Just.... so unfunny.
6 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I couldn't find anything else on at 8:30 on a Thursday, besides Parks and Rec. I'm not even going to publish this review until the episode is over.

This show is bad. It's as if it's written by the people who brought you Hannah Montana or any other completely forgettable Disney Channel or Nickelodeon series. I'm not even sure of the plot line.

The deliveries of punchlines are terrible. The punchlines are bad to begin with, but then they're delivered awkwardly and it just makes a mess of the comedy.

The characters are forced. They're not convincing. They spew line after line of dialogue without any heart or sense of true rapport. I don't know why these people are friends. They are annoying, and more one dimensional than a point, which this show doesn't have. What's the point? Who am I supposed to care for? Why doesn't the studio audience leave mid-performance?

This is a filler show. Destined to be canceled before the end of the season after somehow being green-lit. Kill it. Kill it now. NBC canceled Outsourced for this garbage.

The episode just ended. With a bit of slapstick that was expected and unconvincing.

Bad.
