Which is to say that if you liked the free-associating storytelling of the first two seasons, you’ll enjoy this latest offering.
Each episode of the show, now simply titled Todd Margaret, opens with a cloaked man reading from The Book Of The Prophecies Of The Premonitions to an all-male, sweatsuit-clad congregation.
In Boston, Cross began to perform stand-up more regularly.
From the mid-1980s to the early 1990s, Boston had a booming comedy scene, although Cross did not fit the types of acts being booked most of the time.
When IFC announced that David Cross would return for a third season of The Increasingly Poor Decisions Of Todd Margaret, it seemed the show would have to go back in time—or possibly sideways, to some kind of parallel universe—to move forward with another round of escalating deception and bad decision-making.
How else could it account for all the living people following the nuclear annihilation (that Todd was both directly and indirectly responsible for) at the end of season two?

But while the show may have a new title and an improved protagonist, the same fate awaits him—and the viewer.(Another nice touch is the return of Johnny Marr’s theme, “Life Is Sweet,” in the opening credits, albeit in cover form.)We now have a savvier version of the Portland businessman who unwittingly set off a chain of catastrophic events in his earlier outings.Well, perhaps “businessman” is too generous—in his previous incarnation, Todd was a corporate drone whose self-directed pep talk got him promoted by Brent Wilts (Will Arnett) and shipped to the U. to market the North Korean energy drink, Thunder Muscle.It all sounds and looks very ominous, although it’s not quite as visually striking a setup as having your main character begin the series on trial for crimes against humanity.But the cryptic passages, which riff on the revered introductions given Todd by the North Korean soldier in previous seasons, are effective teases for the episodes ahead and the lead character’s increasing sense of déjà vu.After additional moves to New York and Connecticut, the family settled back in Roswell, Georgia, where Cross remained for nearly a decade.His family was poor and Barry left the family when Cross was 10 years old; the two have not spoken since he was 19, though they both primarily resided in New York City until Cross sold his home there in 2011. The day after he graduated from Northside High School in Atlanta, Cross relocated to New York City.Lacking a plan, he drifted, working briefly for a lawn care company on Long Island. He would drop out after only a semester, but during his time there, Cross joined This is Pathetic, a college sketch group, where he met John Ennis.In the summer of 1985, the two aspiring actors took a road trip to Los Angeles, although this did not significantly further their acting careers.
