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.

    My family watches this show every week. If we don’t catch it live, we watch on demand. I’m 17, and it’s my favorite show.

    Please keep this show on!!!! My family and I love it. We religiously watch it every week. It’s the best family comedy on right now and I love the nostalgia ( I was born in 1981).

    Please do NOT cancel this show. It is brilliantly written and it provides the best bit of nostalgia I have ever seen for the 80s…

    PLEASE do not cancel The Goldbergs! I love the show as does my 30 year old daughter who remembers things in the show for real in the late 80’s. I look forward on Tuesday nights to watch the Goldbergs and then Trophy Wife.

    Best comedy series of 2013-14! Finally a show the whole family can watch and I cannot help but laugh and enjoy – look forward to each week!

  7. Michele Williamson says

    Definitely keep it on! My family loves it! Personally, I think it is perfect to watch with our 10 and 13 year old sons. I grew up in the 80’s but even if you didn’t anyone can relate. Hilarious!

    Maybe because I grew up in the 80’s, and it does strike a chord, I LOVE IT!! One of the best shows in a looooong time.

  9. Mary says

    One of the few really funny shows. It is one of my favorites because it is so true with the pecking order of kids in a family. Keep it on.
