Editorial Reviews

Created, written by, and starring David Cross (Arrested Development, Mr. Show), THE INCREASINGLY POOR DECISIONS OF TODD MARGARET follows the awkward misadventures of an American office temp and convenient liar named Todd Margaret (David Cross).  Margaret bluffs his way into a senior sales position heading up the London office for the new energy drink Thunder Muscle. 
 
Cross' out-of-control farce reaches epic proportions when his character's gaffes and misfortunes wreak havoc on the city of London. His antics are often fueled by Dave, played by Blake Harrison (The Inbetweeners), his mysteriously devious and sometimes useless assistant.  Complicating matters is Todd's misplaced attempts to win the affection of Alice, played by Sharon Horgan (Pulling), his uninterested UK love interest. The series also features guest stars Will Arnett (Up All Night, Arrested Development, Running Wilde) as Todd's hard-ass, foul-mouthed boss, and Amber Tamblyn (Joan of Arcadia, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants) as Todd's American "girlfriend." Janeane Garofalo(24, Reality Bites) and Russ Tamblyn (West Side Story, Peyton Place) make special appearances.

As a huge fan of David Cross and Will Arnett, there really wasn't much option in me checking out "The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret" when it aired on the IFC network. Why not? They are two of my favorite comic actors (Cross shares a writing credit here). These six episodes can be loud, chaotic, and hysterical. I suspect that many people will love the crazy antics and just as many will be put off by the slapstick shenanigans. In short, this is not necessarily a show that will appeal to all--but those that really embrace it will think that it is terrific. For my taste, the program is not wholly successful but it boasts a tremendously entertaining premise and fully committed performances. Largely opting for buffoonery as opposed to cleverness, the show walks a fine line in its madcap mania. There are times I wished it would have pulled back slightly to make the character foibles (which are gruesomely awkward) more relatable, but mostly I went with this world where every action is performed in hyper-drive and every failure magnified as if on stage.

Cross plays the titular Todd Margaret, a compulsive liar with uncommonly good luck and terribly bad judgement. Margaret is promoted from his position as an American office drone to take over as a sales executive in London promoting a dubious new energy drink called Thunder Muscle. Set as a series of comic misadventures, the program follows Margaret as his inexperience, bluster, and untruthfulness take situations that start badly and make them progressively worse. It is painfully awkward and unpleasant as you see that every move Margaret makes further entrenches him even deeper into a waking nightmare. That said, there is quite a bit of pleasure to be derived from his downfall.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious! September 30, 2010
David Cross is awesome as the not-nearly-as-clever-as-he-thinks-he-is, fish-out-of-water Todd Margaret. I'm happy to See Cross and Will Arnett working together again, and even more happy to see that the show is really funny! I can't wait to see the rest of it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must see. October 8, 2010
By Ando
I haven't laughed this hard at a television show in a long time. David Cross is fantastic, and Will Arnett is great as always. Contrary to some reviews, you needn't be a fan of the actors past collaborations to enjoy this program.

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh September 20, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I'm a fan of Mr. Show, and this was recommended by some friends who like Mr. Show, so I figured I would give it a try. I just wasn't very impressed. For me, it's just not fun to watch a bunch of unsympathetic characters doing terrible things that end up hurting other people. There was a meanness to the sense of humor in this show, and that's just not my thing. After a while, I was watching in hopes that a mob of angry Brits would eventually beat Todd Margaret, Brent Wilts, and Dave to death. Alas, that is not how the series ends. There were 3 things that cracked me up though: the jabs at molecular gastronomy, Janeane Garofalo's brilliant cameo, and Jon Hamm. Other than that, the show was just... meh.
