When you first see the headline stars of the Hulu series "Only Murders in the Building", you may think we are still in the mid-80's. Steve Martin and Martin Short were 2 of the shining comedy stars of the era. But the 3rd star of this series brings you back to the present. Selena Gomez. Where does she fit in and how, you may ask? That is why we watch the show. OK, I'll tell you a little bit but that's all.
Starting out as apparent strangers living in the same building, fate sees them sharing an elevator. As we see each of them enjoying the latest episode of their favorite mystery podcast, an emergency forces them to evacuate the building. Meeting up again, they learn they have this common interest. This starts the journey of friendship while investigating a murder the police have written off as suicide. Seeing who you can trust, as well as how well you really know someone you just met are important lessons along the way. Victims and clues lead to suspects as they unravel everything. Follow our three lead wannabe detectives down the rabbit hole of humor, suspense, and mystery, not to mention the sexiest game of Scrabble you have ever seen.
Yes, you read that correctly. If humor and mystery are right up your alley, this 10 episode series is a quick binge. Chiming in at about 30 minutes per episode, you can kill it in a weekend if you have nothing else to do.
When Greg and I saw the original trailer last year we knew this was going to be one for us and we weren't disappointed. This "solve a murder" is very reminiscent of the old style murder mysteries but with a contemporary twist. Looking for and trying to solve the clues in this was definitely half then fun, and with 30 minute weekly episodes it is easy to stay on top of it.
Of course if you haven't watched season 1 now is the PERFECT time to binge it. Streaming exclusively on Hulu in the US (I am not sure where it would be streaming outside the US but check out your Disney+ support options - I know for example in Australia recently a Hulu Original movie was on one of the Disney Streamer as they are all the same family umbrella).
If you HAVEN'T seen season 1 - watch for the "There's Our Musers" scene. OK so technically it isn't actually Musers - but it is the best little group of fans that are following their podcast - just like our awesome Musers follow us.
