A crime takes place in a building. The strange event and a common taste unite a trio of residents, two elderly people and a young woman, for a single objective: to assume the role of independent detectives. Of course, the first case is the crime that happens there. Sounds like a really heavy thriller? Make a mistake! This funny story is told in the series “Only Murders in the Building“, a mystery-filled comedy currently airing on Star Plus.
The three protagonists, Charles, Oliver and Mabel, are played by the actors. Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez. The first season is very short, that is, it is an easy series to consume, and can be watched even at lunchtime. “I didn’t give anything for her and she won me over”, confesses Mikannn.
To talk about this plot, the Cena Aberta podcast delves into the series and lists some of the reasons they make “Only Murders in the Building” be a great option for those who want to have fun.

PH: “What I think is coolest is the scene of them coming together for a common goal, and meeting as a mini fandom. It made me reflect on the communities we’ve created. The first thing that caught me in the series is this kind of forced junction. But when we live in this world of pop culture, we see that it’s zero forced, it’s an almost indomitable will.”
PH: “It’s a very short series, really short. I think it could go a little further, it could have 50-minute episodes. But since she seems to be in such a hurry, some things that seem forced actually aren’t.”

Mikannn: “Their dynamics are incredible. It’s a couple that isn’t exactly a couple. I feel like they have this kind of partnership, this dynamic that keeps picking on each other, but there’s an affection. amusing horrors in the series.”
Max: “In real life, they’ve been friends for a long time, they’ve done a lot of movies together and toured stand up. One of the things for me when I finished watching the first season was, ‘Oh my God, Steve Martin is amazing! But I think how he manages to shine from the dynamic with Martin Short. They shine a lot! The relationship is incredible, even because of the difference between the characters and their personalities.”

Mikannn: “I’ve always been kind of hater from Steve Martin for no reason. I do not know why. I never had any reason to. Every time I’ve seen him acting, I’ve always found him to be half face and mouth. I’ve never seen him in a subtle mood. But in this series, even in contrast to Martin Short’s character, Steve’s is completely shy and restrained. And for me, that’s where he shines. He managed to win me over.”
