Lots of language

I’ve almost finished the entire season and at this point I’ve heard f**k probably at least ten times, among other curse words. There was one episode in which a... Continue reading

What's the story?

IMPOSTERS is a dramatic comedy about a young groom who was conned by his beloved wife. Ezra Bloom (Rob Heaps) was happily married to Eva (Inbar Lavi), a beautiful Belgian woman who he barely knew. On the 29th day of his married life he discovers that Eva has gone and taken all his money with her, leaving him with a good-bye video and a threat to expose his father's dirty secrets. After quitting his job with the family business, Ezra sets out to figure out where she is. Soon he finds some unlikely allies, including Richard (Parker Young) and Jules (Marianne Rendón) who were also conned by Eva and her co-conspirators (played by Katherine LaNasa and Brian Benben). But when they move on to their next victim, Eva begins to question her career choice, much to the dismay of her boss (played by Uma Thurman).

Is it any good?

This compelling series combines romance, crime, and humor as it follows the paths of people who were taken advantage of in a long con. The portrayals of these victims are believable, and Inbar Lavi's portrayal of a woman who can easily con powerful men is more entertaining than it is troubling. 

There are some poignant moments, but they're balanced with a comic lightheartedness that makes the show easy to watch. It's a little edgy, but what makes Imposters an engaging show is that it tells a good story without being overly complicated. If you're looking for something that's fun, this series should foot the bill. 

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about dramatic comedies. What are the challenges that come with telling a sad story with humor? Is it meant to be insensitive? Should it be taken seriously? Do you think Imposters offers a good mix of both? 

  • Families can talk about honesty. Why do you think con artists do what they do? How do you think they feel about themselves?
