Wow. That was, well, it was offensive. Not funny, not charming, not tactful at all. Maybe it’ll get better, but the pilot of NBC’s new Thursday comedy was horrible. I hate it already. It was somehow predictable and shocking at the same time. While I appreciate the fun of selling silly American novelty items through Indian call center workers who don’t understand them, the way it’s executed makes the show seem like a glorification tool for the most idiotic aspects of American culture. And the bit about Indian food making you sick was just plain ignorant. The whole ordeal made my head hurt. NBC bumped Parks & Recreation for THIS!?! That network really is run by a bunch of boneheads.
