When Beverly was squirting ketchup on the meatloaf I was wondering when ketchup started coming in plastic squeeze bottles. Turns out it was 1983. So I guess I didn't catch them in a temporal inaccuracy.

I really like this show a lot too. It even got me to order a pair of Air Jordan's like Barry wears. The nostalgic look got to me and I decided I wanted another pair, and they're awesome.

I like it a lot now, too. The early tone deafness has been adjusted very nicely.

I dropped it after the pilot, but came back in the last few weeks and am enjoying it.

We love it. Great family show. How are the ratings? Is it going to get picked up for a second season?

I want to start incorporating the word "scrumptious" into my vocabulary more often after watching this show. This is, by far, one of my favorite new shows.

Very likely.

Did anyone else pause on the letter from the white house? It talked about how the guy writing it was afraid of the mother.

It's really a charming show. I like having these people in my home for a little while. I'm the right age group for this too, so all the references really strike a chord with me.

Love the show started weird but I am guessing that's cause they have to the setup the premise and the family, but it has hit a nice groove.

On side note anyone else wonder how the dad was able to do a guest appearance in 2 Broke Girls since he is a regular on this show?? wouldn't the contracts disallow that? I have seen lots of cable actors/actresses on primetime do appearances but never prime-time to prime-time...

Wayne Knight was on Seinfeld and 3rd Rock from the Sun at the same time. Those were at least on the same network, though.

Alsion Bree is on both Mad Men and Community. Two different networks. They probably film at different times though.

Michael J Fox on his own show on NBC and The Good Wife (although it's possible that his spot on The Good Wife was filmed after his show was cancelled on NBC).

The Goldbergs and Brooklyn 99 are my favorite two new comedies. Obviously very different types of sitcoms, but both hilarious. I can definitely relate to The Goldbergs. There's a lot of "us too" when we watch what happens there.

I think we are back in a good space with family sitcoms these days. We really enjoy The Middle, and Growing Up Fisher which are in this similar vein. Modern Family is a bit of a different family sitcom in that the family is less typical. But still funny.

I see the guy who plays Kripke on BBT all over television.

I think it's pretty cool that they don't seem to be locked in to one network anymore. OTOH, I think there are just a few entities that own ALL the channels on TV.

Anyway, as for 'The Goldbergs' - I just love this show still! Also love Brooklyn 99 and Growing up Fisher, from the new sitcoms of the last season.

I kind of recently started watching The Middle and like it but those are some of THE most unlikable kids of all time for me. I just want to kill Axl. I used to like Brick but he's just as much of a sh*t as Axl, and Sue is as annoying as that Progressive character Flo. But I'm still watching, so I guess that says something.

The one I wish I had checked out in the beginning is 'Modern Family'. I have yet to see an episode because by the time it came into my radar it was on a while and I am kind of neurotic about coming into a show in the middle. So, it's on my mental list of shows to check out on Netflix, or wherever I can get it from the beginning.

It's in syndication, but the order they play (at least around here) seems pretty random, so you probably wouldn't like that.

Thanks, NYC. That's how I got caught up on 'The Middle' - kind of. It was a bit of a jumble, but close enough to get to know the characters and there was very little that was 'serial' in this one.

I think Modern Family is more of a show so I'm going to make sure I can start at S01 E01 and go from there.

I think you're in luck (assuming you're not a cord cutter like me). According to IMDB, it looks like USA is showing them in order on Saturdays in a 3-hour block. The first six episodes are on this Saturday, 4/5.

Edit: hmm, not so much -- looks like they start jumping around a bit next Saturday. I'm having the same problem with BBT on a local channel -- they're all over the place showing those episodes.

I recorded all the Modern Families on 3 different channels and in about a month I had 100 unique episodes, all jumbled up though, no particular order. There's still some gaps so I'm waiting until I get those.

It's times like this I REALLY wish that TiVo offered a Sort By Episode number instead of just Alphabetical and By Date of Recording. You can "Explore" the show and get them in order that way, but it is really slow and I wish I could do it in the My Shows list.

As for Goldbergs, it's become my top new show of the season. So much fun!

I will say, as someone who's watched Modern Family since the beginning, you really don't need to watch from the beginning to get the gist. It is not a serialized show by any means. That said, of course if you watch from the beginning you'll see the kids when they were younger and how certain people came into the family. But it's not really that big of a deal.

Now back to The Goldbergs

Yep I did pause as well. The letter was funny! Too bad we couldn't see the whole thing since it wasn't all shown in the frame.

Still loving this show.

Bev always cracks me up, as does Barry the older brother. Sometimes it can be hit and miss, but for the most part I get a good laugh out this show fairly consistantly. Glad it's been renewed.

For some reason the part that cracks me up most is when they do the occasional blurred out cussing stuff...Like last night when Bev was convinced that Barry was going to be Daddy Warbucks in the schools play of Annie.

Bev: "You're going to be Daddy "bleepin" Warbucks!?"

My own odd reaction last night was when Pops suggested he could play the villager sitting in the back going "like this" with the arm movement. I don't know why, probably Segal's perfect delivery, but I laughed for about a minute on that one.
