Shares its name with an early sitcom The Goldbergs (1949). The pilot is the only episode that listed a specific year. After that one, the narrator would always state "it was 1980-something..." This was done so the writers could use any '80s references without worrying about what year they were representing. See more »
While not impossible, it is very unlikely that a grandfather who served in WWII would have a grandchild as old as Erica during the 1980's (even Barry and Adam are pushing it) . See more »
Its about time we get a great show like this! It reminds me so much of The Wonder Years (One of my favourite shows of all times). It is funny, all the actors are fantastic and have great chemistry together. After 3 episodes it quickly became my new favourite show. At the end of each episode there is a clip of the real family it is based on (Adam Goldberg) which I love. I think this is why the show works so great, is because its based on a real family and real stories. So many shows and movies you watch and there isn't anything realistic about it, so they are entertaining but not something you can relate to. That is not the case with this show, and that is why it reminds me so much of The Wonder Years. It mixes comedy with story telling. I can't rave about this show enough, and I will be FURIOUS if it gets cancelled.
