    It takes a tremendous amount of commitment and precision to make comedy this stupid work so brilliantly, and once again Trial & Error’s cast proves wonderfully capable.

    The premiere is the strongest by a wide margin--which isn’t to say that the season slides downhill so much as that premiere is fantastic. It’s hard not to miss Lithgow, but Chenoweth’s Lavinia is a melodramatic treat.

    Kristin Chenoweth is a diva-esque hoot. ... Slapstick antics and cliffhanger twists elevate the ridiculous tomfoolery. [9 - 22 Jul 2018, p.13]

    Ms. Chenoweth is a smart addition but the humor is often too broad and, worse, predictable. When the show’s humor offers a more surprising take, Trial & Error shines--the “East Peck Lady Laws of 1952” are particularly amusing--but that seems to happen with less frequency in season two.
