Imagine a half-hour Apartments.com commercial and you have some idea what to expect here. I found it mostly annoying.

Nov 11, 2019 | Full Review…

Never has general-knowledge TV looked nearly so offbeat, droll, bohemian, and Hollywood A-list.

Apr 29, 2020 | Full Review…

Goldblum seems very much in life the talkative eccentric hepcat he is in pictures - it's impossible to tell when he's on script or just telling you what he knows. I would subscribe just to watch more of this.

Nov 13, 2019 | Full Review…

'If I were the meat in a Korean barbecue, what would I be?' is the kind of kooky question actor Jeff Goldblum (above, left) pops out as he lets his butterfly mind flutter where it may in this haphazard but endlessly entertaining documentary series.

Mar 25, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It's a thought-provoking series, and loaded with personality. How no one thought of giving Jeff Goldblum his own show before this is beyond me.

Mar 25, 2020 | Full Review…

The World According to Jeff Goldblum is the perfect showcase for Goldblum's considerable natural curiosity.

Jan 17, 2020 | Full Review…

With good production value, ranging from cinematography to fun graphics packages, the show quickly teaches through visually dynamic stories.

Nov 29, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

An eccentric, globe-trotting documentary series.

Nov 22, 2019 | Full Review…

Let's be honest, eccentric Goldberg brings each subject to life, peppering the factoids with astute and offbeat observations and his trademark, sometimes hyper-enthusiasm.

Nov 20, 2019 | Full Review…

The World According to Jeff Goldblum feels like infotainment from a bygone era.

Nov 15, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Though it's miles away from Parts Unknown, The World According to Jeff Goldblum is perhaps the closest new program to capture that indescribable sense of discovery and pleasure and to deliver it through such a wildly magnetic personality.

Nov 12, 2019 | Full Review…

In the context of a Disney+ documentary series? Goldblum's creepy-charming vibe slips ever so slightly toward the creepy.

Audience Reviews for The World According to Jeff Goldblum: Season 1

  • Jan 05, 2021
    So fantastic. Where so many things are about appearance or drama, this is just about learning a few weird facts about things you k ow while being endlessly entertained by a man that is so unbelievably odd and quirky you cannot help but to smile and melt for him a little. Highly recommend
  • Jul 05, 2020
    The world according to Jeff Goldblum (i.e. mostly California or Texas) involves picking a random item, stroking chin, going to a fan festival dedicated to that thing, eyeballs dart side to side, idea's coming (what ideas? Doesn't matter), state the obvious (e.g. ice cream reminds people of childhood or tattooes are about your identity). There is little to learn in this series besides Jeff Goldblum's mannerisms.
  • Apr 02, 2020
    If you are a fan of Jeff Goldblum fan then you will enjoy The World According to him. It is very educational but I wish he sought to interview more experts.
  • Mar 29, 2020
    Good for the whole family and interesting. Love Jeff, obviously the main draw to watch the series. Love his eccentricity!
  • Jan 04, 2020
    Goldblum is quirky and it gives you a very different vibe for a mini documentary for each episode. The information is good and fresh and interesting.
  • Dec 21, 2019
    This show is insane. I love it. Jeff is sending out vibes of awkward ecstacy in to the universe for our entertainment. I love the moments in the show where he is trying to make someone feel weirded out. Jeff you are my hero.
  • Dec 20, 2019
    Fun and weird. A celebration of human beings and how we live
  • Dec 20, 2019
    Jeff Goldblum is always a win!
  • Dec 18, 2019
    I found myself cringing more than enjoying the show. He comes across very narcissistic.
  • Dec 12, 2019
    So fun, so enjoyable, love Jeff, he's awkward, he's lanky, he's funny, and I feel like I'm learning this with him. Love it!
