Last night I watched the 'Stephan King' episode; oh how Sweet were Erica and Geoff? Barry in the Audrey 2 suit and as for Adam crawling up the stairs a la misery. grin
I know it has faults, but it is the only program that is making me laugh at the moment.

I love it too. The whole 80s theme is done so well. Also the real life video clips are so funny.

Beverly Goldberg is idol

I love it too. Especially the real clips at the end.

ahh my people grin I absolutely love the Goldbergs it is my favourite show, it makes it even better that it is based on a real family, I can't fault it really!!
love all the characters and the actors have great chemistry.

I love it too, especially being a teen of the 80's and loving all the music! It's very similar to The Wonder Years (why is this never shown on TV? sad).

Yes they are a real family but Erica is a made up sister. Love them all and all the 'side' characters, Pops, Dave Kim, Lainey, Coach Mellor.

My favourite episode was the NKOTB one grin

Love it!grin

It is one of the best comedy shows on tv at the moment, I love it.

TheresABluebirdOnMyShoulder Sat 28-Jan-17 22:54:53

It's brilliant, one of my favourite shows right now. DH says he feels sorry for our DC as they get older because I am most definitely a "smother" in the making. I bloody love Beverley.

TheresABluebirdOnMyShoulder Sat 28-Jan-17 22:55:29

How funny is Pops too? He has some cracking lines.

FlyingFordAnglia Sat 28-Jan-17 23:02:15

Love the show. One of the few things on at the moment that actually makes me laugh. My DS1 calls me Beverley if I'm wanting huggies and snuggies, not to mention nubbies. I love it! He also (unintentionally) has the same jacket Barry wore in one episode and was hmm how it was in fashion first in the 80's!
Favourite scene has to be professor glascot talking about his parrot he can't get rid of. I don't know why but that cracks me up every time!

One of my favourite tv programmes at the moment, I grew up in the 80s so love all the film and music references. Love Barry and the JTP.
My DCs call my Bevvy, which I naturally take as a compliment.

CurbsideProphet Sat 28-Jan-17 23:08:09

I love The Goldbergs! I'm glad E4 aren't messing about with it like Big Bang. It's different to other "comedy shows" and the mix of reality, especially when people from the actual event have cameos, is very clever and fun

Parmaviolets13 Sat 28-Jan-17 23:23:47

Oh my goodness I didn't realise Erica and lainey were fictional?! I had always wondered why there was never video clips of Erica :-(

APlaceOnTheCouch Sat 28-Jan-17 23:27:09

I love it. Although I must admit I cried at the Dirty Dancing episode blush
It made me laugh when they brought in the running joke about the other Adam Goldberg after the actor with that name was so arsey to him. grin

Redcrayons Sat 28-Jan-17 23:27:35

Erica is actually Eric irl.

hugoagogo Sat 28-Jan-17 23:31:44

I love Erica though, she is such rather great character.
I was talking to dh earlier and saying Erica is great and Beverley and yeah Adam and Barry and Murray and Pops... it really is a great ensemble piece isn't it, I struggle to find a week link?!

Tokelau Sat 28-Jan-17 23:32:00

I love this show, it's one of my favourites.

hugoagogo Sat 28-Jan-17 23:33:56

Oh ffs typos all over the shop! I may have over done the wine

FriteFuaite Sat 28-Jan-17 23:39:08

Oh I love it, too! I think this series is great, I love the real life bits at the end. Beverly's jumpers are amazing grin

Destinysdaughter Sat 28-Jan-17 23:41:45

Ooh I tweeted real life Beverley and she replied! ❤️

MyWhatICallNameChange Sat 28-Jan-17 23:42:02

Oh yay! I love The Goldbergs too. I keep telling my kids I'll go into school and stalk them, talk to their teachers and I chase them for snuggies and nubbies. grin

I love the real videos at the end and when they have his old school friends play someone.

Fantastic, all the time.

NurseRosie Sat 28-Jan-17 23:43:39

One of my favs atm. It is so true to mad family life, so relatable while being absolutely hilarious. Im hoping to be the next Beverley "smother" Goldberg to my children. I loved the Christmas/Hannukah episode recently, so funny.

PonderLand Sat 28-Jan-17 23:46:17

Love that show! Especially Beverley, I hope I'm just as much a smother to my DS.
