Good Times: The E! True Hollywood Story | 1999
Documentary about the television series "Good Times," which aired on CBS from 1974 to 1979. By combining humor with social criticism, "Good Times" expanded the horizons of television and showcased a new interpretation of the black American family -- one that actually included a father. The sitcom hit like "dyn-o-mite." Audiences -- both black and white -- welcomed the Evans family into their homes and cast member Jimmie Walker became an instant star. However, tension built as the rest of the cast -- including venerable actors Esther Rolle and John Amos -- suddenly found themselves and the series overshadowed by Walker.
