Master Of NoneKim Linekin
There are sitcoms, and then there are slices of life so achingly observed that you laugh in spite of yourself. Aziz Ansari spins satisfying vignettes from parents, racism, dating – while telling a larger romantic story that begs to be continued.
Dev (Aziz Ansari) is a New York-based actor who is struggling to identify what he really wants, both personally and professionally. Loosely based on Ansari's own experiences, the series reveals glimpses of Dev's younger years, and explores current aspects of his life, including modern etiquette (regarding texting and social media), and being young and single in the city. Other important people in Dev's life are featured, including Dev's dad, played by Ansari's actual father.
A bracing blend of nimble comedy and knowing cultural commentary.
