Well, David Cross Made a Weird Follow-Up to 'Todd Margaret'

Posted By on Mon, Jan 18, 2016 at 2:27 PM


Okay, so I'm a little late to the party on this one. Then again, I wouldn't have found out about this at all if I hadn't been on David Cross' IMDB... so maybe the rest of the internet just forgot to throw a party?

If you don't know: The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret was a silly 2009 show, which you should absolutely watch if you're into David Cross and Will Arnett being ridiculous together (of course you are). It's got everything: overfed cats, North Korea, suggestively named energy drinks. You'll love it. 

Todd Margaret is the new-ish, under-promoted "third season" of the show. It kicks off with (spoiler) David Cross' titular character waking up from the "dream" of seasons one and two. The sassier, harrier, more successful Margaret goes on to revisit jokes and basic plot from the original series. 

Why watch the new season if it's just the old series + wig? I was asking myself that during the few episodes, but the series pulls through—and it's only six episodes, so its not much of a time-suck if you wind up disappointed. If you're a fan of what you've seen of Margaret give it a go... but not before lowering the standards.
