Master of None – Too Good to be Real

master-of-none-netflix-2

Semenjak nonton stand up comedy Aziz Anshari di Netflix di suatu malam yang dingin dan hidung mampet, akhirnya memutuskan untuk menonton Master of None. To be honest, episode-episode awal di season 1 jalan cerita-nya cukup aneh. Aneh karena terlalu real dan apa ada nya. Walaupun beberapa actor di awal berakting dengan awkward (and yes, yang jadi orang tua-nya Dev adalah real parents of Aziz himself), tapi menurut gue itu nilai lebihnya. Being real. Akhirnya hal itu yang membuat gue terus melanjutkan menonton episode selanjutnya.

Di season 1, ada satu jalan cerita yang menurut gue cukup menyentil perempuan galau berumur mid-20 yang sedang hidup sendiri di down under: masalah jodoh. Di episode-episode akhir season 1 diceritakan si Dev udah punya pacar namanya Rachel. Ketika mereka berdua datang ke pernikahan salah seorang teman, saat itu lah Dev berpikir apakah hubungan pacaran mereka (yang tergolong serius karena sudah tinggal bersama) akan bisa melanjutkan ke jenjang pernikahan? Its thousand dollar question for everybody, I guess. At this age, ketika lo sedang menjalin hubungan dengan seseorang, that seseorang is most likely end up to be the one you’ll get married. Yet, if you never have a picture of you and yourself get married with that seseorang, it is also hard to end up the relationship since you know you love that seseorang. You already invest your time, effort, love and many things to be together.

This episode remind me with one of many reasons why I finally broke up with my last boyfriend (hi H, just in case you reading this). One time, we just went to the mall and there is Payung Teduh played in one of the corner. Entah acara apa ya. Dulu gue selalu berpikir, romantis rasanya nonton payung teduh kalau sama pacar. Nah tapi entah kenapa saat itu rasanya malah… awkward. As in, there’s something wrong that I felt. Wrong feeling, wrong situation, wrong person? At that time, no matter how hard I deny the feeling, I know this guy is not someone that I want to spend my life with. But just like Dev, it is hard to have a break-up. Even, ketika lo udah putus, kenapa banyak orang yang akhirnya balikan lagi karena (menurut teori dan asumsi gue) you tend to stick with ‘familiar’ things rather than to go out and have adventures to find something new.

And when you know, you know that it won’t work anymore. Kalau kata Shawn Mendes,

Cause we can’t fix what’s broken
And I know it’s gonna hurt
But darling I’ll go first
Cause I won’t keep on saying those three empty words

Speaking of relationship. Gue belajar banyak dari relationship terakhir gue, bahwa penting untuk mengejar kebahagiaan diri sendiri. Terkesan egois, maybe. But, you just can’t lie if your feeling is not there anymore. I’d rather go and find my own happiness rather than stuck in unhappy relationship. Like literally go, pergi ke Australia misalkan 😀 Life is too short to stuck in a place that make you don’t grow. 🙂

Well, balik lagi ke Master of None. This is one of my favourite series. And season 2 is just getting much much better! Salah satu episode-nya bahkan wins Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series! Can’t wait for season 3. ❤
