Tv Season Info

Season 2 of this nostalgic slice-of-life comedy features more shenanigans from the Goldberg family. Beverly (Wendi McLendon-Covey) is as overprotective and domineering as ever, going so far as to cast Adam (Sean Giambrone) in a rival play after he fails to get a leading role in the school musical. And she even attempts to get Coach Meller (Bryan Callen) fired for criticizing her "schmoo" during a game of dodgeball. Adam, for his part, tries to come into his own, but a host of missteps, coupled with Beverly's overbearing behavior, hamstring his efforts. Barry (Troy Gentile) continues his pursuit of Lainey (AJ Michalka) and tries to make himself cooler, even mimicking the plot of "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" in one episode. Meanwhile, Pops (George Segal) briefly moves in when he gets evicted for starting a fire. Jeff Garlin and Hayley Orrantia also star.

Critic Reviews for The Goldbergs: Season 2

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

Yes, The Goldbergs are back and they're as loud, as crass and as unapologetic about their emotions as ever. And, frankly, I wouldn't have it any other way.

September 25, 2014 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

They [the writing team] are proving to all of the other returning comedies that the alleged sophomore slump can be avoided when you put your mind to it and craft a well rounded episode.

September 25, 2014 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

The Goldbergs seems primed to capitalize on its strengths, namely a terrific cast and snappy writing that exudes warmth while eschewing treacle.

November 5, 2014 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

The show is the best of any family comedy on TV in the way it eschews dysfunction for its more appropriate, real-world term: love.

October 3, 2014 | Full Review…

It's easy to enter season two with a sense of hopefulness.
