Stefan King: The Goldbergs Halloween

Get ready for the fun laughs and nostalgia of Halloween and a little 'Stefan King' which is the tile of tonight's show.

This episode of The Goldbergs has Adam contemplating horror writing which stems from his love & adoration of Stephen King. So Adam writes his own story. Something more close to home comes out of his creative thinking. It sends his mother into a 'proud of her son' frenzy and she wants to share it with her neighborhood book club. Lots of laughs on that part.

Another story arc is Erica who needs a date for her costume dance and ends up taking her brother Barry. A lot more laughs, embarrassment and heartfelt family support ensue. I won't give away too much of the story and supply a preview of a scene from tonight's show. Now as for the set visit and interview let me impart some of those details.


Sean Giambrone led the tour of the set and mentioned the details associated with The Goldbergs. It is clear that in order to capture the decade of the show many small fine details need to be present. Executive Producer (real life Adam) Adam F. Goldberg stated, "...the wig wasn't even set for Beverly's character..." That wig has now become one of the many important pieces of the show. It was also mentioned how costly some of the 'toys' in
Adam's bedroom set have been. Those are packed up daily so as to avoid anything going missing.

One key take away from the interview was that Adam wanted to make sure the moments or the memories he captured are present in the tv show. At the root of it all, the show is
about family, support and being able to give each other what they need at any moment in their lives. Family will be there to help cheer you up, showcase your talents to those around them as Beverly did with her son's writing and keep your best interest at heart.

The Goldbergs will make you laugh. It will definitely make you remember the Halloween spirit and above all else at the core of the show will be family. Be sure to watch the show tonight on ABC. Check your local listings for time.

Halloween With Dr. Ken

Is it a tale that has been told many times over? How about a typical Halloween show? Are there going  to be the usual jokes and references to Halloween in general? Well if you want to learn about the story of the Korean ghost named a 'gwishin' then tune-in to Dr. Ken tonight to see it on ABC. Read along for some details from my set visit and interview with the cast of the show.

So the start of the set visit for the Dr. Ken show gave a 'real life' home feeling. The
home layout and separate rooms are as any typical home may be. Details are evident here. Suzy Nakamura, who plays Allison Park on the show, stated that the various show departments pay attention to detail so much that a 'story board' of character outfits, inspiration and thematic references are always at the ready. This episode's 'story board was shown.

Now how can a ghost story be funny scary and folk tale-like all at the same time? You will need to tune in to Dr. Ken to find out. The show is more about family, life, growth and learning. A journey with this family with different cultural references with a lot of family and life situations. I'll let you in on a show topic before you see it. It pertains to learning to let go, to be present when needed and accept the maturation process.

If you want to see Ken Jeong play a role that is about family, fatherhood, work and more then tune in tonight on ABC for Dr. Ken. This Halloween episode will have many aspects to it so pay attention. I hope you enjoy the show as much as I did. Here is a sneak peek link just in case:
