      In this review, I take a look at Painkiller Jane, Episode 10 from Season 1. The title of the episode is “Portraits of Lauren Grey.” In this scene from Sci Fi’s original series, imagine the lives of runway models: with all the quick-changes, back-stabbing, stereotypical self-image issues. The male designer walks through the dressing room, doling out massive amounts of abuse and equal parts denigrating the models that have a little meat on them and questioning the femininity of those that have already gotten rid of the God-given padding

      that makes them women.

      Now, add to the story a little problem some of these women are having: they keep dying of old age. Death’s specter is traipsing through the dressing room and young women around 20 or so die looking like 80 year olds. Obviously, a “neuro” is involved here, and Painkiller Jane’s team is investigating to find the one killing off the models.

      The show touches on the vanity and shallowness associated with people in the modeling industry, whether they be other models or the people that run the shows.

      • It also tries to illustrate what all humans seem to strive for: retaining, or maybe more appropriately regaining, our youth and keeping our lives at the forefront of the best of our lives. It also demonstrates the vanity and faultiness of attempting such an unattainable goal. Just trying to do it, whether through means available to us mere mortals, or through the extreme measures the neuro was able to use, shows us a weakness within our selves common to all.

        Once again, we see yet more improvement in the scripting

        and acting for the show. This episode focuses almost solely on Jane and her increased awareness of her powers as her neuro nemesis targets her for a very special taste of something she has never experienced before. Jane uses some of what she is learning about herself to fight the effects of the neuro’s power.

        I am giving this episode 8 out of 10 sticky jujubees for the continued improvement in the story-line, performances and overall entertainment value. Definitely worth a watch if you have not already seen it!
