Have You Watched Season 3 of “Only Murders in the Building”? (My Thoughts)

I’m so impressed that Only Murders in the Building continues to charm, beguile, and humor me season after season despite using the same premise: A murder happens in an apartment building in New York City, and an unlikely trio gets wrapped up in the mystery and eventually solves it.

If you haven’t watched the show at all, I’d highly recommend it. I’d recommend season 3 even more to anyone who already enjoys the show.

Even with the same core premise, season 3 felt fresh for a few big reasons:

  1. It has strong musical elements. Season 3 revolves around a Broadway production, and just like she does for Girls5Eva, the amazing Sarah Bareilles composed a series of legitimately catchy songs.
  2. It has an incredible cast. Beyond the core characters, both Paul Rudd and Meryl Streep join season 3 for significant roles (among other great actors).
  3. It has a touching central theme. I don’t want to spoil the central theme of the season, as it isn’t fully revealed until late in the season, it really struck home for me personally.

As usual, we tried to guess the murderer early in the season, and we failed. The show makes it pretty difficult to guess early on (everyone is a legitimate suspect), but there were a few early clues that we could have picked up a little better.

  1. From season 1, Martin Short: “As I said to Paula Abdul during our production of Hedda Gabler ‘we’ve got to start thinking outside the box here.'” Awesome. Then when they followed that up in Season 3 with a joke about Meryl Streep’s character starring in a production of “Hedda Gobbler” with animated turkeys, I almost fell out of my chair. – Tolles
