    While the production values may be loose, Impulse’s entertainment value runs strong.

    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.

    It's often quite solid and Maddie Hasson effectively leads a fine ensemble, but Impulse really isn't the show you might be expecting.

It reminds me of some of the super-heroes tv shows except maybe a bit darker and more serious. The acting is solid all-around, the story is interesting, the cinematography is beautiful, and locations are amazingly Americana. Expand

    Just saw the first episode - this is the first high school drama that really captured me in the sense that I really want to see the next one.Just saw the first episode - this is the first high school drama that really captured me in the sense that I really want to see the next one. The mysteries are mysterious, there's little to no cliche going around and above all - the characters behave like reasonable people would under the circumstances. No fake freaking or dramatic drama, just folks dealing with a very strange situation in their own ways. Expand

    Sci-fi that in season 1 focuses more on slow character and relationship development a la The Americans.

A nicely done origin story in which a teen (and those around her) grapples with how she can come to terms w/an abusive encounter with a classmate while at the same time trying to understand and control a newly discovered superpower. Generally well-written and acted. I suspect season 2 will give us more of the sci fi elements. Expand

    Just like 'Cloak & Dagger', I didn't think I'd like it, but I did.

    Again, like the mentioned show, it doesn't feel padded or stretched out.

    No excessive flashbacks, good supporting cast. Story is good.
    Getting to know her powers, not a classic villain at first, but interesting plot.

    The motivation of the 'jumper-hunter' remains unclear, but the finale is interesting.
    If there is a second season...

    All in all, if you're into that kind of show, it's a good pick.
