ABC rights a wrong and picks up the ’90something Goldbergs’ spinoff
April 16th, 2018 under The Goldbergs. [ Comments: none ]

Last year, ABC ordered a spinoff from The Goldbergs set a decade later aka the ’90s, but they mistakenly did not pick it up. The three new, non-revival, sitcoms they did pick up did not or are not doing that well in the ratings. Which probably is one of the reasons why they realized that they made a mistake. Therefore, they announced today that the spinoff will be on the lineup in the fall.

That and back in January, when they aired the pilot, it did better in the ratings than most of their other sitcoms on ABC. Plus, they should know they have a goldmine with Adam F Goldberg. He creates the shows that families can watch together and there are not that many shows you can say that about these days.

So what is the spinoff going to be about? Tim Meadows will continue on as Principal Glascott of William Penn Academy and Coach Mellor (Bryan Callen) will still be coaching but without any Goldbergs as students. I will miss him on the mothership, but I like that we will be getting more time with the gym coach we all had when we were growing. There is one addition to the show next season and that is Lainey Lewis (AJ Michalka) is joining the show as a teacher. Which makes me think that she and Barry will not be getting together.

As of now, the sitcom does not have a name or a timeslot, but I am assuming it will air after The Goldbergs. At least if they are smart, and they gained some IQ points by finally picking up the show.

I love underdog stories, especially when they happen to good people like Adam F Goldberg. You know his sMother is kvelling so hard right now as she should be! Mazel tov!

UPDATE: Here is what Adam F Goldberg wrote about it getting picked up, “Beyond thrilled that I get to write about my teachers in 1990something and that the amazing Lainey @alyandaj will be at the center in the new version. This happened cause the @goldnerds kept bringing this up to ABC for the last 2 years! So THANK YOU all for the undying support!” Proving fans do have a voice and the networks should listen to us.

Wendi McLendon-Covey has worn a lot of decorative sweaters on The Goldbergs, but there is one that is her favorite. Who doesn’t love Mariachi Cows? You would never think they would work on a sweater, but they do! And we love those sweaters as much as we love The Goldbergs!


The real Beverly Goldberg responds to Dinner with The Goldbergs

On the last episode of The Goldbergs, Adam F Goldberg revealed to us what it was like to eat at a restaurant with his family in the ’80something. The best way to put it, is they do the things you are not supposed to when you eat out. Things like steal the dinner rolls, take forever to order, send the food back and that is not all of it. Not even close.

It almost seems like it a pure fiction, you know since it is a scripted television. Although Adam F Goldberg kept assuring us that all of this really happened, and you were like nah. Even when he showed us the actual videos of his family at restaurant, we still did not fully believe him.

You know who we will believe? The sMother herself, Beverly Goldberg. Yesterday she Tweeted, “Just got back from our cruise & watched last weeks episode Dinner with the Goldbergs. OMG Adam I’m killing you All our secrets revealed.” Then she posted a photo and that reads, “hilarious.”

Yes it is. In fact, I think she should start a business and charge people to experience the real Dinner with The Goldbergs. After watching that episode, I so wanted to eat with them to see what it was really like. My family and I always has normal meals in public. I want to know what it is like not to. How much would you pay to eat with Beverly Goldberg?

Too bad Beefsteak Charlie’s is no longer around because that would be even more perfect.


The Goldberg Girls do the Bohemian Rhapsody head bop!
January 10th, 2018 under The Goldbergs. [ Comments: none ]

Last week, we feel in love with The Goldberg Girls on the ABC sitcom based in the ’80something. This week we are loving Wendi McLendon-Covey, Stephanie Courtney, Jennifer Irwin and Mindy Sterling as the four of them recreated a scene from the ’90something movie, Wayne’s World, with that ’70something song Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen. Got all those decades?

Anyways, unlike last Wednesday when what they was for work, this time what they did was for fun in between takes. You know, it was between because they wanted to make sure their wigs stayed on. While they made their fake hair go crazy!

Just like we are all crazy for them and The Goldbergs. Don’t forget to tune in tonight at 8p on ABC.


The real Goldbergs Girls with the TV version of them

Tonight on 8p on The Goldbergs on ABC, Beverly Goldberg tries to make some friends and forms a Golden Girls type friendship. Friendships that have lasted since the ’80something in real life.

I know this because above is the real Beverly Goldberg with the other three ladies, Essie Karp, Gina Kremp & Linda Schwartz, who make up The Goldberg Girls. Tonight the real life women make a cameo on the show that portrays them 3 decades ago.

When it comes to who portrays them in the past, Goldberg is of course Wendi McLendon-Covey, Stephanie Courtney makes her Goldbergs debut as Karp, Jennifer Irwin once again plays Kremp and Mindy Sterling continues as Schwartz. I cannot wait to see how they handle it all because here’s how the real Adam F Goldberg previewed it, “This episode is hands down the best of the season so far — and maybe among the best of the series.”

Personally, I thought that the We Didn’t See the Fire was the best episode of the season. Thus if he is saying it is better, it must be. I think we can all agree is the best episode of 2018 so far. Therefore, tune in or the real Beverly Goldberg will nag you until you do. She won’t but doesn’t it sound like something she would do.
