ABC's The Goldbergs is a love letter to show creator Adam F. Goldberg's childhood in the '80s and the decade itself. Because of Mr. Goldberg's love affair with the '80s and everything contained therein, our beloved Transformers have made a few appearances on the show and have even been a major part of the plot lines.
This week's episode just so happens to be one of those episodes and tackles the touchy subject of worrying about life and death, from a child's point of view. What better time to go see Transformers: The Movie?!
After watching the film with his best friend and hero, his grandfather Albert, Adam decides to film his own sequel to Transformers: The Movie and it's in this portion of the show that we really see just how much the thought of death impacts a child, and brings a poignancy to the episode. Also, it totally covers the death of Optimus Prime and speaks for an entire generation of kids (who are now adults) who sat there crying inside and out.
