‘The Goldbergs’ Head To Poconos
Fans of the hit ABC show ‘The Goldbergs’ may recognize a familiar, new setting for the Philly-focused, ’80s show on tonight’s episode — The Poconos. The Goldbergs will “get away from it all” when Erica Goldberg (Hayley Orrantia) and Geoff Schwartz (Sam Lerner) plan a secret romantic getaway to the Pocono Mountains to celebrate their Kiss-A-Versary. The episode airs at 8 p.m. tonight on ABC. As part of the episode, Geoff surprises Erica with a weekend getaway to the Pocono Mountains to celebrate their landmark anniversary while lying to his father about his whereabouts. After presenting his girlfriend with tulips, Geoff tells his love, “I also booked us a romantic getaway to the Poconos!” “The Poconos!” says Erica. “That’s the most scenic and budget-friendly mountain range ... This is amazing!” ‘The Goldbergs’ is based on executive producer Adam F. Goldberg’s experiences of growing up in a Philadelphia-suburban family in the 1980s. Goldberg often inserts recreations of his personal life into the show, including actual videos from his youth. “I remember all of the TV commercials in the 1980s encouraging people to ‘Get Away from It All’ and visit the Poconos for a romantic getaway,” said Goldberg in a news release. “I have amazing memories of skiing in the Pocono Mountains in the winter and attending summers there at Camp Echo Lark.” The show is in its sixth season. While ratings have dropped a bit for the show, it’s still a hit for ABC.
