Watch The Goldbergs

The Goldbergs is a family friendly comedy set in the 1980s. The show focuses on a traditional nuclear family with three children. There are two teenage boys and a girl set in the middle. The father, Murray, played by Jeff Garlin works at a furniture store and lounges in his beloved lazy boy while at home. The mother, Beverly, is often overbearing and constantly interfering in her children's lives; as many of us swear our own mothers were. George Segal plays the aging grandfather.

The stories are told from the point of view of the youngest child, Adam, who can be considered a geek and is devoted to much of the pop culture that we remember from the 1980s. For example he has a replica of Castle Grayskull in his room and a Star Wars poster on his door. His sister, Erica, does not have the huge bangs that were popular in the 1980s, but she does often sport leggings and the high ponytail. The oldest child, Barry, is devoted to all of the sports trends that were popular at the time.
