Who stars in The World According to Jeff Goldblum?

Umm, Jeff Goldblum, the celebrated actor, overall enthusiastic dude was widely regarded as the Internet’s boyfriend before Keanu Reeves swept in and stole the title away. You might know him from movies like Jurassic Park, The Fly, Independence Day and more recently, Thor: Ragnarok.

The World According to Jeff Goldblum review: Is it any good?

According to Rotten Tomatoes, yes. The docuseries currently has an 80% score, which translates to positive reviews. Critics mostly describe the show as feel-good and delightful, praising Goldblum for his enthusiasm and charisma.

The series was initially developed for National Geographic before moving over Jeff Goldblum’s world meshed with Disney+. That’s probably due to its nature. As a lot of critics pointed out, the series is more enjoyable than educational.

You’ll likely have a lot of fun watching Goldblum give into his child-like curiosity and you might even learn some new things, but the purpose of the series doesn’t seem to be to offer earth-shattering information. Instead, it relies on the actor’s charm to keep viewers coming back for more. According to early reviews, it also looks great, featuring solid camera work and dazzling animation sequences.

At the end of the day, it comes down to just how much you like Jeff Goldblum. If you’re a fan, this show is definitely a must-watch, as it enables the actor to brightly showcase his quirky personality. Otherwise, you might want to check out the first two episodes anyway and see if the show is a good fit for you. Disney+ comes with a seven-day free trial, so you have nothing to lose.
