Jul 1, 2022
One of the true delights in Season 2 is a flashback arc focusing on events from last season as filtered through Bunny’s point of view.

If you missed this show more for sentimental reasons as opposed to the sleuthing... oh baby, does it feel wonderful.

The brilliance of this show is that you want to solve the mystery as if it were a thriller, but you get all the pleasure of it being a comedy, too.

It's every bit as breezy and fun, with lots of winking references to "Season 2" (the podcast, naturally, but you get the idea).

A fond and fun homage to screwball comedies.

Continues to be a great, sharply written, perfectly executed comedy.
Jun 28, 2022
This new run plays to this show’s many strengths, principally the sharp and multilayered writing from a large scriptwriting team and nicely modulated performances that allow for speedy tone switches when things threaten to get syrupy.

Each of our detectives is a puzzle missing a piece — a lover, a child, a friend — and as the season expands, so does its human scope.

"Only Murders" successfully avoids a sophomore slump.

By combining new characters with old and treating them all with the same mixture of understanding, humor, and doubt, Only Murders in the Building continues its special ways of suspense.
Jun 27, 2022
With its rococo details of life in a New York doorman-building overlaying careful and meticulous construction, the Hulu whodunit comedy is as strong as ever in its second outing.

The series largely continues to do well what it always has, balancing levity and warmth with hints of sadness.

Needless to say, "Only Murders" remains catnip for fans of Martin and Short, and a rare kind of cross-generational connection. It’s marvellous.

Season 2 is here to feed those hungry Hulu subscribers. It should do just that, even if the second course is a bit messier than the first.

It’s still tremendously entertaining and likable, and in some ways even better than the first in how it digs deep into characters who could so easily be cartoons. But the comedy feels a bit softer, or perhaps just more familiar.

The rapport among all three lead actors is better than ever this time around, and even more comfortable; they are always at their best when they are together.
