Trivia

Many non-Jewish viewers are confused about what they see as conflicting signs about the family's religion. On the one hand, there are many implications and statements on the show that the Goldbergs are a Jewish family (for example, Beverly's insistence that her family should enthusiastically participate in "Super Hanukkah"), while on the other hand, they have been shown eating pork and shrimp. However, the viewers who consider their consumption of non-Kosher foods to be a sign that the Goldbergs are not Jewish are probably unaware that (according to a 2013 Pew research poll) only about twenty-two percent of Jews in the U.S. report keeping Kosher in any way.

Don't listen to the haters
4 October 2013 | by jakob-rogalskiSee all my reviews

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.
