The show was almost titled "A Little Lost" after the song by Arthur Russell. The song plays in Master of None: Mornings (2015) and is said to be Dev's theme song. See more »

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.

Much more than just laughs.
10 November 2015 | by mohsinkhalilSee all my reviews

Usually I would never go out and actually make the bold move of writing my opinion, let alone writing a review, but for this one I had to seeing how so many people are shrugging the show off for being "bland comedy".

Frankly the show is much more than just a comedy, its more of an emotional roller-coaster. It takes different real life situation and problems and introduces them to the viewers in the a more comical way. That is what good comedians do, they are able to integrate real life with a comical twist and Aziz Ansari has not failed to do so.

There are a few down points here and there, like the seemingly half hearted acting of his parents, but give them credit since they are his ACTUAL parents with no acting background.

Long Story Short, This isn't a sit com, this isn't a Modern Family like unreal comedy, its real life situations and stories told through a comedians prospective.
