Difficult to DIY with a series so charming and sparklingOnly murders in the building from Disney+. The ten episodes are devoured like an Agatha Christie novel, peppered with effective gags and refreshing self-mockery.

The second season, online today on Disney+ in French and English, does not disappoint, quite the contrary. She adds the amazing Shirley MacLaine to her five-star cast, which also includes two big names in humor: Steve Martin and Martin Short.
boo! Big show of boomers mocking the trolls on twitter. No way. As hacksa great comedy available on Crave, Only murders in the building bridges the generations with singer-actress Selena Gomez adding the lead trio.
And nothing in the cross-generational plots of this tasty comedy feels forced or cliche. Young, old, thirty or seventy, they learn from each other, get on each other’s nerves (of course), and form genuine friendships without making it seem like a top-flight episode game of lifearound 1991.
It’s fun and funny. Thumbs up from me. It is viewed at once.
For those who don’t knowOnly murders in the building, scandal, sir!, a brief synopsis. Lonely artist Mabel (Selena Gomez), fallen actor Charles (Steve Martin) and declining theater director Oliver (Martin Short) live in the same landmark building on New York’s Upper West Side. The three residents of the famous Arconia – as the building is called – may not see each other, but share an all-consuming passion for true crime podcasts.
When one of their neighbors is shot in the head, the three amateur detectives team up and invent their own podcast real crimewhich will tie the cops to the identity of the killer of her apartment building (luxury, obviously).
The tenth and final episode of the first season ended with an icy slap. On her living room floor, poor Mabel (Selena Gomez) was cradling the bloodied body of Bunny, the hateful Chairwoman of Arconia’s Residents’ Committee. A long knitting needle pierced the torso of the victim, who had several “enemies” nearby.
The second season ofOnly murders in the building continues at this very moment: So who liquidated Bunny, a lonely and bitter woman? The cops suspect our three popular and lovable Sunday detectives, who are the first to go to the corpse’s bed. But due to lack of evidence, the police release Mabel, Charles and Oliver, who then attack the second season of their podcast, dedicated to the hunt for Bunny’s killer.
The first three 35-minute episodes (out of ten total) take detours that take us (too much) away from the central investigation. In the fourth episode, the usual rhythm continues and the series catches us in its fascinating webs. Tracks blur, clues pile up, and the hunt for the assassin becomes obsessive.
Parallel to, Only murders in the building never loses its original and eccentric tone. Each episode of the series takes the form of a podcast episode that delves into many characters’ teeming pasts, more complex than they reveal.
Among the new faces ofOnly murders in the buildingdiscover the hilarious Amy Schumer in her own role, transitioning into role penthouse where singer Sting lived last season. Model and comedian Cara Delevingne plays an art gallery owner who is interested in Mabel’s work and whose intentions are confusing.
Brilliant Tina Fey reprises her mini-role as Cinda Caning, a celebrity podcaster who starts a podcast – Only killers in the building – about our three amigos Mabel, Charles and Oliver.
As for Shirley MacLaine, she plays Bunny’s mother and her opulent personal story will lead our sleuths down a tortuous path.
In the episodes, viewers juggle jigsaw puzzle pieces like a multi-million dollar erotic painting, hidden elevators, spicy secrets from the past, and rivalries that date back to the 1970s. Once again, Martin Short inherits the strongest answers. He’s hilarious.
Oh yes, like in the first chapter, Selena Gomez always speaks through clenched teeth and clenched jaws. What do you want, this multi-grade series can’t be perfect either.
folks at the fair!
