We have a teaser and a premiere date! May 12th – so definitely won’t miss the cut off. I wonder why they waited so long to announce this since it’s before Kimmy…March 15, 2017 at 1:08 pm #1202037809
I was anticipating May 26; I feel a lot better about its nomination chances now. Maybe Bloodline gets that slot. Still going to predict writing and directing snubs though, which means that I have it for a grand total of two nominations (comedy series and lead actor) including the technical categories, which is absurd, but it is almost inevitable when you have seven series nominees. Actually, it pretty much happened to black-ish last year (series, both leads). I hope that I am wrong of course; the first season should have won series in addition to writing and it should have been nominated for supporting actress and editing.March 15, 2017 at 1:17 pm #1202037813
Well, it will definitely be competing with Atlanta for the non-Veep and Silicon valley spots but it had good strategy last year as I recall by only submitting one episode in each.March 15, 2017 at 3:36 pm #1202037882
I wasn’t in the minority as I hated season one. But maybe I was just in a bad mood. I’ll give it another try.March 24, 2017 at 10:17 pm #1202045696
So I hated season one but everybody else loved it. So I just rewatched Parents and I don’t know what I was thinking. That episode was hillarious. I’m so glad it won writing. I am not a fan, however, of Kelvin Yu. He was not very good. I hope Shoukath Ansari comes back though because he should have won the Emmy.May 3, 2017 at 8:18 am #1202083380
“Master of None” is more confident in its second season, focusing its cinematic influences and inventive narrative structuring into a moving personal story.
Grade A Review from IndieWire – seems like a good start.
I’ve seen two others, an A from EW and a B+ from AVClub. AVC found it overall impressive but wasn’t interested in the romance sub-plot that apparently exists this season. Personally I loved the romance in the first season so it doesn’t bother me at all. This is definitely one of my favorite comedies and I can’t wait for it to come back. It managed to surprise with writing and directing nods and that huge writing win over Veep – do we think it can repeat?May 3, 2017 at 11:42 pm #1202083933
Aziz Ansari: “I don’t know if we’re going to do a season three. I wouldn’t be surprised if I needed a looonng break before I could come back to it. I’ve got to become a different guy before I write a third season, is my personal thought. I’ve got to get married or have a kid or something. I don’t have anything else to say about being a young guy being single in New York eating food around town all the time.”May 4, 2017 at 2:36 am #1202084035

Shoukkath Ansari was my favorite Guest comedy performance last year, only rivaled by Melora Hardin in Transparent. He needs to get nominated.May 4, 2017 at 11:42 am #1202084346
91 on metacritic with six reviews. 91 is where it eventually settled last year so let’s see if it can hold.
It definitely seems from advance buzz that this season is a little more formally inventive than the first which is producing a bit more of a polarizing response but thus far those who responded favorably to it are pulling up the score.May 9, 2017 at 10:34 pm #1202088731
In Sepinwall’s podcast, they talked about how Aziz Ansari is a far better actor this season. They also stopped to talk about how good Bobby Cannavale is and made it sound like a hefty role that could get bumped to supporting. The penultimate episode is a double episode.May 12, 2017 at 4:50 am #1202090717
So I was not a fan of season 1. And then I rewatched Parents and I was like “wait, what the fuck is wrong with me? Why did I not like this?”. And then I realized it must have been because I was in a bad mood or something.
So, I expected a good season 2 but I didn’t expect it to be this good. This episode had my emotions going everywhere. And I actually laughed several times. I don’t want Dev to go back to America, the show is so much better in Italy. Oh well.
I’m torn because I was convinced that Atlanta would replace Transparent and Catastrophe would replace this, but if the season is this good, maybe not. What worries me though is that the season could be the best thing ever and that wouldn’t matter if the show has support, and I don’t think it does. It’s so weird that the guilds just ignored it after it did so well at the Emmys. Maybe the issue was just timing? Maybe this airdate will help solidify support. Or is it too late and won’t be watched by voters? Ugh it’s too much. I’m scared that Ansari and maybe Cannavale will be the show’s only nominations.
my grade- A-May 12, 2017 at 5:56 am #1202090745
Le Nozze was funny. Eric Wareheim was hilarious. If the Emmys go for this season could he be a possible guest nominee (If eligible)? I doubt it but he’s funny.
My grade: B+
Religion was so good. I really loved it. I’ve only seen the first three episodes and I already feel like that’ll be the writing submission. It was very good. Also, even though I could see Ansari’s mom thinking about her lines, the parents are so funny. Lets get Shoukath Ansari that guest nomination.
My grade: A
Also I’m watching the fourth episode, and its great seeing Condola Rashad. She’s great on Billions. I forgot she ws on season 1. Tiya Sricar was also in the fourth ep I think. Shes not on IMDB and I havnt seen the credits so maybe its not her and im just racist and mixed her up with another indian actress but im failry sure its her.May 12, 2017 at 8:24 am #1202090863
First Date was funny. I gave it a B+
My fuck-dar is totally going off for Dev and Alessandra Mastronardi’s character.
Cannvale does not appear until until epiusode 5 so as long as he does not appear in two episodes after this than he is good. He is hillarious and essentially playing an over the top comedic version of his Vinyl character but a chef.
Eric Warenheim has been in four out of five episodes.
Tiya Sricar is very good from the two episodes I have seen.
Noe Wells has not showed up so she could appear in guest.
Lena Waithe has only apppeared in 1 episode so far and could qualify guest. She might appear in the fifth as I have not finished it but her presence this seson has been very small so far.
Kelvin Yu has been in 1 episode so far. I think. I havent finiehded the fifth.
