This British-made sitcom is about a middle-class couple raising three rambunctious and somewhat unruly young children. The show takes its name from the parents being "outnumbered" by the children. Many of the story arcs explored on the show focus on the chaotic situations that are a natural part of parenting. The show's run time is 30 minutes. Although some of the show is written beforehand, a significant portion is improvised, particularly within the children's interactions amongst themselves. Producers felt the improvised speech helped to communicate authenticity. Critical reception was generally favorable, with high ratings from both users and critics at imdb.com. Praise for the show often highlights the realistic portrayal of children and family life, the unique approach of including improvised dialogue, and the frequency of plot points meant to illuminate and celebrate the more mundane moments of life. The show received several nominations and awards for outstanding television programming within various British television recognition ceremonies.
