Quirky, comical, and fun is how I’d describe this show.
But what is Only Murders in the Building about?
Here’s the synopsis:
Three strangers share an obsession with true crime and suddenly find themselves wrapped up in one. When a grisly death occurs inside their exclusive Upper West Side apartment building, the trio suspects murder and employs their precise knowledge of true crime to investigate the truth.
Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez, the trio are beyond fabulous, their chemistry is definitely the highlight of the show… And Steve’s and Martin’s comical timing (even in the most unexpected of places) is so much fun to watch.
There was a podcast that was running alongside the show’s episodes, where they highlighted the behind-the-scenes process and focused on the writers etc, and it was intriguing to see the amount of work that was put in, considering it’s not just a comedy show, there’s the murder mystery aspect as well (the central point of the show).
The balance between the mystery and the comedy is, I guess, the key to why everyone’s raving about the show.
There are twists and turns, the comedy and the constant hunt for the clues make the show such a fabulous watch and a great mood booster as well.
If you have heard about it, or if you haven’t either way, you should definitely give this a watch. Meanwhile, awaiting season 2.
