当三个邻居崩溃犯罪现场仅几分钟后,这是首次发现,它并没有更长的时间采取警察意识到发生了什么事情他们。正如查尔斯(史蒂夫·马丁),奥利弗(马丁短暂)和mabel(瑟琳娜•戈梅斯)几乎包含了病态的热情,疲惫官(达文·乔伊·兰道夫)翻了个白眼。“好吧,”她叹了口气,“何娘谋杀播客,你都在听什么?”

她没有错(和兰多夫的手,她不是警察老生常谈,她可以一直,要么)。不太可能仅三人合在他们互爱的“串行” -esque一系列当天晚上,因为他们等待他们的上西区的公寓大楼的火灾报警酒和野生理论。但他们不打算承认在这一刻,它拥有让他们从真正的犯罪球迷业余侦探等级上升的可能性。

他们随后的冒险,交替怪僻和深情,构成了大量的“只在大楼里谋杀,”葫芦即将推出的一系列结婚马丁和短的喜剧更阴险的谋杀之谜节拍。This sometimes results in flat parody of the grisly and often exploitative true crime series that inspired it, especially when Tina Fey pops up as the acerbic host of their favorite show (“All’s Not OK in Oklahoma”), a character who feels ripped from the bizarro New York of “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” rather than this one. Otherwise, “Only Murders” is at its best when it’s not mimicking a genre so much finding a sweet spot of its own where it can be funny, strange, and sympathetic all at once.

由马丁和约翰·霍夫曼在共同创造,“只有谋杀案”美食在众多的(而预测的)曲折,但moreso其三根引线之间的化学反应。That Martin and Short immediately click into a partnership that’s as amiable as it is prickly should be no surprise to anyone who’s experienced them as a pair in the “Father of the Bride” movies, in which they play similar roles opposite each other (i.e. Martin as the outwardly grounded voice of reason who quickly spirals out of control and Short as the already histrionic wild card). Gomez, whose character has more ties to the mystery than meet the eye, gets the more obviously weighty material at the series’ start, and does her best to make the most of Mabel’s scattered exposition. But she, too, shines brightest when playing detective alongside Short and, especially, Martin. Oliver has his melancholic moments, but Mabel and Charles’ friendship becomes richer as their equal skepticism of being vulnerable blossoming into a shared experience of learning to trust each other, anyway.

人民,“只有谋杀案”中设置的复杂性是什么最终使演出这样的乐趣潜入,等易马拉松,而不一定打算。(我看了所有的八个集我有同样的晚上,我开始了,一时心急,以获得最后两个 - 这,我承认是一个豪华的问题,有鉴于前三个首映会8月31日在Hulu之前发作每周下降。) The cast of Upper West Side characters feels both familiar and specific, including deli kingpin Teddy (a perfectly calibrated Nathan Lane), his watchful son Theo (James Caverly), and resident oddballs like furious cat owner Howard (the reliably funny Michael Cyril Creighton) and a perpetually cranky neighbor played with acidic precision by Jackie Hoffman.

在Arconia的每间公寓 - 建设中,查尔斯,梅布尔和奥利弗所有活 - 是它自己的生态系统,其生产生活的一英寸之内,旨在传达谁住的人的故事,或居住,在那里。参观查尔斯在他的经济平介绍了一种不同的氛围比看奥利弗,其固有的戏剧性波及到他华丽的套房。当查尔斯让他的警惕与股票的晚上二重奏与一个有趣的巴松管(艾米·瑞恩)谁一路之隔,它们共享微笑眼神接触围绕内部庭院,还需要什么对话,唱一个真正可爱的场景他们的音乐相呼应的生活。

在结构上,“只有谋杀案”是受惠于真正的犯罪故事的一般弧即使它试图解决和拆除其比喻。(在一个值得纪念的时刻,美宝有提醒她激动的同胞,他们是,事实上,调查实际的人的谋杀。)该系列产品是最有趣的,当它表明愿意采取这种格式之外的几个风险的好处它的表演。发现凶手好像他铸造的音乐让短的铅奥利弗的幻想去,因为他要大,而查尔斯身后看着他的肩膀对惊心遗憾的幽灵过去让马丁更充分体现了他的性格苦乐参半。集中在西奥,谁是聋子,一个最新情节的展开几乎完全没有声音,一有机会Caverly和巷一样,马丁和超短期表现的演员抓住智能效果。

所以,即使“只有谋杀案”并没有完全击中其商标或打开一扇门,露出你可能已经预期到底是什么,它往往是速度不够快试试别的,效果要好得多。像它的兴奋的新侦探,展现的是聪明,轻轻怪异足以留下深刻的印象。

“在建筑只有谋杀案”首映8月31日在Hulu。
