Careful viewing reveals that American customs bear the brunt of most of the gentle humor of this series that should fit seamlessly into NBC's goofballs-at-the-office (or in-the-classroom) Thursday-night sitcom block.
It's mesmerizing in an utter-trainwreck sort of way. There's not one thing about it that works, and yet, there it is, chugging along, with so many people involved in keeping it moving in the hopes that eventually something will spark.
The sitcom is dreadful, and at times, borderline racist. All of that aside, I cannot imagine a world where the premise sustains itself for more than one season.
Though American tastes are mocked here, too, laughing at your own group doesn't necessarily excuse laughing at others.
Outsourced is consistently funny, and I cannot thank the writers of the show enough for this. I find that when I watch comedies that they tend to be hit or miss, but Outsourced, even in the weaker episodes, is still fun to watch.
There's no laugh track here, which is either a blessing or proof that an automated tape can commit suicide.
While crafting a comedy series that makes light of these crippling elements of our economic downturn would be warmly welcomed, it would be nice if that series actually turned out to be funny.
The series has proven its worth as a lighthearted means to common ground through comedy and clever satire, without resorting to one-dimensional and predictable cultural stereotypes.
There is social commentary embedded in the clunky dialogue, but it is conveyed so shakily, its effect is entirely lost.

Jan 02, 2014This is the worst TV series I have watched in recent times depicting the same (mostly inaccurate) Indian stereotypes - also all (or most) of the actors playing Indians were actually born and brought up in the US and as such had to fake the accent, giving it a more artificial 'Appu' like quality. Thank goodness the execs at NBC had good sense to cancel this non-sense of a show. The makers of this show could have taken a cue from "Mumbai Calling" starring Sanjeev Bhaskar, which was similarly themed, but very well made.
