List Of Outnumbered Episodes

This is a list of episodes for the British sitcom Outnumbered which is written, directed and produced by Andy Hamilton and Guy Jenkin, It is about a family where the parents are Outnumbered by their three children. The first series first aired between the 28 August and the 5 September 2007. A second series aired between the 15 November and the 27 December 2008. A Comic Relief Special, Christmas Special and Sport Relief special aired on the 13 March 2009, the 27 December 2009 and the 19 March 2010, respectively. A third series aired between 8 April 2010 and 20 May 2010. The fourth series aired between 2 September 2011 and 7 October 2011.

Unlike most British sitcoms, where one episode is shown per week, all six episodes of the first series aired over two weeks, three per week, at 10.35pm. On Wednesdays it aired at 10.40pm due to the midweek national lottery draw. This scheduling was partly inspired by an earlier series written by Hamilton called Bedtime, which was also broadcast in the same way. The fact that it was broadcast at a late time also meant that there was less pressure on it to attract high viewing figures. No-one can remember who suggested the scheduling format originally. The second series, however, was broadcast at 9.00pm on Saturday nights. The episodes contain recurring story lines; the main ones being Jake worrying about secondary school and later being bullied, Sue's rivalry with Angela after she begins to look after Grandad, as well as her relationship with Veronica, and Pete coming into trouble with his school after he makes a supposed racist comment to one of his pupils. There are also storylines about Ben's constant lying.

    A man’s interest in a single bluebird is worth more than a complete but dry list of the fauna and flora of a town.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Twenty or thirty years ago, in the army, we had a lot of obscure adventures, and years later we tell them at parties, and suddenly we realize that those two very difficult years of our lives have become lumped together into a few episodes that have lodged in our memory in a standardized form, and are always told in a standardized way, in the same words. But in fact that lump of memories has nothing whatsoever to do with our experience of those two years in the army and what it has made of us.
    Václav Havel (b. 1936)
