No doubt- it's the best comedy of 2015.
30 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

this show has extremely funny and crazy plot. the acting is superb, especially Michael rosenbaum (lex Luther of "smallvile") that show us a great comic ability.

the craziness of impastor reminds me the show "my name is earl", (althought it's way better).

many high-concept-sitcoms started this year. comedies with ongoing plot, like the last man on earth, unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, galavant, etc. i believe that impastor is now the best show of this sub-genre.

in age when every half-hour dramas with one silly joke per episode pretend to be "comedy", it's refreshing to see show that have many laughs.

i found this show last week, tried the first episode, and just found myself binging the first 6 episodes. too bad it's on TV-land, so most people never heard of, or under impression that this show is like TV land's other crap. also, it's ashame that TV land didn't promoted this great show as it should be.

in conclusion: do yourself a favor and try to watch the best current comedy show.
