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.
One of Adam F. Goldberg's friends saw some of his videos and convinced Adam in 2006 to make a show about his family but said his family was too crazy. After his first show got canceled, "Breaking In" he tried to think of a show to make. Then, he remembered what his friend said and made "The Goldbergs" on ABC See more »
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 »
A good honest well acted comedy that is also funny!
A late (2nd season) quick review.
This is a very good family sitcom based on the actual life of its writer when he was a teenager. The presentation of the show is using the narration of an older version of himself with emphasis in the specific characteristics of the 80s that leaves a nostalgic feeling for the era.
No fake laughs (live or prerecorded) here.
Exceptional casting. True to life situations. Funny in a good way (without being ridiculous or vulgar like other comedies out there). Honest to the heart.
In a sentence: Watch it and you wont be disappointed!
