    Anyone watch this new show last night after The Office on NBC? I thought it was alright, hopefully it gets better.

    I tried to watch it because I know it's going to fail and wanted to see what is was like.

    I mean who really wants to watch a tv show about people who steal jobs from American workers? These people have made it very difficult for people to break into the I.T. industry.

    You realize these people are actors right? They didn't actually steal jobs from Americans except maybe from really dark Jewish actors who could play Indians on TV or maybe black actors who can do an accent?

    The show is about a white dude who goes to India. It's based on this movie: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0425326/

    That girl Asha is pretty fine. Didn't know this is a series based on a movie from 4 years ago. Cool to see Oswald again.

    Funny episode of the night goes to the League though.

    I saw the movie earlier this year actually since it was on netflix streaming and the movie was pretty mediocre i didnt know this show was based off of the same book that the movie was

    of course i figured it out 30 seconds into the pilot the first episode was ok but judging from what the movie offered its hard to see this show lasting more than 1 season (at best) unless the story is completely changed


    the aussie girl is new though, was not in the movie and the whole thing where they are in a building with other call centers is new too. the movie had them just working out of a small rundown building in a small town.


    one thing that bugged me about the show (which they had right in the movie) was that it was day time in India was they were taking calls, these call centers primarily operate at night with the time difference


    i'll give it a shot but i dont know how long NBC will

    I agree.

    I did find alot of the interactions to be more on point than the commercials indicated.

    the soft spoken women.

    the b team (pretty much my full team in Coimbatore could be coined that)

    the "manager" in India who is kind, but tries to undermine his american boss

    I watched all 4 NBC shows last night. The Office was very good, I thought this show was right on par with Community and 30 Rock as meh. I'll give it a shot, but honestly, I WANT IT CANCELLED, because Parks and Rec needs to come back ASAP. NBC is r****ded for making it a mid-season replacement.

    Real Estate.

    Yeah, Coimbatore wasn't bad. I prefer Bangalore.

    No longer with them though. I got tired of the travel.

    i've seen all the episodes of Mumbai Calling and maybe that was taken from the same original story as well but Mumbai Calling had an indian guy being transferred to india from London and his supervisor (the white lady) following.

    similar stories but so far Outsourced for the most part is following the same story arc as the movie did. it may combine some comedic elements though from Mumbai Calling since that show was funnier than the movie.


    good news though for the P & R people Mumbai Calling only lasted like 8 episodes so.

    Put me in the bring back Parks n Rec crowd.

    Think the "I'd do two chicks at the sametime" guy from Office Space is being misused.

    The only time I laughed was when Manmeat said Detroit home of autos and blacks.

    I thought the manager was hilariously accurate based on my experience with a lot of manager types I met in India.
