    Those three first episodes were nice! I know it’s an unpopular opinion but Martin Short’s character was my least favorite part of the show. I love how great Steve Martin and Selena Gomez are together.

    I have decided that maybe their characters are related?

    These three first episode were FREAKING AMAZING!

    The main cast is EXCELLENT, all are equally strong, but Martin Short had the best single performance so far in the 3rd installment.

    The mystery is intriguing and I wish it was all released at once tbh, I’m so hooked! The last time I felt this excited for a new show was Girls5eva in May.

    The opening titles and theme are also deliciously charming and I love the whole atmosphere. The scenic design is impressive.

    Last, but not least, I loved how they adressed how these people can (or can’t) afford living in that building. Sex and the City and Friends were so unrealistic towards the financial life of Manhattan residents, so I’m glad these news show are learning.

    It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!

    Finished all 3 and loved it.
    Great “crossover” for Selena Gomez, who did show some real potencial, specially on episode 2.

    It’s Unpopular but i like Steve Martin more than Martin Short, but still all 3 are great and needed.

    FX/Hulu needs to give me a break with so many good comedies, between the very good Reservation Dogs, Only Murders and what will probably be very good Shadows, they are killing it.

    It's all about Ethan Hawke!

    Good call. I love how by addressing this with Short’s character they actually added depth to the character.

    I enjoy how self aware this show is – it grasps the generational divide it’s playing with

    Sex and the City and Friends were so unrealistic towards the financial life of Manhattan residents, so I’m glad these news show are learning.

    As someone who lives in Manhattan, this is always my biggest pet peeve about shows set in nyc. Sex and the City, in particular, was the worst with it. The fact that Carrie lived alone in a nice UES apartment but didn’t really have a solid, well paying job was ridiculous lol. It was rent controlled but she was still going out pretty much every night and she spent a shit ton of money on clothes/shoes. I actually remember one episode they finally mentioned what her bank account was looking like and I think she had like $500 in her checking and $800 in her savings. It was something wild like that – but yeah, not unrealistic for someone who lives in nyc! Friends was a culprit too but that show felt less about them being in the city and more about their lives as friends so I can look past it. However, there were stretches where Joey and Phoebe just straight up wouldn’t have been able to afford their apartment lol. Stuff like that gives me anxiety lol, I’m like address this please!

    I’ve seen the first episode and I absolutely loved it! It was a fun and somehow escapist at the same time? The three leads were uniformly strong although I will say that I preferred Martin and Gomez’s scenes to the ones with Short on his own. I felt like they had quite raw chemistry which was nice to see. It was also nice to see Gomez’s character depicted without any “gen Z stereotypes”.

    The crafts on this show are also so gorgeous. From the costumes to the way they’ve made the Manhattan landscape feel quite homely (which as someone who has only been to New York once, albeit when I was like 5, evoked quite an interesting feeling when I was watching the episode).

    FYC:

    "The Good Fight" and "The Other Two" in all categories.

    The first three episodes were absolutely amazing. This show has had so much promotion on TV this last week so hopefully it will get a lot of people to watch! Selena, Steve, and Martin will be on The Late Show with Steven Colbert on Sep 7th and Selena will be on Late Night with Seth Meyers on Sep 8th!

    Loved the first 3 episodes! Wish they’d released them all at once. All 3 of the leads impressed me, though I preferred Martin and Gomez to Short. Very keen to see where the mystery goes.

    Murder Mystery? I’m always in. With comedy elements? Even better. I’ve read so many great reviews about this show that I was a little anxious if I gonna love it as well. Glad to say – I did! The chemistry between the cast is undeniable. We’ve already known what the Martin’ duo is capable of, but I underestimated Selena. Look, I like her quite a lot, mostly her personality, but you know what I mean, don’t you? Great job, girl!
    I know it’s better for a show to be released weekly, however; I wish I was more patient. Hope the show is only going to get better&better and the wait will be worth it!

    Tonight’s episode was incredible! So glad that we got to see more of Tina Fey. I really liked that they have finally addressed that Selena’s character knew Tim so we don’t have to wait any longer for them to find out. I am assuming that Oscar was the one following Mabel at the end and he was wearing the sweater of the guy that we saw Mabel leaning over with blood at the beginning of the series so I’m very curious as to if she kills him or what plot twist may be coming because it seems as they are making it too obvious. Overall, it was another fantastic episode and I really see this show getting a lot of award show buzz, it still has 100% on Rotten Tomatoes!

    This show is so, so good. All three leads are great. Loved all the stuff with Tina Fey and Amy Ryan in this episode. I hope Amy gets more to do than just be Steve Martin’s love interest though. She deserves a weighty lead role like Linney’s in Ozark.

    Excellent. I love when they announce renewals within the first series run (or before). It helps buy in for the audience.
