this new 80s family comedy will air on Seven from Wednesday June 5th at 8:45

I love anything 80s themed so this is a must watch for me!

What a coincidence. Last week I listened to Glenn Gould playing the Goldberg Variations. That recording was done in 1981, so I suppose there's a 1980s component. The variations were composed in the 1740s, though, so perhaps not very 1980s after all. ;)

Finally! Saw the entire first season as it aired in the US. Probably the best new comedy of last season, what makes it so good is how relatable the Goldberg family is to most families not only from the 80s but even today. It's also funny to remind us how we and our parents used to get by before text messaging, internet, HDTV, social media etc.

Seven screens The Goldbergs out of sequence

US sitcom The Goldbergs begins on Seven this week, featuring a family in the 1980s videotaped by their youngest son Adam.

Seven screens Episode 1 at 8:45pm on Wednesday. A second episode will air at 9:15pm but this will be Episode 7.

Next week it airs Episode 8, followed by Episodes 2 and 11 a week later.

It’s hardly the first time networks have been guilty of this practice, but it’s a lot more difficult for them to slip them under the radar with net-savvy audiences.

Seven took this off for a month or so but it's back next week on Monday at 10pm!

I love this show, they could have done what every other family show does and set it in the present time but this show did something different and set it in the 80s. I love all the 80s movie references but it's hard to know when exactly it's set. people on Imdb seem to think its set in 1989 or even 1990.

I think it's been made deliberately vague with the '1980-something' some think so as to give them room to move depending on how long the show lasts if they were sticking to the real life 80's timeline - there's anachronisms all over the show (not to mention sevens been playing the episodes out of order anyway).

I don't think it impacts the plot too much as well. That 70's show would have done something similar I think. From TVTropes page;

tvtropes.org wrote:Anachronism Stew: The show refuses to say specific years, as each episode begins with present-day Adam saying the date followed by "1980-something".
- The exact year is deliberately left ambiguous. For instance in one episode Adam and Pops are wearing Ghostbusters costumes which would put the time 1985 or later. But in another episode Murray is watching the Phillies in the World Series which would put it in either 1980 or 1983. Yet everyone is the exact same age.
- The pop culture (obsession with The Karate Kid, for example) would place it around 1984-1986, yet one of the boys wanted "pump" running shoes, which weren't introduced until 1989.
- And then an episode takes place with the theatrical debut of Return of the Jedi as a plot point, which was released in 1983.

this returns with the second half of season 2 Thursday night with a double episode. Seven took it of during the late summer period and only got half way I think. they scheduled Barry's Goldberg's Day Off (which I was looking forward to) and aired something else. they didn't actually air it, but aren't airing it this week for some reason, the 2 eps after that one they are

Season 3 took a year or more to get to our screens, Season 4 has started on Seven late at night on Mondays and Tuesday's. this started in the US in September, saw the first Ep while on holiday in the US in Sep/Oct. saw ads on their TV for the premiere episode which was a tribute to The Breakfast Club. loved it, watched it again on TV here. hopefully they will fast-track Season 5 this year, they have time. what I don't get is why this brilliant and hilarious comedy gets disrespected so much on TV here, Seven should just give all comedies to 7flix in earlier timeslots. it's way better then Modern Family, The Middle and other family shows! gets me so angry they play this after 11pm!
