It's one of my favorite shows, the only thing about it is the show's title: "Good Times." The only time the title meant something was the last episode when they finally moved out out the ghetto.

I used to love that show, even watched it today on TV1. Florida Evans was a very nice character.

I'm always trying to be honest, so honest that I didn't want to answer this question. Yes Florida is beautiful in character and personality, but she's no Thelma or Willona. Thelma was the full package. You have to take into affect that the character of Florida was meant to be the middle aged mother of the character of Thelma, and could no way expect to be physically as beautiful as her daughter.

beauty has nothing to do with age. There are women in their 40 s that are just as beautiful and more beautiful than Thelma. Looking only at the faces, please tell me what makes thelma beautiful,and what makes Florida not beautiful. Be honest.

Just a side note, I know someone who by chance saw Esther Rolle(Florida) in person. He told me she was very snobby, and nothing you'd expect based on her "Good Times" character. He asked her if she was Esther Rolle, and she just kept stepping with her head tilted up and said to him in a snobby way, "Yes", like yes so what. I think I heard that about her from another source, I'm not sure. Of course I was told this when she was alive, so it's a little difficult to say this while she is deceased, but this s what I was told.

But anwyay, I'll answer your question, and I'll keep it real, however you may not like what I say here. But first, let me inform you that she was about 20 years older than John Amos (James Evans) in real life. At some point, age does matter. She was about 60 when that show ended. In comparing her face to Thelmas', Floridas' face was a little too chubby, plus she had that gap between her front teeth. Then she was starting to get grey. These things come with age. I myself would be nuts if I were to expect a girl to tell me I was as handsome as I was when I was in my 20's. You can't beat Father Times. Anyway enough of talking about Florida. What made Thelma look good, was that glowing youthful spirit. You could see it in her eyes. Plus she had a nice white set of teeth, with her sweet smile. I also dug that sexy back in the day afro. She's always been my ideal type woman, and being old school,(minus the afro perhaps) I'd put her in front of any of the Huxable older girls, including the mother Claire.
