Plot Synopsis

Inspired by the childhood of series creator Adam F. Goldberg, this sitcom follows a screwed-up but loving family living in the '80s. Beverly is an overbearing, overprotective matriarch and shopaholic, who has a big mouth -- and she's not afraid to use it. Her husband, Murray, is a rageaholic, who struggles to remain calm after heart surgery, especially because he parents by calling each kid a moron. Adam, the youngest son at 11 years old, is a camera-wielding future director who's crushing on an older woman, and will grow up to be the series creator. Adam's older sister, Erica, is a 17-year-old, hot, and crass high-school senior, who manipulates and beats up on her younger brother. Barry, the middle child at 16, is a grade A spaz. And then there's Pops, an old Don Juan schooling his young grandson, Adam, in the ways of love. THE GOLDBERGS debuted on ABC on Tuesday, September 24, 2013 at 9pm ET/PT, as Barry woke up on his birthday expecting to get a car, but was disappointed at the kitchen table when Beverly told him he wasn't ready for that responsibility. THE GOLDBERGS returned for its second season on Wednesday, September 24, 2014 at 8:30pm ET/PT on ABC. In the season opener, "Love Is a Mix Tape," Adam makes a mix tape to express his feelings for Dana after spending a summer apart...only to have it intercepted by Beverly who thinks it's meant for her! Adam must carefully navigate not hurting Beverly's feelings as his relationship with Dana progresses. Meanwhile, Barry gets a fake ID, but after showing it off to the entire school, it's confiscated, and Barry needs to make good on some promises he made to his classmates. THE GOLDBERGS returned for its third season on Wednesday, September 23, 2015 at 8:30pm ET/PT on ABC. In the season opener, "A Kick-Ass Risky Business Party," Lainey, Erica and Barry plan a big RISKY BUSINESS-inspired party at her home, just like the movie, while Lainey's dad is out of town. Later, when the party gets out of control, Beverly jumps to the rescue and Lainey is happy to have a mother figure like Beverly in her life, but for how long? Meanwhile, Adam's relationship with Dana by talking to her for hours on the phone angers Murray. As a result, Adam tries a bunch of new ways to contact her since she's moved away. Season 4 of THE GOLDBERGS premiered on Wednesday, September 21, 2016 at 8pm ET/PT on ABC with an episode that pays homage to 1980s John Hughes classic flick BREAKFAST CLUB. In the season opener, "Breakfast Club," Adam works on his new persona for the first day of high school that he hopes will up his coolness level. Meanwhile, Beverly gets her teaching certification to become a substitute teacher. But when she is demoted to sub-janitor, she sends the Goldberg kids to a Saturday detention, but it is Principal Ball who must oversee the kids. Later, Murray arrives and takes over where he gives an important lesson.

Tonight (Wednesday, March 22, 2017) at 8pm ET/PT, ABC airs "O Captain! My Captain!," an encore episode of THE GOLDBERGS. Beverly substitutes for Barry's chemistry class in hopes to inspire students in the same way as Mr. Keating from DEAD POETS SOCIETY, much to Barry's embarrassment. When Beverly refuses to give Barry special treatment, Murray pushes Barry to work hard and prove to her that he can get a good grade. Meanwhile, after accidentally embarrassing Emmy by reading a note about her in class, Adam enlists Erica's help to be a better friend.
