Positive Messages

Extreme sports are fun, and where they take place can be beautiful. Many are potentially dangerous. 

Positive Role Models & Representations

Some athletes, both male and female, thrive in extreme sports. Some are experts or elite athletes, while others are just enthusiasts. 

Violence

No accidents are shown, but it is noted that some outdoor sports can be extremely dangerous thanks to rugged terrain, riding down steep cliffs, and not following safety procedures.

Consumerism

Lots of sponsor logos, including brands like Red Bull, Michelin, Adidas, Red Fox Outdoor Gear, Apple, etc. Instagram and other social media referenced.

What's the story?

THE OUTDOOR SPORTS SHOW is a magazine show that features some of the world's most spectacular outdoor athletic events. From the Algarve Bike Challenge in Portugal and the German Jennerstier ski mountaineering race, to watching pilots compete in the World Paragliding Competition finals in Colombia, viewers get to watch as amateur and elite athletes participate in adrenaline-pumping outdoor sports. Athletes share details about each event, including the rules, risks, safety measures, and what makes it unique. They also share what they love about participating in the sport. Profiles of individuals involved in these kinds of sports in unique ways are also featured. 

Is it any good?

Each installment of this documentary-like series offers viewers an in-depth, and often first-hand, look at a range of heart-pounding outdoor sporting events and competitions. Spectacular video footage is featured in each episode's three segments. However, thanks to the show's magazine format, these images  are repetitive and too drawn out, mainly because they are designed to accompany the lengthy, and often dry, explanations of what goes on during each event. Die-hard extreme sports fans will find it worth the watch, but The Outdoor Sports Show just isn't as exciting as the sports phenomena it follows.
