The Goldbergs will pay tribute to John Hughes in its season premiere!
June 13th, 2017 under The Goldbergs. [ Comments: none ]

Back in ’80something, girls all over the world were prepared for the 16th birthday thanks to Molly Ringwald in Sixteen Candles. High School students wanted to do weekend detention like they did in Breakfast Club. Boys were hoping they could create the perfect woman like they did in Weird Science. Teen girls all wanted a best friend like Jon Cryer and Andrew McCarthy for her boyfriend like in Pretty in Pink. We were hoping our parents would go away and leave us alone with Uncle Buck. And talking about vacations, were you afraid that parents might leave you Home Alone?

What do all of those things have in common? John Hughes! What represents the ’80s today, The Goldbergs and for their season premiere they are going to dedicate an episode to him. The show’s creator, whose totally rad life the show is based on, broke the news on Twitter yesterday. Adam F Goldberg said, “It’s time for me to write our 1st ep which is a John Hughes homage.”

The sitcom, that is going into its 5th season, has already done totally awesome and very respectable tributes episodes to The Breakfast Club and Ferris Bueller’s Days Off, so I cannot wait to see what he does to honor the late genius behind it all during the season premiere in September.

BTW on an ’80s note, when are we going to get the Benetton Rugby episode? We need to bring them back!

What ’80s iconic film, TV show, singer, event or item, do you wish The Goldbergs would tackle next?


Imaginary Mary is better than you can imagine
March 29th, 2017 under Jenna Elfman, The Goldbergs. [ Comments: none ]

Imaginary Mary makes its real debut tonight at 8:30p on ABC, and you want to check out the latest sitcom from The Goldberg’s Adam F Goldberg.

Alice (Jenna Elfman) is a workaholic Sport Public Relations Guru who never wanted kids. Then she meets and falls in love with a man (Stephen Schneider) with who has 3 of them. Now, she has to try to get to know the kids she doesn’t want from the man she does want.

How will she do it? With the help from her old friend, who got her through her childhood, Imaginary Mary. She is a smart talking imaginary friend who is not the person, or should I say friend, you want to have help you out.

Alice is not the girl she used to be, so she listens but does not always take Mary’s advice. Which is good because not all of it works on Ben’s kids. There’s rebellious teenager (Matreya Scarrwener) and she will be the hardest one to break. Wannabe Andy (Nicholas Coombe) who needs help to become a man, and Alice will be that person. Not in a sexual way, but toughening him up. Finally, there is sweet little Bunny (Erica Tremblay) who immediately falls in love with Alice. But is that enough?

It will be a learning curve for the 6 of them, but as long as they have each other it will all work out. Just like this show that makes you want to watch it with your imaginary friend. Admit it we all have one and they have been waiting for something to watch with you since Drop Dead Fred.


Wax on The Goldbergs son tonight!
March 1st, 2017 under The Goldbergs, Wax Figure. [ Comments: none ]

Back in the ’80somethings kids and teens were in love with The Karate Kid. Most of us were Daniel sons, while others were Johnnys. Tonight at 8p on ABC’s The Goldbergs, you will see the whole family become them.

The other Adam Goldberg (Oliver Cooper) at Adam F Goldberg’s (Sean Giambrone) school wants his name back and threatens our Adam to give it back to him. The other Adam challenges our Adam to a fight and Barry (Troy Gentile) comes up with a brilliant idea for them to battle it out at school. That idea is for the two of them to do Kara-te like they do in The Karate Kids movie. Only problem is our Adam doesn’t know how to do it. Luckily Barry knows a Mr Miyago who can help him out. Will it be enough for our Adam to keep his name. What will happen when Bev (Wendi McLendon-Covey) finds out about the match?

Then there is Erica (Hayley Orrantia) and Geoff (Sam Lerner), who are still trying to figure things out after they shared that passionate kiss. Will they become the couple they are meant to be? Let’s just say they realize they have more in common with one of the actors from The Karate Kid than they thought. Will that help them make their decision?

One decision that is easy, is tuning into The Goldbergs is always the right thing to do!

Make sure not to tune of the episode after we get see the real Barry do his Kara-te because there is a nice surprise for Karate Kids fans at the very end!


The Goldbergs go Punk tonight and so much more!
February 22nd, 2017 under The Goldbergs. [ Comments: none ]

Lainey (AJ Michalka) wants Barry (Troy Gentile) to go Punk and he does. But tonight at 8p on ABC’s The Goldbergs you will see he is too nice to take on that hard core image. Because of that you will be laughing hysterically with him as he completely changes up his image.

Then there is Adam (Sean Giambrone), who watches his childhood friend, RD Robb, make his acting debut in A Christmas Story. Robb’s mother is his hometown’s talent manager and Bev (Wendi McLendon-Covey) knows her. Thus, Adam asks his mom to help him get his acting reel to Edie (Susie Essman) and see if she will take him on as a client. Bev wants her son to be a star, so she does it. Only problem is Bev thinks her son is a Swayze and Edie thinks he is a nerd. Will that difference kill Adam’s acting career before it even started? What will Bev do to change Edie’s mind?

Finally, there is Erica (Hayley Orrantia) and she feels like her dad doesn’t know anything about her. She is right. Pops (George Segal) tell Murray (Jeff Garlin) that Erica has a crush on Geoff Schwartz (Sam Lerner) and her dad tries to make a love connection between the two. Only problem is he tells the wrong boy who also has a crush on Erica. What happens next will have you laughing because she gets Top Gunned. Then what happens after that will leave you applauding. Then what happens after that will make you want to call your dad and tell him you love him!

Tonight’s The Goldbergs is the best one of the season. It is so full of love you will just want to hug it. It is one of those episodes that leaves you feeling good for days to come.

And make sure to watch it all the way through for a really nice surprise!!!


BTWF roles: Jeff Garlin in Spring Break
January 4th, 2017 under Before They Were Famous, The Goldbergs. [ Comments: none ]

Before Jeff Garlin called his kids morons on The Goldbergs, he acted like one in Spring Break. What a cute butt the 20 year old had in that 1983 movie!
