Aziz Ansari's Master of None... might be the best New York comedy of them all. It's almost certainly the smartest; what's surprising isn't how funny it is but how often the show is willing to put humor aside to be poignant.
There's an age at which being professionally and personally adrift pivots from cute to tragic and Dev is on the cusp. Then, perhaps that is deliberate too - adding poignancy to a comedy that blends sarcasm and sincerity in just the right quantities.
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.
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.
Master evolves episodically into a masterful meditation on life, love, friendship and family. Bittersweet and bawdy, it's like a loosey-goosey Louie before the exhaustion of responsibility for anyone else has set in.
Master of None... frequently takes its time building to endings that sometimes feel unfinished. But since that's the way things often work out in life, the series is consistently real, as well as consistently funny.
It's an adorable but mature rom-com. It's an idea-packed bulletin on technology and social mores. It's a showbiz satire. It's a casually multicultural, multiracial comedy that's also acutely conscious of how identity still matters.
