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.
