The latest episode of Hulu mystery series, Only Murders in the Building, has pulled off an almost completely dialogue-free episode: find out how.
The latest episode of the hit Hulu series Only Murders in the Building will be almost completely dialogue-free, prompting fans to wonder how such a feat was pulled off. Since kicking off at the tail-end of August, the series – which stars comedy legends, Martin Short and Steve Martin, alongside musician-turned-actor Selena Gomez, has proved to be an engaging whodunnit that incorporates the popularity of true crime podcasts.
Set in a prestigious New York City apartment complex, the lives of former Broadway director, Oliver Putnam (Short), former 1980s TV star, Charles Haden-Savage (Martin), and Mabel Mora – a young woman who claims to be renovating her aunt’s apartment – unexpectedly connect after resident Tim Kono dies. A big part of the program’s appeal is the inclusion of Short and Martin, who have a lengthy history as comedic icons. Fans of the duo have instantly been drawn to the series, which reached the status of most-watched Hulu comedy premier ever and was recently renewed for a second season. But aside from its star power, Only Murders in the Building is genuinely engaging, and the mystery of who killed Kono and why, continues to grow with each subsequent episode.
