Adam is a geeky movie loving kid from the '80s who filmed his entire childhood with his camera. His father Murray sits in his chair all day in his underpants whilst his mother Beverly cooks and smothers and his sister Erica hangs out with her popular friends and his brother Barry tries to be cool by any means possible.
Although the show is largely based on Series Creator Adam F. Goldberg's family, they had three sons: Adam, Barry, and Eric. ABC executives told the creators to make one of the siblings a girl, because the show would be funnier. So Goldberg made the siblings Adam, Barry, and Erica. See more »
In the German dubbed version of the series, Mr. Glascott's first name is Andre for the first four seasons. In season five, Beverly suddenly calls him Jim. See more »
I haven't seen a single commercial for this show, but I recognized the mom from Reno 911 and figured I would give it a shot. It's actually pretty good. Having grown up in suburban Philly in the 80's, they have pretty much nailed a typical Northeast Philly suburb. The writing is good, and the plot is fun to follow. I think you will really enjoy this show if you like smart, funny comedies you can relate to. The clothes are dead on for 1985. The house is exactly like every house I ever went into in our neighborhood, and just as tacky. The family dynamic is very familiar, and accurately represents a typical Philly family. I urge you to give this show a chance. You will more than likely see a lot of your own family in these characters.
