The Good Life was one of the most successful British situation comedies of all time, produced by the BBC between 1975 and 1978, running for four series and two specials.
The fortunes of the Good household wax and wane, but reach an all-time low when, in the final regular episode, on Tom's forty-second birthday, at the same time as their soil is ruined by a leakage from an oil tank, their house is broken into and vandalised.
The Good house was used, on the condition that it was returned to the state it was in previously (with a normal flower-garden) after the show ended.

 The Good Life
But those who uphold life as the chief good must distinguish it from the purpose of morality, for there are fatal objections to taking life as the moral purpose.
Good guys always win, provided that they are good enough by the only code that counts, the code of thriving, the only system of morality that's on the leisure standard.
Man has the capacity of a good life or an ill one--of thriving or dying--not because he is a man, nor because he is rational, nor yet because he is an animal; but because he is alive.

In one episode of The Young Ones the psychopathic Vyvyan (Adrian Edmondson), in a rare moment of seriousness, reflected upon The Good Life, lamenting that such a neat idea, and one which in different hands could have produced a challenging comedy about ecological concerns, was handled in such an overbearingly twee way.

You learn this hard fact early in life, for the icy shunning of a community that doesn't approve of a quick way out chills you out faster and longer than the fleeting burst of a short term enrichment.
What Nebraska doesn't teach you, however, is how to deal with the rest of the world where cheating your friends and bad-mouthing your neighbors is considered the behavioral norm -- and it isn't taught because such a situation isn't untenable in Nebraska -- it isn't taught because it's just plain unthinkable.
We'll meet some interesting folks and ponder some of the finer points of life that may be lost in a world that yearns only to go faster.

 The Good Life
“If we were right in saying that the good life is inspired by love and guided by knowledge, it is clear that the moral code of any community is not ultimate and self-sufficient but must be examined with a view to seeing whether it is such as wisdom and benevolence would have decreed.
“To live a good life in the fullest sense a man must have a good education, friends, love, children (if he desires them), a sufficient income to keep him from want and grave anxiety, good health, and work which is not uninteresting.
With respect to the role of love in achieving the good life, my view is that, while love may in fact serve as inspiration in some cases, it serves the role of conscience or morality (i.e., a guide) in all cases.

For those of you unlucky to never have seen the series, the premise is simple: Tom and Barbara Good are an average couple who live in a quiet neighborhood in Surbiton, a suburb of London, directly next door to their best friends the Ledbetters, Jerry and Margo.
These events come to pass in the first episode; what follows are the adventures of the Goods as they set up and seek to maintain their alternative lifestyle, to the horror of Margo and the eternal amusement of Jerry.
While the series was always known in Great Britain as The Good Life (an obvious pun on the title characters' surname), when it was brought to the the United States it was retitled Good Neighbors (retaining the pun, thankfully).

Rethinking what constitutes “the good life” is overdue in a world on a fast track to self-inflicted ill health and planet-wide damage to forests, oceans, biodiversity, and other natural resources.
Indeed, a new understanding of the good life can be built not around wealth but around well-being: having basic survival needs met, along with freedom, health, security, and satisfying social relations.
A good example of this is co-housing, a modern form of village living in which 10–40 individual households live in a development designed to stimulate neighborly interaction.

You see, the Good Life began as a side project for Kasher; his day job has him fronting Cursive, another Omaha, Nebraska-based band (and Saddle Creek labelmate).
The Good Life is now officially its own band, with a distinctive songwriter and sound.
Lovers Need Lawyers finds the Good Life distancing itself further from its trademark gloomy vibe with 20 minutes of stripped-down, acoustic-tinged rockers (the EP is described as a teaser for the band's new full-length, due out later this summer).

Questions like these raise an even more fundamental question, however, for they’re all based on the assumption that there is such a thing as the good life, that some people really are better — morally — than others, and that people really can make moral improvements in their lives.
In other words, they’re based on the assumption that there’s a real difference between good and bad, right and wrong — one that transcends individuals and cultures — and the assumption that we have a choice in the matter.

 ET 10/96: The Good City and the Good Life: Renewing the sense of community
Kemmis believes that the cynicism and despair that mark today's politics are a reflection of the lack of occasions for people to be present with one another in ways that acknowledge their wholeness as human beings and their common dependence on particular places on the earth.
The hallmark of such thought is the effort to attend to the particular needs of citizens without losing sight of the common good, and attend to the whole without losing sight of the value of each particular citizen.
It is perhaps not too surprising that farmers devoted to whole systems approaches on their farms are among the nation's most inspiring leaders in sparking a renewed emphasis on citizenship, community building, and civic literacy.

Unfortunately, they live in a suburban and rather posh area and their new challenge in life is greeted with more than cold indifference by their snobbish neighbours, the Leadbetters (the late Paul Eddington and the brilliant lady of the manor, Penelope Keith, a renowned British theatre actress, give incredible performances as well).
