations with stuff that they weren't even talking about in the first place. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 7, 2014, 5:04 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
15 There are so many JTS moments with this show (Penny, James' death, Bookman), but the one that really bugged me is the way no one kept their doors locked. I MEAN THIS WAS THE HOOD! They were always talking about how bad the neighborhood was, but people (Wilona in particular) just barged in and out of the Evans' apartment without knocking all of the time! And the door was NEVER LOCKED!! I grew up in the projects and we would have been dead if we had the "open door policy" people in that housing project had! -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 7, 2014, 5:00 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
16 Florida was sadistic. Not only that but she left her damn family in the hood to go marry some nigga like 10 seconds after husband died. What an asshole. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 7, 2014, 4:58 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
17 The show jumped the shark when James died. You can't have one of the main characters just kick the bucket like that and expect things to just be cool. And the ironic part is, the name of the show is "Good Times", but I can't think of one single good time throughout the whole show! -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 7, 2014, 4:56 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

20 Temporary layoffs? Good times! Easy credit rip-offs? Good times? Getting burned by iiiirons, good times! Your husband is DYIIIING, good times! Ain't we lucky we got eeeem! Good times!!! -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 7, 2014, 4:52 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
