If having the complete first season in one set doesn't please series fans, the supplemental features will surely satisfy even the iciest armchair operative. Disc 1 offers commentary by Surnow, Cochran, and director Jon Cassar on "Nikita" as well as commentary by Surnow for deleted scenes from several episodes (also on discs 2, 3, and 6); disc 6 features Surnow's comments on "Mercy," as well as "Section One Declassified: The Making of La Femme Nikita," which features interviews with the cast and creators. --Paul Gaita
While Jennifer Garner is beautiful and gets to wear fancier clothes, Peta Wilson is much more credible (Yes, guys, she's easy on the eyes as well). You actually Believe she is capable of doing the things here character does. Again, not taking away from Alias, it's just that this series was so much better. The plots were more intriguing and didn't depend on things just working out. You could actually see how the story got to there from here, and you accepted it. The actions of the protagonists, both good and bad and the moral numbness that many of the characters developed really came through. How Nikita kept here sanity and values through all she went through is handled very well.
So, why not give it 5 stars? Simply put: the price. Not Amazon's, they give a healthy discount, but the list price set by Warner on which Amazon's price is based. At $99.98 vs. $69.98 for Alias or $59.98 for Angel (not really in this genre but a great show), even with Amazon's good pricing a lot of people are going to be put off by the cost. Too bad. They're going to miss a great entertainment. Maybe Warner will wise up and price this set more realistically so that there will be enough sales to justify getting the rest of the series out on DVD.
Still, this show is the best!
I would be up at all hours, just to see it !!!
A must for any female action lover !!!
