Product Description

Product Description

‘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?”


Special Features
Series 1: Interviews with the cast, Andy Hamilton & Guy Jenkin
Series 2: Comic Relief Special, Out-takes, Extended Scenes, Deleted Scenes
Series 3: The Making of Series 3, The ‘Real’ Outnumbered, Sport Relief Sketch
Series 4: Alternative Scenes, Deleted Scenes and Comic Relief Sketch

Comic Relief and Sport Relief sketches appear courtesy of Comic Relief.

By Red on Black TOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 28 Aug. 2010
Format: DVD
There once was a time when it appeared that American comedies such as "Roseanne", "Malcolm in the middle", plus cartoons like the Simpson's and Family Guy were essentially wiping the floor with some of the bland domestic comedy from the UK such as the rather lazy "My family". Then out of the blue came the brilliant "Outnumbered" first shown on the BBC in 2007. This series is special in so many ways, with razor sharp scripts from Andy Hamilton and Guy Jenkin which move away from the terrible smug cosiness of some sitcoms and emphasize the sheer dysfunctional nature of families, which is of course offset by those special moments when it all appears to make sense. Add to this the extra dimension of experimentation present in "Outnumbered" with the children using elements of improvisation and the world viewed through their own unique "lenses" and this is a show which screams quality and brilliance. Set in the West London home of the "Brockman's" we have Hugh Dennis and Claire Skinner as the overburdened father and mother who are expertly cast and both brilliantly able to strike the right note of incredulity, frustration and outright defeat. The couples household arguments about the right way to stack cups in a dishwasher or the rules of writing appointments on a calendar are mini classics in their own right. Skinner's edgy relationship with her awful new age sister Angela is joy to watch especially in the Wedding episode while Dennis's portrait of a disillusioned history teacher and emerging grumpy old man ("Oh its the bin men, it must be a leap year") is pitched perfect. The fight at the tennis match in Series 3 nearly required a defibrillator in this household we laughed so much.

As for the children all three are superb.

I had watched the 3rd series of Outnumbered on tv, and really enjoyed it so thought that this box set would be brilliant. I was definitely not disappointed! The set is split into 5 discs (including the Christmas special), and there are special features on a few of the disks, like unshown scenes and interviews. If you want a good giggle at some light hearted comedy I would definitely recommend this set, it gives the whole family a laugh!

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 husband and I just love this series - it is sheer genius. The kids are brilliant given that they have to ad lib most of the time and the adult's response is amazing. This will go down as being an all time classic I'm sure - could watch over and over again.

I bought this for my wife. She has been a big fan of the series, right from its beginning and the 5 stars are from her. It is no exaggeration to say that she loves all of the children's characters, particularly that of Karen, the youngest. For myself, I find the children more than a little irritating but I do like the characters of the mother and father. I like the way that have to navigate, not always successfully, all that family and modern life throws at them whilst still trying to be "good parents". They are both well acted, particularly so by Claire Skinner.

However, this is not the main reason I have written this review. Either you like the series or you don't. There is not much that I can say that will change your mind. No, the main reason for writing this review is to say if you buy this THEN DO NOT BUY THE CHRISTMAS SPECIALS. Why? Well because all 3 of them are included with this. Not only have Amazon not included this in their description of the product they also include the Christmas Specials in "people who have bought this also bought" section and they offer one of the Christmas Specials in their suggested bundle!

As you may guess I bought the Christmas Specials as well as this. As they were a Christmas present I was able to return them during the Amazon post Christmas moratorium on unwanted gifts - which was good - but I still had to pay the return postage!

By Sid Nuncius #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 16 Nov. 2010
Format: DVD
This is a set of all three series so far (plus the Christmas Special) of this fantastically good comedy show. I wholeheartedly agree with "Red on Black's" excellent review above: every episode is just terrific, with hilarious comedy and some very shrewd observations on family life. The great, relentlessly logical Karen, the hyper-energetic and bonkers but utterly believable Ben and the quieter but no less brilliant Jake are all great comic creations. The parents are also completely believable, sympathetic and engaging while displaying all the normal human flaws, and the excellent Samantha Bond is fabulous as Sue's insufferably smug sister Angela.

Andy Hamilton and Guy Jenkin are two of our very best comedy writers, and their writing in Outnumbered is absolutely top-class. They have the ability to produce real belly-laughs while also showing great understanding and a genuine affection for their characters, and this bedrock of recognisable people and situations beneath the comedy is one of the things which makes Outnumbered exceptionally good and immensely popular.

The other thing is the performances, of course. The young actors improvise a good deal of the dialogue, which makes it incredibly lifelike because they talk like people their own age rather than adults in children's bodies as so often happens, and they do it fantastically well. Claire Skinner and Hugh Dennis also turn in great comic performances while remaining the programme's solid centre. Their unflashy excellence is a real joy.

If you already know Outnumbered, you won't need me to recommend this set - although I do, very strongly - and if you haven't yet discovered Outnumbered, there's a real treat in store for you here. It's brilliant.
