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 »

For culturally aware audiences this is a FANTASTIC show (speciallly if you have Indian friends or have been to India)
26 August 2013 | by amyraisbeckSee all my reviews

Im sad that they canceled this show but I can understand how most people wouldn't really get the humor.

I spent time in Europe in a masters with a VERY international crowd (more than 40 nationalities), including about 25 Indians....after this I visited India ....I also lived about 7 years in the USA, so I think if this hadn't been my experience I might not get the the jokes in this series (making fun of Americans and Indians).

So, for someone like myself this show is freakin' hilarious, and its not really insulting to the cultures...its more like a social commentary on cultures and traditions.....it makes fun of Americans the way Americans (who have traveled outside the USA) do, and it makes fun of Indians in the same way Indians do.... so its not really insensitive, just playing on the stereotypes. But we all know, stereotypes exist for a reason!

Bring it back!
