Ounumbered S5 Episode 2
Outnumbered returns for the second episode of the 5th series. Everything is hectic as usual and unforgivable as the printer goes bust, eldest son gets driving lessons and insists for a paid instructor, Ben has a fascination in knuckle cracking and psychology theories whilst Karen remains distant from her ‘family of losers’ when Pete messes things up and causes controversies at her swimming gala.
As a teenager, and since the children are now teenagers, it is a relatable programme now. The boy who plays Ben (Daniel something, I think it was Roche I can’t remember) is now eye candy so there is always an excuse for fangirling after a long Wednesday.
This episode gave what the last one lacked. Humour. It was funnier in a way that the antisocial dinner was somewhat hilarious to watch.
The main concern of Outnumbered, however, I thought that in some places it was more of a nearly all teenager soap opera rather than a TV show. Great show, in fact it is sometimes like I am watching myself (as my Mum would say- too close to comfort). Who doesn’t want to watch a programme which they can relate to, eh?
Other than that, I think this episode is funny and relatable, especially when Ben plays on his games console- it cracked me up because my younger brother is just like that (I mean he loves games)
