The upcoming YouTube Red
original series Impulse
(set in the world of Jumper) features a rebellious 16-year-old girl named Henry (Maddie Hasson), who has always felt different and longed to escape her small town. In the action thriller, she soon discovers she has the extraordinary ability to teleport. The first time she realizes this, she is in a truck with her high school’s Golden Boy, who tries to rape her. She has a seizure and teleport's, in the course of which she inadvertently crushes him, leaving him a paraplegic. This confirmins that she really is different from everybody else, but that comes with its own set of problems, as people want to control her.
What the show does best is deal with consent and the lingering trauma a sexual assault can cause a victim. It's a multi-episode process that's almost always in the foreground as Henry faces the constant presence of her attacker; suffers self-doubt as her story is questioned; and shies away from other intimacies in her life, already a problem for the new girl in school and for one of those sci-fi characters whose burgeoning adolescence and nascent powers are intermingled.
Cast: Maddie Hasson, Missi Pyle, Sarah Desjardin, Enuka Okuma, David James Elliott, Daniel Maslany, Tanner Stine, Craig Arnold.
