Number 5: Weapon is to kill, disassemble, make dead. Unacceptable.

Another great episode!
22 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

So completely loving everything about this show! Dev and Ravi wrestle through presenting Indian stereotypes int eh roles they audition for. Throw in a racist casting email and you have yet another great episode of Master Of None.

So, the Indian character in Short Circuit was one of my favorite parts of the movie when I saw it in. I had no idea that the actor who plays him isn't Indian at all. He's a white guy doing a stereotype. This episode skillfully explores racism, stereotypes, and their role in entertainment using the level of humor and humanity I'm coming to expect from this series. A short scene with a little boy at Knicks game is a genius moment of "how would it feel to be on the other side of someone else's assumptions?" And in doing so, it expands the ideas behind the show beyond racism to assumptions themselves. I don't know where else to put this, but Gerrard Lobo is unnaturally beautiful. Like a cartoon character of a beautiful human.

Forward the binge!
