TV show description:
Set in the 1980s, this sitcom follows the Goldberg family, a loving American family who yells more than most. Adam, the geeky 11 year old son, documents his family’s life with his video camera. The series is based on creator Adam F. Goldberg’s real-life family experiences, which he also used to capture on video tape.

Beverly (Wendi McLendon-Covey) is an overbearing and overprotective PTA mom who loves to shop and isn’t afraid to use her big mouth to protect her kids. She rules the family with absolute authority — and zero sense of boundaries.

Murray (Jeff Garlin) is a gruff and hot-tempered dad but is never scary. He’s triggered by a pin drop but struggles to stay calm. He runs the “Ottoman Empire”, the family furniture business and comes home weary after a long day, wanting nothing more than to veg in front of the television in his underwear. Helpless without his wife, he’s content to let her rule the roost.

Eldest child Erica (Hayley Orrantia) is 17 years old and in rebellion mode. She’s smart and sexy and is nobody’s fool. She manipulates and beats up on her younger brothers but ultimately looks out for them.

Overly emotional, Barry (Troy Gentile) is 16 years old and has severe middle child syndrome. He’s got horrible hygiene and even worse style. Awkward around girls, he spends his free time at the Moonlight Skate Rink and free-style rapping.

Camera-wielding Adam (Sam Giambrone) is the youngest child who’s bursting with energy — and is largely ignored by his family. Nothing makes him happier than a family fight. He thinks arguing is the only way to really interact with his older siblings — since they usually won’t have anything to do with him.

Al “Pops” Solomon (George Segal) is the wild man of the clan — and the widowed grandfather. Sometimes a little senile, he’s a shameless Don Juan who’s schooling little Adam in the ways of love. He dresses in leisure suits and dates an endless parade of younger gold diggers. Pops’ grandchildren adore him while his daughter tries to mother him, something he does not appreciate.

I’ve never requested a show to stay or go before but I feel I must say something about this show. The Goldberg’s is a very funny and entertaining show. I hope it stays on for a long time to come. It’s one of my favorites.

I LOVE THIS SHOW! It is one of my all time favorites! My heart stopped when I saw it was cancelled. I’m so relieved to find out it hasn’t been. To me it is one of the best sitcoms on the air! It’s not full of filth. It is just a great show! I hope enough people watch so it won’t get canceled. Everyone on the show fits their parts perfect!!! PLEASE DON’T CANCEL THIS SHOW!!! There are very few that I really enjoy this is my absolute favorite. I love how it shows the way families should be. They fight with each other but when one of them is threatened they jump right in and help each other! Back in the 80’s it use to be more like that!

Initially I could not warm up to this series. It felt like a feeble attempt to resurrect the aura of The Wonder Years. I must admit however, it has started to grow on me and now I’m a regular viewer of the show which follows The Middle which is always worth watching.

I LOVE THIS SHOW………Our whole family loves this show. Every time we watch it my 2 kids say “omg mom, you are just like Beverly Goldberg!!!!” As I was writing to one of my daughters teachers a few days ago about something that bugged me, I realized I am just like Beverly……but that’s a good thing right!!!!!!??????
