Looking Back On A Classic TV Scene!

In 1976, the sit-com, “Good Times” had a major transition.

John Amos, who played the patriarch of the Evans family, was fired by the producers of the series after he objected to the way the TV show was putting more emphasis on the comedy of Jimmie Walker, who played “J.J.” on the show rather than on the show’s serious nature.

The beginning episode in the show’s third season was one of television’s most heart-breaking. The closing moments of the episode where James Evans died shows his wife, Florida, has finally accepted the fact that her husband is really gone.
