Who was your favorite all time TV dad?

This past weekend the 70's sitcom "Good Times" celebrated that shows 45th anniversary and my favorite TV dad was the dad in that series James Evans, who was portrayed by actor John Amos. Back then, many shows depicted fathers in a positive manner and I also liked the Andy Griffith Show and Leave it to Beaver though those two shows were already just showing reruns by time I started watching.

Looking back, the James Evans character stands out to me because I remember him as someone who in spite of living in a horrible housing project in the south side of Chicago was a very proud and hard working man who would strive to set a good example for his children. James himself did not finish high school and wanted his kids to not make the same mistake and be sure they get a good education, including attending college. James did his best to overcome poverty and provide for his family and refuse to accept any form of charity even when in between jobs.

I've been pondering on James Evans and you are right on all counts. He set a great example even/despite living in the ghetto and kept his family out of trouble, showed strong love, and stressed education. I was sad when he took that job in Alaska to provide for his family and never made it back. It was so sad he died on the way back to his loved ones. Yet he had instilled the family with good morals and they went on being a family he would have been proud of. He was a great role model. Reply
