Tuesday on TV: They've got 'Star Wars' fever on 'The Goldbergs'

In this week's episode of The Goldbergs (8 p.m., ABC/Ch. 4), Adam is desperate to see "Return of the Jedi."

The show has always been vague about what year it is, other than letting us know it's set in the 1980s. But "Jedi" was released in 1983.
