Aziz Ansari has a new show on Netflix called Master of None. It's an incredible show. The second episode, titled Parents, was probably the funniest and most touching thing I've seen on television in a long time. Fun fact about that episode: the "actors" playing his parents are Aziz's actual parents.

The show is more or less a semi-autobiographical look at Aziz's life in New York. It's co-written by Aziz and Alan Yang, who was one of the writers/producers on Parks & Rec. I highly recommend it to everybody.

Three episodes in.

Plan B is about the quandary that most childless 30-somethings go through: "Do I really want kids???" (I'm going to make my brother watch this.)

Parents is about how this generation doesn't appreciate their parents. (I called my dad afterwards.)

Hot Ticket is about the etiquette (or, lack thereof) of modern dating, such as: not texting back. (I'm so glad that I'm married.)

Nashville (I think it's episode 5 or 6) is a really, really good episode.

We find the time to watch one episode per night (after the kids fall asleep). I'll probably get to it by Thanksgiving.

Going back to the first episode, once you have your son, that episode will be a whole lot funnier. My brother is like Dev (Aziz) in that he's always telling me how easy it would be for him to have kids. So, I had him watch my daughter for a day. (Insert: Dev/Aziz at the yogurt shop.) My brother slept for 11 hours after watching her (she wore him out)... to which I reminded him: I don't get to send her "back" in order to catch up on sleep; there are no "sick days."

SUMMATION:
Anyone can be a parent for one day. It's the other 364 days that are the bitch.

My wife doesn't like binging on new shows (though she'll blow through Frasier or The Office in a week) so we would watch about how 3 episodes at a time.

There were several times throughout the first episode that I thought to myself, "Oh fudge." Only I didn't say "Fudge." I said THE word, the big one, the queen-mother of dirty words, the "F-dash-dash-dash" word!

As I've mentioned before, the show is some of the best television I've seen. It's hilariously funny and incredibly poignant. I very much hope that he does another season with Netflix.

Yep. There were times when I said out loud: "This is brilliant."

It touches on "key points" of a topic, with the perfect amount of embellishment: not too hyperbolic, but enough to really bring the point home. Such as the kid putting his dick on 30 boxes of frozen waffles. No kid would ever "really" do that, but a kid could definitely ruin 30 boxes of waffles on a millisecond.

Since we saw that, the wife & I have made an homage to that scene ("Get your dick off of the frozen waffles") at least a dozen times. Master of None 312503953
