Outsourced





menino
Outsourced is a new comedy serial, and I saw the first 3 episodes and found it hilarious.
Maybe because I'm Indian, and identify with some of the characters as some of my friends characteristics and Indian culture, but I still find it funny.

I think anyone who has Indian friends may find this funny.
But even the jokes are hillarious.

I just found out that there is a bollywood movie called Outsourced, and I think there should be englih subtitles for those who do not understand hindi as yet.
Its probably spun off the comedy serial, but I have yet to see the movie.

I have not watched "Outsourced" yet. I think given the economy, there is nothing funny about our jobs being outsourced. I hope NBC losses more ratings for the poor timing of airing that show. I might tape the show so I can speed through to see what advertisers are there so I can avoid their products.

Show might be funny if unemployment was not so high and economy better.

Didn't know about this TV series. If its a comedy TV series then I will check this.

I watched it and really felt that Parks and Rec was better and I'm glad that Parks and Rec will be back for the second part of the season.

Really, I just didn't get into the show enough. Still love Community, The Office, 30 Rock though! NBC comedy Thursdays are great

I'm sorry standready, if you are offended by the serial, and its basis.
I do hope the economy gets better soon, and I also hope that you are employed, and not cast out, because of outsourcing jobs.

I guess I like it, because it shows about Indian culture in a funny light.

I saw parks and recreation, and didn't find it that funny, but I guess, each person finds their own tv programs funny.
BUT I think everyone loved or at least liked F.R.I.E.N.D.S Laughing

wow, i'd never though i would see it in that light... i thought someone from india would be outraged from the show and stuff... i mean they have some pretty hard jokes on indians.

well i love the show it's like the office, but its funny ("sorry office fans Razz") and in india... i find it the lightweight 20 minutes comedy i was needing since scrubs got pulled...

Scrubs got pulled?????
I liked the show, but anyways, not as much as I like outsourced.

I find each and every episode really funny, and I guess its because the characters blend quite well, and you get to know them quite fast, and also that a lot of them play the ignorant part to US's modern customs, culture and slangs.
