    Posted: Oct/21/2010 at 1:09pm
I have been watching the show called Outsourced on Thursday evenings. I think that it is a really funny show. It seems like a good storyline for a show that has a lot of potential.So I was wondering if any of you guys watch this? If you do watch please tell me what you think of it.

It is a very funny show. similar to Community and does have a lot of potential. Lets just hope the network doesnt drop it like how Fox does with good shows for no reason.

I hate that when they drop really good shows. Fox has a big reputation for doing that.

Outsourced is one of the worst shows on television. Right up there with Nikita.

I've only seen one episode but it was about a call center in india and a white guy that manages it.  I didn't find it funny at all.  Confused

i watched last nights episode and it was mildly amusing, but that is about it. i am still not so sure how appropiate it is to try and make the outsourcing of American jobs humorous.

I haven't watched it but I like Community and I heard reviews that Outsourced wasn't that great but it's going to stay whereas Community has more raves but it might get canceled.
Sessions sucks hairy monkey balls, the end.

The movie that the series is based on was OK.  IMHO, I didn't think it was that great to deserve a TV spin-off.  I couldn't make it through the first 10 mins of the show.  I'm going to have to agree with gifted on Nikita.  I made it through 30 mins of that show before I turned off the tube.

Yep, Outsourced is not very funny at all. Now, I'm of Indian origin and I'm not one of those people that get easily offended plus I find stuff like this funny, like Russell Peters stand up (If you haven't seen it, just check a few clips out, he's hilarious- http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=russell+peters+indian&aq=f

But Outsourced insinuates on every aspect of India just a little to much to the point where its not funny at all. 

Really, they need to change something or it will be gone soon.

Reality TV is a big reason why I dropped cable altogether. Can't stand that crap.

I took community off my dvr last season. I added outsourced to give it a try and so far I find it amusing. I'm not sure if it will keep it's spot in my dvr for the long haul or not, time will tell.

I was never a fan of reality TV either.  I remember when MTV used to play music videos and I would change the channel whenever Real World was on and now MTV plays nothing but reality TV.  Reality blows.
