The Goldbergs

First episode is on tonight after SHIELD.



Single camera comedy about a family living in the 80's.

Jeff Garlin is hilarious, good to see George Segal (the boss from Just Shoot Me) back in a leading role again as well.

My ex-GF belongs to one of those sites where they send out samples of foods or products and then she will send in a review of those products. It's pretty interesting as she receives some really cool stuff and sometimes she would get something that ended up not getting released. Anyway - last summer she received a disc with the first 2 episodes of The Goldbergs. I really liked Jeff Garlin's work on Curb Your Enthusiasm and since we both were fans of The Wonder Years we ended up liking the show and gave it a positive review. One big strike against this show finding a big enough audience is that it goes up against New Girl and The Voice.

I thought it was pretty good. Garlin is always good for some laughs for sure.

I was pretty surprised when I found out who was doing the narration for this show. I'm usually pretty good at picking out actor voices but this one had me stumped.

Wendi McClendon-Covey and George Segal definitely two people deserving of big roles in a sitcom. Thought it was pretty good, and I'm usually not into this kind of show.

Be honest - could you tell it was him or did you have to look it up like I had to.

I gotta say, while I absolutely loved the pilot and the commercial I saw last night of them at the roller rink had me laughing so hard I pissed myself... I worry about how long a show like this can keep their schtick up and stay funny.


Whoever it is they casted as the son, he freaking makes this show. I love Garlin, but the son sets Garlin up so incredibly well in this show.

Within the opening sentence of the show, I recognized him. I catch him doing other voiceovers pretty qiuckly too; to me his voice is very recognizable

Watched the first few minutes with my family. They didn't like it so I will continue episode 1 by myself.

I want to like this show, and the first episode was hilarious... but it just doesn't set up well for a weekly show, and is pretty terrible. Oh well..

ABC Gives Full Seasons to The Goldbergs / Trophy Wife, More Episodes of Super Fun Night; Back in the Game Cancelled
ABC decides the fate of their new comedies.



Quote:

Late Friday, ABC made decisions on all of their recently-debuted freshman comedies, reports THR. It was happy news for the Tuesday night duo of The Goldbergs and Trophy Wife, both of which received full season orders - no doubt helped by the fact that both shows held up well this week when airing new episodes without a new installment of Agents of SHIELD (which has already been given a full season) as a lead-in for the first time.

A more cautious approach was given to the Rebel Wilson comedy Super Fun Night, which has had four more episodes ordered on top of its initial 13, but not a full 22-episode order as yet.

The news wan't good for Back in the Game though. The James Caan / Maggie Lawson series was not given any additional episodes and will end after its thirteenth episode. Which likely means Suburgatory will be returning to take its place on Wednesday nights in a couple of months...
