    Took a chance on this show and was not disappointed, both the story and humor were way better than I expected. Not to mention the excellent acting from an interesting cast consisting of Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez.

    A cosy, well written, mystery show. Lovely cast. Love it.
  • Jan 27, 2023
    This show is so fun to watch and it kills me not to be able to binge watch it. Putting the three of them together is magic!
  • Jan 15, 2023
    Absolutely loved the first season. The actors just go so well together. I love something that keeps me guessing!
  • Jan 14, 2023
    This is a fantastic show! Each episode is a cliffhanger and I couldn't wait for the next one. Great acting!
  • Jan 14, 2023
    To me this might be the best show ever.

    An entertaining take on the murder mystery genre. I think the main cast has a good dynamic and the supporting cast is fun as well. The show's setting as well as its humor make for a cozy atmosphere, that is interrupted properly for drama or suspense when needed. The mysteries are decently well written, the twists and turns are well paced throughout the season and like any good mystery there are plenty of clues to discover if you care to look for them. If you're looking for a murder mystery with a modern premise or even just a comedy with a twist Only Murders in the Building is probably for you.

    This might be my favorite series of all time. I have never laughed so hard throughout the whole series, especially those last 3 episodes, man this was special. I am a sucker for a good murder mystery and i am a big comedy guy, combine them and you get this masterpiece. Martin Short, Steve Martin and Selena Gomez are a iconic trio and work in every way. The side characters are all so well developed and it makes for some really good twist and turns throughout the season. I loved the podcast idea and how they executed it in one single location, the building was a character in itself, i have never been to the Arconia, but i felt home. The comedy is fantastic, it gets you every time. I am so excited for season 2 and who killed Bunny, this was just a amazing experience.
