    Who needs a continuing plot arc when the characters are so beautifully defined and performed? Master is among the most character-driven shows on TV, and we’re the better for it. The laughter comes easy on our part, but there’s a lot of hard, smart work being done to make the show feel so effortless and naturalistic.

    Stylistically and thematically adventurous, Master of None continually shifts tone and focus, with no two episodes alike. ... Dev may not yet mastered life, but there's no doubt Ansari has mastered his craft. [15-28 May 2017, p.16]

    This might be the show of the year. ... Even the benefits of giving itself space to experiment, or of having those funny jokes, aren’t what makes Master of None’s second season as good as it is. What really makes it work is its endless faith in the idea that people will take care of each other in the end.

    The second [season] features a number of self-contained episodes that are essentially extended vignettes, investigating Dev’s universe but only tangentially related to the season’s overall narrative. These diversions are among the most imaginative and insightful episodes of the season, and provide a balance to the series that was previously missing. Cultural commentary is no longer incidental to romance comedy.

    It has a lovely lyrical wandering quality about it. This year, there are probably more smiles than laughs. The humor is less jokey and more organic (keeping with the food motif). The episodes are more themed than plotted, mostly a series of interconnected vignettes. Characters drop in and out.

    While I share Aziz Ansari’s appreciation for the people, the food and the sights, I really hope he and Netflix got a nice tax break for the first two highly skippable episodes of his otherwise enjoyable comedy series Master of None. ... Ansari proves his show is best when it tells a little story about a large idea.

Some people have criticised the jokes, to which the only thing I can say it's their sense of humour and it's a shame this doesn't appeal to them. However, to those that complain that they are having social commentary shoved down their throat, I say that this is just an accurate account of what it's like not being white in that city. Race often plays a part in conversations. Nobody is given a label as "racist" or "dick", every character is fully-rounded, realistic and not judged by the writers, which helps the audience to believe every scenario without feeling patronised.
    What is also commendable are the various and creative techniques that the writers tell stories. I won't spoil any, but they have taken some unconventional risks that have payed off spectacularly. I cannot wait to see what I duo does next, but I can only hope it is even half as special as this.

The show is dry, and the jokes fall flat. I didn't particularly enjoy season 1 mostly because the acting was absolutely horrible and it seems to plague season 2 as well. Starting off in Italy and showing the sights and foods was brilliant but once again it's undermined by terrible acting from mostly everyone apart from Aziz ( who plays himself). The conversations among people feel robotic and it feels like a rehearsal that happened to be filmed. Expand
