"Painkiller Jane" on the small screen

There are only so many hours in the day, and I can’t spent them ALL reading comics. So there’s some I’ve just never read.

Take “Painkiller Jane,” for example. Never read it. If you’re a fan, though, check out the new series starting Friday night on the Sci-Fi Channel. Reviews are mixed. “The show’s clearly all about style over substance,” the Los Angeles Daily News says. The Orlando Sentinel is more positive, at least as far as star Kristanna Loken: “Jane started as a comic-book character, and Loken transforms her into a three-dimensional figure with appealing vulnerability and amiable sarcasm.”
