Outsourced: Season 1 (2010-2011)



Critic Consensus: This culture-clash sitcom is too mired in unfunny jokes and stereotypical characters to provide much insight into the global marketplace.

Tv Season Info

An American manager at a novelties company heads up a call center that's been relocated to India in this comedy series. In the show's only season, first-time manager Todd Dempsy (Ben Rappaport) takes steps to adapt to his new home and workplace, while his employees learn about American culture through the products they're selling. Situations include a sexual-harassment complaint due to a shipment of risqué novelties; interactions between Todd and Asha (Rebecca Hazlewood), an employee facing an arranged marriage; and Todd's decision to keep the office open during an important Indian holiday.

Critic Reviews for Outsourced: Season 1

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (8)

Not offensive. Just not particularly fresh or compelling.

October 1, 2010 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Though American tastes are mocked here, too, laughing at your own group doesn't necessarily excuse laughing at others.

It's just a little novelty.

There is social commentary embedded in the clunky dialogue, but it is conveyed so shakily, its effect is entirely lost.

September 23, 2010 | Rating: 1/10 | Full Review…

The culture-clash premise drowns in a sewer of offensive caricatures and lame jokes.

October 1, 2010 | Full Review…

The problem is that neither plot has a sound foundation.
