11. 'Master of None' (Netflix)

Aziz Ansari has a deceptively light touch in this modern romance – yet Master of None is full of moments that stick in your mind and keep bringing you back. As Dev, he searches NYC for the right woman and the perfect tapas bar, while trying to salvage his acting career by hosting Clash of the Cupcakes. Sometimes the comedy gets candid, like when he brings in his real-life Muslim Indian parents for an episode on why he still lies to them about eating pork. And sometimes it delivers a kick to the hear – see the "Thanksgiving" episode, where Ansari sees his lesbian best friend (Lena Waithe) and her mom (Angela Bassett) come to terms with each other, one awkward holiday dinner at a time.
