Better Progressive Show? Good Times or The Cosby Show?
How about it? Let's set Bill Cosby's legal issues aside and just judge the content of The Cosby Show. To me Good Times is more progressive as it shows a family facing very significant economic problems with grace and character. The father makes the best use of his abilities in his surroundings and the kids avoid severe moral pitfalls. While Cliff and Clare become white color professionals that is not an avenue open to most people regardless of background even in 2020. There might be better progressive shows out there I just find anything made in the last 20 years sorely lacking in the reality department. Everybody is either super rich and/or good looking without a satisfactory explanation. Give me flawed characters that reflect a lot of Americans even today such as Dan and Roseanne Connor.share
