Master of None: Master of Netflix

By ARIANNA SCAVONE

As the show’s tagline says, “This is Dev. He has a lot of questions.”

Aziz Ansari and Alan Yang’s new Netflix series, “Master of None” was the hit series of this past fall season. “The New York Times” called it, “the year’s best comedy straight out of the gate,” and the JerEcho is giving it five stars.

Parks and Recreation’s” Aziz Ansari and Alan Yang, co-creators and writers of “Master of None”, reveal the not-so-glamorous reality of living in New York City in your late 20s. Although Ansari’s character Dev and his friends are more affluent than the average NYC denizens, their actions and behaviors reveal the typical and humorous predicaments of contemporary young adults. Senior Chloe C. said, “It combines humor and real-life drama. I highly suggest it to any of my Netflix-watching friends, and I can’t wait for the next season to come out.” Fans appreciate the progressive thought processes and conflicts that occur throughout the episodes, since each is titled after a different concern, for example, “Parents” or “The Other Man.”

“Master of None” is unique and refreshingly candid. From racism to feminism, the creators acknowledge the controversial nuances in society and then depict amusing situations that viewers can relate to. It’s inspiring to see a young comedian such as Ansari stand up for important social issues.

“Master of None” highlights the awkward struggle it is to become an adult in the big city, mocks millennial self-absorbed tendencies, and raises awareness of today’s types of discrimination in five short hours of TV. At the very least, Ansari and Yang have accomplished saying what many are thinking. Well done, boys.

Senior Grace Z. appreciates how Aziz Ansari “represents the minority and has such a sensitive representation of interaction.”

Best Lines of the Show:

“There should be an app that analyzes your tum and tells you what you want to eat.” 

“I’m not your tech guy.”

“You know, Ben Kingsley did an accent in Gandhi and he won the Oscar for it, so…” “But he didn’t win the Oscar just for doing the accent, I mean, it wasn’t an Oscar for ‘Best Indian Accent.’”

“I missed your mess.”
