Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret: Season One DVD Review



Synopsis: 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.

Review:There are a lot of comedy shows out there, but none so off the wall as Todd Margaret!  This one has a few comedic powerhouses together for a manic, uncomfortable and bizarre six episode series.    This one starts out a little slow, but stick with it, there is a huge payoff with this underground cult show.  It aired on IFC, 'nuff said.  If you like unconventional laughs, you'll be all over this one.

Interest Range: TV Show, Comedy
