    Yeah, it's alright, not even close to the level of Arrested Development but it's funny and more than a little bit awkward.

    I seen an avert a few days ago on more4 which stars David Cross and Will Arnett along with the guy from the Inbetweeners, I think it's called Running Wilde. I haven't seen enough adverts of it though.
    There is a show called Running Wilde, starring Arnett with Cross as a supporting character.
    But the show with Neil from The Inbetweeners is The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret, which started last night on More4, starring Cross with Arnett as a recurring character.
    I've seen a few episodes from the US and tbh it isn't up to much. It does have its moments, but these are far outweighed by moments when you just feel plain sad for Todd - I actually found it quite depressing in places
    Will Arnett is brilliant in it, but he's very much a recurring character and is massively underused.

    This is a good show too. The promos and trailer make it out to be a romantic comedy, but thats far from it, its much better than people think. What you think of it so far?

    I think will arnett has much more freedom in RW then he does in the increasingly poor decisions of todd margaret, which means I see much more of the Gob that I really liked in AD

    By the way, did anyone know that the actress who played the girl who Michael thought was his sister is Jason Bateman's sister in real life? I can't see the resemblance!

    There's a minor resemblance in the jaw/chin area. Me and my sister share absolutely no resemblance - she looks like my mum and I look like my dad.

    Yeah I knew that but it still weirds me out as her character was a prostitute. Must be weird to see your sister acting like that.

    Just found out that the actress (Amy Poehler) who played Gob's bride who also had a crush on Tobias is actually Will Arnett's wife. Quite a few family connections in this :ahee:
