Outnumbered follows the daily chaos of family life with two parents and three young children locked in an unequal contest. Containing strong elements of improvisation, this comedy is an honest portrayal of the well meaning parental incompetence that happens in most homes, as Mum and Dad attempt to raise their kids with the minimum of emotional damage for all concerned. From the creators of Drop The Dead Donkey, Andy Hamilton and Guy Jenkin, Outnumbered is quite unlike any other family comedy seen before.

For young children to portray so genuinely and clearly both the thought process of a child and the humour of the results of an intense family atmosphere is incredible. I imagine it was mainly acting talent of the 3 children though direction may have been important. Very life like, very amusing, and thought provoking.
