Outsourced 1 Season 2011

Season 1
4.9 out of 5 stars (35) IMDb 7.5/10

After completing the Mid America Novelties' manager training program, Todd Dempsy (Ben Rappaport) learns that the call center is being outsourced to India, and he is asked to move there to be the manager. Having never ventured out of the country, he is unprepared for the culture shock. Overwhelmed, Todd discovers that his new staff needs a crash course in all things American if they are to understand the U.S. product line and ramp up sales from halfway around the world. The B-team Todd inherits includes Gupta (Parvesh Cheena), Manmeet (Sacha Dhawan), Asha (Rebecca Hazlewood), Rajiv (Rizwan Manji) and Madhuri (Anisha Nagarajan). Todd also discovers other transplants working in his office building, including an American expatriate, Charlie Davies (Diedrich Bader) and Tonya (Pippa Black), a beautiful Australian.

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 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.

... it's a shame no one else thought so - it was cancelled after one season.

Based on the movie by the same name (which I also give 5 stars), it's a complete departure from the movie.

I'd categorize the movie as a romantic comedy/drama, but the series is definitely a sitcom.

Maybe it speaks directly only to those that have been in India (I have spend months there), but I see the humor, and it's good!

So sad this show only lasted the one season. We thought it was a pretty good ensemble cast, and were happy to find the whole first season online. Even though this onlne streaming purchase is listed as "HD", only a few episodes actually displayed in HD while streaming through our 2nd-generation Roku box. We have a high-speed ISP, and an "excellent" wireless connection between our router and the Roku box. We'd be hesitant to purchase another HD streaming product if there's a premium add-on cost.

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.

I thought this was one of the wittiest and enjoyed shows to come along in a while. I was disappointed to learn that it was being cancelled. I really enjoyed it. I laughed at something in every show. I especially enjoy the guy who plays the manager. The things he says and his facial expressions are hilarious to me.

One of the funniest sitcoms I've ever seen. A spin off from the film of the same name "Outsourced". NBC network really got it wrong when they cancelled this series after just 1 season. Idiots! At least you can still watch every episode on the NBC app. Love every one of them. 5 stars!

The show is very very funny. I brought the DVD and now I just brought HD version on AIV since it's on sell.
I'm Asian but not Indian. Since I came from another culture and I can understand the culture difference and how fun that conflict could be in the show like this.
The show focus on Todd an american guy who goes to India and managed the call center. Throughout the time he got to know everyone and how he managed them and how the products they sold,topics like american holiday and Indian holidays, pop american culture and Indian culture, tradition, away from home, etc. It's presented in a funny way but reflect real life experiences.
And the reason I like the show is that how Indian people can be in such a show with contents that using their heritage and culture as a laughing material and not offended by it. I know it's American production. My culture is too serious about itself and would never make a show similar like this, especially by American's.
Anyhow, the show is really funny and worthy to spend money and time on. Too bad they didn't make a second season.
