TV,eh? What's up in Canadian television

In the news: Painkiller Jane interview, reviews


  • Interview with Kristanna Loken
    “Loosely based on the comic book series of the same name by Jimmy Palmiotti, the television show is about a covert agency that tracks down neurological aberrants, or “neuros.” Loken’s character, former DEA agent Jane Vasco, discovers that she has some abnormal skills of her own: She can be injured — and she can certainly feel the pain — but she heals very quickly and can survive experiences that would kill ordinary people. In the process, she kicks a lot of ass while taking down the bad guys.”

From TV Blend:

  • TV Review: Painkiller Jane
    The first two episodes offer little substance for viewers to tear into. This is a shame because if you can look past that you’ll see the potential.”

From the Seattle Post Intelligencer:

From the LA Daily News:

  • ‘Painkiller Jane’ could become a quirky addiction
    “In “Heroes,” the characters with special powers are largely the good guys, being hunted by a shadowy group with ostensibly sinister motives. In “Painkiller Jane,” the shadowy group comprises the good guys and those with bizarre powers are neutralized.”

In the news: Why Little Mosque is a hit

From Moneycontrol India:

  • Why ‘Little Mosque of the Prairie’ is a hit
    “It’s not about being politically correct or incorrect, it’s about breaking the Muslim stereotype and Canadian sitcom ‘Little Mosque of the Prairie’ seems to be doing it all, in good humour. Already a runaway hit in Canada, ‘Little Mosque of the Praire’ sheds light on the not-so-serious side of the Muslim community which has been facing mistrust and discriminatory backlash since 9/11.”
