A well made gentle series, Steve Martin does all the heavy lifting acting wise, Selena Gomez provides a bit of 'young' input and Martin Short some moments of silliness.

The plot is a bit jumbled, but that is intentional to create a bit of mystery, it also has a slightly cartoon feel in the costuming and art direction.

It's not gripping or tense more curious and fun, some of the critiques and scores here are over the top, it's good but not that good. Also the short episodes are annoying, 35 minutes minus the intro and titles is too quick, best to let 2 or 3 episodes build up and then watch the 2 or 3 at one time.

A great cast. Lighthearted and funny. Just what we all need...during the horrible times we all have faced in the last year and a half. Nothing dark to drag you down here.

Good writing fantastic casting and a brilliant story . I'm hooked .

Seeing the dynamic between the trio is really fun to watch! Selena performing along side comedic legends must have been intimidating but she holding her own and performing spectacularly. She's a great actress and on her way to potentially join the legends in the future. Look forward to seeing the rest of the series and more from Selena Gomez in the future! The soundtrack is beautifully scored. Well done Siddhartha Khosla!

Definitely one of the best released shows by HULU and in my opinion one of the best this year!

A MUST WATCH!

Watched the show tonight, its funny, witty and the mistery is actually very enjoyable and gets your attention sincs the beginning.

The acting trio is really charismatic and has good chemistry. I thought it was going to be a Steve Martin/Martin Short thing but i was very surprisded with Selena Gomez. Her oerformance was great and you really get drawn to her performance and scenes. Maybe this will open opportunities for hwr in the acting industry, she deff has some chops!

I'm a long time fan of Steve Martin and Martin Short so I had to check out this series. Their past collaborations are electric. Im not aware of Selena Gomez's work but I know WHO she is.

After reading other reviews, it's fairly obvious there are many Selena fans who wanted to voice their overwhelming approval of her performance to pad the rating. Those "reviews" stand out because they are not really reviews, just kudos because they are ardent fans. Tell us WHY you liked it!!!! I'm sure many who stated such and also stating their admiration for the other leads' past work was a token. I can't imagine the fandom realistically includes legendary septuagenarian comedic movie and stage actors and a Disney popstar. If I had a dollar for everytime I read the word "amazing", I could produce the show.

I digress - this show, after 3 episodes is fabulous!! I hate most TV shows created in recent years. Comedies are formulaic, recycled crap. Drama is redundant and stale. I give some with an interesting premise a chance - 99.9% fail. The ONLY network shows I like now are NCIS, the original, and Young Sheldon. Streaming: Stranger Things and Alien TV. Yes, I'm odd that way. Castle Rock was cancelled, so.... I love quirky original concepts like 3rd Rock from the Sun, Big Bang Theory, the aforementioned Stranger Things and Alien TV ,etc. This show has it all. It's hilarious, dramatic, thrilling, mysterious, eclectic, thatrical and insane all at the same time. It's a definite rollercoaster ride of emotions. If you didn't bust a rib with the cats "arrival" on scene then you are dead inside.

Steve Martin is his usual sardonic self and teaming him with Martin Short's over-the-top theatrics - their sarcastic banter is always entertaining, add to that Selena Gomez's deadpan snarky often dismissive repartee with them is priceless!! They have fantastic chemistry for their 3 very distinct personality types. I'm quite impressed at her ability to hold her own with these two and it was so refreshing to hear a young woman have a lower register voice for once and NOT hearing "super" this and that constantly. C'mon people, there are other synonyms for that word. It makes you sound silly and unintelligent.

The storyline kept my attention and I love how they cut to each characters unique perspective in interpreting the clues they have; Short "auditioning" the tenants and Selena's visions/delusions. They throw in backstories with flashbacks and ambiguous habits to build the character profiles.

Finally, the supporting cast - masterful casting in my opinion. The tenants are the kookiest group of people you could ever imagine and they all live in the same building!!! Nathan Lane AND Sting as well!! Great!!

I was sad when episode 3 ended, I now have to wait until next week but it's worth it. You never know what will happen scene to scene or for that matter, what may come out of their mouth.

So yes, millennials and Gen Z...Selena was AMAZING!!!! So are the rest.

This show is so refreshing, the casting is so good. It has the right mix of comedy and mystery. Selena, Steve Martin, and Martin Short are the trio we never knew we needed to see on screen. 100% recommend this to everyone.

I'm thinking all the ten star reviews are from either Selena fans or people related to the show. It's not horrible but it's definitely not great either.

Steve Martin and Martin Short are legends and they are doing all the heavy lifting in this. Selena Gomez isn't horrible but for some reason her voice stays in the same monotone pitch the whole time and it's not only annoying but also distracting. It's like she's trying too hard to be chill that it seems like she's high throughout her entire performance.

I'll continue watching it in the hopes that it improves.

I don't think I've ever written a review for imdb. I watch just about everything and can usually find the good in any show or movie. But these 10 star reviews are obviously false and it's upsetting because I use IMDb reviews and ratings to pick new things to watch. This show is only okay. I find the characters rather awkward and uncomfortable with each other. The story isn't that intriguing. I hope IMDb can fix these ratings.

Really fun. The best trio ever. Mabel mora is my fav character ever . Highly recommended.

lmarqua-84937 5 September 2021

Great story and the men are great. When Selena Gomez opens her mouth Im taken out of the story she is really on the surface and sounds like Kermit the frog. Is that her usual voice? Soo weird.

msmramsr 31 August 2021

One thing I love about this series is the characters. When the trio are always together, they create chemistry. I have to commend Selena's brilliant performance here. I thought that choosing Selena Gomez as a co-lead actress with the comedy legends, will not work very well. However, I underestimated this woman and turns out she's doing what I want her to do. Never expected to love this show at first, but I'm saying it right now - watching this show is a must. It is definitely one of the best shows released by HULU and one of the best TV shows of this year!
