Conspiracy theories, sex education, psychotherapy, colonoscopies, astrology and kangaroo saliva. These are just a handful of the obstacles that the Brockman family must negotiate in the third series of the multi-award winning comedy Outnumbered. In this new series Karen busies herself recreating Britain's Got Talent and introduces her family to the wonderful world of superstition, Ben tackles the school chess league in his own ineffable style and mum worries that Jake's healthy interest in the girl-next-door is turning unhealthy. Meanwhile, Dad is grumbling about an ailment that much to the children's amusement, may require some invasive investigation. To make things even more uncomfortable, Gran has come to stay and made the family a generous offer that may be difficult to refuse. And there are rocky waters ahead after Pete makes a very foolish mistake.

I can only guess how they can get such young children to be so funny. It can't be scripted but the humour is very subtle. It works for just about any age group. There were less than perfect moments for me however, mainly the use of awkwardness. An American therapist pushing his beliefs, the revelation of infidelity and the messiness of previous divorces are only good counterpoints to humour in moderation. Overdone they are dower and repulsive. Otherwise easily a 5 star for side splittingly funny.
