Master of None

Critics Consensus

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

Critic Reviews for Master of None Season 1

All Critics (67) | Top Critics (37)

Aziz Ansari nails modern love, modern families and cultural assimilation in a potent comedy that often camouflages its depth with Ansari's quick wit and snappy patter.

Nov 26, 2019 | Full Review…

It falls squarely into this naturalistic, single-camera category. And it is a vibrant, original pleasure.

Nov 4, 2015 | Full Review…

The 10-episode series, co-created by Ansari and Alan Yang and arriving on Netflix this Friday, is not a cringe comedy but a comedy of manners, fascinated by anthropology and etiquette, by how we behave and how we should behave.

Nov 4, 2015 | Full Review…

Master of None is so confident in its tone and execution that it almost feels like a show in its fourth or fifth year. This may be the most confident first season of a comedy since Veep.

Nov 3, 2015 | Full Review…

At a time when diversity in television is the hot topic in entertainment, how fitting it is for a show like Master of None to pop up and serve as the ideal example of what a unique voice can bring to the table.

Nov 6, 2015 | Rating: A | Full Review…

Quippy, topical but also thoughtful, Master of None is perfectly binge-worthy and thus the ideal Netflix show. If you start watching, be sure to set aside time for all 10 episodes. Go on, treat yourself.

Nov 6, 2015 | Full Review…

It's pleasant and it's informative in a way, and worth watching if only to learn what's going on in the world of the young and mildly disaffected.

Oct 19, 2018 | Full Review…

Master of None speaks honestly, directly, bluntly, with certain dyes inevitably bitter but with a sense of humor. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jul 15, 2018 | Full Review…

Another entry in Netflix's canon of addictive and unique series, the kind that stay with you long after you're done watching.

Jun 25, 2018 | Full Review…

Master of None is terrific, with great comedy ranging from the absurd (Paro!) to the situational, a KILLER soundtrack, and some sharp observations about life and culture.

Oct 13, 2017 | Full Review…

By existing and being as great as it is, the series serves as a brilliant argument in favor of making films and TV shows more diverse, both in terms of the creative minds behind the camera and the actors in front of it.

Jun 2, 2017 | Full Review…

Master of None isn't heavy on punchlines, favoring conversation instead, observational standup writ large. It has some weak spots early on, but it gives us a lot consider by the end.

Audience Reviews for Master of None: Season 1

  • Mar 26, 2021
    Absolutamente una de las mejores series de comedia que he visto, cada capitulo se centra tanto en la historia como en los personajes, y hasta en temas específicos sin dejar de ser abrumadora, y lo mejor, te genera carcajadas en cada episodio, demasiado buena!

    Es buena para pasar el tiempo.

    RATING: A+ Creators: Anzis Ansari and Alen Yang Master of None is original and pretty hilarious. The Show was created by Anzis Ansari and Alen Yang who also serve as the writers of most Episodes and I think they are EP's as well. The Topics that the show approaches are fantastically chosen. The Style and the Direction is nothing but great and I just have to say that Anzis Ansari is absolutely hilarious.

    My absolute favorite show! I wish it would come back though at this point it seems very doubtful. Aziz did something spectacular with this show! So so sad we haven't gotten season 3. Let me just rewatch seasons 1 and 2 for the millionth time. :(
  • Nov 30, 2020
    More like Aziz skits tied into some thin and tedious narrative. Poorly written and dead-air between the punchlines. There is some wit and charm to some of this standup-as-story, but the characters and their gags soon wear thin. Like a few reviewers here I cannot understand how this show ends up with such positive reviews.

    I still don't get why people like it, i tried many times but never clicked, not even close
  • Sep 14, 2020
    Solid show, really enjoyable to watch, even when its not funny.
  • Aug 23, 2020
    Excellent show. Very relatable. It was so easy for me to immerse in the story, and almost feel what the characters were living. I don't know much about cinematography but I consider the aesthetics were outstanding too.
  • Aug 11, 2020
    One of the best shows I've ever seen. A witty, brilliant, hilarious show with vibrant characters and relatable situations. You've heard how ‘Seinfeld' is "the show about nothing"? Well this is "the show about everything". A must watch.

    So much more than just a comedy.
