TV Corner: Master of None

I finished season two of Aziz Ansari's Netflix series Master of None last night, and there is so much I loved about it.

I love that it's a show set in New York with a cast that actually represents what New York City looks like. I loved the entire arc with Bobby Cannavale: I saw exactly where that was headed, and it's saying something that I trusted it would handled well. I love that it's a show written by people who love people.

Without giving away any spoilers, the Thanksgiving episode (with guest star Angela Bassett!) was one of my favorite episodes of both seasons.

After we finished season two, I said to Iain, "Between Parks & Rec and Master of None, Aziz Ansari has teleported directly to the top of my Please Don't Turn Out to Be a Fucking Creeper list." You get it.
