The internet is a black hole. A never-ending vortex that sucks hours from our lives daily as we click on video after video in search of content gold.

A 20 to 1 countdown, Dr Karl’s Outrageous Acts of Science is an entertaining, fast-paced look at the world’s most amazing backyard experiments filmed by DIY Einsteins. And Dr Karl will breakdown the science behind these internet heroes’ attempts at greatness (or misadventure)!
But he’s not alone. Dr Karl has assembled a crack team of science experts and pop culture pundits who, in each episode, analyse and rate the 20 biggest and most epic viral videos to ever hit the web.
