Trivia

Many non-Jewish viewers are confused about what they see as conflicting signs about the family's religion. On the one hand, there are many implications and statements on the show that the Goldbergs are a Jewish family (for example, Beverly's insistence that her family should enthusiastically participate in "Super Hanukkah"), while on the other hand, they have been shown eating pork and shrimp. However, the viewers who consider their consumption of non-Kosher foods to be a sign that the Goldbergs are not Jewish are probably unaware that (according to a 2013 Pew research poll) only about twenty-two percent of Jews in the U.S. report keeping Kosher in any way.

Heartwarming & Charming
11 October 2013 | by siysSee all my reviews

I believe it depends on what type family you grew up with whether you enjoy this program or not; and although my family was not exactly like this, nor did we grow up in the 80s, The Goldbergs is quite charming and each episode has struck a nerve with this viewer and tugged at my heartstrings.

The fact that Adam F. Goldberg is culling story lines from actual family life experiences gives this series a sense of realism other shows lack. Further, it is driven by sincerity, rather than dependent on trying too hard for a quota of laughs.

The Goldbergs is a winner, which I highly recommend.

A word for The Goldbergs bashers: It's OK, to turn off the intellect and take an emotional ride and enjoy life, rather than looking for flaws in an effort to project your superiority.
