Goofs

Mumbai is hours ahead of the central United States. In order to operate a call center that takes orders from the US during US business hours, the call center would need to be operating from about 6pm Mumbai time until 7am Mumbai time. In this show it is clear that Mid-American Novelty Call Center in operating during normal daylight hours. The movie that this series is based on actually shows the call center operating during the overnight hours. See more »

Humor like weight is based on relativity

Outsourced is Hilarious!

Granted that one who has more insight on Indian culture would find it funnier than someone who is still coming to terms with real-life outsourcing, any viewer with an open mind would easily find an easy laugh out of this story.

The protagonists have not yet been fully developed but with each new episode, more comedic talent is displayed and each so far has been better than the last. This show has the building blocks of a solid comedy, interesting and funny characters, fresh ideas, and a different setting from our typical abstract-humor based comedies like Frasier.

The biggest gripe that non-fans have with this show is that it seems insensitive to those who may have lost their jobs to actual outsourcing. Perhaps if the show went a different way, where a bunch of Indians came to open a gag-prop business in America, they would feel less insulted.

Regardless of ones taste for comedy, the show has its own merits and gives promise of great potential but hey,

IT CANT BE ANY WORSE THAN ***"THE CLEVELAND SHOW"***
