Netflix Streaming Report: Master of None Season 1 and More

Welcome to your Netflix Streaming Report for November 12, 2015. After the long week you deserve a relaxing staycation with a bowl of popcorn, a bucket of ice cream, and only your Netflix queue to judge you. This past week, Netflix Watch Instant has been kind enough to supply us with Master of None Season 1, The Wolfpack, The Little Death, and more.

Netflix Master of None Aziz Ansari

Master of None Season 1 (Aziz Ansari, Alan Yang) Rated TV-MA [30 min] – New Yorker Dev takes on such pillars of maturity as the first big job, a serious relationship, and busting sex offenders on the subway. Starring Aziz Ansari, Noël Wells, Eric Wareheim, Lena Waithe, Kelvin Yu, and H. Jon Benjamin [Watch the Trailer]

I can’t say Master of None is the best Netflix original series thus far because I haven’t had the chance to catch up on all of them, but what I can say is that Aziz Ansari has made a damn good show. Master of None wears its heart on its sleeve to deliver some of the most sincere, observational comedy about love and life as a 30-something struggling, minority actor in New York. It’s as if I’m watching a beautiful, cinematic adaptation of Aziz’s stand-up. Fans of Louie will love Master of None. It’s not as dark as Louis C.K.’s humor, but it carries a more endearing, indie romantic dramedy vibe.

The Wolfpack documentary

The Wolfpack (Crystal Moselle) Rated R [80 min] – Locked away from society in an apartment on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, the Angulo brothers learn about the outside world through the films that they watch. Nicknamed, ‘The Wolfpack,’ the brothers spend their childhood reenacting their favorite films using elaborate homemade props and costumes. Their world is shaken up when one of the brothers escapes and everything changes. Starring Bhagavan Angulo, Govinda Angulo, Jagadisa Angulo, and Krsna Angulo

One of the most peculiar stories I have ever heard of, The Wolfpack is a great, bite-sized documentary that was meant for Netflix stream. There isn’t a completely satisfying narrative, but the series of events told by the siblings endure is absolutely fascinating.

The Little Death Role Play

The Little Death (Josh Lawson) Rated PG-13 [96 min] – The secret lives of five suburban couples living in Sydney reveal both the fetishes and the repercussions that come with sharing them. Starring Bojana Novakovic, Damon Herriman, and Josh Lawson

Similarly told like Babel or Crash, The Little Death is a lighthearted romp that attempts too hard to interconnect a handful of couples through their unusual, sexual fetishes. The individual stories are better than their whole, with some working better than others. With all the best intentions, The Little Death is at times sweet and awkwardly humorous, but sadly poorly constructed.

Dear Jack (Joshua Morrisroe) Unrated [67 min] – Chronicles Andrew McMahon on a roller-coaster year, through the highs of releasing the first Jack’s Mannequin album and the lows of being diagnosed with leukemia and breaking up with the love of his life. Starring Andrew McMahon, Tommy Lee, Lin McMahon

I’m solely suggesting Dear Jack because I’ve been a huge fan of Andrew McMahon’s work ever since his Something Corporate days – m/. The man has a wonderful talent and is the living embodiment of perseverance.
