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

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.

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 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…

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.
