Impastor 'caps: Episode 2 [Jul. 26th, 2015|08:16 pm]
tasabian
Two episodes into Impastor and a little fandom seems to be building! More tweets this week, more fans popping up. Fingers crossed it's enough to snag a second season. The Offended Religious Contingent seems to have gone away entirely or watched an episode and realized they were fussing over nothing. In a recent interview, Michael mentioned how Impastor came about: that family sitcom he was cast in that never went beyond pilot stage in 2009 - the writer remembered him, wanted to build a show around him & 6 years later, it happened. (My theory: writer fell in love instantly, has been writing MR fanfic ever since and turned some of that fanfic into a pilot: a man after my own heart.)

They seem to understand how to sell this show. (Arms.)

Serious moment, in the rain.

Two comedy veterans: Sara Rue, who has her own healthy fan following and the man best known to me as Sledge Hammer!

The two deeply weird cops pursuing Michael's character Buddy, one of whom I gather is known and loved from Sanctuary?

Two of Buddy's love interests, pining prettily.

Buddy disguises himself to attend his own funeral - with a baseball cap. Pretty. Not a genius.

The most quoted line last week: "Dude on dude action - it's the best!"

So happy to have this face back on my TV again.

David Rasch!? Oh my stars, I had the hugest crush on him when he was Sledge Hammer. Good grief yes.

Me too! He was so funny on Sledge Hammer - so straight faced among all the ridiculousness. I remember all the other kids at school were watching Cosby/Family Ties etc and I was obsessed with Sledge Hammer!

On Impastor, he plays Michael's "nemesis", very suspicious of Buddy. It's fun watching them play off each other.

They both have terrific comedic timing, so I'm sure they're great together. I'll look for episodes. (I tried the first one but was troubled by Buddy getting into the guy's car instead of calling the police. Is that just glossed over?)

I have a suspicion the real guy may turn out to be Not Dead - a few hints in that direction. However it's fairly mordant humour - the death in the teaser isn't the last.

I think this show is such an ideal fit for him - he gets to play some comedy, including physical, but it's reined in and he also gets to be the leading man we always knew he could be.

Loved Ep 2. It's really quite a delight.

It's great he's finally in a role that acknowledges his sexiness. And I like the whole ensemble around him too.

He's an attractive charming guy, about time he got to play one on TV.

I get the feeling that Buddy's going to get redeemed little bit by little bit. He's a conman after all but God-type reprieves keep happening.

Oh, that's good to know! I love a redemption storyline. I have no tv but can look for episodes online. Thanks!

I can send you ep 1 & 2 if you like (& can give me an email addy.) If you can access hulu, they're also posted there, though not for us Canadians.

Thanks! I'll try the one free episode (and get all through it this time *s*) and then let you know if I want the second. :)

Update: I signed up for a free month and will watch all the things for just under 4 weeks! *g*

Pretty Michael being hilarious makes for such wonderful Wednesdays! :D

Seeing David Rasche keeps making me want to watch Sledge Hammer again. lol May have to check out Netflix for it.

YES! The one cop was Tesla on Sanctuary. I about lost it when I realized that's who it was, especially since it was the first ep when he was eating the banana. *G*

I can't wait to see what this week brings! ♥

Really cute pics, I should probably get around to checking out one of the episodes! Tbh Michael's comedy in his films isn't always the same taste as mine, so that put me off, but I have heard very positive reviews for this new show of his

I love that they are selling the show partly on Michael's hotness - he's been underappreaciated for far too long!

"Dude on dude action - it's the best!"
Heheheh! My favourite bit so far!

Long overdue! I love that he's very much the objectified one on the show and the costumer is a hero for the tight t-shirts.

My favourite bit so far!
He's so pleased with himself for coming up with it!

I haven't watched it yet. Is the show good? What channel is it airing on and what nights? I am so far behind on all things fandom.

I enjoy the show hugely! It airs on TVland in the US & you can see eps on their website or on hulu. (Alas, not airing outside the US yet.)
