A running joke throughout the series, is that Adam goes by the name "Adam F. Goldberg", because there is another Adam Goldberg at the school. This is a reference to the fact that Adam F. Goldberg shares the name of another Adam Goldberg in the Screen Actors Guild, known for such movies as Saving Private Ryan (1998) and A Beautiful Mind (2001). See more »
Many misplacings of 80s cultural items throughout the series are intentionally done by the show's creator, Adam F Goldberg. 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.
