"The Goldbergs," a popular American sitcom, follows the lives of the Goldberg family in Jenkintown, Pennsylvania, during the 1980s. The show is narrated by Adam Goldberg (played by Sean Giambrone), who shares his childhood experiences and family antics through his video camera lens.

Wendi McLendon-Covey stars as Beverly Goldberg, the matriarch of the family and an overbearing mother who loves her family fiercely. Beverly is a dedicated homemaker and excels at cooking and decorating her home. Meanwhile, Murray Goldberg (played by Jeff Garlin) is Beverly's laid-back husband who runs his own furniture store.

Their three children round out the rest of the main cast. Oldest child Erica Goldberg (played by Hayley Orrantia) is a rebellious teen aspiring to be a singer, middle child Barry Goldberg (Troy Gentile) is a teenage boy who is trying to be cool and popular, and youngest child Adam is a nerdy child who is constantly recording his family's activities with his video camera.

The show is brimming with nostalgia and references to pop culture of the 1980s. Every episode includes an opening segment that shows Adam's adventures with his best friend, Chad Kremp (played by JC Tremblay), and the rest of their schoolmates.

Along with the Goldberg family, the cast also includes George Segal as Albert "Pops" Solomon, Beverly's father, who often spoils his grandchildren while providing sage advice to his children, and Patton Oswalt as Trevor "Doc" Robbins, a narrator who provides additional commentary throughout the show.

"The Goldbergs" not only focuses on the family's daily antics but also tackles serious issues such as parents' trust in children and coming out to family, but always in a comical fashion. Each episode revolves around a specific theme such as family vacations, school dances, and holidays, often punctuated with Beverly's signature catchphrase "I told two friends, and they told two friends, and so on!"

Throughout the seasons, "The Goldbergs" introduces many notable guest stars and recurring characters. Emmy-winner Bryan Callen appears as Coach Mellor, the gym teacher who has a soft spot for Barry, and Sam Lerner plays Geoff Schwartz, Erica's school friend who eventually becomes her love interest. Odell Jackson also stars as Ari Caldwell, a schoolmate of Adam and Chad.

"The Goldbergs" first premiered on ABC in September 2013 and quickly became a hit among fans of all ages, thanks to its witty script, charming cast, and relatable family dynamics. The show wrapped up its eighth and final season in May 2021 after a total of 171 episodes.

Overall, "The Goldbergs" is a heartwarming and hilarious show that captures the essence of growing up in the 1980s while also being a relatable depiction of family life. Fans of the show can now enjoy all eight seasons on DVD and streaming platforms, courtesy of Shout Factory.
