I know there's a few people watching in the Netflix thread, but this really needs it's own thread because it's amazing and it deserves more exposure. It's fantastically written, and it seems pretty smartly shot for a sitcom, which is unusual (it's the first comedy show I've seen that's shot in cinema-style widescreen, which helps)

Also it's got Aziz' actual parents in playing his character's parents, which is utterly brilliant (and the parent-focused episode actually manages to be pretty emotive as well as hilarious).

Seriously, go watch the first episode on Netflix and get back to me.

Nice idea.

My and my girlfriend are loving this.

We have watched the first 6 episodes, taking out time I would normally just watch a Netflix show in 2 days.

His dad is amazing and hilarious, Aziz's brother also worked on the show in a writing capacity.

I would just say stick with it as the first episode is the weakest of the one's I've watched and the 2nd one was much funnier and well written.

Glad someone's finally made a sitcom where a highly successful writer and comedian pretends to be unemployed and directionless

It's nice to see such a refreshingly new idea finally given a chance

I watched the 1st ep and it was ok so good news that it gets better. Was going to watch it anyway as the reviews have been the best I've seen for a while.

Got bored half way through the 1st episode...actually I'm not sure bored is right but it definitely wasn't good.

I'll give it the second episode but if it doesn't get better then its not for me.

Started on this last night and ended up watching the first 7 episodes, really enjoying it. I think the first time I saw Aziz was in Scrubs season 8 and I've been a fan of him since then. The relationship between him and Rachel is nice, and there're some funny moments throughout. The chicken moment in the parents episode managed to tow the line between hilarious and heartbreaking extremely well.

Isn't he employed in some way or another for most of the show? Adverts/voiceovers/film extras/etc

You might not think it's that unique a premise but it's easily one of the best written, and it draws a lot from personal experiences he's spoken about in his stand-up, so it's still semi-autobiographical. And it's "refreshing" in a multitude of other ways.

How far through have you got?

First episode was pretty rubbish, it just wasn't funny. Got bored and stopped watching after 20 minutes.

Thanks for the heads up on this, watched 3 episodes tonight and enjoyed them all. It reminds me a lot of Louis.

Finished this tonight. I really like it. I can see how it could be grating but I was hooked.

It's very similar to Louie though, more so in certain episodes. Louie definitely bumps up the absurdity more.

That was a great first season. I liked all of it but I felt like the quality really ramped up on the second half. Hopefully a second season is on the way.

I totally forgot I made a thread for this. Thought I'd carry on watching the second season, the Death Castle episode is amazing :wub:

Oh man episode 9 gets heavy. Thought it was the season finale as it's like an hour long but apparently not!

Wtf was that chestburster scene though

I gave up on season 2. Me and my Mrs both quite liked S1 but 2 didn't grab us at all. The stuff in Italy was just irritating and Aziz has this horrible arrogance these days that I can't really enjoy anymore. I'll stick to him in Parks and Recreation. I get the impression he thinks he's some genius writer.

As for the Louie comparison, I don't really see it. Both are very different with one being excellent.

How are they very different? Both semi-autobiographical shows about working/dating/growing-up/living in New York, both flit between being a comedy and not a comedy at all, both have experimental elements to them. Louie is on another planet in terms of quality, mind you. Not that I'm not a fan of Master of None. Saying you don't see the comparison is a bit odd.

I absolutely adored Master of None. Watched it though on my own, then again with my daughter. It's a masterpiece in television comedy. We've now went back and started watching Parks & Rec as it has so many people we love in it, yet we'd never seen it.
