Critic Reviews for Impulse Season 1

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (2)

Impulse doesn't take the conventional route for a show with immense powers. In uncharted territory, it's a show that's finding its way.

Top Critic

It's weakly plotted, but appropriate for a show that wants to make you think it's a young adult action franchise starter, when it's really an interesting and somber character study with a heroine who, very rarely, teleports.

Jun 5, 2018 | Full Review…

Intense, downbeat teen superhero series deals with assault.

Jun 12, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

"Impulse" is smart enough to give the other adult characters, such as Cleo and Tom, some meaningful emotional beats of their own.

Jun 12, 2018 | Full Review…

The focus is Henry's journey, however complicated and messy. Impulse takes care to make it feel real.

Jun 8, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's well-acted and looks great. But people looking for lots of teleportation razzle-dazzle might be disappointed.

Jun 7, 2018 | Full Review…

It's a young-adult drama that's one-part Fargo and two-parts 13 Reasons Why, with just a dash of superpowers. And that recipe somehow works, mostly.

Jun 7, 2018 | Full Review…

As far as moody teen dramas go (with or without superpowers), Impulse is one of the best options available to viewers at the moment.

Jun 7, 2018 | Full Review…

It's a show that has moves to play and story to tell. It could have failed dramatically thanks to a complete lack of humor, but this is one of the truly rare instances where excitable gags would have taken away from what can be.

Audience Reviews for Impulse: Season 1

    If you have ever seen the movie ‘Jumper', where people can travel anywhere they want, then this is for you. The cinematography is enjoyable, the visual effect is solid, but storywise is flat. Still one of the most promising series from Youtube premium | follow us at @uncle.review

    The show sells you a ride it's not taking you on. If you're expecting the show to be like the opening scene, you will be disappointed
  • May 10, 2019
    A series that sets inself in a super-hero like theme; similar to the movie Jumper (2008). I was a little surpised when the show took a different road, focusing on agression (rape, mental and physical) and teenage problems. Worth watching if you are young enough.

    Great show. Starts off with so many questions. I for one want to know the answers.
  • Feb 16, 2019
    Impulse is a great TV series in my opinion. The series provides the same experience of discovering what Henry is, what her power is. The performances are great, the TV series is dynamic and has an excellent script, photography, etc. I recommend it for sure.

    Gripping drama that you must watch
