The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret

The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret is a comedy of errors about a man who just can’t seem to make his life easier for himself by making all the wrong decisions.

American Todd Margaret (David Cross) is given an opportunity to work in London which is too good to refuse. This is the first of his poor decisions, along with the decision to lie about how his father has passed away and is actually from Leeds. Once he moves to London, he finds that the energy drink he is in charge of is actually considered unsanitary and that is only where the trouble for him begins. His only employee, Dave (Blake Harrison) has a secret agenda and Todd falls for waitress, Alice (Sharon Horgan), who doesn’t seem to feel the same way.

The best thing about The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret is that it shows the differences between American and British humour. It is often remarked upon how the two are extremely different and here is a comedy that contains both, and shows how the two just sometimes don’t quite get each other. So you pretty much get the best of both worlds here.

However, the type of comedy that surrounds David Cross’ Todd Margaret may not be to everyone’s liking. It is the type of comedy where the lead character just can’t seem to do anything right and it is just mistake after mistake. Some people will find it hilarious, some people will find it embarrassing and some people will just find it downright annoying. For the people who find it annoying, Todd Margaret is a case of “Really? Again?”

He is a character that you almost feel sorry for, but then he just proves that he really doesn’t want to help himself as he digs himself further into the hole.

It is unfair to say that the show isn’t funny, because it really is and it is also quite clever as each episode continues on from the next and they are all linked. There is even the little bit of a mystery that unravels throughout the series and it is intriguing enough to keep you watching till the end.

David Cross really is a very funny man. He carries the series well and as creator of the series, he knows his capabilities and who he is as a comedian. Will Arnett also provides some fantastic laughs as his boss.

The special features include:-

  • Extended version of Episode One

  • Q and A with the cast and crew

  • Bloopers

  • Deleted scenes

  • In Remembrance Of The Late David Cross

  • An Act of Todd

  • DVD extra extras

“In Remembrance Of The Late David Cross” causes some confusion at first as to whether David Cross has passed away without you knowing about it, but it’s just a tribute to Cross and his role on the show. It is actually where you appreciate him the most as you see how hard a worker he is. This featurette also has a hilarious mini-interview between Cross and Arnett. The bloopers are also generous with over 5 minutes of mishaps.

The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret may not be everyone’s cup of tea, and you may feel as though it goes a tad too far with some of the jokes. However, if you love a comedy of errors, then this may be for you.
