Men in Trees' John Amos Recalls the Good Times He's Had

Everybody knows the dad from Good Times. But did you know that the actor who plays him actually got his big break on the Mary Tyler Moore Show? Well, we're here to remind you, as we walk with John Amos down memory lane past all the roles that have lead him to his current gig, the lovable pilot Buzz on ABC's Men in Trees (Thursdays at 10 pm/ET). Meteorologist Gordy Howard on the Mary Tyler Moore Show, 1970-1973"When [producers] told me they were going to bring me on the Mary Tyler Moore Show, I felt read more

In your recent comments about ...

Question: In your recent comments about the Parents Television Council, you made reference to people who wish that all TV looked like Nick at Nite. I understood your point. But it is interesting to note that Nick at Nite does show episodes of All in the Family and Good Times, two series that caused an uproar with groups like the PTC in the '70s, and has in the past run episodes of Maude, another controversial show. In fact, I was watching All in the Family the other night and thought that there was no way a show like that could make it to network TV today. As far as the PTC goes, it's pretty simple: If you don't like it, don't watch it. There is plenty of technology available to parents for blocking channels. For that matter, there is no law saying that one must own a TV. If it offends thee, pluck it out, as someone once said. Don't subject the rest of us to a worldview that sees Petticoat Junction as the zenith of American television. Answer: Not that there's anything wrong with ... read more

Do you remember a show with, ...

Question: Do you remember a show with, I think, the guy from Highway to Heaven and a black actor that was sort of a comedy version of In the Heat of the Night? It's driving me nuts.


Answer: Yes.

Aaaah, you didn't really think I was gonna stop at being a wiseacre and answer your question with one word, did you? You'll never so easily curb my urge to babble, Joon.

Funny you use the word "nuts," since the show in question, ABC's Carter Country, bore the name of former peanut farmer Jimmy Carter, who was president at the time it debuted in September 1977. As you say, it bore a strong resemblance to In the Heat of the Night, which 10 years later would be a hit TV series itself.

Question: I recently watched the Good Times marathon on TV Land and was wondering about these shows with no parents. J.J. seemed to be in charge — what happened to Florida and James? Were they on strike?


Answer: OK, let's make this another look back at my past gifts, shall we? I graced the screen with my wisdom on this issue a couple of years back, too.

Premise: The 'Maude' spin-off about a black family living in a Chicago housing project mined poverty, racism, inner-city woes and single-parent homes for humor, with varying degrees of success. J.J.'s enthusiastic 'dyn-o-mite!' became the show's catchphrase, and the series, created under Norman Lear's guidance, was a popular destination for viewers in the 1970s.
