The reason I started watching the show was because of Le Femme Nikita. Although then I had to depend on the Dutch tv channels I watched the episodes when they were on the TV.
How much I liked that show, I liked the new one even more. First off a great cast with Maggie Q as Nikita blowin it away. The pace was brilliant. No on and on plots and milking the same stories for a couple of episodes. The writing is great!
It is to bad the last season were only 6 episodes. This was way to short to write a good ending for a great show!
The original French film that spawned all these remakes was amazing and, as far as I was concerned, none of the remakes and series came close to the original. Until Maggie Q came along. The cast was great. And the action was well done. The story lines were interesting.
And by starting after Nikita escaped it gave the show more interesting and newer story lines to work with.
