Aziz Ansari. I have loved him from the first time I saw him in Parks & Rec, but there is so much more to love about him these days. At first I did not really understand what the fuss about Master of None was about: it seemed a bit like a standard comedy to me, as I only watched the first two episodes.
Last week Netflix kept on bothering me about the second season of Master of None being up, so I decided to give the first season a go again. I am so happy I did. I love how the New York lifestyle is depicted in this show, I think Dev Shah is a lovely, utterly charming person and things just feel very real, even though there are a lot of comical and theatrical things in there too.
While the first season was very New York-minded, the second season was less because of all the Italian drama that was going on. I think that is a smart move though, it really brought some fresh perspective to the show and its characters. I especially loved the episode about the dating app and the one about all the different New Yorkers that all ended up in the same cinema.
You often forget other people have full lives, just like you and your friends and family, and this episode showed that very well. The part that was silent because of the Maya-story (the death woman) was amazing, and I really think it is very charming how Aziz Ansari did not make it all about himself. There are a lot of episodes that do not even contain as much Dev actually.
I am not going to spoil anything, but especially the last two episodes of this second season Master of None are really something, they really touch the heart, they are beautiful. I am very impressed by Aziz and his team for making such an excellent show, and I hope Dev is mostly based on Aziz himself, as he is a good person.
Also, this show has made me want an apartment in a city, but I still have a few years left in my current house before I can go on adventures like that, hihi. 😉
