Touring "The Goldbergs" Set with Adam Goldberg!
If anyone knows me, then they know that I am obsessed with any type of entertainment that takes me back to the decade where it all started for me. So imagine my thrill when I got the chance to visit the set of "The Goldbergs" this month and I got to meet Sean Giambrone - the teen who plays Adam and even got a set tour from THE Adam Goldberg. The pair came to the set on their week off to share behind the scenes stories about the show and to talk about the inspiration behind all the amazing nostalgic items you get to see every week on the show. I was joined on the set by my west coast partner in writing crime, Kristin who took over Beverly's kitchen in this hilarious Facebook Live video.
What I really loved about the visit was getting the chance to step back in time and really relive those days. It was great hearing from Adam Goldberg about the set decor - especially when he revealed that his parents' bedspread, his dad's signature chair, and the hamburger phone in Adam's room all came from his original home! Come to think of it, I had the same bedspread! And check out the poster's on Erica's wall -- just seeing Rick Springfield took me back to my very first 80's concert where he was headlining. But I digress!
Back to The Goldbergs. While we were visiting the Sony lot, we got a sneak peak of The Goldbergs halloween episode which airs tonight at 8:00 pm ET/7:00 pm CT on ABC. I'm not going to give anything away but let's just say that Erica is wearing one of my favorite costumes of all time - Audrey from Little Shop of Horrors. While she's still trying to convince everyone that she has a date for the Halloween dance, Jeff's girlfriend isn't convinced and still thinks she's out to steal her man. You never know....
Meanwhile, Adam is exploring his inner Steven King and writes a scary novel that Beverly decides to introduce at her book club. I won't give anything away but the episode is laugh out loud funny as all of the Goldbergs episodes are. But more than anything else, it was so much fun chatting with Sean who is 17 years old and super sweet like his character. And the real Adam is hilarious too. He talked about how his mom is still proud of everything she does. He even revealed how his mom slept over in his dorm the first night he attended NYU because she couldn't bear to see her son leave home.
Honestly, visiting the set of The Goldbergs was an unforgettable experience and made me love the show even more. Don't forget to catch the Halloween episode of The Goldbergs tonight and watch every Wednesday on ABC at 8pm ET/7pm CT.
