Trial & Error: Lady, Killer - Rotten Tomatoes

Trial & Error: Lady, Killer (2018)




Critic Consensus: As a quirky courtroom satire Trial & Error continues to delight, but its best motion may be allowing the singular Kristin Chenoweth to shine in all of her whimsically manic glory as the titular Lady, Killer.


Tv Season Info

In the spirit of true crime documentaries, the second season of this outrageous fish-out-of-water comedy centers on bright-eyed New York lawyer Josh Segal (Nicholas D'Agosto), still relatively a newcomer in a tiny southern town, who is sturdily posed for his next big case there. His mission? To defend the eccentric first lady of East Peck, Lavinia Peck-Foster (Kristin Chenoweth), known for her flamboyant outfits, large hats and hairless cat, and who suddenly finds herself accused of the bizarre murder of her beloved husband. As Josh continues to settle into his makeshift office behind a taxidermy shop while working with his quirky team of local misfits, he suspects that winning his second big case this time should be easy (especially when his client is the town favorite), but is it?

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (6)

Unhinged at times, oddly thoughtful at others, Trial and Error is more than parody; it's a welcome wave of silliness.

That Trial & Error has managed to fly so under the radar seems like a bigger crime than the one being investigated on screen.

The result is another layer of whimsical nonsense added to the already delightful implausibility of the season's primary storyline.

The first five episodes screened were full of sharp and fun comedy, easily making the case for why Trial & Error should be added to your must-watch roster. Like Josh, you'll fall in love with East Peck enough to stick around.

Honestly, what more could you want in a show? If you didn't see the first season, it doesn't matter. The second season is a self-contained joy. A blissful and much needed escape. Tell all your brother cousins to watch.

It shows us that Lavinia Peck-Foster is a force to be reckoned with.
