Meet the most beloved sitcom horse of the '90s - 20 years later. BoJack Horseman was the star of the hit TV show "Horsin' Around," but today he's washed up, living in Hollywood, complaining about everything, and wearing colorful sweaters.
Liz Lemon, head writer of the sketch comedy show "TGS with Tracy Jordan", must deal with an arrogant new boss and a crazy new star, all while trying to run a successful TV show without losing her mind.

Aziz Ansari's character's name is Dev Shah and yet he is shown speaking Tamil in the childhood shots. It is not entirely out of the realm of the possible for a 'Shah' to live in Tamil Nadu but it is a stretch that they would talk Tamil at home and address their grandfather as 'Thatha'. People with the surname Shah are usually from Gujarat and speak Gujarati. See more »
Master of None is the story of 30-something Dev, played by Aziz. It's a bit like 'Louie' for a generation that is not yet convinced that the world is a shitty and sad place. A generation that is being told it can do an be anything but has no idea what or who that is. It's a show that tries to leave out most of the usual banalities and predictable entanglements but to tell stories that feel real, unscripted almost.
To tell stories of relationships that fail or never even got a chance to do so. It's a show that tackles some of the big issues of the American society without taking itself to seriously, without pointing fingers.
If John Oliver would make a TV Series it would probably look like Master of None. It makes you think without being demanding and it makes you laugh without trying to hard to be hilarious.
It's definitely my favorite comedy show right now. It hits the right tone. It's not as shrill as Netflix's Kimmy Schmidt and not as predictable as most of the other comedy shows.
Good job, Netflix. Good job, Aziz. Looking forward to SE2.
