What do you all think of this show? I know there was an indie film that came out like in 2006 of the same title. But I am kind of thinking it's going to be cancelled. I mean, how long are you gonna do a show about a call center in India??
It looks OK. But I agree it won't last. Hopefully we'll get a few laughs before NBC yanks it. Watching the other previews, the slate of new shows look mediocre at best. This fall begins year one of what I'm calling the "Save The Peacock Project". Hopefully Comcast can do it
Looks like anything of quality and interesting story will be a failure. ABC just presented two superb programs, Flash Forward and Happy Town which were met with massive disinterest by the viewing public who find it difficult to follow anything that requires thought. We've seen the reviews here, "Ah couldn't figger out what is going on. This show sucks and should be canceled." And then they go back to their favorite "Housewives of New Jersey"
I watched this show last night on my VOD and thought it was pretty funny but wondered how many shows could be made about the cultural differences. LOL they only get calls from drunks in the time frame they show! It's amusing but not worth watching in Prime Time IMO.
I took my money out of Sovereign Bank because CS was in India and was not a happy camper with Dell because of that too.
I totally oppose outsourcing since I work for a company who does so and I know the end result is very unfair to employees.
At the same time, I talk to a lot of customers who moan about the outsourcing of our customer service, but they are so cheap they don't want to pay a quarter more to employ an American. So, only customers of any particular business can turn this around by being willing to support products that may cost more, but comes from companies who can get a few of our own citizens out of the employment line.
Now that I'm off the soap box.......................I think this show is hilarious!
Maybe you had to work in a call center to know how true all of this is regardless of what country it takes place in. The accents from India just add to the entertainment because they are so beautiful and can be so much fun at the same time. I'm not sure the show will make it, but I'm sure I'll watch every episode they air.
"Outsourced" has been picked up for another season.
I've been viewing mostly to see Deidrich Bader who is very funny.
At the same time it's disturbing to have a Network show that tries to make the outsourcing of American jobs cute and and endearing. Unemployment in California is 12% and about 9% in the rest of the U.S. That's not a laughing matter!!
