Developed but Subtle Story with Great Comedic Moments
19 October 2017 | by thenzaSee all my reviews

Aziz Ansari has amazing comedic timing which for me is what really makes this show great along with the dry and awkward dialogue. The character development and stories are also entertaining without being forced or trying to attempt to wrap everything in a neat package. He uses common relationships and everyday life experiences to drive his stories which is hard to do but seems to work well for the show. Although not necessarily plot driven or in the vein of a Curb Your Enthusiasm; this show offers situational comedy that isn't entirely make or break per episode which is refreshing.

My only complaints are the actors Eric Wareheim who plays his tall bearded friend with glasses and the woman who plays his mother. I will give the woman that plays his mother a pass because it is in fact Ansari's mother even though her acting is expressionless and her timing is probably the worst I've seen but at least I know she isn't actually a trained actress. On the other hand Eric Wareheim is a terrible character and actor on the show, relentlessly dumb and unentertaining, his acting is just plain awful, at this point I wonder why they didn't just go with Brian Posehn if they just wanted someone big and ogre- ish. His performances are stale and for me he is just annoying to look at, but that's just me.

Some of the episodes such as the first two are slow going but the cinematography was quite good so I stuck with it, and one or two other episodes didn't really go anywhere but what really makes this show good is Ansari's genuine-ness and a great supporting cast that keeps changing, I was very impressed with Claire Danes acting on the episode The Other Man. I am excited to see what Season 2 and forward will have in store and if the show's freshness will be able to remain or time.
