Master of None

I watched the entire first season of Master of None this month. The Netflix series starring Aziz Ansari is incredibly watchable. Interesting and entertaining, it follows Aziz's character Dev negotiating 21st Century dating complexities and life as the son of Indian immigrant parents. There are many funny lines, awkward moments, and scenarios. But what I enjoyed most about this show is the generous and kind nature of Dev, who is curious and interested in others experiences. He devotes time to exploring his parents' lives and struggles as new immigrants, the life and personality of his girlfriend's grandmother, the common experiences women have with creepy guys. Dev's energy and respect for others infuse this show with a very unique charm.
