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.

THAT’S WHY THE SHOW WILL FAIL! TOO CLEAN…TOO NICE! PEOPLE DON’T WANT THAT…UNFORTUNATELY…JUST LIKE THE THE MICHAEL J FOX SHOW…TOO NICE AND NO SEX, BAD LANGUAGE, ETC.

I grew up in the 80s. The show reflects the era I grew up in. Plus I grew up seeing George Segal in movies back then.

The only reason shows about the 80s get canceled is because you get young teens and young adults in their 20s who didn’t grow up back in the 80s and don’t give a damn about what went on back then. They know nothing because their parents didn’t teach them anything about the 80s. All they care about is what the next Kardashian is gonna do or marry.

Love the show. I grew up in the 80s so it’s interesting to watch a show about the era I grew up in. Plus, I grew up seeing George Segal in movies back then.

I look forward to this show every week. I DVR it so as not to miss it.
Everyone is so funny, especially the youngest boy along with his uncle.

I love The Goldbergs on ABC Funniest show I’ve seen in years. ABC has to renew it.

A very funny comedy saved to my DVR. I would compare it to The Middle in that it’s a sleeper. The more I watch it the more I enjoy seeing the characters unfold. But, I don’t think the “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D” is the best lead-in for this show. I’m glad it was renewed – hopefully in the right timeslot more people will discover The Goldbergs.
