Outnumbered

There’s been a new comedy show on BBC the past few nights on 22:35 about a middle class family trying to raise three kids normally and encountering all sorts of problems. The kids are the real focal point of the show; very good acting with real believability. I love it when kids go “but why?” and you can see the parents smiling at them through gritted teeth, just about to lose it completely.

One kid is a pathological liar, and absolutely shameless about it to boot, the smallest keeps asking metaphysical questions (“Are shadows made of atoms as well?”) and another sulky teenager seems to be quite Machiavellian.

Not side-splitting, but good to watch. If only the supporting cast weren’t so cardboardy.

  1. I’ve watched a few of those, when channel 4 has let me down. The little girl is just adorable!
