Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.
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. Along the way 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 are 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 (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) also make special appearances.

How Funny is Todd Margaret (David Cross)?
I started watching this show based on other shows that I've seen David Cross in, and I wasn't disappointed. Within 10 minutes I was hooked, and after 15 minutes, I was calling and emailing friends. It was a short first season, and I hope for more episodes next season.
David Cross and Will Arnett
Have I liked everything that either David Cross or Will Arnett have done, well I can't say I have, but it doesn't mean that I have any doubts in their potential. They are both unique and can absolutely be hilarious, Arrested Development showed that. I am sure Arrested Development is quite relevant to the nature and the acting on the show, but I wouldn't turn your back on this show if Arrested Development didn't appeal to you. Arrested Development's plot from episode to episode was far to intertwined to be a casual viewer, and I am only mentioning this because I feel this show will display that too. So listen up for vague references to jokes in other episodes, it adds everything to a view experience.
Glad to see some good quality humor on tv
This was a good start to a funny show. Think something like how the original "The Office" was. Thank you David Cross and thanks to the entire staff working for the better of this funny show. Now if only IFC would allow me to rent this show, I would.
