TV Show Review: The World According to Jeff Goldblum

Synopsis: Actor Jeff Goldblum explores the history and cultures behind everyday items like bikes, gaming and tattoos and puts in his own observations.

Review: We started watching this Disney Plus documentary series a couple weeks ago because we couldn't find anything else that looked interesting and I knew my wife was a big Goldblum fan. As it turns out, it is a very entertaining series.


I think the thing I really like about this show is the way Goldblum looks at normal, everyday items most people (and shows) wouldn't even consider interesting. This includes things like coffee, bikes and denim. Some of the people he meets while exploring these things (such as a man who explores old gold mines in search of vintage denim clothing) are very memorable.

The series is actually much more educational than I was expecting it to be. For example, I never knew the Amish made up a good chunk of the workforce constructing American recreational vehicles until I saw this show or just how much money people would spend in an effort to buy the perfect pair of sneakers. I actually find myself starting conversations over something I've seen on this show and that's not something that happens often.

Goldblum himself makes this series worth watching. I love how he manages to include a little bit of his trademark quirkiness when exploring his topics. This adds a bit of a comedic effect while still being serious enough to be educational. As a result, even though I picked this show out primarily for my wife, we both enjoy it equally. And, now that we are all caught up on it, I can't wait until the next episode.

My Grade: A
