“Neurotics make very good sex partners.” 

ONLY MURDERS IN THE BUILDING was a true delight and joy to watch. There were so many double entendre to tickle the brain while the plot thickened with a bit of “Greek” news. 

The timing and pacing between Oliver (Martin Short), and Charles (Steve Martin), are off the chart. They could riff about any mundane topic and still keep their audiences in stitches with laughter. My favorite scene was the party card game throughout time. What an insight to Oliver. It was all very “telling.” 

I must point out the scene in the cafe with the ONLY MURDERS IN THE BUILDING fan club. Their honest assessment and comments had me laughing out loud.  I was forced to use the “pause” button before I could calmly continue. Oh, such “chutzpah.” 

I am totally obsessed with these characters. The writers know exactly when to slow the action down, surprise us with new/old “couplings,” and then wham…end with a big cliffhanger. I need to quote MIRANDA, “such fun!” I don’t want this season to ever end. 

ONLY MURDERS IN THE BUILDING is must-see tv streaming on HULU.
