It's Boxing Day in the Brockman household and Santa has paid a visit, along with some burglars. While Mum and Dad try to maintain some festive spirit, Ben wreaks havoc with a mechanical hand, Jake argues the case for pirated music and Karen is busy writing New Year's resolutions not for herself, but for the rest of the family... and Barack Obama.
- Outnumbered: The Christmas Special 2009 review by JD
This does not have a wordsmith's script like Not going out nor does it have witty banter or comedic characters. Its humour is in its ability to see the absurdity in ordinary family life, to see the pointless stupidity without being depressing and people's humanness without being 2 dimensional. In a very ordinary and British way it is funny.
