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.

Sep 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.

Sep 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.

Nov 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.

Oct 3, 2014 | Full Review…

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

Audience Reviews for The Goldbergs: Season 2

  • Feb 07, 2019
    "The Goldbergs" are one very dysfunctional family, but beyond all the over-the-top fighting, is a sweet love that pairs well in its 1980s setting of suburban Philadelphia.
  • Sep 03, 2018
    Cringe, Cringe, and an 80’s “DOCUMENTRY” this show provides anough moments to be okay.
  • Oct 22, 2017
    This show is still as funny as it was in its first season and Wendi McLendon-Covey is still hilarious.
  • Jan 25, 2017
    One of the best shows on TV. Hysterical!!!

    I sat through this shit or I mean a "show" really high it's so fucking bad that I actually sobered up. Mind you I sat through some pretty bad movies really drunk, high or even with the munchies like Nine Lives, Trolls 2, the Room and Samurai Cop. If this can't make me laugh while high, drunk or even super hungry with the giggles, then what in the actual fuck is the worth of this so called piece of shit aka "comedy". Turn this shit off and watch something good like BoJack Horseman or Red Hot American Summer. I thought Batman v Superman was bad but holy shit this is a nightmare.

    Second season of The Goldbergs does not surprise. It continues the tradition that the first season started. Being golden in its mediocrity. The Goldbergs is a series, set in the 80s which is great. People are extremely obsessed with them (from CDs to Dance Party USA). But sometimes it seems like The Goldbergs is actually FROM the 80s. I could easily picture the series being made in the multi - cam format with laugh track behind. It's a modern era Full House or Family Matters. It just isn't all that modern. That - of course - does not mean that something is wrong. The Goldbergs is still cute and innocent. But in that kind of close concept, there is not enough space for growth. There is only space for mediocrity - golden or any other kind.

    It is the perfect middle between being too comedic and too serious. Always recommend it.
  • Jun 15, 2015
    The most feel good program ever! You can relate to a lot of the stories which makes it fun to watch. I love everything about The Goldbergs!!! :-) You don't have to be born in the 80's to love this show!
  • Jun 14, 2015
    This is very well directed, and since it feels like true stories about Adam's life, I deeply enjoyed the life of a lovely family!
  • Apr 19, 2015
    If you grew up in the 80s this is the show to watch. Hilarious! Touching. GREAT!
