Only Murders in the Building: Reasons It Is The Best Whodunit Series on OTT

Only Murders in the Building is a breath of fresh air among the other thrillers thriving in all their seriousness!

Only Murders in the Building has been receiving quite the amount of praise over its last two seasons. Both the seasons have dealt with two different forms of storytelling and narratives. However, the one thing that remains the same is the impeccable comic timing mixed with the edgy suspense that makes it a genius of a show. Only Murders in the Building feels almost like a parody of the classic whodunit without spoiling the genre for anyone. The show is funny, mysterious and definitely one of the best you have seen in a while. Here are a few reasons why Only Murders in the Building is the best whodunit series on OTT!

The Chemistry Between Martin Short And Steve Martin Is Amazing

Let’s state the obvious first. If you fail to find any other reason to watch Only Murders in the Building, the chemistry between Martin Short and Steve Martin will keep you hooked. It is almost impossible to realize if they are improvising on camera or if the script is that well written! Oscar and Martin explore a friendship that’s funny, beautiful, sweet and relatable at an age where people of their age are only expected to watch TV and “eat dips”. Their friendship with Mabel is an even beautiful one as two old aged people establish a fun and thrilling relationship with a twenty something old millennial!

The Show Offers You The Old School Charm Of A Mystery

Even though Only Murders in the Building comes across as a parody of the classic whodunit stories, the show brilliantly carries out the rise and drop action of teh genre. The suspense stays strong till the end of the last episode. The audience keeps guessing who the murderer could be until the end of the seasons. One way or the other, they can expect the joy of satisfaction at having the right guess or the surprise at the reveal of the killer!

Selena Gomez Is Brilliant In The Show

The one thing that can’t go unnoticed is how brilliant Selena Gomez is in her dry delivery of the dialogues that her character demands. Mabel is not a people pleaser or someone who smiles. She is direct, sarcastic, dry-witted and brilliant. Selena Gomez does justice to Mabel’s character in every way!
