Critic Consensus: Exceptionally executed with charm, humor, and heart, Master of None is a refreshingly offbeat take on a familiar premise.

Master of None is a great vehicle for Ansari, who is a much more thoughtful and gentle spirit than his early career suggested.
"Master Of None" brings largely unaddressed issues of sex and race into a mainstream comedy with smarts to spare. It's hugely entertaining, but also cinematic, novelistic, and adventurous.
Master of None, one of the most assured shows in recent memory, knows exactly what it's doing.
A deeply specific, highly diverse portrait of thirtysomething life in New York City, with a talkiness that recalls early Woody Allen and a sentimental streak that may be the show's greatest asset.
The opening episode is a confident and polished piece of work-both the culmination of Ansari's rise to the top of the stand-up world and a well-deserved spotlight for an actor who has long been relegated to supporting roles.
Audience Reviews for Master of None: Season 1
Aziz Ansari is a hilarious and highly intelligent man in comedy who?s been working his way up for a long time. Through comedy films and stand-up tours, Ansari has established himself an iconic character of the comedic community, and he even wrote a book last year on the current state of social and romantic connection called Modern Romance. (It?s really good, especially if you like relevant and satirical books.) It then comes at no surprise that his Netflix series, Master of None, is nonstop hilarity and social commentary. It?s quick-witted, doesn?t shy away from real issues, and entertainingly depicts how awful but meaningful life can be.
