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.
In season one, episode fifteen, "Muscles Mirsky", Pops suggests Adam watches When Harry Met Sally... (1989) for tips on how best friends can be of the opposite sex. This movie didn't release until 1989, which sets a late 1989 date for the show. See more »
Many misplacings of 80s cultural items throughout the series are intentionally done by the show's creator, Adam F Goldberg. 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!
