First Trailer for 'Trial & Error' - New NBC Mockumentary staring John Lithgow - [02:06]

This looks funny, but I'm not sure how a series can be built around it. Seems like it would make for a good comedy movie.

Jk, just watched it. I liked the pilot. The show seems really silly. I'll continue to watch.

We've watched 3 of them now. It is very dumb, but it makes me laugh a lot.

More people should check this out. If you liked The Office or Parks/Rec you should watch this. I think the show reminds me more of Parks and Rec because the entire town is full of incompetent people, just like Pawnee.

I think the final 13th episode just aired. I hope they wrap up Lithgow's case entirely.

I forgot to say we finished this a couple weeks ago. I liked the ending. The whole show was very cute and silly.

Wilkins, did you watch anymore of them?

I finished it. The show was a nice and fresh comedy. John Lithgow is basically Tandy, but less annoying. The girl with the 2000 diseases is also almost always hilarious. And the sexual tension between the prosecutor and the main character (Is he like...Luke Wilson's brother sorta? They look like the same person) is hilarious.

But not Owen Wilson's brother?

Nicholas D'Agosto was born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska. He is the son of Alan and Deanna D'Agosto, and the middle of five children (two older brothers, two younger sisters).

I liked Parks and Rec and saw that this show seemed to be reviewed pretty well, but over the four episodes I watched it hardly got a single laugh out of me. It think it's because for me it leaned too heavily on the characters being total weirdos for humor vs. being clever with characters that have exaggerated qualities.

Not as good as I remember it, but still had a few laughs. Not sure how Kristen Chenowith is 50 and looks like that, but kudos to her.
