Prepare to be thrown for aGoop.

Netflix’s “The Goop Lab” (outJan. 24) shows the staff of the lifestyle brand – including founder and Oscar winnerGwyneth Paltrow– exploring awellness topic in each of its six episodes. It is, at times, as eccentric asthe docu-series’ poster, which seemingly depictsPaltrow inside a vagina, whichcaused a stir on Twitter.

Episodes explorepsychedelic psychotherapy,Wim Hof’s mind-over-matter method, female pleasure, aging, energy fields andmediumship. Speaking to Goop’s mission, Paltrow recentlytold USA TODAY: “We helppeople get closer to themselves (and) open minds to ways (they) might get closer to themselves.”

In the series, Paltrow offers nuggets from her personal life, where the mom whohonestly spoke about what jerks teenagers Apple and Moses can bereally shines.For example, did you know Paltrow had a”very, very emotional” experience while trying MDMA in Mexico? Or that her cleanses are not kid-approved? “My kids are gonna bum out,” she says, examining a new diet plan.”Every time I do a cleanse they’re like, ‘Oh no!’You get all grumpy.”

She apparently started Goop because she felt her calling to be “something else, besides, you know, making out with Matt Damon onscreen,or whatever.”

Early in each episode, onscreen text warns the content should be viewed as entertainment.

“The following series is designed to entertain and inform – not provide medical advice,” it reads. “You should always consult your doctor when it comes to your personal health, or before you start any treatment.” (Paltrow’s brand isn’t free from controversy. In 2018,the company paid $145,000to settle a consumer protection case brought by California state officials over unsubstantiated health claims for a trio of products.)
