La Femme Nikita is about a young woman who is falsely accused of murder. While in prison, she is taken by a top secret counter-terrorist agency called, Section One. Section One, believing she is a beautiful yet cold blooded killer, gives her a choice - work for them or she will be canceled. Forced to work for them and their ruthless ways, Nikita struggles to keep her compassion and her integrity. La Femme Nikita ran for 5 seasons on the USA Network.
Having seen both La Femme Nikita and Nikita I have to give the edge to this show. Yes the clothes and even the settings are more often hokey than not but still. This version of Michael and Nikita really have that passion that Nikita's versions seem to lack. Also I like the storyline *Spoilers* with Nikita really being in Section for the whole time and in the end taking it over *End Spoilers* better than the Nikita plot. Hey this is just my opinion but I would have rather had all of the Nikita episodes just have been a literal continuation of the series with the same characters than a new show based off this one. What do you think?
