    “Master Of None, which debuts November 6, follows the personal and professional life of Dev (Ansari), a 30-year-old actor in New York who has trouble deciding what he wants to eat, much less the pathway for the rest of his life. Dev’s story takes him through subjects as diverse as the plight of the elderly, the immigrant experience, and how to find the most delicious pasta for dinner.”

    Metacritic: 91 with 12 reviews.

    The reviews have been overwhelmingly positive, much better than I anticipated. I don’t love Aziz. At the very least, I like him. But I’ve heard so many good things from people who share that same philosophy, so I’m in.

    Exactly. Tom was one of my least favorite characters in Parks and Recreation, and I always find Aziz annoying in some moments. But this series looks awesome.

    1st episode was on POINT. So funny. I love the ‘live-in’ feeling this show brings. Super sharp writing going on, too. Love love love.

    The second episode: “Parents” might be my favorite episode of the year of any genre!  So intelligently written, directed, acted. It handled the subject with intelligence and insight not seen on most comedies. Aziz’s dad is hilarious!

    I’m moving Eric Wareheim into my choices for Supporting Actor in a Comedy.

    Also expecting Aziz Ansari to possibly win Lead Actor in a Comedy Series at this year’s Globes

    I streamed the entire series this weekend and the whole thing was fantastic.  It’s really tough to pick a favorite episode – I am going with “Nashville”, which nailed the laid-back 70’s Woody Allen ease of an early relationship and featured fantastic performances by Ansari and Noel Wells.  Other standouts were “Parents”, “Indians on TV”, “Old People”, and “Mornings”.

    A standout comedy series this year, though I wouldn’t expect it to gain too much awards traction outside of Ansari (it just feels too small / poignant), but I would be extremely happy for it to sneak in.  If there’s justice, the Emmys and other awards bodies will start paying more attention to these “smaller” comedy series this year that are just fantastic (You’re the Worst, Casual, Difficult People).

    Wow, what an amazing show. Only halfway through episode three and the series is already as confident and funny as any other show in its fourth season. The writing is sharp, hilarious, and surprisingly mature. The episodes don’t have your usual “Oh no, I have two dates to prom” sitcom plots, but actually cover some pretty important and sometimes poignant issues. It reminds me of a less depressing “Louie” for younger people. 

    I moved the series into my Golden Globes predictions as soon as the reviews came in, but now I’m considering Ansari for lead actor. It totally deserves any and all awards it’s nominated for.

    Really great show and writing but I can’t get past how bad the acting is — many of the lines are read in a really stagey and fake way, and some of the actors are just downright horrendous, to the point that I find it to be a real distraction (this was made even more obvious when Claire Danes showed up and absolutely killed her role).

    Well, it has more overwhelmingly positive reviews than those other “smaller comedies.”

    I’m undecided if Ansarai’s past is a plus or not. Emmy voters obviously knew Parks and Rec existed, but they seemed to think it only had one actor.

    2nd and 3rd episodes continue the winning streak of the premiere. Literally obsessed with this show.

    I love the casual, yet nuanced feel of the show. It’s very warm and inviting. Captures modern 20s/30s life perfectly, so on point. Aziz Ansari has a winner with this show. I hope it gets some Globes, and then Emmy, attention.

    Also, LOVE the diverse cast. The main cast consists of a lead actor of Indian heritage, with his best friends being an Asian man, a Jewish man, and a black lesbian. YES!

    Lead Actor, Comedy contender, for sure.

    I’ve finished the first three episodes. It’s good. The writing is very good, although these episodes have all been from Ansari and Yang, so that’s not shocking. The directing is my favorite part (James Ponsoldt is awesome). I agree with what was said above about the acting – some people are great or, at the very least, just fine…others are not good at all. It’s very strange. It occassionally takes me out of the show. But I’ll keep watching because I do like what I’ve seen so far.
