It's easy to see how Goldberg—creator of Family Ties and Spin City—succeeded in TV. He tells the story of his journey from penniless student to media hotshot with sitcom-style humor and warmth, and all the bumps along his path get smoothed out nicely. His feud with Michael J. Fox? They made up, and Fox remains "the other love of my adult life." His adored wife Diana's life-threatening illness? Cured; they're now living happily in Vermont. Goldberg's an enormously appealing narrator, with fun tales to share about Spielberg, Fox and others. His life has been charmed, but it's impossible to begrudge it. By Ubu's end, you just want to call him up and ask to be in his show.
