SEASON:

TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: David Cross brings a bumbling charisma to this shaggy series, but viewers may find the chronicles of Todd Margaret's poor decisions to be too mean-spirited and scattershot to sustain their interest.

Tv Season Info

The escapades of a prevaricating American office temp (David Cross, who also created and wrote the series), who lands a sales job in London as the chief marketer for an energy-drink company, despite being completely unqualified.

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (5)

It's all exceedingly bizarre, which isn't necessarily the same as being funny.

It had a promising start... But events in London felt a touch understaffed, too loosely handled, too dependent on Todd's calamities.

Dec 3, 2018 | Full Review…

There are genuinely funny moments within each episode. Unfortunately, these moments are surrounded by ridiculous situations and disgusting gags.

What makes this show worth binging is that plot, which is surprisingly more twisting than a ShondaLand show.

Dec 3, 2018 | Full Review…

"Todd Margaret" is all about its own ad-hoc lunacy, and yet it holds up as a pretty funny take on American corporate arrogance and as a symbol of the shift the workplace comedy has taken in recent years.

This is fun at first, but it becomes tiring to see him continually swatted down.

Dec 3, 2018 | Full Review…

Yet as much as the channel likes to promote itself as having an "indie perspective," merely being offbeat isn't the same thing as being on target.

This is fine work from Cross (who, in the interest of transparency, is in the same fantasy baseball league as I am).

Dec 3, 2018 | Full Review…

There's something Costanza-esque about Todd: just as you get close to pitying and rooting for the guy, he weaves a web of lies so pointless and idiotic, or starts thinking so highly of himself, that you realize he pretty much deserves everything he gets.

It's a great vehicle for Cross, and there's little doubt that he'll make the most of the role.
