Dating none

04 Feb

Quite literally, in the case of Aziz Ansari's new Netflix series Master of None.

The show opens with a shot of a darkened apartment, where the vague shapes and unmistakable sounds of two people having sex can be made out.

They're not sure, so Dev (Ansari) and Rachel (Noël Wells) do what any modern day sex partners would do. Even the Internet doesn't know the answer, though, so she decides that they should go the safe route and get Plan B.

At the pharmacy, Dev pays for the pill, excitedly finding and buying Martinelli's apple juice in the process.

With a teleplay from Aziz Ansari and Alan Yang, based on a story by Sarah Schneider, and fluid, intimate direction from Eric Wareheim, “First Date” is one of the best televisual explorations of dating apps, an aspect of modern life that television so often tries but usually fails to mine for comedy.

Whereas many of television’s takes on dating apps go broad and seem to rely too much on coming up with a funny name for the imagined app, Master Of None gets into some of the weird specifics of app-driven hook-up culture.

Judaism generally recognizes that Christians and Moslems worship the same G-d that we do and those who follow the tenets of their religions can be considered righteous in the eyes of G-d.

The same is true of two people who marry but don't share a common faith.

Following Christ is the most important decision you'll ever make. Choosing a mate who shares your faith and who will support you in your spiritual growth.

In 2 Corinthians , the Apostle Paul says that believers should not "be unequally yoked with non-believers." While it's true that this passage does not specifically mention marriage, it does refer to being bound in a relationship with another person—no relationship is more binding than marriage.

Master Of None has been subtly fucking around with storytelling this season, departing even more from traditional narrative structures than the first season does.

Each episode this season has been a loosely structured but evocative and charming vignette, and “First Date” is a vignette made up of smaller vignettes.
