‘Schooled': AJ Michalka Can’t Reveal First Homage Episode, but Wants to Do ‘Clueless’

Lainey (AJ Michalka) is going to try to prevent a “She’s All That” moment from happening on Wednesday’s episode of ABC’s new “The Goldbergs” spinoff, “Schooled.” But just because her character didn’t want to see a repeat of the makeover Freddie Prinze Jr gave to Rachael Leigh Cook in the classic rom-com, that doesn’t mean Michalka herself is opposed to packing as many ’90s homages into the ’90s-set series as possible. After all, “The Goldbergs” is known for its installments devoted to ’80s culture. “There is so much I would love to see,” Michalka told TheWrap, in the interview above. “I would love to see us do an Alanis Morissette episode where we honor her music. I would love to see maybe, like, an ode to ‘Clueless,’ where there’s a moment where we do a throwback to Alicia Silverstone’s character.”
