Audience Reviews for Painkiller Jane: Season 1
Mar 24, 2021In some areas the show may seem basic, with very little of the mythology's science explained, but I like that. There really is no good explanation, so it's better viewed as, "okay there are mutants basically," and just sit back and enjoy that. The cast is terrific, with Loken in particular carrying each episode easily, largely on the strength of her considerable badass charm. She is neither the best actor I've seen nor the worst, but she is the perfect Painkiller Jane. The character has a nice wry sense of humor, leavening the otherwise dark and foreboding subject matter, and the show is stylish to look at. Also the fight scenes are a lot of fun! I wish the show had had more seasons. I would have watched it as long as it aired. But the one season is pretty darn good as is.
