I kept hearing about this show from my friend, Brie. My TV is usually stuck on Bravo, but I’ve recently tired of my Housewives. I just can’t with the 2 Lisas & Eileen on RHOBH & I’m so tired of Kandi, Phaedra & Porsha on RHOA. So, I missed all the promos for this show, Imposters.
Now just hear me out because I’ve explained the show to a few friends & they’ve all said, “Uh…I dunno.” So, the premise is a trio of con artists work for this Doctor & they are assigned a mark. They befriend, impress & seduce the mark into marrying & when the coast is clear they take the mark for all the money they can.
The first episode starts with a couple in love & we quickly learn who is part of the trio of con artists & we meet Ezra, their latest mark. He’s heartbroken, devastated & in true dark comedy style, tries to kill himself by climbing in the oven & hanging himself with an extension cord after his wife leaves him. A guy shows up at Ezra’s house posing as an FBI agent, but he’s actually another male who was duped by Imposters. Together they attempt to track down the woman they each knew as their wife.
Meanwhile, The Imposters are in Seattle & moved onto their next mark, Gary Heller. The audience gets to follow their attempt to land the new mark, all the while the female lead might actually be falling in love for real & the marks are trying to figure out how to get their revenge. This show is funny, dark, sad, suspenseful & relatable. I mean, we’ve all been duped by at least one person in our lives, right?
Imposters airs Tuesday nights on Bravo & you can catch up with full episodes on Demand.
