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 the episode "Call Me When You Get There" Beverly states Barry is lactose intolerant. However, Barry is seen drinking milk in the episodes "You're Not Invited" (where Barry drinks a half gallon glass bottle of milk in order to play "spin the bottle") and "Rush" (where Beverly makes Barry her new favorite child, and makes him eat special power chili, and drink buttermilk before hockey practice.)

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 »
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.
