1. A Workplace Comedy About Workers Taking Jobs from Americans....
during a recession failed? Shocking.

I just felt like this show was all about GE's arrogance.

4. No, it was about a culture clash.
Outsourcing was only the means to bring the two together. The show was hardly pro-outsourcing.

8. 30 Rock is more about GE's arrogance.

3. Yeah, I liked it too
Good cast of actors. I didn't care for it at 10:30 but I could work around that.

5. Too many Indians at once, I guess.
It'll be replaced by a generic sitcom set in NYC and featuring an inexplicably all-white cast.

6. Oh no! this show makes me laugh and laugh
I was surprised at how genuinely funny it is. It might be that I get the jokes a little more than a large part of the American audience, though, since I'm an expat who lives around a lot of Indians.

7. It was a pretty good show.
We've been catching up with "on demand" recordings.. Oh well.

9. The show was better than I expected it to be.
I had a bad opinion of it before it started - the premise seemed stupid, given the state of unemployment in America. But it really wasn't about that, and although I didn't find the show to be LOL funny, I did enjoy the view into Indian life and culture.
