12 year olds should be able to watch

I personally think that my 12 year old son should be able to watch outnumbered and I think it's a great show for 12 and up
age 12+


Hilariously highlights the ups and downs of parenthood in a mildly rude fashion. Would recommend.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5 ):
Kids say (18 ):

The series offers a humorous but thoughtful look into the world of parenting by filming it in a documentary style that allows the child actors to improvise what they say rather than following a written script.

Some viewers may be unaccustomed to the pace of the show, which moves slightly slower than than most American comedies. It also deals with some serious issues, like aging parents, bullying, racism, and learning disabilities. But despite all of this, it offers an intelligent and witty look at the imperfect world of middle class family life.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
