Master of None Review: What Happened In ‘Comedy Drama’ Season 1?

Master of None Review: (Master of None) is a beautiful, heartwarming ‘Comedy drama' about a struggling actor navigating New York City's urban jungle.

The Show incorporates mainly neglected sex, gender, and race themes into a popular comedy.

The show isn't hilarious enough to make you laugh out loud, but it does put a grin on your face.

There are some amusing moments, but most of the memorable ones are connected instantaneously.

It takes various real-life situations and issues and presents them to the audience in a more comedic light.

That is what excellent comedians do; they can blend real-life situations with a comedic twist, and Aziz Ansari has done just that.

The first season focuses on the hardships of an immigrant (Indian) in New York City, particularly how he attempts to live a normal life with his white peers.

As a man of his principles, Dev (Aziz Ansari) finds it doubly difficult to pursue his dream of becoming an actor.

The second season begins with an episode shot entirely in noir in Italy, which is a solid opening to the season that establishes a small tempo before becoming dramatic near the finish.

This season seeks to focus more on the stories of other characters as well, but they're all tied to Dev in some manner.

Overall, the show is unique in terms of originality and realism.
