2.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing, but... May 11 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I picked this title because it was at a reasonable discount. After watching the first DVD I am glad I didn't pay 50$ for this.

The series is intriguing since there's a special opt group searching ad tagging what they call 'Neuros', people with a special ability thanks to soemthing that goes wrong in their brain.

So I figured, hey this sounds a bit like Mutant x, x-men and so on. That was a mistake on my part...

I watched the episodes, they aren't boring, but not that entertaining either. Its a good series to pass time when you really don't have anything else to watch or are just plain bored and too lazy to go rent a dvd at the store.

I didn't get hooked on any characters and could care less whatever happened to them. I am sad to say that this series is going to be on my shelves for a long time before I finally finish viewing it or when I manage to sell it to someone else...

3.0 out of 5 stars Mindless, entertaining fun that never got the chance to grow Feb. 13 2008
By N. Durham - Published on Amazon.com
Freely adapted from its Jimmy Palmiotti and Joe Quesada-penned comic book origins and stylings, Painkiller Jane is definitely not the worst original series to hit the Sci-Fi Channel, and is good mindless fun for what it's worth. Terminator 3 and Bloodrayne hottie Kristanna Loken is Jane Vasco; a DEA agent that is recruited by a government agency. She now finds herself hunting genetically altered and enhanced criminals, or "Neuros", and soon discovers that she too has some strange abilities of her own, including the ability to heal from any injury. Throughout this first (and only) season of Painkiller Jane, Jane and her crew hunt these superpowered individuals, which leads to plenty of banter, fighting, and explosions. There really isn't much else to the show other than that, as things pretty much get wrapped up as the series comes to a close with Jane's allegiance coming into question. Loken, who was basically eye candy in Terminator 3 and had the thankless lead role in Bloodrayne, is pretty wooden throughout the series. She looks quite good though, and the supporting cast, namely Noah Danby as Connor and Sean Owen Roberts as Riley, are pretty good. That being said, you pretty much know what you're getting with Painkiller Jane. It doesn't strike the gold that other Sci-Fi shows like Farscape, The Invisible Man, or The Dresdin Files did and does, but it is mindless, entertaining fun that sadly never got the chance to really grow on what it set up before getting the axe. All in all, if you're a fan of the comic and missed out on the show when it aired on Sci-Fi, Painkiller Jane is worth a look, but don't expect much out of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the better Sci Fi channel shows Nov. 12 2008
By Patrick C. Wedge - Published on Amazon.com
Without getting too upset, I wish Sci Fi would have followed the true character from the comics a little more closely but hey, it was Sci Fi so I expected them to add a sci fi value to the series. As the series moved along, it did pick up some steam and the writing/stories got much better. Loken really did get the character's attitude and passion for what she was trying to accomplish. I'm glad this was collected into a full package and was upset when Sci Fi didn't renew the series. For Sci Fi, it was a great series placed at a horrible time slot (Friday 10pm). So take this chance and grab the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really good show April 22 2008
By Morrigan Alexandros - Published on Amazon.com
A pretty good and interesting show based on the graphic novel of the same title. The series was interesting, the acting was not top-notch but it was decent. The storylines were very interesting, especially in the first half of the season. Each episode was sort of an "monster of the week" scheme where the team would search and apprehend that week's monster or rather "neuro".

The series is about the main character, Jane Vasco, who can get shot, burned, fall of 80 story buildings and not die. She will get hurt, and will have a wound, but it will heal. She will still suffer the pain of the wound too. She gets recruited into a secret branch of the government tasked with capturing neuros (people with special abilities). They neutrolize them and ship them off to a facility.

The show also dealt with Jane's realization as to what she was and her potential powers. Towards the end, the show became a bit more confusing and tried to pursue too many conspiracy theories at the same time. It did not give itself time to explore them and thus, the show seemed rush to reach a resolution quickly. Still, it was a pity that this show was canceled.

Now, if Painkiller Jane and Superman (or any other superhero) were in a fight, who would win? Remember that Jane will always heals.

5.0 out of 5 stars great sci fi Dec 14 2011
By Kevin Graham - Published on Amazon.com

Just finished watching all 22 episodes on netflix.

This show was great. Don't want to give the plot away because with good sci fi watching what happen next is part of the fun.

First of all each show is pretty much self contained. What I mean is it has a begining and a end. It is not like some series that if you miss one you are lost. However as you watch you will see the relationship of the main characters grow and there is an ending to the series.

One thing I liked a lot about the show was it did not play like a soap opera that had all this stuff about the main characters personal life. Instead each espisode is more like a mission were the team of main characters must stop a sci fi threat and the personal issues are not brought up instead you just get to witness this very human team in action.

Also I really like the team. Each person seemed real and was able to act and emote very well. This is a show were the actors were picked for their acting ability first and they also looked the part, but the acting was priority.

Also each episode was done very well. Out of all 22 I didn't think any were filler.

Also I liked the fact that the violence was there but not sick, also their was not cussing or God's name in vain.

I originally wanted to watch it because the hot Kristina Loken from Terminator 3 was in it, but it turned out to be so much more.

Highly recommeded,

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun show! March 15 2008
By Tom Jones - Published on Amazon.com

This was a great show that was cancelled way too soon. It should have been given more time to develop as the stories kept on getting better each week. Buy the DVD set and you will see it was a lot of fun!
