Perhaps what surprised me the most was just how sharp the writing is. Especially once Uma Thurman shows up in a reoccurring role, even an overanalyzing television cynic like me couldn't help but just enjoy the ride.

it does manage to do 'cheesy' in a passably clever way.

Imposters developed a small, but impassioned cult following for good reason.

Mar 12, 2018 | Full Review…

Imposters is an ambitious neo-noir black comedy, centered around a con artist and her victims. It's an enjoyable watch, but suffers from inconsistent tone.

A con artist caper with a perfect mix of dark comedy, emotional stakes, colorful characters and "OMG!" twists

Fun, soapy con artist tale combines comedy and tragedy.

Feb 22, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

If you like dark comedies with a dash of slapstick and a lot of satisfying twists and turns, tune in. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing where this is going.

Feb 7, 2017 | Rating: 7.5/10 | Full Review…

What at first glance looks a rather slight confection about a pretty conwoman ripping off rich male saps quickly becomes a lot more interesting -- not to mention surprisingly dark and funny.

Mar 26, 2018 | Full Review…

An amoral, streetwise anti-heroine who is very complicated. Do you root for her or for the guys she's fleeced? That's an intriguing question and it's what propels this captivating new black comedy/drama series.

Feb 7, 2017 | Full Review…

It's a shaggy, ridiculous, tonally inconsistent show... But it owns its own nuttiness, which allows the audience to adjust its expectations accordingly - and makes for a fun, unexpected journey.

There are occasional laughs and bits and pieces of the concept that I like, but really the best reason to watch Imposters will be for Inbar Lavi and possibly just to get excited for what she'll do next.

Feb 7, 2017 | Full Review…

While not exactly earth-shattering television, Imposters offers some fun, light-hearted escapism, dropping a few tricks of the trade along the way. But the show made an extremely fortunate find in lead Inbar Lavi.

Audience Reviews for Imposters: Season 1

    The perfect show -- not too comedic but not too serious, and meaningful but not overly deep nor overly ditzy. The kind of show I am proud to vouch for and show to my friends. The kind that is addictive to watch, starting 10 minutes into the first episode. A show that is great for all ages (well, 15-80!). The show also makes great strides in terms of sexuality (ie showing spectrums, depths /love, etc, and not just sex and drama). Fantastic actors. Fantastic plot, lively and unpredictable. ** This is my favorite TV show of all time ** (and I watch more TV than anyone I know, so I have a lot to compare to.) I am very sad that I only discovered this show AFTER it had been officially cancelled. I have turned over 50 people onto this show since I discovered it... I hope that with more recognition it can be revived for a 3rd season.

    Too many plot holes, unrealistic scenarios. But still entertaining.

    This show sucks. The creative team seem to know nothing about cons or con artists. They also appear to have a shallow view of romance, heartbreak and morality. The writing team writes like young people who know nothing about life. The worst thing is there is no edge here. They want a light "Breaking Bad" but don't understand the complex relationship between drama. comedy and the dangerous lives these people are leading. This is silly play land that is neither funny, dramatic or suspenseful

    I actually clicked on this series somewhat accidentally. I couldn't decide if the lead actress was Vanessa Hudgens (she isn't) and by the time I figured it out, I was pulled all the way in. Very few television series surprise me. Imposters took me through so many twists and turns, each more interesting and captivating than the last. Every actor in the ensemble is so well written and deeply drawn that I had trouble figuring out who were the leads. They develop throughout, with each going through a wide range of layers, emotions and states of mind. I love this show. It's so nice to be surprised once in a while.

    OMG what fun it is to watch Imposters!!!

    This might be the worst show I've ever invested time in. Though the direction is actually great, the characters are poorly developed and the dialogue is nothing short of cringeworthy. I created an account just to share how bad it is. Please don't waste your time on it.

    the only con they pulled off is the 100% on this site.
  • May 03, 2019
    Wow!! Fantastic show! It totally surprised me! Can't believe Braco cancelled this show! Maybe Netflix will rescue it & bring us another season or 2!!!
