Well done, Lex Luthor. Well done...
16 November 2015 | by kofilaSee all my reviews

So, TV Land? Michael Rosenbaum? Lutheran pastor? Meh. I don't think so. Or do I... So I was just browsing the IMDb the other day looking for some new comedy and I stumbled upon Impastor. The premise sounded OK but the rest I wasn't so sure about. Being from the generation for which Smallville was defining TV show (not me personally though) I was quite familiar with Rosenbaum and I have to say I didn't like the guy. Watching the trailer left me hesitant but having nothing else to watch I tried it. And loved it! Rosenbaum is cool and funny but ultimately a bit dumb and simple (which is a good thing), David Rasche is charming, the rest is fine as well (loved the two cops). The writing quality is steady and the story is well paced. Please renew!
