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.
It has been confirmed that when the show's run is close to being over, or is over, a spin-off series taking place in the 1990s will be made, focusing around Coach Meller (Bryan Callen), who is the Jenkintown High School P.E. and health teacher. 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 have to admit, that when I watched the first episode of this show, it reminded me so much of The Wonder Years that it was distracting. That being said, after episode 2 and 3, I hardly notice the narration. I think the first episode had a ton more narration because of character introductions and such, but 2 and 3 have gotten progressively funnier, and all of the 80's nostalgia is very endearing to me.
I grew up in the 80's, and this show hit's the nail on the head! The characters are believable and relate-able, the writing is very cohesive and well thought out, and the acting is very convincing and hilarious. I found myself laughing out loud over and over again.
Don't listen to all the haters. Give this show a shot and you won't be disappointed.
