Show generally

Factual error: There is an episode where Reagan is running for president in 1984, and later in this episode they are watching "America's funniest home videos" which started in 1989.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In season one it says something along the lines of Lainey and her mum are at home. And then in a later season it says that her mum left 7 years ago. Later in another episode it says it's been 4 years.

Show generally

Factual error: Occasionally one of the characters will make a key reference to some film or other cultural event that took place in 1989 or later. Like the neighbor stating she saw Ghost, which came out in 1990.

Show generally

Factual error: The Phillies were in the World series in 1980. Talk into remote controls did not come out till 1989. The party in the park the kids are dancing to the song "Tricky" by Run DMC which came out in 1986.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: The Phillies were in the 1983 World Series as well (which is the likely year as they lost), and the Goldbergs didn't have a talk in remote - the kids said they had just to wind up their father.

Cowboys Suck! - S2-E12

Question: When Barry refers to the stop sign in his room he says "The stop sign where she wanted to go left and I wanted to go right, so I got nervous, went straight." As he was talking about Lainey, soon after Murray says "Well, let's get in the damn car. And bring the stop sign. We got to put it back. It's a serious crime." Is Barry's quote some kind of sexual innuendo, or is it that he actually, accidentally drove into it because of Lainey?

Answer: Not a sexual innuendo at all. Barry drove into it because he couldn't make a decision to either go his way or Lainey's way.
