The Goldbergs book a killer guest for the Halloween episode
September 21st, 2018 under The Goldbergs. [ Comments: none ]

When The Goldbergs ended last season, they got Rick Moranis to reprise his role of Dark Helmut from Spaceballs. This season, they have another 1980somthing legend reprising his role in disguise for Halloween. One that has been haunting our nightmares since 1984. Of course, it is Robert Englund, but you probably know him as Freddy Krueger.

The ABC sitcom broke the news today, and I am so excited because I love the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise. But I am surprised that the real Adam F. Goldberg went there because yesterday he tweeted this about Englund retiring from the role, “NO! There’s only one Freddy! Robert Englund can’t retire! Elm Street 3 scared the CRAP out of me when I was a kid. I was so terrified I slept in the hallway for a week, but then became a superfan. Someone has to do something to keep the nightmares alive!” To me, 3 was the best one and so not scary. I laughed at some of the kills like the girl who got her chance to be in TV and the roach motel girl. So funny.

It is not about me, it about another great get for The Goldbergs. Although, why is it whenever these actors reprise their characters on the show, they declare they will never do them again? Things that make you go hmmmm? Oh, wait that is a song from the ’90somthing.

Anyways, The Goldbergs pays homage to Sixteen Candles for Adam’s 16th birthday next Wednesday on ABC.


Adam and his sMother recreate that Sixteen Candles moment!
September 14th, 2018 under The Goldbergs. [ Comments: none ]

There are many memorable moments from Sixteen Candles. There is the underwear scene, the hair trapped in the door one, the Long Duck Dong sharing an exercise bike moment, but the most iconic one comes at the very end of the movie. That is when Sam and Jake share a birthday cake on a table.

I never thought anyone could ever ruin my teenage fantasy of being on that table with Michael Schoeffling, but looks The Goldbergs is going to do it on the season premiere that pays homage to the cult favorite on September 26th. You know what, I am OK with it. That is because I know Adam F. Goldberg will make just as satisfying. Well, not satisfying in that way because no parent should be the Jake Ryan. And as we know, Beverly Goldberg is not your average mom. That is why we love her and the sitcom that is based in 1980something.

UPDATE: The Goldbergs recreates a Farmer Ted moment with Dave Kim. To see which one, then click here!


Rick Springfield gets his 1980’something on for The Goldbergs
August 24th, 2018 under Rick Springfield, The Goldbergs. [ Comments: none ]

Back in the ’80s, Rick Springfield was all about not talking to strangers, Jessie’s Girl and playing a doctor on General Hospital. You can say he was Hard to Hold.

Now in 2018, he is going back to the ’80s to play the owner of a Karaoke bar on The Goldbergs. The announcement was made yesterday and as soon as the rocker blew out the 69 candles on his birthday cake, he shared a photo from the set.

The ABC sitcom’s costume department did not style him like he styled himself back in the day. Instead he is wearing a leopard print scarf on his head and a brown shiny suit. Which is a good thing because, I am sure, the show did not want him to look like the poster on Erica’s wall. That would be very confusing.

Now back to Erica, I mean Hayley Orrantia and her TV sMother Wendi McLendon-Covey; they both looked thrilled to share the stage with the rock star. Can you blame? He is still groovy to the max even though he is 364 days away from turning 70. On that note, to see him celebrating his birthday on the set, then click here!


Rick Springfield celebrates his ’80s youth on The Goldbergs

Last season, Rick Moranis guest starred on The Goldbergs and this year they got another Rick from the era to be on the sitcom. This one is Springfield, Rick Springfield. Although some people call him Bruce.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the rocker will be Erica’s boss at a Karaoke bar called Gary-oke’s! Hopefully, we will see him singing one of his hits Karaoke style. How like totally awesome would that be?

How does the man who wants Jessie’s Girl feel about it? He said, “Alright! At last I get to play a guy from the ‘80s. I’m excited to guest star on ‘The Goldbergs’ and return back to 1980-something!”

Even though today is his 69th birthday, he still looks exactly like he in the decade that The Goldbergs take place in.

Talking about time, the show will be back with all-new episodes on September 26th and the season premiere pays homage to Sixteen Candles.


The Goldbergs forget Adam’s Sixteen Candles!
August 7th, 2018 under The Goldbergs. [ Comments: none ]

The Goldbergs are back on September 26th for their sixth season premiere and they are celebrating another six. As in Adam’s (Sean Giambrone) 16th birthday. That is if they can remember it.

Why can’t they remember it? That is because his parents (Wendi McLendon-Covey and Jeff Garlin) are busy dealing with Barry (Troy Gentile) and Lainey’s engagement news, and Erica’s (Hayley Orrantia) band dreams. Who has time for the monumental birthday with all of that going on? Not the Goldbergs, so Adam is sADAMantha for the day. I wonder who will get his underwear? You can’t do a Sixteen Candles homage without that scene. Can you?

Now if Adam F Goldberg really wants to make the episode special, he can get Michael Schoeffling to guest star on the episode. That would be a bigger get than getting Rick Moranis to be part of the Spaceballs themed episode.

BTW since the 6th season premiere episode airs on September 26th and it is celebrating Sixteen Candles, that is three sixes as in 666. Creepy right?
