About The Goldbergs
The Goldbergs is set in the 1980s in Jenkintown, Pennsylvania and shows the reality of the ’80s through a preadolescent’s, and later in the series, teenager’s, eyes. The show is loosely based on the showrunner’s childhood, during which he regularly videotaped events – many of these videos are reenacted throughout the program, with the original version then shown before the end credits.
The series stars Jeff Garlin as patriarch Murray and Wendi McLendon-Covey as matriarch Beverly. Their two older children are Erica (Hayley Orrantia) and Barry (Troy Gentile). The youngest child, Adam (Sean Giambrone), documents his family life with his video camera. Beverly’s father, Albert “Pops” Solomon (George Segal), is frequently around to provide advice or to help out his grandchildren (often behind his daughter’s back).
The present-day “Adult Adam” (Patton Oswalt) narrates every episode as taking place in “1980-something”. The show’s episodes are frequently built around the era’s pop culture in a non-chronological order, and each season contains references from throughout the decade.
Many references to real-life Philadelphia-area businesses are made, including the Wawa convenience store chain, Gimbel’s department store, Willow Grove Park Mall, and Kremp’s Florist of Willow Grove, Pennsylvania. Additionally, several 1980s cultural icons guest star as themselves on the show and a number of figures from Goldberg’s actual life guest star as fictional characters.
