Outsourced 1 Season 2011

Season 1
4.9 out of 5 stars (33) 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
