i didn't start watching until recently coz i thought it's going to be like the previous one 'La femme Nikita' which i didn't like at all. First there is no comparison between the two, Nikita is way better in it's action sequence, characters and it's plot.
one reason i hated La femme is that it focused a lot on Nikita-Michael relationship which was lame. I wasn't thrilled to the fact that Maggie Q was going to be Nikita, and Shane as Michael (i saw him as the cute guy who fall in love with a dying girl in A Walk To Remember, not as a bada** assassin) but after i gave it a try i couldn't see anyone else playing those parts.
Lady Heather as Amanda made me glued to the screen. I wasn't fund of the actress that much but when i watched her, that psycho B**** i loved every scene of her (this epi wasn't enough i need more of her) i would love to see more of her relation with Nikita, epi 11 wasn't enough, the look on Maggie when they captured her then Amanda enters the room, their dynamic was priceless. Little Berkhoff with his harry poter glasses, wonderfully played. Purcy... no comments.
the action sequences are great, true moves, some moments i could feel the hit, i have fouur fav moments:
when Alex knocked that guy in Nathan's Party awesome.
when Nikita and Alex flipped the target in epi 11 in his room, wow.
When Nikita was captured (also epi 11) after the explosion weaken the chains, how she rolled them above her head, BRILLIANT.
When Nikita and Michael were running out of the sauna, and a guy pops out, Nikita grabbed his gun and Michael finished him, great.
A lot of shows have fight scenes in it, but like this one i've never seen, thanks to Maggie of course.
the few first epis aren't as good as the rest, if you quit or haven't given it a try, think again coz this is heading to some where great especially in the end of this epi. Writers keep up the good work and keep us surprised.
the only negative thing is that i'm going to have to wait till April to watch Nikita again.
