Outnumbered follows the daily chaos of family life with two parents and three young children locked in an unequal contest (hence the title). Containing elements of improvisation, this comedy is an honest portrayal of the well meaning parental incompetence that hap pens in most homes, as Sue (Claire Skinner) and Pete (Hugh Dennis) attempt to raise their kids with the minimum of emotional damage for all concerned. Tonight, Karen recreates ‘Britain’s Got Talent’, Ben takes a close interest in Pete’s medical tests, Sue thinks Jake’s healthy interest in girls is becoming unhealthy, and the ghost of John McEnroe hovers over Pete’s Saturday morning game of tennis.
