Anyone Else Watching ABC's The Goldbergs?

Recommended Posts

I love this show. Every episode is like a jumble of 80's goodness. It's based on the creator's real life growing up in the 80's. One of the more recent episodes called "You're Under Foot" featured a whole bunch of 80's toys, and even dedicated the episode to Megatron at the end.

 

Here's some screen captures:

This episode had pretty much every major toy line from the 80's...Thundercats, Transformers, GI Joe, MOTU...and even mentioned quite a few things by name like Skeletor, Castle Grayskull, The USS Flagg, Lion-O and Cheetara.

 

If you haven't been watching, I would suggest it to anyone who is on these boards. I'm sure you'll love it just for all of the 80's nostalgia if nothing else.

My friend phoned me while this episode was on and told me I had to tune in. It was pretty good.

 

One unforgivable mistake, however: Take a look at the last picture with the kid and the USS Flag, towards the top behind the railing, that's Star Brigade Roadblock...A 90's FIGURE! @smilepunch@

I noticed in the video rental episode a few weeks ago, they tried to pass off a Clone Wars stand-up as a Star Wars/Droids display; I didn't catch it at first, lol.

 

It's a pretty funny show, like a 1980's Wonder Years

i'm sure it's hard to find interns/staffers who really know their 80's stuff, so they make due with what they can get their hands on.

 

verizon fios has the series on demand, so you can still catch older episodes.

The adult characters are annoying, especially the old man!!! But I did catch this one episode by chance. Loved seeing all the old toys a la the old days!! **sigh** memories!!

I think the adults are portrayed that way on purpose...almost as caricatures of their real life counterparts. After all, these are supposed to be the memories of the writer from his childhood...so I would imagine it's how he perceived them when he was young.

That 70's Show did the same thing, The Power FX X-Wing and Vader's TIE became Eric's 'models', modern figures became 70's era figures, and the POTF2 Falcon carry case became Eric's Falcon, lol

Sometimes during the closing credits they do show videos of the real family from back then.
