Outnumbered

I am loving this British show! First saw it on Hulu. And it airs some nights on my local PBS station.

The kids are great - and the little girl Karen reminds me a lot of my "step-daughter" Courtney - who is blond, and has mild autism, so she's very...well, she's Karen.

Re: Outnumbered

I like the one at the wedding talking to the young priest...

"Why when King Herrod tried to kill baby Jesus didn't he just zap him?"

"Why when Jesus was being hunted by the Romans Why didn't he shape shift into a Roman?"

Re: Outnumbered

I love this show...esp. compared to most UK sitcoms (Wright Way, I'm looking at you). But as with all shows featuring kids, the danger is diminishing returns as children get older.

Re: Outnumbered

Well the Christmas Special this year held up.

The Kids are different, but still hilarious.

"You're a big boy! You should play rugby!"

"Oh no, I'm not allowed."

"Ha! ha! You're funny."

"No I'm serious, everyone's mothers got together and wrote a letter to the school asking me to stop."

Re: Outnumbered

What's even more impressive is that the kids are extemporising their lines.

ETA: As the videos aren't available in some areas, here is the text:

From The Long Night:
Karen: How can you not like somebody you've never met?
Sue: Good point, Karen.
Karen: Yes, you should only hate people you know.
Sue: Ye... er...
Karen: Like Miss Braybrook.
Sue: But you love Miss Braybrook! She's the reason you're Christian!
Karen: Not any more, that's all rubbish.
Pete: Rubbish is a bit harsh.
Karen: I don't believe in God anymore, I'm a Satanist.
Pete: I think that's an atheist. Satanists...do things to goats.
From The Dead Mouse:
Karen: Brethrens, we are gathered here in the bosom of Jesus to say goodbye to this, to this mouse, killed before its time. We have given it cheese and bread for its journey to heaven, or at least if it goes to hell, it'll have cheese on toast. Next up is the Pope. Dust to dust, for richer or for poorer, in sickness or in health, may the force be with you, because you're worth it, amen and out. Thank you, Pope.

Re: Outnumbered

Wikipedia says to expect a new series this year.

And they're shopping around the US pilot, which imdb says is two years old already.

Oh dear Gods please NO! I'm still trying to get the taste of the US pilot version of The IT Crowd out of my mouth...

Re: Outnumbered

Karen: One time I woke up and I only had four fingers like the Simpsons, and I went into Ben's room and he had - he had my finger sellotaped on, so he had - (counts quickly under her breath) he had six fingers all in one hand.
Pete: Are you sure that's a dream? That does sound like something Ben might do.

Karen: I think the world is unfair to women.
Sue: Well, absolutely. I think you're right. Often, it is.
Karen: Because women can't grow mustaches or beards.
Sue: You want to grow a beard?
Karen: Well, I might want to be a tugboat captain, or an ayatollah.

Re: Outnumbered

I found this show, examined the literature, assumed it was reality TV, and walked away in disgust. It might have been 2 years later that I re-evaluated my erroneous assessment and leapt in with two feet.

Re: Outnumbered

Outnumbered is much better than I ever expected it to be. I might just have to watch some.

Re: Outnumbered

It was just a thumbnail on a streaming site, and then a description about how awful their children were. That and since it was season 2 or 3, I assumed if it's something I liked, that I would have caught it during season one.

I've downloaded the pilot for "The city" once thinking it was a sitcom about a small town girl in he big city... Turned out to be a spin off from "The valley" with all those awful kids from E!
