The Goldbergs Will Honor Ed Snider on TV Tonight
The Goldbergs is a great TV show on Wednesday evenings on ABC. Adam Goldberg grew up in Jenkintown, PA and based the show around his suburban Philly childhood. And it's hysterical.
Tonight, the episode will honor the late, great Ed Snider. The Philadelphia Flyers are well represented in the show most weeks, but tonight's episode will be a little more special. According to Philly.com, here's how the episode will play out tonight,
In "Big Orange," the favorite Flyers shirt of middle Goldberg Barry (Troy Gentile) is destroyed by his mother (Wendi McLendon-Covey) and girlfriend (AJ Michalka). (Goldberg referred to this act as "shirt murder.") When Barry figures out the shirt is missing, he's devastated.
"My brother did this; he wore his favorite Flyers shirt every day it was out of the wash," Goldberg said. "It got so worn, you could poke a hole in it. . . . The episode is ultimately about letting go of a piece of your childhood that you love.
The Goldbergs airs tonight on ABC at 8:30pm.
