The Goldbergs takes place in the 1980s but in an alternate version, set in Jenkintown, Pennsylvania. The main purpose of this series is to show the 1980s from the perspective of a child and teenager’s eyes. Adam F. Goldberg based this series loosely on his own childhood. When he was younger Adam F. Goldberg would regularly videotape everything important that happened in his life when he was a child. The videos that he used to take all the time are actually frequently reenacted throughout the series. At the end of the episodes, the real video that Goldberg took plays before the credits so the viewers can see the real and reenacted version. This series tries to show everyone what life was like back in the 80s for a child and teenager and follows his and his family’s life.
Since The Goldbergs aired, it has received a wide range of mixed reviews. Many critics have absolutely loved the series and claimed that it has great writing all around, with an even better cast to perform the series. Whereas other critics have stated that the show was obnoxious and just all around awful.
