    Same, 1 phone in kitchen back in 60's (even a party line) but in 80's we had phone in every room, still with very long cords.

    Was hoping for some video of Ball Ball or at least a picture of the trophy. Wonder if they were real. Their Thanksgiving seems a lot like the ones we had when I was younger.

    I am loving this show. Love the Grandpa haha wanting to invest in anything thrown at him that was funny.

    The ending with real life short clips is an extra icing on the cake which makes this show good in my opinion. Makes each episode feel more realistic

    I'm confused...they showed Ball Ball AND the trophy. The trophy was the goblet with a Styrofoam cup on top.

    I think he meant in the home videos at the end.

    That was hilarious when Adam was drinking from the "goblet" at the Thanksgiving table. All I could think of was how gross and dirty it must be! :p;)

    Yes, sorry, my OP wasn't too clear. Prefer the Geller Cup on Friends (a troll doll nailed to a 2x4) to this one. lol

    CHX DIGIT. Any episode with a DeLorean is good in my book. My favorite character is the mother. Yeah she is out there in her family's business but its funny stuff!!

    Especially one with the doors stuck open and references to "cocaine powder." :D

    I will say, as a kid, about 10 years older than the older brother, my friends and I played similar type games in my parents living room with either rolled up tube socks (remember those?) or a 25 cent vending machine blow up football. Our rules were closer to that of football, but there was a lot of made up stuff along the way. I have no doubt that was a "real" game that Adam and his brother played.

    To me, a lot of what makes this show is Jeff Garlin's (the dad) loving disgust of everything around him. You know he kinda likes it all that way, but he's disdain for it all, is just hysterical. I loved how he called the kids "What's her name and the two morons" :)

    I'm liking this show more and more. I'm vaguely familiar with Jenkintown/Willow Grove so even that's cool.

    I think the show is getting better each week. That, or I'm nostalgic. Either way, I'm still watching.

    I agree with all of you. I thought it was fairly good to start with, but now that we know the idiosyncrasies of all the characters, it's even better. Now, we have to figure out how to NOT get it cancelled :)

    My family and I are really enjoying this show. This and 'The Middle' are the only two sitcoms that my wife and I let our 9-year-old twins watch. It's mostly harmless. The only episode that was inappropriate for kids their ago was the one where they were trying to watch the scrambled porn channel. :)

    Still enjoying this season. Tonights episode with the mom teaching Adam to slow dance as part of Adams journey into teen-hood was hilarious and cringeworthy.

    Plus THE TALK in baseball terms. :up::up::up:

    I'm probably in a minority but Momma Goldberg is kinda hawt..
