On the surface, "The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret" (Fri., 10:30 p.m. EST on IFC) has been about the hapless idiot and pathalogical liar, Todd Margaret (David Cross). He gets a tremendous opportunity handed to him to oversee the sales of a new energy drink in the UK, but he's woefully underqualified. As it progressed in the first season, we learned that his boss, Brent (Will Arnett) is as hapless and overwhelmed and idiotic as he is.
In fact, the only character who's been having fun throughout has been Todd's assistant, Dave (Blake Harrison, "The Inbetweeners"). But there's been more than meets the eye with Dave, and in this season premiere we learned even more about him. Dave is important enough to escort Rihanna to the Grand Prix, important enough to cancel a Grand Prix, and rich enough to have a manservant, played by Jon Hamm.
So what is he doing working for Todd Margaret? It looks more and more like he orchestrated the entire situation, but was it for his own amusement or is there something more sinister going on? The premiere certainly didn't give anything away, but Dave keeps Todd jumping and lying and generally creating more trouble for himself.
Follow all the lies on "The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret" every Friday night at 10:30 p.m. EST on IFC.
