Plot: Mr. Burns outsources all the jobs in the nuclear plant to Bangalore, India. Homer survives the layoff but has to move to India. I won't say that the portrayal of India is right on the money but it's definitely one of the funniest I have ever seen on American television. The episode also contains one of the best illustrated arguments for outsourcing set in Mo's Tavern.
Add in :
- A healthy dose of Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom
- A smidgen of Apocalypse Now
- A catchy Indian song from the 1970 Hindi movie Johnny Mera Naam (Lyrics in English and Hindi)
- The whole cast dancing (Go Smithers !)
PS: For all of you who want to watch this episode on the web in its entirety, here's an encrypted word to the wise: There is constant motion in the world. In fact, I will go so far as to call it "daily motion". Enjoy !
