I'm not a fan of Aziz Ansari's stand-up, but I found him pretty charming on Parks & Rec. His new Netflix show looks good. It's funny how dramatically film and tv have changed. A decade ago, Master of None, and other shows that blur that drama/indie comedy line, like Transparent, would have been small indie films seen by a few thousand people and quickly forgotten in a few weeks. Now, they're reaching much bigger audiences via on demand video services like Netflix. Also cool to see Indian actors having success as lead actors - from Aziz to Mindy Kaling to Priyanka Chopra - and not having to play cab drivers or terrorists. Oh, and, the actors playing Aziz's parents on the show? His actual parents. Apparently, during his Parks & Rec days, Aziz's dad, a gastroenterologist, would corner Parks & Rec producers during events and ask them if there was anyway they could write him into the show. Ha! Nice to see he finally got his shot! Show premieres on Friday. Seems to be getting raves - currently 91% on Metacritic.
