Sure, "Arrested Development" alums David Cross and Will Arnett already reunited on Fox's "Running Wilde." But they're actually funny in IFC's "The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret."

Cross, who created and wrote the six-episode series, also stars as Todd Margaret. It's a wonderfully strange tale of his foray into selling an energy drink in London.

When Todd, an awkward office temp, convinces his company's new owner, Brent Wilts (recurring guest star Arnett), that he's a badass go-getter, Wilts sends him across the pond to hawk Thunder Muscle to Brits (because "energy drinks are like crack for those people").

In his new position, Todd's only helper in selling the stuff is a smart-aleck assistant, Dave (Blake Harrison), who sees right through Todd's scam.

Todd also falls for a sweet cafe owner, Alice (Sharon Horgan), who rejects his bumbling advances but still takes pity on him.

Right off the bat, we know none of this ends well for Margaret. The opening scene shows him in a London court, charged with a litany of crimes ranging from funding a terrorist organization to possession of child pornography.

Most of Todd's troubles stem from his badly constructed lies and moronic decisions. Oh, and the energy drink he's sent to sell is highly toxic.

"Todd Margaret" isn't much of a departure for Cross or Arnett - Cross is back in Tobias Funke mode playing beta-male to Arnett's foulmouthed alpha a-hole - but it's definitely hilarious and frequently uncomfortable.
