‘Only Murders In The Building’ Is A Reminder Relationships Won’t Make You Happy

Only Murders In The Building is the hit new show about three strangers obsessed with true crime. They grow closer as they investigate a murder in their apartment building and start a podcast about their journey. If the premise isn’t enough to pull you in, it stars three powerhouses: Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez. Episodes are released weekly on Hulu, but the first season recently came to an explosive close, so you can binge-watch to your heart’s content.

This show has everything – mystery, comedy, and yes, romance. However, none of the romantic relationships are at the center of the story. Love isn’t the reason viewers are tuning in each week. The mystery will keep fans coming back for more, but so will the characters. They’re messy and flawed, but their heart is always in the right place. Their passion (and their unwitting mistakes) are relatable to anyone trying to find their way in this world.

Even though these characters have wildly different histories, they all start out lost and lonely and looking for a purpose. When they find each other, they’re able to talk freely about their passions, without worrying about being judged. They’re able to bounce ideas off of each other, no matter how unreasonable they sound. More importantly, they’re able to create a common goal and work together as a team.

Only Murders In The Building is a reminder of how important it is to be a part of your community, at least in a small way. You don’t need a romantic relationship in order to be happy. You don’t need a million people following your Instagram or listening to your Podcast. You don’t even need everyone in your apartment building to like you. But you do need a support system. You need a few trustworthy people in your corner who are going to be there for you, no matter what life throws your way. Your connections are what will keep you going. If you get into a relationship along the way, that’s great – but don’t discount the friends who have never left your side.

Even though the constant twists and turns have made this show a hit, the best part of Only Murders In The Building is the chemistry between the characters. They don’t always see eye-to-eye. They don’t always get along. But they have built an unbreakable bond with one another over a short period of time. Once, they were strangers in an elevator, and now, they would do anything to protect each other.

If you haven’t found your new best friends yet, that’s okay, because shows like this help build bonds. There are murder boards across the internet where fans post clues and put together theories. Trying to solve the mystery along with the characters has helped form a brand-new community. Remember, you can connect over anything, whether it’s a murder in your building or a show you can’t stop gushing about.
