About the show
The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret is an American-British sitcom starring David Cross, Sharon Horgan, Blake Harrison, Will Arnett, and Spike Jonze. The series is produced by IFC and RDF Television and premiered on October 1, 2010 on IFC. The show comprises two seasons, totaling 12 episodes, broadcast in 2010 and 2012.
The series follows an American, Todd Margaret, who takes a job running the London sales team for the energy drink Thunder Muscle. He has no experience with British culture, knows nothing about sales, and has only one employee, Dave.
Each episode begins with a scene of Margaret appearing in dire circumstances - in season one, he is a defendant in a British court, with a long list of charges against him being read; in season two, he is in what appears to be a North Korean nuclear missile base, being forced to press a launch button - then flashes back to portray the events leading to his sad fate.
