For instance: Every book report had to be about black history, every movie had to involve black people, every politition had to be black, the list went on and on. All posters in there rooms were black people, furniture pieces were African. All guests were black people. Man, I can't remember ever seeing a white guy in that show! Common, Chicago wasn't all black! Actually I loved the intro and ending to each show; the painting at the end, the camera sky-views of Chicago, the theme music, the bike rider and citizens. Very cool. What I liked about this show over Sanford and Son was that whites weren't portrayed as idiots, like some stupid attack against shows in the past that put blacks in an Aunt Jemima mode, please!
It also dated politics, recession, wages, history. It was great. The best episodes were the first few years with James Evans, the father. He was tough, but loving and kind.
He took no bull from any of the kids. He worked hard.

He loved his wife. The way he was written out of the show was very abrupt. He was out of town, got hit by a car, and died. This funeral episode was excellent. Ester Rolle was handling the death all well untill the end. As she was putting away dishes from the wake at their house, she saw a flower James had left her and kept working, she finally stopped and smashed a bowl on the kitchen floor as she swore and then broke down in tremendous grief over the loss of her husband.
Her children who were shocked she hadn't grieved in front of others but was laughing then ran from their rooms and comforted her with a family hug. The show ended. No canned laughter, no music. Great acting. Why did James John Amos leave the show? A movie career? Contract disputes? I don't know. Aids wiped him out not long ago. The original lineup could've easily gone on a few more years.

Rolle was similarly disenchanted with the way J. Fed up with the turn the series had taken, in the midst of season four she demanded a raise along with better scripts. So Florida married Carl and the couple moved to Arizona, where the weather would be better for his newly diagnosed lung cancer. Willona Woods, the gossipy neighbor and family friend, was suddenly promoted to the new maternal figure for the Evans children.
In an effort to transform Willona from sassy swinging single to a believable surrogate mother, the writers decided she needed a child of her own. They forewent the traditional nine-month gestation period and instead added Janet Jackson as Penny Gordon, an abused child who is abandoned by her birth mother and adopted by Willona. Jackson was 11 years old when she started on the show and has since stated that she was unhappy during her entire run.
Walker was the breakout star of the show, but both Carter and BernNadette Stanis who played Thelma Evans achieved bona fide teen idol status thanks to their exposure on Good Times , and were in steady competition with the Jackson brothers and Diana Ross in the Hollywood gossip columns. Carter launched a successful singing career during his spare time, and Stanis became a poster favorite and regular magazine cover girl.
Two of those pals were Jay Leno and David Letterman. Walker finagled a small guest spot on Good Times for Leno during season three.

Years later, after Good Times had been cancelled and Letterman was the star of Late Night , Walker could still phone Letterman at any time and get a spot on his show. So they went back to Rolle and asked her to return; she repeated her previous requirements—more money and better scripts—and the producers agreed. Unfortunately, it was a bit too late.

The series ended with its sixth season. Inspiration for a new species name can come from anywhere. According to Mashable , Australian scientists discovered a new kind of bee fly and found it had similar characteristics to the iconic Night King from Game of Thrones. For instance, it is only collected in winter, it resides solely in one region of Western Australia, and it has a hairy coating, especially on its head, which makes it look like a crown. Kind of sounds like the undead leader, right? In honor of its apparent resemblance to the character, the species is now called Paramonovius nightking.
It is one of 83 types of bombyliini described by Mashable as "typically stout and hairy bee flies" found in Australia.
