Master of None: Season 1 (2015)



Critic 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

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

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.

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.

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 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…

Master of None wants to have a conversation about diversity, but it also wants to model what the future of TV can look like.

Jun 26, 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.

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.
