Before there were parenting blogs, trophies for showing up, and peanut allergies, there was a simpler time called the '80s. For geeky 11-year old Adam these were his wonder years and he faced them armed with a video camera to capture all the crazy. Written by
Shares name with one of TV's earliest TV sitcoms The Goldbergs (1949) of 1949. The pilot is the only episode that listed a specific year. After that one, the narrator would always state "it was 1980-something..." This was done so the writers could use any '80s references without worrying about what year they were representing.

In several episodes the local convenience store Wawa is advertising beer and liquor. In Pennsylvania only "state stores" are permitted to sell liquor. See more »
It is quite unusual for me to laugh very hard, when I am watching an episode of a show. But with The Goldbergs I was cracking up by the first half of the first episode, I could not resist to write my first review on IMDb.
You should ignore some early wannabe critics for hating something about this show. It is brilliantly cast, played and written. The timing of the jokes is spot on. After a few minutes you need to pause the episode to get yourself together again.
If you need some references for the style of the show: It's a brilliant mix of Curb your Enthusiasm's angryness and The Wonder Year's nostalgia.
Pleas watch the first episode to see it for yourself. The Goldbergs could be the next big thing in comedy.
