Goofs

Aziz Ansari's character's name is Dev Shah and yet he is shown speaking Tamil in the childhood shots. It is not entirely out of the realm of the possible for a 'Shah' to live in Tamil Nadu but it is a stretch that they would talk Tamil at home and address their grandfather as 'Thatha'. People with the surname Shah are usually from Gujarat and speak Gujarati. See more »

Quotes

Dev: You see The Social Network? Max Minghella plays an Indian guy. He's white. They browned him up.
Ravi: No no, I read he's one-sixteenth Indian.
Dev: Who cares? If you go back far enough we're all one-sixteenth something. I'm probably one-sixteenth black. You think they're gonna let me play Blade?

Mastering nothing, and trying to understand it all.
6 November 2015 | by valleyofriversSee all my reviews

I was happy to see Aziz Ansari's new comedy series Master of None was recently released on Netflix. Being a fan of jamming as much of a new show into my life as I can, I immediately tore into the ten episode season. After trying to feel the show out in the first episode, I easily slipped into the next few, catching myself laughing while also being engaged with the show's unique perspectives.

I've been a fan of Aziz for a long time, especially his stand-up and Parks and Recreation. Utilizing his stand-up platform, Aziz has been cultivating and relaying his thoughts and observations of life from the vantage point of the son of Indian immigrants who chose to raise a family in the southern United States. That's not his only vantage point however, as he also sees himself rightfully as any other young American, submersed in today's culture. Something he doesn't take for granted, utilizing it instead of shying away from it, with the results often being amazing, heartfelt comedy. All of which has an incredibly genuine feeling to it, as if Aziz never fully gave up ties to his childhood, instead continuing to let that side of him flourish.

A pop-culture glutton, Aziz often quips about how easily a text message can change the course of your day, how dating and relationships make absolutely no sense, and how we should treat each other better. Master of None is the evolution of these observations, originally perfected on stage, and now presented to us applied to real life situations. The best part about this evolution is the fact that he's not afraid to criticize them, and the show highlights this by offering up multiple view points from a diverse set of characters, often his friends.

Master of None hints at something great, at times still unsure of itself in the best way possible. Continuing to shift perspectives until a universal truth is uncovered connecting us all to the insanity that is our lives in our modern age. Technology, dating, racism, sexuality, consumerism, parenting, and marriage are all examined in less than four episodes, although no real conclusions are made. The show not focusing on lessons, but rather understanding and perspective.

If you're a fan of Louie, I have absolutely no doubt that you'll be interested to give Master of None a real shot. There's something here for almost everyone, if you don't think so, you may be just another voice this project is trying to showcase, all of us.

Personally, the only thing I thought the show was missing was Kanye West.
