Life is Too Short, Be Happy
In this season of “Master Of None”, Dev (played by Ansari) is living in Modena, Italy after his breakup with Season 1 girlfriend Rachel (played by Noël Wells, who only appears in one episode this season). He then goes back to New York City, where he gets a new acting gig as well as a new romantic interest Francesca (played by Alessandra Mastronardi). Dev goes through many misadventures as he keeps trying to find out what he’s really doing with his life.
This season somehow improves on its’ predecessor, with Ansari and co-creator Alan Yang taking more artistic liberties. The first episode, “The Thief”, is filmed in black-and-white and takes inspiration from the classic movie “The Bicycle Thief”. And in the episode “New York, I Love You”, it does not even focus on the main characters. Instead, it focuses on the lives of three strangers living in New York and leaves the viewers completely intrigued.
This season also features more prominent guest stars, including Bobby Cannavale, John Legend, and Angela Bassett. Cannavale, in particular, has a very prominent role this season as “Chef Jeff”, who is a producer for Dev’s new show “Cupcake Clash”. Bassett also gives a riveting performance as Dev’s friend Denise’s mother in the episode “Thanksgiving”.

In fact, even though Ansari’s performance is very good, his character is not the main focus for the entire season. In most shows, this would be very risky, but in “Master of None”, this makes the show that much better. This is due in part to the fantastic writing, with Ansari contributing to every episode this season (along with Alan Yang and Lena Waithe, who plays Denise).
Overall, the second season of “Master of None” is profound and relatable. The artistic decisions and writing are improved upon, and the characters are more fleshed out and relatable. Overall, Ansari and Yang’s show is becoming one of Netflix’s masterpieces.
