Review: 'Master Of None' Is Shallow, Deep And Hilarious

Comedian Aziz Ansari’s new Netflix show “Master of None” opens with a scene involving the Plan B pill after a one date hook-up and many jokes about Uber. It centers on an Indian-American actor trying to make it on screen.

In a time when more television networks are trying to tackle diversity and grab millennials, “Master of None” is doing both and garnering universal praise.

NPR’s Eric Deggans tells Here & Now’s Indira Lakshmanan that the show is a perfect follow to the New York sitcoms of the ’90s – think “Friends” and “Seinfeld” – that featured almost no people of color.
