Just a reminder that if you haven’t done so already, it’s time to turn down the Air Supply, grab a can of Tab, and pop in a VHS tape. No, it’s not another ’80s-themed 40th birthday party — it’s tonight’s premiere of “The Goldbergs” at 9 p.m. on ABC!
The show follows a regular (and by regular we mean angry and hilarious) American suburban family that also happens to be Jewish. Their antics are tracked by the youngest Goldberg, 11-year-old Adam, who tapes the household’s nutty antics on his trusty video camera. Think “The Wonder Years,” just a lot louder and centered instead on Kevin’s Jewish best friend.
The show has been highly anticipated over here at 6NoBacon for many, many reasons:
- We can’t wait for the opportunity to be transported back to a simpler time, which, according to the show’s official description, precedes “parenting blogs, trophies for showing up, and peanut allergies.”
- It was also a time when people wore color block sweaters, high-waisted pants and acid wash. Bring it on!
- The awesome cast includes Jeff Garlin (“Curb Your Enthusiasm”), Wendi McLendon-Covey (“Bridesmaids”) and George Segal (“Just Shoot Me”).
- Finally, after an entire season of “Princesses: Long Island,” we are once again hopeful that it might be possible to relate to Jews on TV.
- It looks so much funnier than the other family comedies out this season. See for yourself.
