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!

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.

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.

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.

This series is many things. It's pure unadulterated hilarity firsr and foremost, it's philosophicak and political. It's commentary on society. .

Todd may seem like a harmless buffoon yet as David Cross shows us, that is not as harmless as one might think. It's not without consequence to be ignorant.

This show isn't for the faint of hesrt or the easily offended. One the other hand it's perfevt for fans of the outrageous like "Fawlty Towers" and "Michael and Michael." I agree with another reviewer that it's not for everyone but if you like it you'll LOVE it.

I've seen these eps multiple times and still laugh every time. Season 1 may be a wee tinge better than season 2 but I give this 5 stars without reservation. If this isn't 5 stars then no comedy is.

Recommended for comedy nerds absolutely.
