Did Rick Moranis just reveal that Spaceballs 2 is not happening?
May 10th, 2018 under Mel Brooks, The Goldbergs. [ Comments: 2 ]

For almost 30 years, we have patiently waited for a sequel to Spaceballs and it looks Rick Moranis killed all hopes for it. Even though, Mel Brooks said he working on it last year.

Last night, Moranis voiced Black Helmet on The Goldbergs and the actor got a lot of love from the fans. Therefore, after the West Coast airing of the sitcom, he tweeted, “Thank you for all the love Twitter. Its not Spaceballs 2, but it’s the closest we’ll get :D.” Does that mean it is not going to happen? We do not know, but it looks to be the case.

This post is not all little shop of horrors. Moranis is taking off his hiatus chastity belt to appear on Netflix’s SCTV comedy special along with Joe Flaherty, Eugene Levy, Andrea Martin, Catherine O’Hara, Martin Short and Dave Thomas that will stream next year. It will be nice to see what he looks like under the Black Helmet these days because I miss the sweet face that gave us Seymour Krelboyne on the big screen.

Side note, if you live in Toronto or will be there this weekend, then you can still get tickets to Sunday for An Afternoon with SCTV moderated by Jimmy Kimmel.


Rick Moranis puts on the Dark Helmet for The Goldbergs tonight!
May 9th, 2018 under The Goldbergs. [ Comments: none ]

The Goldbergs got Back to the Future’s Lea Thompson to ride a Hoverboard, Weird Al Yankovic to put on a mustache and a wig, and now they are doing the impossible. It has been 20 years since Rick Moranis took a hiatus from acting, and since then he has been very very very selective about any role he might take on.

Well, I guess the Schwartz is strong with Adam F Goldberg because he got the beloved actor to reprise his Spaceballs role on The Goldbergs tonight at 8p. Sadly, we will only hear Black Helmet and not see him. But still, it is a start.

Especially if Goldberg has his way. That is because the show creator says, “I’ve been a lifelong fan of his [Moranis] work and became obsessed with having him reprise the role on my show. As an added bonus, maybe this even gets Spaceballs back in the conversation and I can get my dream of helping make a sequel!”

For almost 30 years, Mel Brooks has been teasing us with a sequel and it is about time we get it. Now would be the perfect time, since that other franchise is about to put out its last movie. Who doesn’t want Spaceballs 3 the Search for 2? That is what someone once told me it is going to be called and I believed them. Same way I believed that Jews in Space was going to be part of the History of the World sequel. It took me some time, but I finally got that joke.

Seriously, I love that Goldberg gets to live out his childhood fantasies with the sitcom. The best part is he treats them all with the respect they deserve. Can’t wait to see what he does with Val Kilmer next week.


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
January 15th, 2018 under The Goldbergs. [ Comments: none ]

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.
