Golden News for Goldblum Fans

Five new episodes of National Geographic’s The World According to Jeff Goldblum will stream on Disney+ from January 19.

The final instalment of the second season will uncover secrets behind:

  • Puzzles: From working with a team of escape room enthusiasts and landing planes to a wild jazz improvisation session with a marimba-playing robot, Jeff discovers how puzzles are the means through which we solve some of life’s greatest problems.
  • Backyards: Jeff measures perfectly manicured lawns and sets sail with swashbuckling pirates before scaling some of the tallest trees in the world and linking up with the Wood Wide Web. Along the way, he also helps a community garden and discovers how nurturing nature helps plants and humans to grow together.
  • Birthdays: From attending a heart-warming birthday party to partaking in some daredevil deeds with a septuagenarian, Jeff discovers why these special days are so memorable while making memories of his own … by walking across burning hot coals.
  • Tiny Things: From discovering how LEGOs help kids to be adults and adults to be kids to cooking a gourmet meal for a panel of discerning judges and diving for some marvellous microorganisms, Jeff reveals how these miniatures actually shape the world around us.
  • Motorcycles: Appreciate the freedom of the road, from a cliché-busting all-woman club to the cutting-edge customisation of electric motorcycles and the awe-inspiring journeys of one disabled motorcycling champion.

The first batch of episodes covered monsters, magic, dance, dogs and fireworks, and was favourably reviewed.

It averaged an 82% critics’ rating on Rotten Tomatoes, which summed it up thus: “While fans of the man will find much to like in this quirky and upbeat — if not terribly educational — docuseries, those not already attuned to his particular sense of style may not appreciate The World According to Jeff Goldblum.”
