Impastor follows Buddy Dobbs, a fugitive and hard-core gambling addict who, in order to hide from a pair of loan sharks, ends up stealing the identity of a recently deceased gay Lutheran pastor who was relocating to Ladner, a small-town community outside of Portland, Oregon. He hopes to keep up the ruse long enough to make the money necessary to flee Ladner, but he is inspired to stay after helping a mother and rebellious son as well as seeing how the townspeople get along peacefully. Over the series, Buddy tries to keep his true life from converging with his false life as various people from his past, plus two detectives who think he killed the pastor, come to town.

The cast is impeccable, Michael Rosenbaum in the lead, perfect in his role as a liar.
With Buddy's unorthodox ability to solve hid flock's problems, the sitcom flirts with comedy salvation.

Nothing is at all believable in the script, and nothing’s very funny, either. On top of that, the charm and abilities of Rosenbaum and Sara Rue, who plays the church secretary, are wasted with bad writing.
