1 Who spends years whining about how much they can't wait to leave the ghetto but still tries to stay there anyway (unless the person has a mental problem)? Then as soon as their husband kicks the bucket, she catches the first thing smoking out of the projects, but leaves her kids there to fend for themselves? -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 19, 2014, 3:45 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 All Florida did was nag, bitch and complain. And the fact that she had virtually no neck and wore orange everyday didn't help the cause. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 19, 2014, 3:43 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

4 Good Times was always depressing from the get go, but eventually just got way too depressing to watch anymore. I mean really, finding out about James' death by TELEGRAM? Good Times indeed. And then, James wasn't even cold in the ground yet but Florida begins to date Carl Dixon. Carl and Florida get married, and go to Arizona (because Carl has lung cancer and apparently the oxygen in Arizona is healthier than the oxygen in Chicago). -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 19, 2014, 3:42 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 James and Florida are about to eat dinner, but who walks in on them, Wilona. I thought they lived in a ghetto high-rise on the South Side of Chicago, and they don't lock the front door? That was one of the reasons the shark jumped in and got them. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 19, 2014, 3:39 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 I may be in the minority here but I found Florida to be annoying, especially when she would get on her soapbox all the time over random stuff. Then my dislike for her reached new levels whenever she tried to make James give the money he found back. Ummm WTF?! Let me get this straight, you and your whole family are DIRT POOR, living in the projects, barely have any food, and your husband finds $27,000 in a random paper bag and all you can say is "give it back James"? Hell, I would have kept every penny, and moved the hell out of there. Let Florida stay in the ghetto if she loved it there so much. But what does she turn around and do after James dies? Marries Carl and leaves her family in the projects after keeping them there for so long. What a role model. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on April 26, 2014, 8:48 am - (4 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Yeah, the post-James / Janet Jackson episodes were awful cheesy. Just about every character had to have a "redeeming moment" from Alderman Fred Davis right on down to Mr. Bookman. Then you have Florida's "re-marriage, but maybe not". I guess Carl Dickson can go down in history as the first African-American sitcom character to be "Chuck Cunninghammed", or since he joined before disappearing, maybe he got "Poochied"? He must be honored! There's also "Singing" (Michael & Penny break into "I Got You Babe" - BARF the fish!). The "CB Radio" episode (Um...don't you need an antenna with that?). Thelma wanting to marry an African native named "Ebay" (no BS there - I laughed everytime I heard his name and yeah it's pronounced like the auction site too) who turns out to be a bigamist. Bad things man. I mean BAD things! -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 24, 2012, 10:55 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 Death of a major character seems all too often to be the beginning of the end of a show. i can't watch too many post-James episodes of this show..it's like watching Alice without Flo -- Submitted By: (stryker73) on August 23, 2012, 10:11 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
9 I really believe that this was a show that truly started out on the high road of the best of intentions but when Jimmie "JJ" Walker became the break-out star, it very quickly took an exit at Lowest Common Denominator. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on March 8, 2012, 10:04 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
10 I loved it! I loved JJ's lines like dynomyte! But @ the same time some of the writing was kinda degrading towards black people... -- Submitted By: (LauDor08) on November 13, 2009, 6:46 pm - (-2 votes) - Login to Vote
11 Of course they boned when James died. It's a SITCOM for crying out loud. What's so funny about a father getting killed in a car wreck and leaving a wife and 3 kids? -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on August 28, 2009, 6:20 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
12 I think they should have wrapped it up after James got killed because once he was gone, it became too much the JJ 'Dy-no_MITE!' Circus- exactly what John Amos and Esther Rolle had tried to prevent! While I'm posting, though, anyone else think it was bogus that the gorgeous,willowy Thelma could have been born from James and Florida? Come to think of it, NONE of the 'kids' looked as though they could have been the Evanses'. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on July 29, 2009, 2:35 pm - (4 votes) - Login to Vote
13 After this comment, I'm going to buy that last poster some pronouns. Yeah, like most people, I'd say the departure of John Amos was the death knell of this Norman Lear-produced "Maude" spinoff. The chemistry between him and Jimmy "J.J" Walker was the glue that held this concept together. -- Submitted By: (GregEichelberger) on July 15, 2009, 12:23 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
14 I love this show. Me and Noina watch it all the time. JJ was Dynomite! That Janet Jackson who was Penny was so cute. We love her too. I buy all her music when it come out. -- Submitted By: (shanequia) on June 6, 2009, 1:01 pm - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
