Master of None
(2015)

Favourite show in recent memory
The realness of this show is what hit me the most. It's labeled as comedy and that's certainly the first hook. Aziz Ansari is a good comedian, and I recommend his stand-up.

But it's as much the comedy as the sad moments in this show (and the excellent music sprinkled throughout) that make it special.

It's a show that feels so real and unscripted at times that I find myself having flashbacks and experiencing raw feelings as they are being evoked from some hidden depths of my own memory, of things that have happened.

I am convinced great comedians have this ability of brutal honesty that goes beyond the funny, it touches the true core of what being a human is, and how culture and society intermingle to form a person.

Aziz and the writers of this show have shown to possess this quality.
