Available together as a combo pack, or as individual seasons, this January

The Good Times are back! Relive the '70s sitcom smash from producer Norman Lear and executive producer Bud Yorkin. A spin-off of Maude, which was itself a spin-off of All In The Family, Good Times first aired in February 1974 and viewers of all races and ages instantly connected with the Evans family.
Money was scarce, but laughs and love were abundant for Florida (Esther Rolle), her hardworking husband James (John Amos), and their three kids living in the projects of South Side Chicago. From the outrageous antics of budding artist J.J., to the romantic dramas of sister Thelma and pint-sized Michael's activist causes, these parents had their hands full.
Adding to the fun was next-door neighbor, sassy divorcee Willona, who would later in the series adopt a young daughter, Penny, played by superstar Janet Jackson! Tackling topical, sometimes even controversial, subject matter with wit and sensitivity, Good Times was a breakthrough series in many ways. Now you can revive your inner jive with this "Dyn-O-Mite" 3 DVD collection!
The first two seasons of this legendary sitcom first came to DVD a decade ago, in 2003 and 2004. Now Mill Creek Entertainment has licensed the show from Sony, and on January 21st will put out Good Time - Seasons 1 & 2 as a 3-disc set for just $14.98 SRP! Or, if you prefer, you can spend $9.98 SRP each for individual releases of Season 1 (one disc) and Season 2 (two discs), both available on the same day as the combo set. Whichever you pick, you just know it's going to be Dyn-O-Mite! The artwork is only final right now for Mill Creek's first season set, so here's a look at that:
