Did you enjoy this trip down memory lane?
ABC's new family sitcom The Goldbergs made its debut Tuesday night, bringing viewers back to the neon-tinted and big-haired days of the '80s. In the new series from Adam F. Goldberg, nostalgia and laughs go hand-in-hand as we join the titular family, which is full of zany and lovable characters, in their day-to-day life.
While we enjoyed this slightly sentimental blast from the past, we're curious to know if you'll continue to time-travel back to the '80s on a weekly basis with The Goldbergs...
Come on, how can ya not love a pilot that features an REO Speedwagon sing-along in a station wagon?!
Based on creator Goldberg's own family (as seen in the end credits), the pilot introduces us to the six members of the dysfunctional and tight-knit clan: Curb Your Enthusiasm's Jeff Garlin stars as patriarch Murray, who loves just as hard as he screams (which is a lot); Bridesmaids standout Wendi McLendon-Covey is a riot as overbearing, smothering and loving mom Beverly; Erica (Hayley Orrantia), the stereotypical teen girl who is glued to the phone and constantly rolling her eyes; classic middle child Barry (Troy Gentile), who feels misunderstood because his dad doesn't know he likes rap music; dorky Adam (Sean Giambrone), who loves to document his family with a video camera, and Pops Solomon (a lovable George Segal), the new coolest grandfather on TV.
With some laugh-out-loud one-liners ("You almost killed your father, I hope you have a happy birthday!") and great emotional scenes (Pops cutting up his license caused us to tear up!), The Goldbergs is a pretty solid addition to ABC's lineup of family comedies. It's like Modern Family meets A Christmas Story, with a splash of John Hughes.
