The Goldbergs is a popular American comedy television series that premiered on ABC in 2013 and ran for eight seasons, concluding in 2021. The show is set in the 1980s and revolves around the daily life of the eccentric Goldbergs family in Jenkintown, Pennsylvania.

The series stars Wendi McLendon-Covey as Beverly Goldberg, the matriarch of the Goldberg family, who is overprotective, fiercely loyal, and often overbearing but with a heart of gold. Jeff Garlin plays her husband Murray, a gruff and pragmatic father who spends most of his time at work, trying to keep his family financially stable. They have three children - Adam (Sean Giambrone), Barry (Troy Gentile), and Erica (Hayley Orrantia).

Adam is the youngest of the three siblings and the central character of the series. He is a budding filmmaker who obsessively documents his family's lives with his new video camera. Barry is the middle child, a wannabe tough guy with big dreams of being a professional wrestler. Erica is the eldest sibling, a high school student who is trying to figure out her place in the world.

The Goldbergs also features a host of other recurring characters, including George Segal as Albert Solomon, Murray's father and the owner of a store called "JTP," where Adam and his friends often hang out. Patton Oswalt provides the voiceover narration for adult Adam Goldberg, who looks back at his childhood with both nostalgia and humor. Noah Munck plays Adam's best friend and wrestling partner "Naked" Rob Smith, while Kenny Ridwan and Casey Simpson play his other friends Dave Kim and Chad Kremp.

Throughout the series, viewers see the Goldbergs navigate through various family and personal issues, often drawing inspiration for storytelling from show creator Adam F. Goldberg's own life experiences. The show tackles relatable themes of family values, friendship, growing up, adolescence, and the challenges of being a teenager.

One of the most notable aspects of The Goldbergs is its use of humor and pop culture references from the 1980s. The show is known for its frequent montage sequences showcasing iconic music videos, films, TV commercials, and other cultural touchstones of the decade. From Adam's obsession with Star Wars to Beverly's love for the TV show Dynasty, the series transports viewers back in time to a simpler era.

The Goldbergs was well received by critics and audiences alike, with praise for its humor, heart, and nostalgia factor. The show spawned a spin-off series called Schooled, which aired for two seasons on ABC from 2019-2020. Schooled follows the lives of some of the teachers and staff at the William Penn Academy, the school where Beverly, Murray, and their friends attended as teenagers.

In conclusion, The Goldbergs is a heartwarming and humorous portrayal of family and adolescence in the 1980s. With a talented cast, clever writing, and a love for all things 80s, the show became a beloved classic during its eight-year run. For those who grew up during the decade, the series is sure to bring back fond memories of neon colors and big hair. For everyone else, it's a fun and entertaining journey into the past.

The Goldbergs is a series that is currently running and has 10 seasons (232 episodes). The series first aired on September 24, 2013.
