Outmatched is a new family sitcom that premiered in 2020 on FOX, starring Jason Biggs, Maggie Lawson, Tisha Campbell, and a cast of talented child actors. The series revolves around a working-class couple, Mike and Kay, who are raising three genius children: Nicole, Brian, and Marc.

As parents, Mike and Kay are constantly struggling to keep up with their gifted children, who never fail to outsmart them. Nicole is a math prodigy who can solve complex equations in her head, Brian is a tech whiz who can hack into any system, and Marc is a gifted athlete with a photographic memory. Despite their intelligence, the kids struggle to fit in socially, and often feel isolated from their peers.

Mike and Kay are determined to give their children a normal upbringing, but they often find themselves at odds with the school system, which is ill-equipped to handle the challenges of raising gifted kids. They also face resistance from their own families, who are jealous of their children's abilities and resentful of the time and attention they require.

The show is a blend of physical comedy, irreverent humor, and heartwarming family moments. The cast is uniformly excellent, with Biggs and Lawson holding down the comedic center while Campbell adds a touch of dramatic depth as Kay's best friend and confidante. The child actors are also perfectly cast, each one bringing a unique personality and set of quirks to their role.

One of the show's strengths is its willingness to tackle serious issues like education, parenting, and social isolation, while still keeping things light and entertaining. The writers are clearly invested in exploring the complexities of raising gifted children, as well as the challenges of being working-class in a world that often values intelligence and wealth over hard work and talent.

At the same time, the show never loses sight of its roots as a silly, feel-good sitcom. There are plenty of laugh-out-loud moments, as Mike and Kay try to keep up with their children's schemes and shenanigans. The show also has a lot of heart, as the family members learn to accept and appreciate each other's differences, and work together to overcome their challenges.

Overall, Outmatched is a refreshing take on the family sitcom genre, with a talented cast, sharp writing, and a willingness to explore complex themes in a lighthearted way. Whether you're a parent of gifted children, or just looking for a fun, heartwarming comedy to watch with your loved ones, this show is definitely worth checking out.

Outmatched is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (10 episodes). The series first aired on January 23, 2020.
