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.
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.

I'm totally with you.
Notice how when you watch CSI Miami in reruns, that they are literally dropping frames, making for very jerky movement and panning, all so they can fit another commercial in there.
"Hour-long" TV shows used to run 50 to 51 minutes not that long ago.
