‘The World According to Jeff Goldblum’ is developed by National Geographic and airs on the Disney streaming platform, Disney+. The documentary web television series follows its host Jeff Goldblum as he experiences the world through his own eyes. He presents his personal viewpoints on subjects and shares his POV on things, based on his knowledge gathered over the years. Goldblum had this to say about the show, “It’s not as if I do some extra homework/research/bone up on it so that I tend to know something about it and then tell you about it. No, it’s not like that.”

What is The World According to Jeff Goldblum About?
We already know Jeff Goldblum for his appearances in a gamut of movies since decades. He is also famous for his charismatic personality when it comes to interviews and talk shows. And in TWATJG, we witness yet another side to this versatile actor’s persona. Goldblum takes us on a virtual ride to explore regular things as he talks with people, cracks jokes, goes on a shopping spree, and even tries things he has never done before. We have never seen him in a reality show, walking on streets, and hence, TWATJG definitely offers an impressive start.
Each episode approaches an apparently regular thing that we are so used to in our lives. It picks up our favorite items like sneakers or ice creams and then explores their history and evolution though the years. It’s surprising how these familiar items have so many remarkable connections, fascinating science, and extraordinary people behind their journey.
‘Watching The World According To Jeff Goldblum’ is not only about insights. It is also about the host’s reactions to facts as he learns new information. There are obviously doses of interesting factoids and behind-the-scenes looks, which make the episodes engaging. In one episode, we follow Goldblum as he makes a trip to the laboratory of “Shoe Surgeon” Dominic Ciambrone. However, as viewers, we don’t get all the information presented directly. The show filters this learning through Goldblum’s reaction and his raw excitement for almost about everything and anything.
Each episode opens with Goldblum’s voiceover, where he introduces the topic to be explored in the next 30 minutes. He then holds discussions with experts, conducts experiments, and is amazed as he gains new insights. In the sneaker-specific episode, the host first travels to a convention, unboxes multiple products, and tells us about this signature fashion. We then witness Goldblum and his crew entering Adidas’ sport science department, where he discloses some additional facts.
So, if you want to gain a fresh perspective on the common things of everyday use, you should give this curiosity-filled series a try. The show brings in good, original content since it is produced and created by National Geographic. Additionally, the added star power makes TWATJG more entertaining. It gives us a detailed outlook about the origins of some of the most iconic consumer brands and products — as narrated through a celeb who quite does not behave like one.
