    Starts August 31st.
    Three strangers share an obsession with true crime and suddenly find themselves wrapped up in one. When a grisly death occurs inside their exclusive Upper West Side apartment building, the trio suspects murder and employs their precise knowledge of true crime to investigate the truth. Perhaps even more explosive are the lies they tell one another. Soon, the endangered trio comes to realize a killer might be living among them as they race to decipher the mounting clues before it's too late.

    Anyone watched it yet?

    I liked it. It took a turn pretty quickly I wasn't expecting. It's quite mellow and nice too, like it's a gentle comedy, which I was worried it wouldn't be when I saw the cast.

    Wish there was more than 2 eps up though, especially when they're only 30ish minutes.

    I've always liked Selena Gomez. Not a huge fan of her music career but she was a rare Disney kid that actually seemed to understand comedy acting and not just ham it up.

    I've only watched the first 2 but she seems to be holding her own against the two veterans.

    Hard to get an idea of the tone of this show based on what I've read so far so I'll have to jump in and give the first two episodes a watch. I have heard good things though.

  • Registered Users Posts: 31,262 ✭✭✭✭gmisk

    I have only watched the first two episodes....but hugely enjoying it.

    You can tell Steve Martin and Martin short are close friends in real life they have a brilliant rapport, but Selena Gomez is a bit of a revelation I haven't seen her act in anything before. Looking forward to episode 3.

    Gives you real sense of New those apartments wowsers.

    The podcast is also so spot on!

    I love this show. First episode had me a bit worried, but it found it's feet in the next two episodes and had some very funny lines. Gorgeous looking show too: I love those old New York buildings. Martin Short has really settled into things too. I initially thought that he might be a bit OTT but now he's actually acting rather than just being Martin Short :) Sting as a potential murder suspect is a great addition too!

    Can we keep in mind that some of us are watching at Irish pace, meaning anyone watching at US pace is an episode ahead. Sting isn't a huge spoiler but who knows what might happen in later eps.

    Yeah, sorry about that. I was going to put in a spoiler but I couldn't figure out how to do it (still can't!). I'll be more careful.

  • Moderators, Arts Moderators Posts: 23,844 Mod ✭✭✭✭TICKLE_ME_ELMO

    No need no apologise. Your post just made me realise that it could be an issue at some point.

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,165 ✭✭✭artvanderlay

    Another cracker of an episode. The addition of Tina Fey's character makes things very interesting now.

  • Registered Users Posts: 31,262 ✭✭✭✭gmisk

    Just finished episode is such a fun watch...Nathan Lane.

    I would totally go to see Splash! The musical.

    Plus...don't stand so close to Sting....

  • Registered Users Posts: 81,999 ✭✭✭✭JP Liz V1

    It is quite enjoyable, good trio

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,993 ✭✭✭archfi

    Another thumbs up from me

    The issue is never the issue; the issue is always the revolution.

  • Moderators, Arts Moderators Posts: 23,844 Mod ✭✭✭✭TICKLE_ME_ELMO

    I thought at the start that I might like this but after this week I think I love it. There's something oddly comforting about it.

    Ep 4 - I thought Sting was going to be a one off throw away joke so I was surprised to see him again this week. His little song was great.

    Started this over the weekend because Steve Martin and Martin short you can hook to my veins. I knew who Selena Gomez was and that she was in TV as a kid and I wasn’t sure how she’d gel with the two lads but after two episodes she seems to be doing good. She doesn’t sound like I expected her to either.

    I'm 3 episodes in and I'm really enjoying it. Is Disney+ always going to be a week behind? It's not even that clear to me what day it gets released on Disney+ now since they moved away from Friday releases.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,685 ✭✭✭Bawnmore

    I'm enjoying this one also. For some reason I've gotten caught up watching 3 or 4 shows now with weekly releases, which is a bit annoying.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,945 ✭✭✭steve_r

    Really enjoying this. Reminds me a lot of "Bored to Death" from a few years ago.

  • Registered Users Posts: 9,312 ✭✭✭S.M.B.

    I liked Bored to Death but it's all very hazy. I can't believe it's 10 years since it's no longer airing.

    This show on the other hand I absolutely adore after 5 episodes. Really impressed with it on multiple levels. It's like the show I never really knew I wanted but is exactly what I needed right now,

    Watched the 5 episodes and I love it. Great cast with a great script. Martin and Short are brilliant.

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,225 ✭✭✭Zak Flaps

    I like a lot of early Steve Martin stuff but i didn't think the trailer for this was in any way funny. Not sure if I'll commit yet.

  • Registered Users Posts: 9,312 ✭✭✭S.M.B.

    Looks like it's added to Disney+ at 8.00am on Tuesdays. I now look forward to 8.00am each Tuesday so I can watch this before work. I'm proper hooked.

  • Registered Users Posts: 59,250 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson

    What a truly brilliant non spoken episode this week.

    The use of the soundtrack was amazing and that scrabble game :)

    Scrabblesexting rocks.

  • Registered Users Posts: 9,312 ✭✭✭S.M.B.

    That may not be a plot spoiler but I'd really love to have gone into what is "next week's episode" in my Disney+ world not knowing the above.

    Well it does say hulu in the thread title not Disney.

    The episode.

    Loved the whole way they did silent approach to episode and the scrabble gag was fantastic.

    I would where they will go now with that ending.
