November 6, 2015
Master of None is very much in the style of Louis, except it is funnier. Really. It's far less about drama and more about comedy.
November 6, 2015
It is the rarest gem of all: a finely calibrated, amazingly subtle, and totally unique piece of television that everyone can enjoy.
November 6, 2015
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.

Aziz Ansari's Netflix series reflects millennial life... and it delivers a bunch of smiley emojis.
November 6, 2015
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.
November 6, 2015
The 10-episode Season 1 is a marvel of edge, charm and storytelling.

November 6, 2015
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.
November 6, 2015
Master of None belongs in the teeming pile of great TV worth the time, and hopefully marks the beginning of a new and excitingly improved chapter in Ansari's career.
November 5, 2015
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.
November 5, 2015
There are sitcom and rom-com tropes, to be sure, but more often than not the series plays with your expectations in order to subvert them.
November 5, 2015
Master of None is about grappling with a specific kind of privilege, and figuring out how to live with it; in that sense, it is the definitive millennial comedy.
November 5, 2015
Master of None proves that you can have fun even when life feels a little unfair, and Ansari plays that up with great reward.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
November 5, 2015
Master of None provokes a steady stream of hearty laughter with its knowing take on contemporary American life and relationships.
November 5, 2015
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.
November 5, 2015
The series also happens to be sexy, hilarious, and very moving, a tribute to Ansari's observational powers and ability to pinpoint the zeitgeist. Consider Master of None to be Netflix's early Christmas gift to subscribers.
November 5, 2015
The things that make Netflix's Master of None very good are the same things that make people flock to see Aziz Ansari on stage. It's funny. It's relatable. It rings true in every moment
November 5, 2015
Master of None is a warmer, sweeter show than Louie often is, and it's less cynical than a raft of other comedies on TV and elsewhere.
November 5, 2015
It's innovative, shockingly clever, sophisticated, sexy, and beautifully executed. In other words, it's the opposite of virtually every sitcom in prime time.
November 5, 2015
I'm all for it... I was having such a lovely time watching Dev and Rachel and their friends just hang around and enjoy life. We could all use a show that just wants to chill.
November 5, 2015
The result is an incredibly sweet and hopeful show about living, dating and growing up that balances the pathos of modern life with all the hilarity one encounters along the way.
