The latest work from Doug Liman, the moviemaker behind The Bourne Identity—a sci-fi/drama series which is based on the novel by Stephen Gould, and streaming on Youtube Premium. With ecstatic reviews, the series has somehow managed to join Cobra Kai as some of the only Youtube Premium content to make a mainstream splash.
Starring Sarah Desjardins, Missi Pyle, Maddie Hasson, Enuka Okuma, Craig Arnold, Tanner Stine, and Keegan-Michael Key. It is, like Liman’s film Jumper. Centered around a group of young people who have the superpowers, but don’t elect to become traditional superheroes and supervillains.
Impulse follows 16-year-old Henrietta ‘Henry’ Coles who discovers that she can teleport but has no control over her destination. The first time when she realizes this, she is in a truck with her high school’s basketball captain and star Clay Boone, who tries to rape her. She has a seizure and teleports, in the course of which she inadvertently crushes much of his truck when her ability to teleport first manifests, leaving him a paraplegic.
The show goes on to explore Henry’s need to reconcile what her assailant tried to do with the consequence, and her feeling about discovering that she could teleport herself and move objects from far away distance, which are triggered by her feelings of fear regarding the assault.
The superhero television series ahs always been so much exciting. There are new concepts of powers coming up. This superhero power seems to be a little bit unique from the others. I hope the second season leaves the audience thrilled. Doug Liman recently joined the ComicBook.com to discuss the series, which is in its second season on Youtube.
Since the series is already being compared with Cobra Kai which means it has to be very catchy for the audience. Let us hope that the second season will be a hit. We wish all the best to the stars and also the team.
