Man, why'd you drag me to a work party?
'Cause you're my buddy. You're my friend. I want you to meet my coworkers.
Oh, that's nice.
Yeah, plus there's this girl here I'm trying to get with and if I showed up by myself, that'd seem kind of lame.
Uh-huh, I get that.
And I asked a bunch of other people to come, they said no.

Master of None is the story of 30-something Dev, played by Aziz. It's a bit like 'Louie' for a generation that is not yet convinced that the world is a shitty and sad place. A generation that is being told it can do an be anything but has no idea what or who that is. It's a show that tries to leave out most of the usual banalities and predictable entanglements but to tell stories that feel real, unscripted almost.
To tell stories of relationships that fail or never even got a chance to do so. It's a show that tackles some of the big issues of the American society without taking itself to seriously, without pointing fingers.
If John Oliver would make a TV Series it would probably look like Master of None. It makes you think without being demanding and it makes you laugh without trying to hard to be hilarious.
It's definitely my favorite comedy show right now. It hits the right tone. It's not as shrill as Netflix's Kimmy Schmidt and not as predictable as most of the other comedy shows.
Good job, Netflix. Good job, Aziz. Looking forward to SE2.
