‘The Goldbergs’ Episode Guide (Feb. 22): Beverly Tries to Make Adam a Film Star

“So Swayze It’s Crazy” (02/22/17) – After Adam sees his friend on television, he asks Beverly for her help to become an actor, so Beverly enlists his friend’s mom Edie, who is a kid talent agent in town.

Unfortunately, Edie insists Adam can only get “nerd” roles, so Beverly goes on a quest to make Adam a teenage heartthrob. Meanwhile, Barry decides to embrace the punk lifestyle, and Murray attempts to become more involved in Erica’s life, but it backfires, on “The Goldbergs,” WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 22 (8:00-8:30 p.m. EST), on the ABC Television Network.

Guest starring in this episode are Sam Lerner as Geoff Schwartz, Noah Munck as Naked Rob, Matt Bush as Andy Cogan, Kenny Ridwan as Dave Kim, Stephanie Katherine Grant as Emmy Mirsky, Sean Marquette as Johnny Atkins, RD Robb as Paul Sirochman, Susie Essman as Edie Robb, Eddie Pepitone as Tony the Deli Guy and Shayne Topp as Matt Bradley.

“So Swayze It’s Crazy” was written by Lacey Friedman and directed by Jay Chandrasekhar.

The VCR-loving, mixtape-making, spandex-wearing Goldbergs are back! For geeky and movie obsessed youngest child Adam (Sean Giambrone), his wonder years were spent documenting the hilarious and awkward antics of his colorful family.

Mom Beverly (Wendi McLendon-Covey) is at her best when she’s meddling, matchmaking and bedazzling her way through life, while Dad Murray (Jeff Garlin) parents from the comfort of his recliner in his underpants. Oldest sister Erica (Hayley Orrantia) dreams of being a pop star if she can only overcome her secret love of all things uncool.

Then there’s middle child Barry (Troy Gentile) who’s just as in touch with his emotions as he is with his sick rap skills, which is how he landed Erica’s best friend and the hottest girl in school, Lainey (AJ Michalka), as his girlfriend. Rounding out the brood is beloved grandfather Al “Pops” Solomon (George Segal), the wild man of the clan, a shameless Don Juan who enjoys family time with his grandkids almost as much as his weekly massages.

This season finds the siblings fighting off huggies, snuggies and nubbies, as they navigate what it means to grow up as a Goldberg.
