This comic celebration of the chaos of family life continues with Mum and Dad trying to have a quiet meal out. But first they have to escape the house – which won’t be easy, given that their six-year-old daughter feels they’re being financially irresponsible by dining out during a credit crunch. The evening does not go well. Dad is soon revealing that he’s been checking out something he shouldn’t on the internet, their eldest son Jake is being advised on why he should never invade Russia, and Ben is refused entry to an imaginary restaurant.

Series Description: Outnumbered follows the battle of wills between two parents and their three young children, who are seemingly locked into a never-ending contest to see just whose patience will run out first. Testing theories such as not buying broccoli to save money on the weekly shop, and whether or not Jesus should have used his superpowers to combat Herod, the kids ponder the imponderables in the part-improvised comedy that shows how living with kids can provide at turns the funniest and the most cringe worthy experiences available to us all.
Many will recognize how the parents (Hugh Dennis and Claire Skinner) are just attempting to raise their kids with the minimum of emotional damage for all concerned. In the series, the family negotiates hangovers, chess, sex education, colonoscopies, therapy, re-enactments of World War II, and the sun screening properties of kangaroo saliva.
