This 'remake' of the original Nikita series is good and strange in many ways. You definately need to NOT try to even compare this new Nikita to the old nikita or any of previous to the now characters. Many make that mistake and judge too fast this series because of that.

If you have an open mind and simply want to watch something 'new', you might be surprised and actually enjoy this remake series. In reality we start off when Nikita went offgrid and left Division. Division knows their operative is loose and continue their daily missions with in mind capturing/killing the only operative who escaped Division. Now in the past Nikita Series she had returned to finish with 4 seasons. So this is quite an interesting turn to how this new Nikita will manage.

A major noticeable flaw would be the character/actor of Michael. Of course we were used to someone who was as cold as ice, and had litterily no emotions. In the remake, it was quite noticeable this was not the case, he is neutral most times but sometimes shows 'emotions' such as worry and being ticked off. He actually smiles! It is a bit weird but oh well, I'll live with it.

Other characters are well played, my only complaint would be Birkoff's character, totally strange and I continually just want to smack him around.

As mentioned before I knew the "old Nikita series" so I am slightly comparing it. But even so I found the new series enjoyable to watch and sometimes entertaining. The plot and inner story that continues each episodes keeps us viewing coming back, otherwise I don't think this series would have continued for long. With that said keep an open mind, maybe you will like it and maybe you will spit on it.

It it worth watching and possibly buying, but at a reasonable price.

Initially it is hard not to be reminded of Joss Whedon's Dollhouse with lots of fit young things doing James Bond training stuff in some secret bunker while Nikita and Alex the mole disrupt the grown-ups' missions. It is, of course, all very silly but that really doesn't matter as fortunately the plot develops very quickly and you get drawn into the shadowy (though somewhat improbable) world of Division's shenanigans. Every elegantly produced episode is neatly designed around plot and character development with some fighting and stuff going bang thrown in for good measure; it is excellently written coherent, slick, flashy and fast paced top-notch entertainment. It doesn't do to think too much - just disengage those higher cognitive functions and enjoy the ride.

This is a really good show. I really love the whole spy/assassin shows. This show is a little strange to me though. I really enjoy watching it and literally watch about a disc a day, but I don't really feel that emotional attachment to this show like I do to Alias, Supernatural, etc. I usually get so involved in a show that if something emotionally tragic happens I get swept away in a tide of emotions, but not so much with this show. It's not necessarily a bad thing though, it allows me to stay focused on the storyline and try to predict what is going to happen. All together, a great show, arrive right on time.

Great first season. You totally get into the series from the first episode, unlike "La Femme Nikita" which took three seasons to get interesting. This series has it all, fast paced action, likable characters and villains you like to hate. Furthermore, Maggie Q is a delight. If you liked Alias, you will like this.

La Femme Nikita (Peta WILSON) ne peut sorir de ma memoire en terme de presence et de charme personnel.Le budget de "NIKITA est probablement superieur a celui de la serie precedente.Mais l'intensite,l'emotion manquent:NIKITA est adapte a la nouvelle gene ration qui a ete critiquee pour "etre Presque entierement depoourvue de sentimentalite"(sic). Ainsi donc nous avons l'action,mais le spectateur n'est pas implique emotionelement.La presentation "artistique" de la couverture Maggie Q. ne nous honore que d'une initiale,mais en revanche nous pouvons apprecier sans tarder la forme de ses cuisses et de ses hanches,pour bonne mesure) est provocante,mais maladroite:"Voyeurs,accourrez vite!"La qualite de l"image excede tout de don't Peta WILSON a beneficie, grace aux enormes progress de la science cinematographique.Les scenes filmees a l'exterieur sont plus nombreuses et variees que dans la serie de WILSON,qui en etait Presque entierement depourvue. Donc,action mecanique,brutale,previsible:cela rappelle les filmes de Kung FU, filmes a Hong Kong: NIKITA ne serait-elle pas destinee aux marches d'Asie, plutot qu'a ceux de lOuest ?

The first season of The CW's Nikita introduced a fresh variation on the original movie and its remake and subsequent TV series, La Femme Nikita.

This Nikita (Maggie Q) has found her way out of the corrupt, shadowy government agency that recruited her and is attempting to take it down through the use of a mole, Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca).

The show is consistently well written and the production values are top notch. The DVD package includes some tasty bonus material (including audio commentary tracks for the episodes Phoenix and One Way; Deleted Scenes; a two-part making of documentary called Inside division, and an Inside Division Profile Gallery of Nikita, Alex, Michael and Percy).

The only real disappointment in the series is that Shane West, as Michael, is no Roy Dupuis. The only real disappointment with the bonus material is that there aren't commentaries for the Pilot and Pandora (the first season finale).

Nikita, Season One: A
Bonus Features: A

Final Grade: A
