Decide for yourself.

Outsourcing sucks but Outsourced is great! This show doesn't overdo the sex. It also highlightes the idiocy of stereotyping.
age 16+
This a guilty pleasure to watch before bed mostly for adults and teenagers. I rate it 4 stars with the age viewing as 16 and over since there are mild sex and bedroom scenes on the show. I see a lot of teenagers watching and laughing at the jokes more compared to tweens. Yet, I'm sure the younger viewers would love the funny products that the outsource company sells in India and the actors are great entertainers! Highly recommended to viewers who would like to see a different view of the workforce and culture in India. I think it's great that American tv is beginning to change a little. We need more culture clash tv shows.

This title has:

Too much sex
Great messages
Great role models
