Clearly, we're meant to root for [Buddy] to find redemption, but the trick will be to tolerate him, and the show, long enough to see change begin to happen.

In its effort to become hipper and edgier, TV Land happily has not abandoned "likable."

Rosenbaum has an amusing moment or two, but nothing to make anyone grin with the stereotypical wideness of the church's gay staffer.

Now and then, Impastor shows traces of sentimentality, which is fine in a comedy that otherwise seems to be trying to prove how naughty it is. Sentimental naughtiness is probably the essence of a lovable rogue.

The tone and presentation feels like something more likely to be found online as a web series, with the most obvious jokes you'd think of for the premise getting worked out of its system first.
