The Goldbergs 3×23 ‘Big Orange’: ‘That’s Garfield’

All I wanted to do after this week’s episode of The Goldbergs was call my little brother can tell him I love him. Tears fell from my face thanks to Erica and Adam’s mystery solving duo, but I was also taken aback by the all-around lesson in having to let go to move on. Kendra […]


The Goldbergs 3×22 ‘Smother’s Day’: Fisting Friends

After a look behind the scenes of The Goldbergs last week, things were back to normal and what we got was an Adam/Barry moment that could very well beat what we seen between them in “The Lost Boy.” Oh yeah, and it was Mother’s Day, but somehow two of the Goldberg kids managed to forget, […]


The Goldbergs 3×21 ‘Rush’: On trend

Rush is apparently a band that only resonated for those who legit grew up in the 80’s because I had no clue who they were until I Love You, Man. If it hadn’t been for that movie, then I would’ve heard about them tonight thanks to The Goldbergs. Erica discovered her rock roots didn’t have […]


The Goldbergs 3×20 ‘Dungeons and Dragons, Anyone?’: Gym class heroes

Patton Oswalt had to be stoked to narrate this week as The Goldbergs took on Dungeons and Dragons. While Adam learned the importance of friendship battling tree people and whatever, Beverly and Murray had to learn that “letting go is more important that holding on” when it came to Erica and her decision to go […]


The Goldbergs 3×19 ‘Magic is Real’: Tada!

Getting over your first love takes as long as it takes to find your second. Adam still isn’t over losing Dana on The Goldbergs, but thinks he’s found a new girl and tries to use magic to get in good with her. On the flip side, Barry is freaking out over the future and his […]


The Goldbergs 3×18 ‘12 Tapes for a Penny’: Kermit D. Fonz

This is an episode even I could get behind in one aspect. Columbia House made its way into the 90’s during my childhood, but now I see that long before I marked off CDs I wanted – people in the 80’s were dealing with the cassettes of their dreams in what appeared to be quite […]


The Goldbergs 3×17 ‘The Dirty Dancing Dance’: Nobody puts Erica in a corner…

One of my favorite movies to watch as a kid was Dirty Dancing. Trust me, looking back – I’m not sure why my mom let a five-year-old watch that on repeat, but maybe that’s what instilled in a disdain for authority? Not sure about that, but am 100% that I was stoked to hear The […]


The Goldbergs 3×16 ‘Edward ‘Eddie the Eagle’ Edwards’: Futons

There is an episode of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia that still makes my skin crawl. I know they were promoting brands to be funny, but I can’t stand shameless plugs. Did the producers of that Eddie the Eagle slip some cash under the table to The Goldbergs this week? Because really, that movie isn’t […]


The Goldbergs 3×15 ‘Weird Al’: Breaking up is hard to do…

Growing apart is one of the casualties of growing up and it will always be a part of your life for as long as you continue to socialize. There are very few people you’ll have in your inner circle forever, but as Adam and Dana showcased on this week’s The Goldbergs – sometimes that change […]


The Goldbergs 3×14 ‘Lainey Loves Lionel’: Porky’s

Yesterday Fresh Off the Boat taught us a little about romance and tonight The Goldbergs did more or less the same as Erica tried to teach her brother what women want while their dad forced their younger brother to start taking risks in life. Kendra Beltran Lives somewhere in between reality and believing she’ll marry […]


The Goldbergs 3×13 ‘Double Dare’: Handsome Ben

One of the major flaws of Nickelodeon today is that it’s void of game shows. Gone are the days when you could tune in and see Legends of the Hidden Temple and Double Dare. Kids today may have emojis and hashtags, but they fail at having a real childhood with shows like those being MIA. […]


The Goldbergs 3×12 ‘Baio and Switch’: The Peter Brady

Before you think I had a pop culture brain fart, I know Scott Baio wasn’t Peter Brady, but both played a huge role in The Goldbergs this week. One caused Beverly to realize that her family, while not picture perfect, was hers. The made Adam think he could be the odds and actually get away […]


The Goldbergs 3×11 ‘The Tasty Boys’: Who’s ill?

Being that I was born in the ‘80s and only spent a few years there, much of that time urinating on myself, I actually love learning a little history while learning life lessons from The Goldbergs. This week we dived into when hip hop entered suburban neighborhoods, saw where Tim Taylor got his enemy and […]


The Goldbergs 3×10 ‘A Christmas Story’: Super Hanukkah!

ABC let me down with their holiday episode of Fresh Off the Boat this week, but definitely made up for it with The Goldbergs. Only this family wasn’t all about Santa and Christmas trees…yet. When Beverly gets jealous of their neighbors ability to get together around the holidays, she enhances Hanukkah. Meanwhile the Goldberg brothers […]


The Goldbergs 3×09 ‘Wingmom’: Ghostly grandpa

When Pops decides he’s going to get a condo in Florida on The Goldbergs, Adam flips but not as much as Beverly does when she finds out her oldest son wants to join ROTC. Kendra Beltran Lives somewhere in between reality and believing she’ll marry Backstreet Boy Nick Carter. After two years of stress thanks […]


The Goldbergs 3×08 ‘In Conclusion, Thanksgiving’: “Family’s important and stuff…”

One may’ve thought this Thanksgiving episode of The Goldbergs was their Halloween one thanks to the tricks heading Murray’s way. Even though he was fooled, there were some treats like Beverly’s cooking and Barry’s insane, yet touching toast. Kendra Beltran Lives somewhere in between reality and believing she’ll marry Backstreet Boy Nick Carter. After two […]


The Goldbergs 3×07 ‘Lucky’: “Holy crap, puppies!”

Let’s pour one out for the sitcom dogs of yesteryear like Comet and Buck and say hello to the latest pup to into primetime; Lucky. Yes, The Goldbergs have added a new member to their family and although it was a rocky start, it ended well. While Murray was experiencing puppy love, Erica was in […]


The Goldbergs 3×06 ‘Couples Costume’: Razorblades and kidnapping

Dressing up, free candy, haunted houses. Those are all the best parts of Halloween and The Goldbergs covered all the bases this year for their annual holiday episode. Dana was back in town and it put a major damper in Beverly’s plans, but in the end family prevailed – as always and we learned that […]


The Goldbergs 3×05 ‘Boy Barry’: Mustache war

My mind completely skipped over Boy George when thinking of all the gems from the ‘80s this show could take on. Which is weird because I grew up with a friend who made us have ‘80s themed birthday parties. Anyways, ever since the picture of Barry as Boy came out, I’d been laughing to myself. […]


The Goldbergs 3×04 ‘I Caddyshacked the Pool’: Posers and Barity

The other day my boyfriend was floored that I’d never seen Caddyshack and you can read here why I likely never will. Bill Murray’s never been a favorite of mine, so that whole homage in this week’s episode of The Goldbergs was lost on me – what wasn’t was Adam being self-conscious about his body. […]
