Lithgow, who delightfully chewed up the set of Third Rock from the Sun, and Tambor, who was acutely funny in The Larry Sanders Show and Arrested Development, seem less defeated by this lame show than imprisoned by it.
Both Lithgow and Tambor are engaging fellows, but not much chemistry on display here. The only thing in common is their ages, and the show resembles a throwaway sitcom that might have aired decades ago.
The jokes in "Twenty" are both predictable and telegraphed. Lithgow tries to turn this sap into Shakespeare and nearly gets a hernia in the process -- painful viewing, indeed. This is one "Odd Couple" not worth meeting.
