This show, shows some great promise in its premise. (Say that 5 times fast) Michael Rosenbaum plays the lead well and the secondary cast give us some great little snickers. Special mention must be given to Sara Rue, her performance was perfect.

I have high hopes for this one, tell all your friends so they all get on board for a few good laughs.

Nice start with some decent jokes, so I really want to se if this will develop into a really good show, or will become sloppy and boring.

I read an article a little while ago on Michael Rosenbaum's decision to leave Smallville for comedy. I respected it, but the article was saying that his decision hadn't yet really resulted in anything noteworthy. Well, I'm going to have to disagree because Impastor is a little gem. Just binged the entire first season tonight and I couldn't stop, much like Kimmy Schmidt.

Impastor is not a sitcom. It's a unique comedy about a smalltime criminal in a world of trouble who steals the identity of a recently deceased man, and decides on a whim to assume his identity - that of a gay pastor.

The acting in this show is fantastic, and the writing is really smart. The town is filled with quirky and colorful individuals and each episode has fun little b and c stories while the A is always Father Barlow (Michael Rosenbaum) trying to protect his identity.

I highly recommend everyone check this show out. It's short and quick and a lot of laughs and well worth your time. Good for you Mr. Rosenbaum. I miss smallville, of course, and your role as the ridiculous boyfriend in Breaking in (FACE!!!), but Impastor is perfect for you and I hope it continues for a while!

This is a funny show, with good actors and great writing. Michael Rosenbaum is pretty good as Buddy Dobbs but it is the rest of the cast that really shines and brings this show together. All of the characters are very funny and interesting in their own ways and are portrayed perfectly by all the actors involved. Keep in mind this is a light-hearted comedy with lots of crazy coincidences which require a slight suspension of disbelief in order to really get into the story. Admittedly I had low expectations for this show from reading the premise but I was pleasantly surprised.

I have loved Michael Rosenbaum since he was in Zoe, Duncan, Jack & Jane... and when he became Lex Luthor on Smallville I wasn't sure he could pull off a non-comedic role until i saw him. He's got wide acting range yet he seems to love comedy, which is good for viewers because he is actually funny. So far this show seems like a keeper!

First episode shows promise. Who doesn't love Lex Luther a.k.a Michael Rosenbaum.

I had high hopes for this show but after a few episodes the jokes just got old. They could have done a better job with it.

The show started off a little slow, but we kept with it and turned out to be a good comedy. We were sorry to see it canceled. Maybe it will pick it up by some one else.
