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.

This show is great since i grew up in the 80’s i can relate to a lot of the stuff that Adam does and goes through in the show. I will definitely boycott ABC if they cancel the Goldbergs. I dislike it when Networks cancel good shows with out giving them a chance, like i said if ABC cancels this show than it will be the straw that broke the Camels back!

One of the best sit-comes on TV.
Would be even better if the writers got their time-lines straight. Such as in last nights episode that supposidely scripted around the 1984 Presidential election between Regan and Mondale. The glitch in that episode was Barry’s obsession with TV’s American Gladiators,” which didn’t debut on television until 1989.

I agree Steve, I’ve noticed stuff like that a few times but for the most part there pretty spot on. I agree one of the best sit-comes on TV.

I will stop watching ABC if they cancel this intelligent,hysterical family show. Wednesday nights, is the only night I make sure I’m home to catch the Goldbergs (The Middle also). Funny and smart, laugh out loud, laugh till you cry……
