Benzino always reminded me of Florida Evans they both have no neck. I think I saw every Good Times episode. Penny's character irked my nerves. I didn't understand how they made JJ into some heartthrob that got all the girls. I like What's Happening too bad Re-Run died

I think Florida portrayed another side of black. Yes the family could have made it out of the pj the lazy and illegal way...but Fkorida represented high morals, integrity and character. She didn't fit the poor black stereotypes and she set a good example for the kids... I think James is still one of the best tv dads of all times!

The kids always rocked the " baddest threads" to be so poor. JJ always had on a pair of Levi's...I guess u had to live near that era to appreciate dhows like this.. The Jeffersons is still FUNNY!

good times and Sanford & son are my favorite black shows from the old school.  I didn't find it depressing, just did a lot of stupid ish...but sitcoms are pretty silly in general.  Preferred Sanford & son.

I like them as well. I still dont like Florida. .lol she wasnt always moral she was just complacent. She wouldn't let james go to Alaska but she ley him go to Mississippi. Lol S&S is classic i many ways Red Foxx one liners still have me rollin.


I wonder if a good time'esk show would be successful or if it would be frowned upon....

i been watching a lot of different strokes and jeffersons lately. never realized that the jeffersons was so good. it makes me happy. 

good times get on my nerves mostly. i watch it every now and then though when i'm bored. i need to find facts of life and punky brewster.
