The Goldbergs have returned at this very moment. And although the family comedy is already in its tenth season, it still seems like the 1980s. Even if the decade hasn’t ended yet, the new season does bring along some significant changes.
The 10th season’s premiere, which departs from the previous three, which prominently marketed their 80s movie tie-ins, instead focused on redefining the program. This specifically involves addressing Murray Goldberg’s absence.
Viewers will swiftly catch up on the present situation of the main protagonists in the opening seconds of the episode. They will also see what is, to my knowledge, the first brand-new VHS tape graphic since the show’s inception. The main family is now visible in the photograph, consisting of Erica, Jeff, Beverly, Adam, Barry, and Lucky the dog.
Rest assured that this episode alone still includes visits from Murray’s father Pop Pop, Ginsy, Bill Lewis, and the JTP (JTP! ), among others, lest you imagine that this means it’s just these five humans and one doggo all the time.
Of course, there is still a connection to the film because the storyline of the episode involves Field of Dreams (to answer your question, it was released in 1989). While the Goldberg home becomes increasingly crowded, Erica and Jeff are busy setting up a nursery for their impending kid. Of course, as I hinted at, Murray — or the lack thereof — plays a highly emotional role in each of the narratives.
You’ll note that I’m not directly telling you what has happened to the patriarch, but I’m certain you can guess very well.
I voiced the question of whether Season 9 of The Goldbergs should be the show’s final one in my assessment of that season. Personally, I continue to believe that it should have, particularly in light of Jeff Garlin’s departure and George Segal’s demise. But viewing this season’s first episode made me realize how much I still like these people. Yes, the program is still too sentimental (really, how many episodes do you suppose conclude with at least one hug?) yet it still managed to make me literally LOL.
Regarding the modifications, even if the show has long since departed from translating Adam F. Goldberg’s true-life family stories, I do believe I’ll welcome the simplifying strategies this season’s reset adopted as it returns the focus to the core characters.
After just one episode, it’s difficult to predict if this season will be a success, but I’m cautiously optimistic. Even if the upcoming episodes aren’t top-tier Goldbergs, I have no doubt that they’ll still include heartfelt laughs and meaningful moments. To put it another way, I’ll continue to watch every Wednesday.
