I really loved watching Season 1 of this series on Comcast On Demand. I would love to buy all the seasons and episodes on Blu-Ray or DVD, but I am prevented from doing so by the Region coding system since all the available items are Region 2 encoded and I live in the U.S.
I feel that the encoding system is customer-hostile, and makes no sense whatever for works which have been released for years, as these programs have been. Whoever the "genius" was who decided to place two major English-speaking countries in two different regions should be punished by being prohibited from enjoying any entertainment ever again.

The first season of this show was a hoot! The kids acting is so realistic to the way children act normally and the parents act like so many do; unconsciously overwhelmed. Plus the fact that British acting is so enjoyable to watch. The best character in this family is Karyn, the youngest 5 year old. She is so sweet and innocent and so funny! As parents, we couldn't stop laughing at all the episodes in this first season and we can't wait to see more of this show.

This is a super cute and very funny show, but unfortunately it's not available in a USA format and most likely won't for a long time. Life on Mars is another one that's really good that I cannot yet buy. Come on BBCA!!!!

Outnumbered raises the bar for domestic sitcoms. It's inspired, intelligent and hilarious. It absolutely captures modern times. I really can't watch the plodding Modern Family American shows. Each actor is strong and has great timing.

Some network here needs to import this. Perhaps Greg Daniels could be the executive producer. He's done a great job with The Office.

Just finished Season One of Outnumbered and must say, it is among the best casting for a sit-com in years. Brings back memories of what real family life is like with young kids in the house. Very believable child actors (a lot of improvisation it looks like - capturing the youngest especially being what a real 4 year old is like). The parents are equally believable and the scripting is top notch. Highly recommend it. Watched the entire series in one sitting and then showed it to my wife the next day and laughed all over again. Can't wait for the other seasons to become available!

I love this program. It's about a young couple a little overwhelmed, and often outhought, by their three children. I'd read that the children, for the most part, were not given actual lines to memorize, but a general idea about where the scene was to go. The whole thing has a natural feel instead of the practiced, child actory thing that too many sitcoms with childen have. Unfortunately, this seems to be the only year available in the U.S. And there are five more seasons that have been produced. PLEASE make them available if it's possible, Amazon!

One of the best British comedies. If you have children and liked The Office, you'll like this. The Office for parents.

The children are so real in this comedy, I found out it's because they don't really give them lines to memorize, they give them a situation and then the adults and kids improvise. But, the topics covered - e.g., a father with Alzhiemer's, new school, bullying, job issues, children's imaginations are so wonderfully handled. Definitely ahve recommended this one to my friends and family.
