‘Firmly established as a jewel in the BBC's comedy crown..’ The Daily Mail

“It remains by a long distance the finest mainstream British sitcom of recent years...’ The Guardian

Herein lies all four series and the 2009 Christmas special of Britain’s favourite comedy series, Outnumbered. That’s four school years of spookily familiar and often bafflingly surreal family dilemmas, traversed by Pete and Sue Brockman and their brood.

From the seemingly innocent, “can I have a biscuit?” to progressive theological debate, “what would Jesus do if someone stole his mobile?” Outnumbered has redefined the family comedy by bringing it closer to home.


2009 Christmas Special

“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.

With guests arriving, some welcome, some not, the pressure is on Dad to get lunch on the table. But where’s Grandad?”

Saw a few episodes of this on TV and decided to get the whole box set as I found it so funny. Interesting to see as they all grew up and the difference is quite marked for Karen. By the end of the last series it seemed to me it had gone as far as it could and the "cuteness" and clever remarks had lost their freshness. The box set is a great way to capture what made it such a special series. The great logical responses to the adults comments and the literal understanding was hilarious and really made you think about how ambiguous some of our statements are to kids. Another great British production - cannot see how an American copy of this can come close to the clever dialogue the Brits write and the other great thing about this series is it is partially improvised - sometimes I wonder how Pete keeps a straight face at some of the things the kids say. A great series to have and one that should be watchable for many years to come.

My seven year old daughter watched an episode of this series at a friend's house and asked if we could get the DVD. After having resisted for days, we finally watched an episode on LoveFilm. After a couple of minutes the rest of us were totally hooked; this is an acute and hilarious insight into family life like no other I've seen.

Somehow the writers and the actors have nailed the uncertainties, insecurities and general feeling of living-on-the-edge-of-catastrophe which is the backdrop to (I guess) a lot of families' existences in the new millenium. Of course, the drama is underpinned by an effortless humour which is quite infectious.

Although kids seem to love this, it's definitely for adults too - I was convinced that it wasn't for me to start with as I don't usually watch sit-coms, so if you haven't seen it I'd urge you to give it a go.

The set is presented in book form with clear perspex 'pages', which makes locating individual DVDs easy and straightforward.

Good price for hours of entertainment.

This show is based around Brockmans, a couple and their extremely intelligent and funny children who constantly outnumber and outwit them. You have Jake, the oldest child who is very sarcastic, then you have Ben who is very hyperactive. Then you have Karen, the youngest child, and in my opinion the cleverest whom constantly outwits her parents.

The best episodes are in the first 3 series. Lots of the scenes are improvised, so the young actors/actresses can make alot of their dialogue up. This makes alot of the scenes very natural and free flowing. One of my favorites scenes is in the first series, when Karen (aged around 4/5) asks her mum if she can keep a nit as a pet. So funny!

A really funny comedy.

We did not view the series when they were first shown on TV. We thoroughly enjoyed watching the DVD. Half hour programmes are great and there are too few of them! We loved seeing how the children developed throughout the series. Simply wonderful! The series deserves awards.

I got into 'Outnumbered' during the latter series and when I watched repeats on the telly, I wondered why I didn't see it before. I now have the box set (series 1-5) and I watch this a fair bit. The Brockmans are easy to like and relate to and the kids are amazing. I like the fact that this show is part-unscripted as it gives it a bit more of a 'real' feeling. Enjoyable and recommended to anyone who likes 'Outnumbered' and does not have any of the previous DVDs or to anyone who likes TV comedy with a bit of a difference.

Bought as present for kids. They love it and watch it most days. Suitable for anyone who likes the show and better value being a box set.

Great once you get into it. Characters very amusing, all of them. Bit slow at first but if you persevere then it is worth it.
