In season one, episode fifteen, "Muscles Mirsky", Pops suggests Adam watches When Harry Met Sally... (1989) for tips on how best friends can be of the opposite sex. This movie didn't release until 1989, which sets a late 1989 date for the show. See more »

I believe it depends on what type family you grew up with whether you enjoy this program or not; and although my family was not exactly like this, nor did we grow up in the 80s, The Goldbergs is quite charming and each episode has struck a nerve with this viewer and tugged at my heartstrings.
The fact that Adam F. Goldberg is culling story lines from actual family life experiences gives this series a sense of realism other shows lack. Further, it is driven by sincerity, rather than dependent on trying too hard for a quota of laughs.
The Goldbergs is a winner, which I highly recommend.
A word for The Goldbergs bashers: It's OK, to turn off the intellect and take an emotional ride and enjoy life, rather than looking for flaws in an effort to project your superiority.
