  • Ed Bark

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

  • Ben Travers

    Like "Louie" before it, Master of None is unpredictable in where it's headed next. It uses the natural rhythms of life--of conversation--to move forward with the topics Ansari and Yang want to discuss.

    Indiewire Full Review
  • Verne Gay

    As you would expect, very (very) funny.

    Newsday Full Review
  • Gail Pennington

    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.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Scott D. Pierce

    The best new TV comedy this fall isn't actually on TV.... Master of None is very much in the style of "Louis," except it is funnier. Really. It's far less about drama and more about comedy. This is a show for adults, about adults.

    The Salt Lake Tribune Full Review
  • James Poniewozik

    Master of None, the year’s best comedy straight out of the gate, is a lot of things.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Tirdad Derakhshani

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

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Brian Tallerico

    By the end of the season, Master of None is so confident in its tone and execution that it almost feels like a show in its fourth or fifth year.... Yes, this year of Peak TV continues. And this is one of its best shows. Full Review
  • Alan Sepinwall

    This is a great show, which you might expect given the number of "Parks" veterans involved (including Mike Schur in a godfather capacity as one of the executive producers), but which still feels surprising given the show's clever structure and eagerness to embrace other perspectives.

  • David Wiegand

    It doesn’t really make sense to list the stand-outs because there that would imply the existence of lesser episodes, and there are none. Still several installments epitomize the care with which Ansari and Yang have crafted multidimensional characters and situation.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Jeff Korbelik

    There are times when the dialogue is rough and doesn’t flow quite right, but not enough to overshadow the humor. Ansari has a gem of a show here.

    The Lincoln Journal Star Full Review
  • Molly Eichel

    Ansari and Yang come out of the gate strong, showcasing who they are and how they view the world with a clarity and assuredness that few others have been able to master.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Jeff Jensen

    It’s a powerful expression of his [Aziz Ansari's] perspective and range--and one of 2015’s best shows.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Daniel D'Addario

    Master of None, one of the most assured shows in recent memory, knows exactly what it’s doing.

    Time Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    Master of None avoids comedy conventions, eschewing a regular cast in favor of recurring characters and guest stars who pop up in episodes devoted to different themes. The show plays a bit like “Louie” in that way, but Master of None is funnier, less dramatic and tonally closer to Woody Allen’s lighter fare.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Ken Tucker

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

    Yahoo TV Full Review
  • Mark Peikert

    Master of None is more articulate than any other show at putting under a microscope that generation’s neuroses, desires, and ambivalence. The series also happens to be sexy, hilarious, and very moving, a tribute to Ansari’s observational powers and ability to pinpoint the zeitgeist.

    The Wrap Full Review
  • David Sims

    While Louie is often aggressively dreamlike, Master of None feels like a perfect distillation of Ansari’s best comedy. It picks apart the social conventions of his generation, ponders the insidiousness of racism and sexism in entertainment, and obsesses over his inability to form romantic connections--a smart comedy of manners that has more in common with Seinfeld than its contemporaries.

    The Atlantic Full Review
  • Matthew Gilbert

    It is a vibrant, original pleasure.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Margaret Lyons

    If Master of None isn't perfect, it's awfully damn close. Along with recent shows like Catastrophe, Transparent, and Broad City, Master feels like the point of contemporary half-hour narrative television.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Willa Paskin

    Catastrophe, You’re the Worst, and The Mindy Project have proved that long-term relationships can be funny, sexy, enduring, and volatile all once. Master of None joins their ranks: the sweetest, realest, and most poignant of the bunch.

    Slate Full Review
  • Maureen Ryan

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

    Variety Full Review
  • Sam Woolf

    The writing, cast, and characters are all so enjoyable that Netflix ordering another season would seem a no-brainer.

    We Got This Covered Full Review
  • Emily Nussbaum

    Wide-ranging and genuinely funny.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Sonia Saraiya

    Master of None is about grappling with a specific kind of privilege, and figuring out how to live with it; in that sense, it is the definitive millennial comedy.

    Salon Full Review
  • Robert Lloyd

    [Master of None] is smart, sweet and funny in ways both familiar and fresh.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Hank Stuever

    The overall effect of Master of None is one of fullness and fun.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Kristi Turnquist

    Master of None is a warmer, sweeter show than "Louie" often is, and it's less cynical than a raft of other comedies on TV and elsewhere.

    The Oregonian Full Review
  • Tim Goodman

    There's a corollary here to Louis CK and his FX series Louie, though Ansari and Master of None are not yet on that level.... What he's proving, with each episode of Master of None, is that he was the right choice for a fresh vision of a TV show.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Josh Bell

    Like Louie, Master of None sometimes seems a bit scattered, and not everything Ansari tries works.

    Las Vegas Weekly Full Review
  • Zach Hollwedel

    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.
