Anything created, written, and starring David Cross can't be all bad, and that is definitely the case with THE INCREASINGLY POOR DECISIONS OF TODD MARGARET. There are genuinely funny moments within each episode. Unfortunately, these moments are surrounded by ridiculous situations and disgusting gags.

David Cross plays a self-involved naif that many will recognize as a close cousin to Tobias Funke, his character on Arrested Development. While Tobias was amusing, Todd is often simply exasperating. Many times, co-star Will Arnett steals the scene in this series. While this isn't David Cross's best work, those who love Cross and can stomach scenes involving fecal matter, smoking pregnant women, and other low-hanging comedic fruit may just have a new favorite series.
