Even with the overwhelming wealth of TV shows premiering every week, it’s rare to find one as fully formed as Only Murders in the Building.

Hulu’s comedic murder mystery/true-crime podcast spoof arrived with a clear identity from minute one: a well-established comedy duo in stars Steve Martin and Martin Short; a surprising and fun third wheel with the addition of Selena Gomez; art direction inspired by The New Yorker magazine covers brought to life with a playful score by composer Siddhartha Khosla; and a target for its loving satire in true-crime podcasts and the people who listen to them.

But most formidable is its skill in conjuring a whole world out of a single building, and how pleasant it is to inhabit that world for 30 minutes at a time.

Only Murders in the Building is set in the Arconia, an apartment building in Manhattan’s wealthy Upper West Side neighborhood.
