Shame about Outnumbered
15 December 2012 | by richjohnstonSee all my reviews

Blessed would have been forgivable... if it hadn't been followed by Outnumbered from the same TV channel, which immediately exposed Blessed and its treatment of the family as a complete fraud. In Blessed, the kids spoke with obviously dubbed phrases. In Outnumbered they were allowed to be actual actors. The difference was stunning.

For all that, Ben Elton's observations on the recording industry and its inherent corruption and stupidity as as sharp as Elton's observations on television production in Inconceivable.

It's a shame that the comedy that wrapped around them both was so insipid, although much of that was insipid. Lovely song to sing to your kids in bed though. "Dream whistle blowing..."
