    This is one of those episode's I've been waiting for for a long time, the fact this is written by one of my favorate comic book writers makes it all the better. Personally I'm not really a fan of Bart Alan/Impulse my favorate Flash will always be Wally West. Anyway, adding Bart/Impulse into the picture could've gone badly if his character was handled wrong, but he really didn't disapoint he's funny, fast talking, just like his grandfather Barry smart may'be even smarter as we see later on. A bit obnoxious but in a good way sort of like Ben Tenasen from the "Ben 10" franchise where it's something you both groan and laugh at.



    The funnest and slightly touching moment was when Bart came to the house of his grandparients Barry and Iris, and it was just funny how he was calling them grandma and grandpa as well as Jay (The very first Flash) and his wife his ancestors, and we see the reactions on their faces, yeah I'd feel a little confused if anyone ever said they were my future son or daughter. But what was funnier was when Bart accidently droped a spoiler on Barry and Iris I won't give that away but trust me it's funny. Another funny moment was when we see that Wally is a little slower than both Barry and Bart, Wally must seriously be out of practice.



    I liked the little subplot with Red Arrow and Cheshire, their one of my favorate couples in comics personally I think their a bit underrated. Yeah, it's a complicated one but that was the beauty of it for me. Of course we see both did go further at some point and have a daughter Lian, and we see both of them work together they really do make a good team despite opposite idiologies. One moment that was blackly and ironically funny was seeing after they've beaten the crap out of what looked like thirty henchmen surrounding them, Lian giggled and laughed, this leads to a clever quote by Cheshire.



    The battle with Neutron was decent, but this episode was more about seeing the generations of The Flash together, just seeing that is one of the reasons why "The Flash" is one of my personal favorate superheroes because you have generations of a legend let alone generations working together. But also I really liked seeing the distinct differences in all the Flash versions which justifies why they make a good team, this is something I don't see in many superheroes.



    The ending I'll admit was kinda sad, we see another part of Bart's persona that deep down inside he really isn't happy but is actually sad as he's lived in that bleak future most of his life, this makes the character sympathtic. And we see despite changing one detail of the future for the better it wasn't enough to change it as a whole. It shows that something else happened something really bad to make the future bleak, and despite Impulse's knowledge of things to come it may not be enough to save the future.

  • Impulse... Finally ! ! !

    10
    The episode I was waiting for since Young Justice started is finally here. Finally Bart IMPULSE Allen is here.

    Don't get me wrong I love Wally, and this interpretation of the character is fantastic. But I'm a guy who grew up reading the Young Justice comic and loved the originals. Now that Bart is "stuck" in the past, that means that sooner or later there MUST BE the team up of: Superboy, Robin(Tim Drake), Impulse and Wonder Girl or at the very least the original three. I mean the producer JUST HAVE TO DO IT, they won't tease us bringing Bart and not doing it.

    All in all, great episode, for the first time we saw ALL the speedster that have been in one point or another The Flash in comics so it was great.

    We have to wait and see what will happen down the road.moreless
  • OH YEAH IMPULSE!

    10
    WHile Loralee has been in love with Impulse since Smallville. I have been in love with him since his debut comic back in 1995. I was absolutely ecstatic to see him in the Young Justice cartoon, since he was in the Young Justice Comic. I am also ecstatic to see that the episode was written by Peter David, one of my favorite Comic book writers, who wrote the YJ comic.



    The only difference I was sad that they did not keep with this Bart was the fact that he thought in pictures instead of words. SInce his origin story is very different, that makes sense. This overall episode gives me hope that the new Young Justice team will be solid. If Impulse joins, I will be very pleased. Now if they get Arrowette and Little Lobo I will be very happy.

  • Can we talk about the crazy that was Bloodline!

    10
    guys, I'm back to talk about the crazy that was Bloodline!



    OHH MAN!!



    K, IDK where to startK. I'll start with the fact the little Mrs. Jade deemed it appropriate to bring a 6ish month old baby with her to TibetYou know what, FINE! Lets pretend no one knows she had Roys (what R we calling him now?) baby! No one knew, and it's been like a year now and she kept that crap hidden. Good for her! Her sister has no idea, and I guess she hid out in a cave. WHY NOT!



    But I am not gonna watch this show and believe that the old? new evil kept the Real Harper in a cold room surrounded by about a hundred guards, that NOT ONLY let these young adults slip past them, but were ALL taken down by them? And they have no injuries from said event? But somehow The Real Harper has no arm!?!!! What kind of Hell did he have to go thought to end up with no freaking arm people?!



    Also that baby who's old enough to have teeth, and begin talking can now identify her 'dad', understand Roy IS INDEED her father, AND realize there are two in front of her in order to say 'dadddys'? NOO! I draw my foot at THAT! Yes, I'll believe somehow this child didn't break its neck from all the fighting while her mother held her, But NOT THIS! NOOO!



    .K, guys, on to the 'A' plot line.



    So IN LOVE w Impulse! You guys don't even know! I LOVED him in Smallville! SOO BAD!!! I LOVE his voice! (@TheGuyFromTheWeekenders) I could tell I'd love him the flashback. And I was happy I spotted a dif. In his attitude, only to see a flashback showing that he's actually serious, AND funny.He's like Trunks from DragonBall Zwell Trunks was never funny, but you get the point.



    Verrrry happy Flash didn't die, and Kid Flash is still w Artemis/KF. I wasn't ready 4 him to join the JL.



    ALSO, I'm REALLY hoping this is the start of a bunch of time lines, and by the end of this season we will be 5 years in the past again/back to normal! Cuz we've jumped 40 years ahead, and it didn't fix the future, so I think they'll have to go back to 2011/when everything was normal.



    I just don't love the new team like I did the old. I'm holding out 4 something better.





    Also, I love that KF & NighwIng still have such a bromance!moreless
  • BEST! EPISODE! EVER!

    10
    And not just because it had all three of my favourite characters from DC (Tim Drake, Lian Harper and Bart Allen). The writing was amazing, I love how Cheshire and Roy took Lian on a mission and all she could do was giggle at the violence, plus Red Arrows disturbance at it and Cheshires "It's genetic". Bart Allen was hillarious, as always. Normally it annoys me when shows change a characters back story but this time I didn't mind and actually found it more intriguing then comic canon. Nightwings knockout was especially awesome and Robin is just awesome because he's Tim Drake. Like I said best episode ever.moreless
