Dad Murray (Jeff Garlin) is gruff, sometimes oblivious but with good intentions. Sister Erica (Hayley Orrantia) is 17, popular, terrifying and not one to mess with. Barry (Troy Gentile) is 16, an overly emotional teen with mad rap skills. Adam is the youngest, a camera-wielding future director with a love of all things "nerdy." Despite their family differences, "The Goldbergs" knows how to come together to churn out some new wave laughs.
