With Staff Picks, we would like to offer recommendations from our staff to you. These picks will be from a variety of reading, listening or viewing tastes. You might find stuff you've checked out before, or you might be intrigued enough to find a new favorite.
The Goldbergs [DVD] seasons 1 and 2
I realize that a lot of folks have fast internet with online television capabilities or satellite television. However, there are those who may live just outside the "fast internet zone," or those without a budget for these amenities. That is where your local library comes rushing in to save the day!
A lot of people don't realize just how much the library has to offer. We have complete seasons of television shows old and new! Even if we just have one or two seasons of a six season show you can also do a paper request to inquire if we are able to get the missing seasons you are interested in.
A new favorite series is The Goldbergs. This television series has several seasons. It is still currently running. Seasons one and two are available at your local library.
The Goldbergs is a hilarious television show based on a real family. It's almost like The Wonder Years, but it's from the 80's time frame. Our children enjoyed getting a glimpse into the way my husband and I were raised. We laughed together as a family and compared the way things were then to the way things are now. My kids also learned where we got some of our parenting techniques. They realized that maybe we aren't too strict, or unfair after all. Thank you Goldbergs for your hilarious accounts and quick witted retelling of part of our history! I encourage folks young & old to check this series out and spend some time reminiscing about the way things used to be.
Even though the Goldberg family may not be something you personally enjoy, I encourage you to check out other television series we might have. It's nice to have commercial free access!
If The Goldbergs interests you, feel free to request or check it out. We'll be back next Wednesday with a different Staff Pick.
