I love this show!
23 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I haven't watched a sitcom since 'Samantha Who' was canceled. This show is hilarious. I love seeing more and more minorities on TV. Yes, Indians do seem to be the new 'comic relief'. I hope they benefit from their newfound popularity and not be taken as a stereotype. Please keep this show on the air NBC! Yeah, 'more colorful'.

"Detroit, home of motor vehicles and black people." LOL I really hope they filmed some of these scenes in India, though I doubt it. But it would be nice if their country benefit from the filming. Oh, and what is up with the 'quiet girl?!'

America shipping jobs overseas really is an issue here that needs to be dealt with, but it's nice to see this political problem being dealt with in a comedic way.
