For the James Marsters Fans and Non-Fans of 'Painkiller Jane'

James is joining the cast of 'Without a Trace'.

No spoilers beyond what character he'll be playing.

SciFi has pulled the plug on Painkiller Jane! WOO! Correct me if I'm wrong, but this is the first time I can recall that they've cancelled a show in it's first season with episodes still left to air. Sadly, the remaining eps will still air. Sadder, Flash Gordon had SciFi's biggest premiere of the year. Considering all the negativity I've read, I'm foreseeing those ratings nosedive...I hope.

A world where Painkiller Jane is generally considered to be awful is a world that makes sense. One can only hope that the same will hold true of Flash Gordon. I'm not surprised that the premiere was widely watched; I'm sure a lot of people tuned in to see what a new version would look like. Unfortunately, the answer was: not pretty.
Since Flash Gordon is such a widely known property and SciFi did do a good deal of advertising, I was certain that they'd get a sizable audience for the premiere to see what the latest spin on the franchise was. But even outside of my Flist I'm seeing comments like "God awful" and "Why did they cancel Dresden?" so I'm taking this to mean another possible early series exit. At this rate, SGA will be SciFi's flagship show. Heck, it may be the only ship left in the fleet.
hooray for the dead of jane!

and here's hoping for a quick death for flash as well. i loved the movie as a kid, and have a respect for its history pre-me, but yeah, it needs to go.
That's very cool about James Marsters. I like Without a Trace when I bother to watch it, so this will be added incentive to tune in!
Well congrats to James. He finally landed on a quality show. I hope it works out for him. I may even tune in.

I am so glad I never wasted my precious brain matter watching Painkiller Jane.
