i have never laughed so much on any show's first episode, this truly made my day when i watched it. Unlike the other comedy shows out there, this show brings simplicity, diversity, experience, and combing all that makes this show watchable, absolutely brilliant. Can't wait for the other episodes to come. Love it, funny all the way.

Very disappointed NBC decided this show wasn't worthy of a second season. Guess not too many Americans were interested in expanding their cultural horizons,... at least the horizon the Outsourced writers were prepared to share, and thus this show wasn't the commercial "success" sponsors were willing to pay for.

I never missed an episode - this is hilarious. When telling my friends about it, I found all their teenagers are hooked on this show as well. And so far this seems to appeal to a broad range of tastes.

Outsourced is a comedy from NBC about a manager for a novelty catalog company transferring to India to run a call center of misfits. It deals mainly with how he is going to cope with the culture shock that he is experiencing and dealing with his employees in teaching them about America so that they can be better salesman. I see a romantic relationship that will probably develop in later episodes. Watching it on Amazon is so much better than on TV or even Hulu because there are no commercials, the cost is nominal, and the quality is excellent. Hope this show survives at least a full season because I really enjoyed it.

Outsourced is a hidden treasure. I can say, in all honesty, that my spouse and I laughed many times during every single episode. Honestly, is there any better recommendation than to say that you will have guaranteed laughs every time?

I think the reason this show didn't last was because people weren't sure if it was making fun of Indians or was being racist. It isn't. The shows successfully exploits the fact that most Americans, rich or poor, educated or ignorant, really don't actually know that much about India. The show's main character, Todd, portrays this ignorance well. Even when he is trying to be extra culturally sensitive, he sometimes sticks his foot in his mouth (naturally, to humorous consequence). I think most of us can find at least a little bit of ourselves in Todd.

The show's exploration of the cultural divide between America and India is honest, understated, and, I felt, tasteful. Such a backdrop sets the show apart from your more typical sitcom, while still offering enough story and romance to keep people interested. I heartily recommend Outsourced for Americans, Indians, and everyone else.
