Good mindless entertainment.
26 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched Painkiller Jane from the premiere onwards, but stopped watching once Psych came onto USA during the same time slot. Painkiller Jane isn't the best show by far, yet I would still call it one of my favorites on today. If you want sci-fi that doesn't make you think a lot yet still has reasonably interesting characters (Riley and Conner being two of my favorites on the show), then PKJ is for you. I'm glad Sci-Fi at least gave it a full season--it's a shame about the possible cancellation, because I think the cast could have grown into their roles and improvement dramatically with a second season.

Overall, I think the show is fine if you don't come into it with high expectations. Take it for what it is: an hour escape from reality. It's not meant to be Pulitzer Prize-winning material, but just a development of an old comic book idea. For all intents and purposes, PKJ provides a entertaining hour full of action.
