    I've kinda got hooked on SciFi Channel's new "filler" series Painkiller Kane until October when BSG comes back in its slot. It features Kristanna Loken as Jane, who, as of yet has an unidentified ability that allows her to survive almost anything. She can fall from buildings, be electrocuted, and take alot of punishment. Pretty good show, but not the best.

    What is everyone elses, who has seen the show, take on it?

    Haven't seen the show myself, but an avid BSG fan. The uh...last episode said it was returning in 2008. Is there a new time frame for the new season I'm not aware of?

    I watched the Sci-Fi Original Movie they did of it, because my ex wanted to watch it. I hope the series is a LOT better than that.

    I've not read the comics, but as I understand it, the series is closer to source material in some aspects, but just as far off in others.

    Series isn't bad, and the last episode had Kristana Loken dancing around in her underwear.

    Well, that's pretty all right.

    Devilzfan, I dunno what MyNewModelGiantJapaneseTruck is talking about. As far as I know, the season proper starts again next year, but there is a two-hour extended ep about the Pegasus due for this fall. Maybe that's it?

    I watched the first three episodes and I really don't like it. I might try a couple of more episodes, but it's just not doing anything for me.

    The BSG series returns in 2008 minus two episodes that will air as a movie in 2007.

    I find it to be incredibly boring and simple...

    BSG is supposed to have a movie this fall, then the series next year. But in the meantime Painkiller Jane is filling the slot. I like the show as it has what they call "Neuros" or people with random neurological mutations that give them abilities. Painkiller Jane (or Jane) in the series works on the team hunting down these Neuros. In each show, Jane has to either get REALLY hurt or killed (i.e shot up, fall from a building, electrocuted, etc.). I think like with any series that has that kind of catch it has only so much "original" material to pull from. I mean, come on, how many ways can someone die or be hurt?

    MyNewModelGiantJapaneseTruck, haha. Funny title. Really. But, the Ridgeline isn't THAT big.

    Bill Murray might know! Presumably his character investigated every single method available in Punxsutawney.

    That would be a good reason to watch.

    I've been watching it and I've come to a decision that a) Kristana Loken isn't a very good actress and b) they need to fire the writers as the plots and dialog so far have been pretty bad.
