"The Goldbergs" Stefan King (TV Episode 2016) Poster

(TV Series)



Revealing mistakes 

On Halloween, while going through a Stephen King phase, Adam decides to write his own horror story about his over-bearing mother. After Beverly reads it and learns it is about her, she walks into his room with a meat tenderizer while Adam is dressing up as Pennywise from "It". Adam freaks out and begs her not to hobble him, a reference to Misery in which the main protagonist, Annie Wilkes uses a sledgehammer to break captive and bedridden author Paul Sheldon's ankles with a post placed in between them. However, this scene only happens in the 1990 released movie [In the Stephen King novel "Misery", Anne cuts off his foot with an ax and cauterizes the severed area with a heated iron and sterilizes it with iodine] and the series takes place sometime in the 1980's. The film has not been made yet.
