The Goldbergs “La Biblioteca Es Libros / Just Say No” Season 2 Episode 19-20 airs Wednesday, April 15th at 8:30 p.m. & 9:30 p.m. ET/PT on ABC. In tonight’s first episode, much to Beverly’s surprise, she cannot believe Adam is failing Spanish class and blames his teacher. Beverly speaks with Senora Taraborelli and pays her to tutor Adam instead of putting him in remedial Spanish. But the situation backfires when Adam gives an oral presentation and totally bombs. Meanwhile, Barry gets a job delivering pizzas to impress Murray but Erica is upset Murray doesn’t acknowledge she’s had a job and has been responsible all throughout her teen years.
In tonight’s second episode, as the presidential election approaches, Erica finds herself strongly supporting candidate Walter Mondale. After learning Beverly always votes for whomever Murray tells her to vote for, Erica sets out to educate her mother and goes horribly wrong when Beverly favors another candidate. Meanwhile, Barry wants to appear on an athletic game show to prove his prowess after losing a wrestling match.

Show Summary: Before there were parenting blogs, trophies for showing up and peanut allergies, there was a simpler time called the ’80s. For geeky 11-year-old Adam (Sean Giambrone), these were his wonder years, and he faced them armed with a video camera to capture all the crazy. The Goldbergs are a loving family like any other — just with a lot more yelling. Mom Beverly (Wendi McLendon-Covey) is a classic “smother,” an overbearing, overprotective matriarch who rules this brood with 100% authority and zero sense of boundaries. Dad Murray (Jeff Garlin) is gruff, hot-tempered and trying to parent without screaming. Sister Erica (Hayley Orrantia) is 17, hot, terrifying and not one to mess with. Barry (Troy Gentile) is 16, an overly emotional teen with severe middle child syndrome. Adam (Sam Giambrone) is the youngest, a camera-wielding future director who’s crushing on an older woman. Rounding out the family is beloved grandfather Al “Pops” Solomon (George Segal), the wild man of the clan, a shameless Don Juan who’s schooling Adam in the ways of love. When Pops buys a new sports car and offers his Caddy to middle child Barry, it’s enough to drive this already high-strung family to the brink of chaos.
