Of course, the episode’s final scene in which Henry saves Clay’s life by teleporting him from the burning house to the safety of her bedroom puts her in a precarious situation now that she has to explain what just happened.

Episode 336 Impulse S01E07 He Said, She Said

Join Dave and Wayne for genre television show news, a glimpse into what the guys are currently watching, commentary and analysis for this week’s episode of the YouTube production Impulse, and our listener feedback. 

This week on SciFi TV Rewatch we discuss the rebound of Impulse after last week’s less than stellar offering. Separating the episode into three clearly dilineated sections works to great advantage, and Lucas’ grappling with the consequences of the murder of Amos Miller weighs heavy on both his soul and the episode itself.

In our What We're Watching segment, Dave’s been watching the Polish crime drama Ultraviolet which focuses on a group of citizens who solve crimes and assist the police using the internet and social media. Wayne continues working his way through the Cold War drama The Americans featuring Russian spies embedded into the fabric of everyday American life.

In Listener Feedback, Fred from the Netherlands asks whether Henry’s seizures might be related to her ability to teleport.

This week on SciFi TV Rewatch we discuss the episode’s failings which include shoddy dialogue, questionable character decisions, and a failure to significantly advance the overall plot. Still, we both like the addition of Henry’s former boyfriend Josh, and consider the first stages of Jenna’s exploration of her sexual identity.

In our What We're Watching segment, Dave’s five episodes into Netflix’s The Witcher and points out one of the more intriguing Netflix offerings that’s dropped in the past few weeks – the Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffatt interpretation of the Dracula tale. Not surprisingly, Wayne talks about the return of Doctor Who and gives the Series 12 premiere high marks.

In Listener Feedback, Fred from the Netherlands wonders how Josh’s introduction affects Henry’s attitude and whether Townes’ sister might play a role in Jenna’s search.
