Imposters Season 1 Review

6 February 2017 8:23 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Three episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

Is there a prouder American institution than that of the con artist? They abound throughout our history and literature. Huckleberry Finn adventured with the Duke and the Dauphin, Herman Melville gave us a literal boatload of con men in The Confidence Man, and Paul Newman and Robert Redford grifted and conned their way through The Sting.

And it’s not just fiction. Not only are all the aforementioned con artists based on real people, but they just keep popping up in the tale of America: Bernie Madoff, Frank Abagnale and Mel Weinberg are all living men infamous for their tricks of confidence. Even the sitting president has been labeled a con artist by both his detractors and members of his own political party.

With all this said, is it necessary to tell another story centered around con artists? Someone certainly seems to think so. »

Annette Bening's Oscar Nominated RolesAnnette Bening's Oscar Nominated RolesAdriana Floridia1/12/2017 10:14:00 Am

Annette Bening is one of our greatest working actors, and the Academy has surely recognized that. She's been nominated for four Oscars, three for Best Actress in a Leading Role and one for her supporting work in 1990's The Grifters. Despite these accolades, she has yet to take home the gold.

This year, she is again an Oscar front-runner for her performance in Mike Mills' 20th Century Women. Another semi-autobiographical film from the director (his 2011 feature Beginners was based on his real experiences with his father, and Christopher Plummer won the Oscar for his portrayal), this time Mills is paying tribute to his mom. Annette is filling big shoes, playing a character inspired by the director's mother, and Mills' has even said that Annette in a sense is like his mom now, as he has »
