The Goldbergs - Season 3
The Goldbergs is an American television sitcom series that first aired on September 24, 2013. Created by Adam F. Goldberg, it is loosely based on his family in the 1980s, complete with a childhood version of himself. On May 2020, ABC renewed the series for an eight season, which began airing on October 21, 2020. On May 14, 2021 the series was renewed for a ninth season that premiered on September 22, 2021. on April 19, 2022 the series was renewed for a tenth season it is scheduled to premiere September 21, 2022.
George Segal the role of Albert Solomon aka Pops passed away March 23, 2021 and his character was written of off after the eighth season. on December 15, 2021, it was announced that Jeff Garlin, who portrays Murray Goldberg, would be departing the series after nine seasons due to multiple misconduct allegations and HR investigations. As Garlin had one more day of filming left for the season, it was reported that a body double was to be used and Garlin's face would be added via CGI in post-production "to wrap up his character's storyline".
The project originally received a script commitment from Fox in August 2011. After Adam Goldberg's previous show, Breaking In, was canceled, he did not want to wait for another pilot season to arrive and moved it to ABC, who agreed to immediately produce it. On January 11, 2013, Wendi McLendon-Covey was cast as the pilot's lead; later, Jeff Garlin and George Segal joined the cast.
Another possible episode this season could be a Bar Mitzvah for Adam the character, who is played by Sean Giambrone. Continuity on the comedy is getting a bit odd as the actors grow older in real life, but their child characters have stayed the same age. Goldberg addressed the cartoon-esque conceit.
One consistency that Goldberg would love to stay on trajectory for is his plan to pull off one big movie parody per season. The showrunner knows that if his series can get the rights to another nostalgic movie from the decade, their small screen adaptation would all but be a ratings lock.
Before we get to the new baby part, let's talk about the cast dynamics, because Jeff Garlin is no longer on the show. You had to get a little creative with the absence of his character, Murray, during the back half of season 9. So what is to come in terms of Jeff Garlin's departure and Murray's presence, or lack thereof?
BARNOW: Well, [Garlin is] not going to be on the season, obviously. [Murray] will have passed, and we are sort of starting from a place of multiple months removed from his death. The family has already grieved, unlike Pops [George Segal] and the premiere of season 9 where they're dealing with it sort of very freshly. This is going to be a family that has not reconciled the fact that their father's gone but has sort of moved on and has dealt with a lot of that. So we're starting with optimism about a baby coming and looking forward to the future. It's an opportunity for this interesting emotional basis for the way people are behaving. But Jeff won't be in the series this year, and so far the stories have been largely about looking forward rather than looking back.
So when we last saw everyone months ago, Adam graduated high school, Erica and Geoff were married, and we found out in the season finale that she's pregnant. At the time Beverly was worried about having an empty nest, but now everyone is home. So how did we get here?
Geoff and Erica, they're moving back in to sort of save money and get some help when the baby arrives. And Beverly's going to be that overbearing smother turned into an overbearing grandsmother. So we're excited about that. And if you're missing any of that curmudgeonly feeling from the character of Murray, we have Judd Hirsch as Pop-Pop coming back for a lot, to keep the house very, very full. I feel like it's going to help us a lot with driving stories. It honestly feels like a huge reboot for us. So we have tons of momentum rolling into this new season.
BISHOP: [Laughs] Yes. We have them butting heads a lot, and we have a great Hanukkah episode coming up where Bev will hope for how you raise your children [is] how you assume they'll raise their children. There's lots of tension between Beverly and Erica this season, which is great for story for us. So we're very happy with that.
Love that movie. And speaking of movies and tributes to various movies and shows throughout the seasons, the season premiere is always something a little bigger, something really special, this year's being Field of Dreams. How exactly are we going to see that manifest throughout the episode?
Whether it was thanks to his portrayal of Dr. Noah Drake on General Hospital or his 1981 number one hit "Jessie's Girl," Rick Springfield was one of the most well-known faces and voices of the '80s. It's a wonder it took a whole six seasons for him to finally appear on The Goldbergs.
There is no doubt that The Goldbergs is a great sitcom, as it is rated on the whole as an 8.0 out of 10 on the website IMDb. Since premiering in 2013, the show has earned a devoted following of fans, many of whom can name their favourite season and their favourite episode from each season.
The finale of the first season proved to new audiences that this show was going to last. The episode centers around Barry trying to throw a house party for the ages. The event gets even better when partygoers all start wearing Beverley's sweaters, as her attire happens to be one of The Goldbergs' funniest running gags.
Sitcom season finales often get the highest ratings on IMDb, and this episode is no exception. With Adam about to start high school, he and Barry have one of their feuds during Freshman Fear Week, resulting in a jaw-dropping moment when Adam manages to bodyslam his older brother.
Beverly of course is her classic "smother" self, mourning over her kids growing up. But what IMDb raters probably remember most about this episode is the moment when Erica realises that she loves Geoff, only to see him with another girl after being rejected by Erica so many times. It's a heartbreaking moment, and it leaves the season on an impactful note.
Everything thankfully ends up okay, and Adam gets his "Movie Moment" with Brea, giving the show another great couple to root for. And of course, Beverly's antics are at their crowd-pleasing best in this episode. It's a lovely way to end the season.
In one of the most emotional episodes of the entire show, Geoff proposes to Erica and she happily accepts, though of course not before the shenanigans from the rest of the family almost stop the proposal from even happening. Erica and Geoff's relationship is generally adored by viewers, and seeing them decide to take the next step is a great way to end season 8.
The most recent season opens on a tribute to the late George Segal who played Pops on The Goldbergs before he died in March 2021. The episode provides heartfelt memories of the character and the actor, as both were such an integral part of this beloved sitcom.
The Goldbergs race around town to honor Pops in a recreation of the 1989 film Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, and each of the main characters are able to grieve their beloved family member. Fans no doubt rate this episode highly because of their respect and adoration for Segal, and while the rest of season 9 will likely be great, it certainly won't be the same without him.
Speaking of Lainey, the writers are thankfully addressing that big kiss her and Barry shared last season. Even though Barry is a complete moron, I hope he gets the girl. It looked like Lainey was willing to give him a chance. It will be interesting to see the weirdness when the relationship happens between Erica and Barry.
