Only Murders In The Building

I had a six word story post planned today but decided this was way more important and we as the WP community need to talk about this. And by this I mean the absolute brilliance which is the show Only Murders In The Building.

This show came out a couple of weeks ago and stars Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez. I know you may be thinking what is Selena doing in this mix but you know what? It just works. Like she’s perfect for the character she plays.

The show revolves around the lives of these three people who live in the same building and listen to the same true crime podcast. They didn’t interact much until a suicide in the building brought them all together. Behind each character there’s more than what meets the eye and they all have personal things they are dealing with.

The plot of this show is so unique, the actors are obviously brilliant and it pulls of being funny, interesting and thrilling at the same time!

The reason I’m talking about this show is because my sister and I have been binging it for the last few days and anxiously waiting for the next episode to come out.

If you are currently watching this show and caught up with the latest episode please let me know in the comments below because we absolutely need to talk about it. If you haven’t seen this show I don’t know what you’re waiting for. This is a sign to go watch it!! Like right now stop reading this and go watch it! If you want me to write a detailed review on the show please let me know in the comments.

Edit: You guys my lights just went and came back and as soon as I they came back I saw a HUGE spider sitting on the wall. I almost had a heart attack y’all I’m not even kidding. I’m not usually scared of spiders and generally find them very cute but this thing looked like it would murder me in my sleep. Wow, Halloween month must have come early this year.

Edit 2: A super weird looking insect that looks like it crawled out of hell came out of my wall?? You guys, I’ve never been so scared in my life. It looked like a tiny scorpion. Wtf is going on. I think I’m going to die.

Edit 3: Here’s a picture of what I can only assume is one of Satan’s pets:

      1. Okay, thanks. I saw a different kind of earwig in California. It mainly appeared on the artichokes my Mum grew in the garden. It was quite a job removing them before cooking!

  1. Picture is too small for me to tell really well, but the Ground Crab spider looks like a crab painful bite, but not harmful to humans though deadly to insects https://www.insectidentification.org/insect-description.php?identification=Ground-Crab-Spider…not quite scorpion. Also there are Pseudoscorpion which are harmless. https://www.insectidentification.org/insect-description.php?identification=Pseudoscorpion … both are found in Ontario. Hope this is of use and solves the mystery 🙂

  2. You have piqued my interest. I’m definitely going to give this show a watch!
    And that bug really does look diabolical.
    And that’s the thing, out of all the animals present on this earth, insects just had to be the most in number. 😣

    1. Don’t worry it’s alive and safely away from my home! I never kill insects I usually just put them in a container and put them outside 😊

      It’s a great show- let me know how you like it!

  3. Wow, Pooja, I hope you and your sister are fine after the insect scare. Do you have insect spray at home? You can just spray it and get rid of it. I guess the weather is getting cold and the insects are doing all they can to crawl to a warmer place. For that show you are talking about, I wonder if the dialog is any good. Well it doesn’t have to be as good as Seinfeld, but still I really enjoy a little spark once in a while. You certainly have piqued my interest in the show.

    1. I don’t have bug spray but I caught it in a container and threw it out. Apparently it’s not a harmful insect just scary looking. We’re both find- just a little traumatised lol.
      The show has really good dialogue- it’s very clever and cynical and sarcastic like Seinfeld so I think you will enjoy it.

  4. I’m watching this show and I LOVE it! 😂 I don’t know anyone else who is watching it so you’re the first one for me.

    I think I’m a bigger fan of Selena the actress that Selena the music artist. However, they can both exist. 😂

    Such a good show and I think the casting was perfect.

    1. I’m watching, too! 🙂 (I’ve seen the first six episodes and look forward to watching the latest one this evening.) I’ve been scouring my Reader to find another fan, and I’m so happy to have come across this post. 🙂

      I agree about Selena Gomez. At first, I was hesitant about her being in the mix (as, on first impression, it seemed to be a desperate attempt at “relevance”) – but the combo REALLY works. She fits in so well – and she’s making me love Mabel – so I guess I’m a fan of her acting, too. 🙂

      In regard to theories (which I am always down to discuss!), I shared mine in detail in my own comment below.

      So, you are definitely not the only one who’s into this show. 🙂 I’m glad to have finally found some fellow fans!

  5. I’ve been scouring my Reader to find someone else who’s following Only Murders, and I’m so happy to have stumbled across your post. 🙂

    I’m really enjoying the show – almost to the point of obsession. 🙂 (I’ve seen the first six episodes, and I’m looking forward to watching the latest one this evening.) I love a good mystery, and I appreciate that this is such a well-rounded mix of so much more. I’m into the “classic with a modern twist” style and puzzle-piece storytelling – plus its dreamy “fancy New York in the fall” aesthetic.

    As for theories (which I’m always down to discuss!), Theo is one of my top suspects – either on his own or along with Teddy. I’d also like to work in Cinda and her look-alike assistants somehow, as I feel something is off there. According to IMDb, one of the assistants (whose character’s name is Poppy White) will at least be back in the final episode – and the other one (Cindy – who interrupts Cinda to let her know her call is in) is actually played by Steve Martin’s wife, Anne Stringfield! 😀 (She’s only listed as being in Episode 4 so far.)

    Right now, I think maybe Theo (and/or Teddy) did everything but actually kill Tim. Or they may have poisoned him as well, but Cinda (and/or Poppy) also shot him (which may explain why there’s a note on the laptop as well as paper drafts). The Cinda connection is admittedly far-fetched, as I assume neither she nor Poppy live in the building (although Cinda IS “parent friends” with Charles’ neighbor, Arnav) – but something just strikes me as off about her and her assistants. Same with Theo. Even if they are innocent, I feel they’ll be important in some way. 🙂

    That’s all I have as far as theories. What about you?

    Also, I’m a blogging newbie – having launched my blog, The Classic Film Connection, in July. I’d love for you to check it out! https://classicfilmconnection.wordpress.com

    Thanks – and I hope you’re free from Satan’s insect pet! 😉

    1. Omg yay a fellow Only Murders fan!

      I am absolutely obsessed with the show as well and I watch it as soon as a new episode comes out. I am not going to say much about Theo and Teddy right now in case someone is reading the comments and hasn’t seen the latest epIsode but OMG! The latest episode was crazy but it did confirm some of the things I suspected.

      Cinda is most definitely a suspect in my opinion. I have a strong feeling she is personally involved in both murders somehow. I also have a weird feeling about Jan. I don’t know why but she just seems a little off to me but maybe that’s just my paranoia lol.

      I’ll definitely check out your link and yes I am earwig free for now lol!

      1. Oh, yes – I was late to the party initially, but I watch week-to-week now, too! 🙂

        Episode 7 was WOW. 😀 I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like it! So creative and original. And tying in the song from Carousel made me tear up. I’m not sure I ever would’ve connected Teddy with Billy Bigelow, but there are definite similarities there – and Nathan Lane totally sold it. He is really killin’ it – like the rest of this fantastic cast. ❤ In fact, maybe I’m drawing too many parallels to Carousel, but I’ve thought about it enough that I’m officially still keeping an eye on Teddy (even though that was not my original thought after this episode). **Also, how far does Teddy’s reach extend?** To how much is he connected? Could he be the reason Tim’s evidence wasn’t processed?

        Also, thinking of a “parents and children” theme is making me pay more attention to Oscar’s father, which I wasn’t doing previously…We don’t know what floor he lives on. (I’ve always assumed the first, but we don’t know that for sure.) And, as the super, wouldn’t he have easy access to poison – for killing vermin and things?

        But I haven’t let Cinda go either. You’re the only other person I’ve come across who’s suspicious of her, too! She definitely set off some sort of red flag warning in me. And she’s someone they wouldn’t suspect, because she’s separate from the building and they love her so much. **Far-fetched thought: Did Teddy “acquire” Cinda?**

        Or maybe the guilty party is Poppy (with a name like that, she could be more dangerous than she appears). Of course, maybe she’s in the last episode (according to IMDb) because Cinda is out of the way, the Only Murders podcast is doing well, and she wants to be their assistant instead! 🙂

        I didn’t suspect Jan at first, but she did strike me as INTENSE on their date. At the time, I thought it was because I, like Charles, tend to be quieter and slower to share. But since then, I’ve heard and read comments by other people who found her off-putting. Maybe the idea is her intensity is what Charles needs to push him to open up – or maybe it means there’s more to her? You’re certainly not the only one who suspects her – and you may not be paranoid at all!

        I think I will only officially suspect her if the show continues to keep her separate from the case. She needs to pull an Oscar, get caught up, and jump in to help the team. She has a perfect opportunity to do so now – but if the show doesn’t go that route, I’ll find it (and her) suspicious.

        I’m glad you’re earwig free 🙂 – and I’m looking forward to Tuesday! 🙂
