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.
October 19, 2018
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.
July 16, 2018
Master of None speaks honestly, directly, bluntly, with certain dyes inevitably bitter but with a sense of humor. [Full Review in Spanish]
June 26, 2018
Master of None wants to have a conversation about diversity, but it also wants to model what the future of TV can look like.
June 25, 2018
Another entry in Netflix's canon of addictive and unique series, the kind that stay with you long after you're done watching.
October 13, 2017
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.
September 21, 2017
Master of None isn't heavy-handed, but [Aziz] Ansari and co-creator Alan Yang want its characters and its viewers to become better humans. To accomplish this, everyone simply has to pay attention.

MASTER OF NONE is the type of series I have been waiting to happen...
June 2, 2017
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.
January 18, 2017
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.
January 3, 2017
Definitely worth a look.
September 27, 2016
Master of None is brilliant, insightful, and hilarious, the perfect vehicle for Ansari to animate the ideas and sociological concepts that he wasn't quite able to make jump off the page earlier this year.
September 26, 2016
You would have to be a single- celled amoeba to find nothing to relate to in this sharp, funny look at modern romance, millennial indecisiveness, the inter-generational disconnect as well as race and gender.
November 18, 2015
Master of None is a great vehicle for Ansari, who is a much more thoughtful and gentle spirit than his early career suggested.
November 13, 2015
"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.

November 13, 2015
Master of None, one of the most assured shows in recent memory, knows exactly what it's doing.
November 11, 2015
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.

November 11, 2015
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.

As you would expect, very (very) funny.

Ansari's is a smart and engaging presence and his perspective on things lends itself very well to this type of single-camera comedy. And his supporting cast, particularly Wells, is on point.
