‘Who’s Got The Look?’ Part 7

Part 7 dives deeper into the vanity cards of Season Two of The Goldbergs! You can click here for Part 1Part 2Part 3Part 4Part 5 & Part 6 to catch up with where we’ve been. But before you go any further, VOTE VOTE VOTE for The Goldies!!

S02E11

The Darryl Dawkins Dance

Spoiler Alert: This episode culminates in Barry & Lainey finally becoming a ‘thing’! Prior to that Beverly sets Barry up with a similar version of herself who Erica, in turn, sets up with a very Murray-like young man (played by Jeff Garlin’s real son). Back at the homestead Adam tries to change the ending to the Transformers movie and comes to grips with the fact that Pops might not be around forever.

In the photo Bev & Murray are with Adam (or is it Barry) in the mountains somewhere. Was there a dance up there? Is there a Transformers connection? What does this have to do with the episode?!?!?

S02E12

Cowboy Country

Adam has real feelings for Dana that Beverly just can’t get behind. In an attempt to show how grown up his love is Adam scales the water tower to spray paint the infamous message – “Adam ♥ Dan” – before running out of paint. Lainey’s dad, Bill Lewis, turns out to be a Cowboys Fan much to the Goldberg men’s chagrin. But forbidden love is the best kind and can’t keep our two teen sweethearts apart for long.

In the photo we return to Beverly posing in her famous “perfetto” shirt with Adam and Pops (possibly) in the background.

Van People

Adam hates the fact that he was voted nicest guy in the yearbook when he was really going for funniest (Best Hair on a Man went to Dave Kim, of course), so he goes to Pops on advice for how to spice up his comedy act. As is often the case, the advice of the sage is misinterpreted and lands Adam in hot water with the various butts of his various jokes. Barry & Erica meanwhile want to move out from under Murray’s heinous rules & on their own into a van down by the garage. The blistering cold plus spilled tuna water may be enough to get Barry back inside, however.

Pops and Adam are shown here in a great example of their wonderful friendship. Little known fact, Adam won the Philadelphia Young Playwrights competition with a play inspired by Pops called Dr. Pickup that he wrote when he was only 15!

S02E14

Barry Goldberg’s Day Off

What more can we say about this episode other than: WATCH IT OVER & OVER

Pictured is Barry in the most 80’s coolness imaginable – jean jacket with popped collar.

S02E15

Happy Mom, Happy Life

Beverly becomes grand-smother to Leia DeLorean Goldberg only to lose her in a freak doll-knapping-by-dog accident. The replacement she comes up with is nothing short of terrifying and her involvement puts a strain on Adam & Dana’s relationship. Elsewhere Erica joins the JTP to get back at Barry for stealing her best friend away.

Look at that smile. Beverly is a happy mom! How could Adam *not* have a happy life?!

The Goldies 2015 – Week 4

‘Who’s Got The Look?’ Part 6

Part 6 continues through Season Two of The Goldbergs! You can click here for Part 1Part 2Part 3Part 4, and Part 5 to catch up with where we’ve been. But before you go any further, VOTE VOTE VOTE for The Goldies!!

S02E06

Big Baby Ball

The point of this episode is to show how awful gym class was in middle school if you weren’t blessed with the skills of an athlete. We know the feeling all too well. Bev does take things a little too far with Coach Mellor but it did make for a great scene at the furniture store. Back at the house Barry is constantly losing to Erica – even in a game of his own design: Barry-Nopoly. Can he eke out a win in Junior Trivial Pursuit?

We cannot verify whether or not this person is a member of the Goldberg family. Clearly he has Adam’s “sports aren’t your sport” skills but who is this awkward quarterback, really?

EDIT: Straight from Bev (@goldilocks405) herself, “That’s Barry throwing the ball”

S02E07

A Goldberg Thanksgiving

We hope this tradition never ends. Uncle Marvin (Dan Fogler) visiting at Thanksgiving is the gift that keeps on giving! The Wizard and the Power Glove make awesome appearances here, as does an aerobics class with Beverly & Erica. When a pulled vajingo occurs, you know this Thanksgiving won’t be forgotten any time soon.

Pictured are the Goldberg boys. Barry is trying to look too cool for this photo or possibly looking at the wrong camera. Murray chooses to bless his oldest & youngest with a father’s touch.

S02E08

I Rode A Hoverboard

Many burning questions are answered in this episode, such as: Can one episode start with George Michael and end with Big Tasty Pork? What won’t Beverly put cheese on? Does Dave Kim have a family? Were hoverboards real, Bob??

In the picture we see the friendship that has stood the test of time: Emmy, Adam & some dog.

S02E09

The Most Handsome Boy On The Planet

Barry is approached in the mall by a “talent scout” who convinces Barry to become a model. Beverly is completely on board because she is convinces of her boy’s deliciousness. Erica knows it’s a scam and Barry has second thoughts once Bev jumps in on some photos. We also get to find out that Murray’s father is STILL ALIVE and LIVES NEARBY!!! What the…??

After this show aired, Adam said that these were actual glamour shots of one of the writers or other crew member. A brave writer or other crew member.

S02E10DannyDonnieJoeyJonJordan

Let’s cut right to the chase – the music video and re-creation at the end of the episode is completely epic. [Kudos to Chad Kremp for finding this and getting it back to Adam in time for the episode.] After the boys find Erica’s New Kids on the Block stuff in the garage and try to use it to their embarrassing advantage, they find out their teasing has actually turned them into fans of the band!

Going out on a limb here and saying that this picture has nothing to do with NKOTB. Most likely drawn by a toddler who loves his/her ‘babby’, this doodle appears to show a young girl with pink bow in her hair. Anyone care to comment?
