Reviews

American Todd Margaret bluffs his way into an apparently great job opportunity, heading up the sales team in his employer’s London office.

All he has to do is sell several thousand energy drinks before his boss arrives. Simple. Apart from the fact that he knows nothing about British culture and nothing about sales. Matters are further complicated when he ends up lying continuously to cover his ignorance and spectacularly fails to impress Alice, the first beautiful girl he meets, while Dave, his British co-worker, takes full advantage of Todd’s situation. Todd's increasingly poor decisions soon land him in big trouble, offending the majority of the British population and a great sporting institution along the way. Starring David Cross, Sharon Horgan, Blake Harrison and Will Arnett Created by David Cross Written by Shaun Pye, David Cross and Mark Chappell Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, Alex Hardcastle and Ben Gregor

Todd Margaret is a much under-rated comedy series. It has great attention to detail, superb writing and some great acting. It rewards repeated viewings to pick up all the linked jokes between different episodes. It really is one of the best comedy shows I have seen and combines the English self-deprecating sense of humour with American panache. No surprise that the UK side of the writing is from Shaun Pye (Monkey Dust).

However this DVD tells literally only half the story. It only covers season 1, although some of the clips in the extras relate to season 2. No mention of it only being season 1 is made on the DVD cover and with two discs I was hoping for both seasons. The extras on disk 2 are good, but hardly a substitute for the complete series 1 and 2 (which are very much interlinked and come to a proper conclusion at the end of series 2).

Season 2 has not been shown in the UK (something to do with C4 pulling out) but from what I have seen of it - Series 2 is also brilliant and if anything even better than season 1. So yes this DVD is worth buying, but let's hope Season 2 will also be released (and the lack of clear labeling is a bit disingenuous).

This DVD appears to be all region compatible (according to what my DVD player software tells me).

I'd never heard of this show (I don't know how), until I was looking through Netflix and I started watching it.

The first episode was a so so...BUT after that it really picked up. The main characters, Todd (David Cross), Alice (Sharon Hogan) and Dave (Neil from the inbetweeners) are all excellent particularly Cross, who plays the hapless yank REALLY well.

It can be a bit cringeworthy at times but if you like comedies like the office that rely on that...then this is a MUST SEE!

Shame there are only 2 series as yet, could happily watch this all day.

…good in parts, but overall rotten. A slack story, a lot of very childish jokes (he keeps wetting himself) and shock humour, mean this was very disappointing. I can see who it was aimed at, and that isn't me. I'm now an ex-David Cross fan.
