Critic Consensus: Trial & Error hilariously parodies the true-crime genre with consistent laughs, irreverently funny "stupid humor," and animated characters who populate the show's dependably entertaining narratives.

News & Interviews for Trial & Error: Season 1
If you like your comedy dark and twisted, Trial & Error could be just your cup of cyanide-laced coffee.
It's Lithgow, as the hopelessly self-centered, sneakily endearing suspect, who steals every scene he's in.
A featherweight entertainment with a good cast, some charm, and not nearly enough laughs.
Trial and Error is blunter in its punchlines, but still frequently charming, mostly thanks to Lithgow's daffy appeal and D'Agosto's genial frustration as the straight man in a room full of kooks.
In 3rd Rock From the Sun, Lithgow was an alien trying to get by. In Trial & Error, he's a human trying to get by. His brilliance gives Trial & Error a good chance of succeeding.
