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 happens 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, Pete is suffering from a terrible hangover, and it seems worse as he struggles against a rising tide of superstition, astrology and conspiracy theories that seem to be taking over the family. Meanwhile, Ben takes time off from re-enacting the crusades to show a couple of prospective buyers around the house.

Comedy

It’s more family life in the raw in this innovative comedy as Pete and Sue grapple with some very adult problems (e.g. sexual jealousy, promotion, spiralling debt and mortality) while fielding the kids’ problems as well. In this episode, six-year-old Karen is preoccupied with the exact whereabouts of Satan, and Ben falls foul of a hardline football referee. Meanwhile, Dad is asked to write some propaganda, Mum tries to compete with the impossibly perfect supermum next door and Grandad is alarmed by TV shows that look down people’s toilets.

9:40pm Tuesday, April 17 on Prime

Comedy

This comic celebration of the chaos of family life continues with Sue and Pete trying to have a quiet meal out. But first they have to escape the house – which won’t be easy, given that six-year-old Karen feels they’re being financially irresponsible by dining out during a credit crunch. The evening does not go well. Pete is soon revealing that he’s been checking out something he shouldn’t on the internet, their eldest son Jake is being advised on why he should never invade Russia, and Ben is refused entry to an imaginary restaurant.

REV

Comedy

Meet The Reverend Adam Smallbone. He’s a Church of England Vicar, newly promoted from a sleepy rural parish to the busy, inner-city world of St Saviour’s in Hackney, East London. It’s a world he has no experience of. And it shows. It really shows. It is an impossibly difficult job being a good, modern, city vicar. And, equally, it’s a very hard job being married to one. Alex – Adam’s long-suffering wife – does her best to support him, but she’s got her own career as a solicitor to worry about. And she is no one’s idea of a conventional vicar’s wife. Anybody can and does come into St Saviour’s – and into Adam’s life.

From scheming MPs trying to educate their children on the cheap, to Colin, a heavy drinking, unemployable lost soul who is Adam’s most devoted parishioner. Every day throws up a new moral conflict for our vicar. Everyone always wants something from Adam – all the time. Even his supposedly supportive Lay-reader Nigel, a pedantic careerist with his eye on Adam’s job. In addition to caring for his flock, Adam has to worry about the financial burden of running a huge, decaying building – with a smashed stained glass window – and a dwindling congregation. He has to contend with hopeless volunteers, ambitious church rivals, the sinister attentions of the Archdeacon and the romantic attentions of Adoha, a renowned ‘cassock-chaser’ and church regular. In this premiere episode, Adam is elated when his dwindling congregation quadruples overnight, but the new worshippers have ulterior motives.
