On the basis of the first trailer, comedian Aziz Ansari’s new Netflix original series, “Master of None,” is closer kin to “Louie” or “Girls,” low-key and rambling, than to his high-energy Tom Haverford on “Parks and Recreation”—and that’s just fine by us.
Funny and easygoing, Ansari, as a 30-year-old actor named Dev, navigates New York and a host of awkward situations. He “treats” his girlfriend (former “Saturday Night Live” cast member Noël Wells) to the morning-after pill, gets schooled in misogynist comments online, and cautions kids not to yell out ethnic descriptions of passerby. By the tables are turned on Dev by his girlfirend’s grandmother, “Master of None” had us hooked.
All ten episodes premiere on Netflix Nov. 6.
