Goldbergs News!

In the middle of the Marvel internet freakout, some really cool news about upcoming episodes of The Goldbergs was released that you may have missed.

  • Ferris Bueller Tribute Episode

On Tuesday it was announced that the John Hughes homage is finally set – “Adam’s Folly” will be based on the hit 1986 classic Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. From The Hollywood Reporter:

“Ferris Bueller (played by Matthew Broderick) exuded cool. He got the girl, he had the epic day off, he outsmarted his teachers, parents, siblings and classmates. And the way John Hughes captured that epic day of fun, it was the obvious choice to send the Goldbergs on a quest to re-create that awesome day off,” Goldberg said in a statement. “My older brother Barry and I had little in common growing up, but we shared an equal obsession with Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Watching it over and over was how we bonded and we quoted lines from it as if it was our secret language. We saw ourselves in the iconic character of Ferris, the popular schemer who could do no wrong. However, we all knew the reality — neither of us was a Ferris. Sadly, we both more resembled Cameron (Alan Ruck), Ferris’ hapless sidekick.”

We’re looking forward to the many possibilities this episode can bring. Compared to a 22-minute episode, the hilarity-ensuing hijinks of Ferris are virtually limitless. Here’s to hoping Ben Stein gets a cameo, we get to hear “Oh Yeah!” (maybe with a Twix or two), and that Barry walks out in his robe at the end saying “You’re still here? It’s over. Go home!”

  • New Kids on the Block tribute

On Wednesday, also from Lesley Goldberg at The Hollywood Reporter, we found out a little more information about an upcoming episode entitled “DannyDonnieJoeyJonJordan” based on those guys with the ‘Right Stuff,’ NKOTB. Says Adam:

“I have a whole episode mapped out in my head about the time that me and Chad Kremp became obsessed with the New Kids. It started out in jest, and we ended up really loving their music. And that’s perfect for Adam and Barry.”

  • The Return of Big Tasty

If you missed last night’s Halloween Episode – “Family Takes Care of Beverly” – you missed the return of Barry’s rap persona/alter-ego Big Tasty. With the JTP (Jenkintown Posse) beatboxing in the background Big Tasty rapped his love for Lainey (or L to the Y to the N to the E). With news that a mini-Bev called Evelyn is on the horizon to be set up with Barry for an episode 2015, and word that Lexy Bloom will return, it sounds like the tough-but-gentle warrior will have his hands full with the ladies this season!

  • Upcoming episodes – November sweeps

IMDB has the order all out of whack, but the press releases for the next few episodes are as follows:

November 5th – The CMA Awards take over all of ABC’s Wednesday night lineup so new episodes are pushed back a week.

November 12th – “Big Baby Ball”

“When Mr. Meller singles out Adam during a game of Dodgeball, Beverly intervenes to protect Adam and gets Meller fired. But soon, Murray and Adam see him in a new light, so Beverly tries to get his job back…will she succeed? Meanwhile, Barry can’t accept Erica is better than him in a new board game… Trivial Pursuit”

November 19th – “A Goldbergs Thanksgiving”

“As a bet, Beverly challenges Erica to participate in Jazzercise after she thinks her mom’s obsession is lame.  When she wins, Erica decides to opt out of celebrating Thanksgiving so Beverly must find a way to win her daughter back to celebrate the holiday with the family.  Meanwhile, uncle Marvin shows up for his annual visit to the Goldberg home and unexpectedly bonds with Adam which annoys Murray.”

Which means it’s quite possible that Dan Fogler – 2014 Goldies winner for best guest star – will be returning! Wonder if we’ll see Nitrous (Dustin Ybarra) again this season as well?

Which episode are you most looking forward to in November?

The Goldbergs Season 2, Episode 4 – Shall We Play A Game?

The fine folks over at SpoilerTv.co.uk have some promotional images from tomorrow night’s episode – “Shall We Play A Game?” so we wanted to share them with you below!

Official Synopsis: Adam accidentally gets Barry kicked out of the cool-kids club (Jenkintown Posse) at school, and he tries to remedy the situation by offering to hack into the school’s computer system and change the popular kids’ grades. Elsewhere, Beverly tries to be a cool mom after learning that Erica prefers to spend time with a friend’s mother.  Italics added by the Goldnerds

‘Shall We Play a Game?’ airs on ABC Wednesday October 22nd at 8:30/7:30C
