Welcome to India: a diverse country of exotic cuisine, fascinating cultures, unique social customs...and the home of the Mid America Novelties call center. Unsuspecting management trainee Todd Dempsy is shocked when his job and department are relocated to the chaotic city of Mumbai. With no other career options, the Kansas native makes the jump himself and discovers that his most important work might just be teaching his eclectic group of Indian customer service reps what being American is all about. Developed by writer Robert Borden (The Drew Carey Show) and director Ken Kwapis (The Office), it’s 22 episodes of fun and hilarity where laughter is never lost in translation.

Actually I found the humor quite tame. Sure it's full of stereotypes, but who isn't. I know I am. I'm so full of stereotypes that I can't find clothes big enough to fit me. I had two stereotypes just last week and three the week before that. Every summer for the last sixteen years I've gone to sit with 'The Sony Super Stereotype Society Circle', in Stockholm, Sweden. It's always full of tall blonde gorgeous girls, and men with funny accents. Don't hide your stereotypes. Embrace them. Set them free. Let them run wild like a sea horse across the Serengeti... Okay, I think I overstretched myself a bit there.
This DVD Is worth buying. If only to shut me up!
Originally I was looking for a documentary that I caught a glimpse of on tv. A man had to downsize and his job was outsourced and he complained about how he had to give up a house and move into an apartment. He decided to go to India to see how this outsourcing was working. He found that his replacement made a fraction of the money he made and oversaw more people and lived in a one room apartment with something like 7 people and took the bus in scorching heat to work. While searching for this documentary I found the movie called "outsourced", a very amusing film. However the tv show, now on DVD is way funnier.
I did at one point spray a mouthful of tea all over my living room carpet.
I did not research this but i have seen some of the actors in some Canadian made films.
o have mo bad feelings that the show ended after so few seasons. It is a very complete story on DVD, funny and uplifting. I was surprised by the positive behavior of some people who were being spun as negative as is done in American movies - good guys vs bad guys- but such is the nature of places like south Asia. Also cultural characteristics and attitudes have been presented quite well. There is not a single dull moment in this show. But I do believe that the viewer must know something of this region's culture or if u have friends from that region, your appreciation of the show will be better.
I hope this review is helpful.
Many more truths are portrayed subtly and cleverly. The clash between Indian and American cultures is reduced, although in a very small scale, with the publication of this series. The misconceptions each country has about the other is a constant source of amusement and is amply displayed in this entertaining series. If you've ever had a yearning to be anywhere near India and learn a little about a culture that is one of the fastest growing in the world, you couldn't do better than getting this little slice of south asian spice. Shuk'ria! (Thank you!)
I just wished that NetFlix or another network would have picked this up and continued with it especially since so many people clearly enjoyed it.
