'The Goldbergs': Plenty of screams, but no laughs


ABC’s new sitcom about a suburban 1980s family leaves something to be desired.

Writer Adam F. Goldberg (“Breaking In”) re-creates his childhood “The Wonder Years”-style, down to Oswalt’s nostalgic narration, with this family comedy set in 1985.

Watching “The Goldbergs” is like watching a stranger’s home movies. This loud, obnoxious blast of hot air from the past can be summed up in six words: plenty of screaming, absolutely no laughing.

What: “The Goldbergs”

When: 9 p.m. Sept. 24, KTNV-TV, Channel 13

Who’s in it: Jeff Garlin, George Segal, Patton Oswalt
