Series info and format
An American science documentary series, Outrageous Acts of Science has been broadcast on Science since 2012. The current seventh season premiered on October 26, 2016. The show is produced by October Films and Discovery Communications International, and executive produced by Wyatt Channell, Denman Rooke, Helen Hawken, Tom Gorham, Lucy Pilkington and Elizabeth McIntyre.
Every episode of the scientific documentary program is a collection of popular Internet clips, and an explanation of the scientific facts that make whatever is featured in the videos possible. The focus on science is maintained through extended commentary from experts who explain the glorious hands-on experiments, stunts and curious occurrences, both man-made and natural. Season seven touches upon such topics as whether certain scientific discoveries were accidental and explores the most impressive discoveries on the internet. More crazy viral videos that feature home-grown experiments, more comments from real-life scientists and more admiration for human ingenuity are featured in the current installment of this popular show.
Viewership, criticism and chances of renewal
Outrageous Acts of Science has a solid 7.4/10 IMDb score. The current seventh season`s viewership ratings are hovering just below the 0.4 million mark with a 0.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic. Some criticism of the show stems from the fact that it interlaces some truly curious visual material which really does require a scientific explanation with some more primitive videos that can be easily explained away by using common sense or very basic concepts. This is apparently done just to fill the time frame of the episodes. Another aspect that came under criticism is the quality of YouTube material used. In any case, Outrageous Acts of Science does have a loyal fan following, and as of now it seems to be numerous enough to carry it into another season. Let`s wait and see what the network decides.
