Storyline

Con artist Maddie is as beautiful as she is dangerous. Over the years, she has left a trail of unwitting victims who become tormented upon realizing that they have been used and robbed of everything -- including their hearts. Her latest assignment threatens to be derailed, though, when she meets Patrick, a potential love interest. Further complicating Maddie's work are three former targets -- Ezra, Richard and Jules -- who realize they have been scammed by the same woman and team up to track her down. When the victims choose to embark on the quest, they don't realize that they must face their own truths and find new versions of themselves along the way. Written by Christopher Wilson

Imposters stars Inbar Lavi as a con woman able to be a rich person's perfect romantic partner before skipping out with their money. In the series, she is working on her next victim while three former victims hunt her down.

It's a nutty story fueled primarily by the charm of its principles.

Lavi is perfect as the girl who is easy to love. Often you would expect this part to go the route of the femme fatale; an intimidating, sexy, mysterious woman. But Lavi is sweet and lovable, which is much truer to what men actually go for (remember, in Gilligan Island polls, men were hotter for girl-next-door Maryanne than sex bomb Ginger).

Her pursuers have an easy rapport as they bumble their way towards a woman they all clearly love. In a ridiculous but clever turn, the three decide to con people along the way. While they hunt Inbar down, she finds that there is more to her current con than she expects.

So far (and I'm 4 episodes in) this hasn't been typical of con artist movies. That is, there's no elaborate con here that is going to somehow get turned on its head, like Leverage. This is a movie about people who are con artists, rather than a movie that wants to con the audience. At least so far; you can never fully trust a movie about cons (addendum: this does change, although the big con is still much more character- driven than typical).

Anyway, you should definitely watch this, it's great.
