Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Benjamin: Long term relationships are tough. You can't just expect a big, roaring fire right away, right? You know, you can't put the big logs in first. You start with the small stuff. Kindling, all right? Then you add that, *then* you put in the big logs and *then* you have a roaring fire. And that's a good relationship. But be careful, sometimes kindling is hard to find, you know? Good wood. So, don't take it for granted.

Best for Binge Watching
11 November 2015 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

If you enjoyed Parks and Rec, the Office, and 500 Days of Summer, watch this show.

At first I thought this show was going to be just another Netflix things I watched one or two episodes of and then moved on. Then I got hooked. I finished the whole season in just a few days. I liked how short the episodes were. It felt like they cut the fluff and gave the audience the concentrated good stuff.

I almost turned it off after the first episode or two since I wasn't sure if the casting was just bad actors, or if it was on purpose. I'm still unsure, but the season certainly got better as it went along. Props to the production team and film crew who made creative shots and edit.

Great backstories mixed with a brutal dose of comedy makes for a super entertaining show which seems more like real life than fantasy. I felt like so many clever things were done and I could relate so much with Dev, the main character, in his quest for enjoying life yet overcoming first world problems.

All in all, Aziz Ansari is brilliant, engaging, and hilarious.

He deserves high praise for letting the world have glimpse into what a fun yet very real life he lives. Can't wait for more.
