Aziz Ansari (and fellow writer Alan Yang) delivered two seasons of Master of None, a meandering observational comedy about a 30-year-old Indian actor in New York, and they are pretty great. The focus is on his character's life, professional, personal and romantic, but it doesn't mind exploring some of the ancillary characters, or in one case, completely random New Yorkers. The opener to the often romantic second season, is a full-on, beautiful tribute to the great Italian film The Bicycle Thief. Most of the time, an episode has a theme, spelled out in its title, and the tone swings between comedy and drama, but is always character-based. The perspective remains fresh because Master of None's world is filled with diversity, and matter-of-factly explores the lives of Indian-, Asian-, Jewish-, LGBT-, differently abled, etc. Americans. A funny/sad show that despite its cleverness and style, draws from reality. The music in the show is pretty cool too.
