It's great to have Outnumbered back after so long, but the children have all grown up and the show just isn't quite as good anymore. It's sad that this is the final series, but I can see why it is. There are funny parts, and the kids' ages mean some better acting, but Karen, for example, has changed dramatically and previously funny plot points just aren't quite the same anymore. That said, the series improved as it went along, and episode 5 is perhaps the funniest episode ever. The series had a great ending as well, with Spartacus being performed and the hamster found. If you loved Outnumbered before, you'll love this (especially the later episodes), but if you're new, watch series 1-4 first. There seemed like potential for series 6, but unfortunately we'll never get it.
