Goop has no intention of pulling back on its claims or bending to any criticism at all. It seems that the flattening and appropriation of self-care isn't going to end any time soon...

Even if you're doubtful of Goop, the Netflix series is enticing because you'll want to know how off the rails it runs. Spoiler: by the final two episodes, those rails are a distant memory.

Star's "wellness" series a mixed bag; has drugs, nudity.

If this is about relieving anxiety, then why am I so stressed out...

Sadly, as the show progresses, things become unmoored from reality until, in the worst episode of them all, we are asked to believe that communicating with the dead is possible.

We could go episode by episode, breaking down each idea that The Goop Lab presents as fact - but it might be a waste of time.
January 27, 2020
The show isn't cynical, funny or self-knowing enough for my taste.

For those of us who realize that adrenal fatigue isn't a medical diagnosis and appreciate crystals solely for their beauty, it's hard to get too far into any episode of The Goop Lab...
January 24, 2020
...like with the brand's other controversial moments, The Goop Lab appears to have been created in a vacuum, where the wide world of already available media was not considered.
January 24, 2020
It is the cult of the individual taken to its logical conclusion. It is the zenith and nadir of late western capitalism.

There are few surprises in The Goop Lab: The show is as silly and grating as expected, and Paltrow doubles down on the polarizing persona she's cultivated for the last decade and a half as Hollywood's most famous woo-woo peddler.
January 23, 2020
It's a crashing bore. And with its stylish but unreadable fonts and the show's next-level self-absorption, ultimately unwatchable.
January 23, 2020
The Goop Lab isn't even worth hate-watching, it's so anger inducing.
January 23, 2020
A three-hour-long pseudoscience marathon, The Goop Lab is ultimately an infomercial.
January 23, 2020
In addition to being potentially dangerous, the goop lab is also just boring television.
January 22, 2020
Personally, I think it's one of the creepiest things I've ever seen on television.
January 21, 2020
To watch The Goop Lab as a series, with its arcing assumptions about the limitations of medical science, is also to wonder where to locate the line between open-mindedness and gullibility.
January 17, 2020
It's almost impressive how aggressively obnoxious the first episode is.

One big problem with most of Goop Lab, though: It's boring. The camera cuts to someone sensitively nodding often enough to suggest an Eric Andre-ish running joke.

At one point I was watching six beautiful, slim people with perfect bikini waxes (and the swimsuits to show them off) doing yoga in the snow, and wondering what the hell I'm doing with my life.
