Review: Master of None Season 2 Episode 8 “Thanksgiving”

While I appreciate the continual commentary of the make-up of New York city and the social aspects to it, with this episode honing in the concept of being gay and black, these forms of episode need a greater balance between theme and story. There seems to be a formula in place of jumping back and forth between a singular episode dedicated to diversity and then an episode focussing on Dev’s story and romance. The writing and direction is great, and this episode brilliantly realises the characters within their younger selves, but I wish the serialisation was more progressive. I did, however, enjoy the extended look at Denise’s family, and their evolving reaction to her sexuality. 7.8/10
