    A polished jewel of the genre starring an actor-comedian who has seized this opportunity and soared with it.

    It's innovative, shockingly clever, sophisticated, sexy, and beautifully executed. In other words, it's the opposite of virtually every sitcom in prime time.

    Quippy, topical but also thoughtful, Master of None is perfectly binge-worthy and thus the ideal Netflix show. If you start watching, be sure to set aside time for all 10 episodes.

    Dev may be drifting a bit, but Master of None sets exceptionally ambitious goals for itself--and for the most part, it nails them.

    The stories gain richness when Dev moves outside his comfort zone.... There is no level on which Master Of None does not bring pleasure.

    It sounds a tried and true setup, but Master of None immediately breaks the mold, infusing the struggling actor formula with a touching helping of both heart and humor.

There won't be enough explosions for them. Everyone's talking about it living up to the hype. I honestly believe if a show isn't bombastic with trashy race humor, your everyday internet-going college-aged dickweed is going to say it didn't live up to the hype. That's what people want: boobs, swearing, and race-humor. Master of None is a bit more insightful, and funny. Expand

Much like Louis the show isn't a conventional sit-com and is able to successfully jump from humorous scenes to more serious ones thanks to a good cast (I thought Noel Wells was particularly good as Rachel) and some smart writing.

    I certainly hope to see a second season at some point.

Some episode, especially at theOver-averge aesthetical value, which has pleased me right from the start, nice soundtrack, nice overall style. Some episode, especially at the beginning, were OK to watch and had some minor laughs. But as the show continued, lots of cheap clichées, embarrising self-display of the protagonist, nothing substantial. It's about as realistic as the The Big Bang Theory or Two and a Half Men, just less funny and entertaining and most importantly it pretends to display the reality all the time.

    This may be a nice series for teenage girls or blind-eyed life-loving people who want to relate to oh-so-cute characters and have joy in sharing their predictable emotions, but even though I tried to like the show and the main characters, I am increasingly repelled by the superficial display of empathy and the protagonist's attempt to appear cute, charming and witty.

    For me, this show is anti-intellectual and overemotional. If you are this kind of guy, you might enjoy it. But in my eyes it has no intellectual value whatsoever, regardless of the wisdom it tries to convey in some episodes.
