It seems like retro is the name of the game for family sitcoms this year. While Fox is taking us back to the 90s with Chris Meloni next season with Surviving Jack, ABC has The Goldbergs on deck to transport us further back, to the mid-80s and into the lives of the Goldberg family. The series comes from Adam Goldberg and stars Bridesmaids' Wendi McLendon-Covey and Curb Your Enthusiasm's Jeff Garlin as the patriarchs of the Goldberg family.
In addition to Goldberg, this series also has the comedic power of Happy Madison productions behind it. Here's ABC's official description for the comedy, which is set to air at 9:00 p.m. on Tuesday night, immediately following Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
I've been hopeful about this project since we first heard about it last fall. Back then, the pilot was described as "a dysfunctional Wonder Years set in simpler times." The trailer appears to live up to that description, showing us a whacky sitcom family living in a retro setting, which is likely to incite a bit of nostalgia for those of us who grew up during that time. Of the comedies lined up for the 2013-2014 season, The Goldbergs is one of the ones I'm most hopeful about. I'm also especially grateful that the title has been switched to the family name, from How the F--- Am I Normal. I'm also grateful for this awkward Goldberg family photo, complete with matching Cosby sweaters...
ABC has The Goldbergs scheduled to air Tuesdays at 9:00 p.m. ET. Check out the full ABC Fall 2013 schedule here.
