Tag: The Goldbergs (1-3 of 3)
You could do a lot worse than The Goldbergs, the new ’80s-set comedy following ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. It’s got a cute premise, the cast is hilarious, and underneath the flashy fashion throwbacks and ALL THE YELLING, a strong and realistic family dynamic is cropping up.
Sure, I’m a sucker for a solid father-daughter coming-of-age TV moment like the one we got at the end of tonight’s episode 2, but whatever. Sometimes that’s all it takes. My heart has been warmed! Wendi McLendon-Covey’s absurdly hot roller rink moves have inspired me to wear more off-the-shoulder sweaters this fall! They’ve got me. I’m in. This better not get canceled.
Jeff Garlin (Curb Your Enthusiasm) and McLendon-Covey (Reno 911, Bridesmaids) play gruff tough-lover Murray and overbearing ball-breaker Beverly, who love to raise their voices but only because they so passionately want to “parent the sh*t” out of their three aging-too-quickly kids. Despite the intensity of their antics, I find them both believable as parents, and as a couple. Didn’t we all know obnoxious yet huggable people, growing up? These are just some of them!

We learn a lot of interesting things when we administer our EW Pop Culture Personality Test. In addition to uncovering why a young Tom Hanks owes his career to a young Wendi McLendon-Covey, we also discovered that McLendon-Covey needs to have her own Web series in which she discusses TV moments that made her cry. You’ll see her get misty in the video below discussing The Little House on the Prairie, but she also welled up recalling moments on The Love Boat (“Capt. Stubing had to say goodbye to a woman he met in Australia, and I think they said goodbye about 14 times, it just kept prolonging it and prolonging it, and she presented him with a seashell that said ‘Goodbye’ on it — I can’t even…”) and Happy Days (“Fonzie says goodbye to his girlfriend Pinky Tuscadero and they ride on their motorcycles hand-in-hand … That’s all I’m gonna say about that”).
Taking a brief break so her eye makeup could be touched up, we volunteered the episode of Three’s Company when Janet quits the flower shop because her dance teacher said she had a career in it, but he really just wanted to seduce her, and instead of telling Janet “I told you so,” Jack asked her to dance. “He says, ‘You don’t have what it takes to be a dancer.’ ‘Well, you don’t have what it takes to be a human being!’ And I said, ‘Janet, you are in inspiration,’” McLendon-Covey says, not missing a beat. When we’re ready to roll again, she adds, ”We didn’t even touch on Fantasy Island… Let’s not.”
