Outnumbered

Series 4 - Episode 2

Radio Times
Review by:
Alison Graham

Maybe it’s because the kids are growing up, but Outnumbered is starting to feel tired. It’s all just a bit too familiar now – the circular arguments and endless unanswerable questions from little, questing minds.

Still, the remorseless Karen dispenses brilliantly with one of those pesky, smiley charity “chuggers” and is a lesson to us all as she wears down his enthusiasm and leaves him a quivering husk.

Homicidal moppet Ben has tipped from being cute into being a brat with behavioural problems as he lays waste to the house after mum Sue takes umbrage at the sexist attitudes of her menfolk and has a girls’ day out with Karen.

About this programme

2/6. Sue grows tired of the boys' attitude to housework and pursues a campaign to civilise them, but it leads to Pete doing battle with a domestic appliance. Elsewhere, Karen has a tough time buying shoes. Comedy, starring Hugh Dennis, Claire Skinner and Tyger Drew-Honey.
