This show has everything- comedy, drama, romance, action, amazing cast members, and probably the best script ever! I've watched CW productions like: One Tree Hill, Gossip Girl, The Vampire Diaries, The Orginals, Teen Wolf, Beauty and the beast, Supernatural but seriously only NIKITA has one episode like a movie and this is the big plus.
Nikita is everything that Alias should have been, but wasn't.
Alias and Nikita are both about government trained female assassins who discover they are working for the bad guys, and who turn around to take them down. But there the resemblance ends.
Alias is laughably juvenile. Jennifer Garner is a beautiful woman. But when she dressed up in those outlandish undercover costumes that would stick out even at a Halloween Party, I invariably cringed.
On top of which, Alias evinced the most brainwashed, kneejerk, my country right or wrong politics since the Nazi war criminals pleaded "I was only following orders" at Nuremberg.
Nikita, by contrast, while still clearly stylized and dramatized, feels emotionally gritty and real. It is also politically far more sophisticated. It acknowledges that we aren't necessarily the good guys. With Bradley Manning in the American Gulag, and Edward Snowden on the US hit list, this is more relevant than ever.
Sad to see it get only four seasons to Alias's five.
Nikita has got to be the best show I have seen in a long time, great cast members and a very fast paced action packed show. Again, another good show will go. The Secret Circle, was another one, I was getting into, and guess what? Low ratings and it had to go. Meanwhile, what I can never, ever, understand is why the boring shows get the ratings and last so long? It baffles me. We will miss you Nikita, I looked forward to every week seeing Maggie Q and Lyndsy Fonseca, two gorgeous tough women, kicking serious ass. The show, will definitely be missed. Now I guess I'll go back to my computer on Friday nights....
I think I'm the BIGGEST nikita fan have never missed s single episode and have watched since the very first pilot episode. I am now in the process of watching it with my boyfriend before the final season comes in. I love this show it is absolutely brilliant. every episode is like a mini movie and its so sad that so many people missed out. I think that the cw did a poor job at promoting it. this sshow is similar to burn notice but it's waaaayyyyy better but somehow burn notice has survived so long. nikita keeps me on the edge of my seat screaming at the tv trying to help them out abd Get in on the action. she's bad ass with her fighting skills. I'm soooo sad to see this show go.... but I can't wait to see what the end will be. after reading up on the latest interviews with the cast and crew on season four I know it will be the best season and completely action packed. I can't wait :)(=
Yes, it's sad but true; Nikita is coming to an end with Season 4. The CW also confirmed today that the show would have a particularly short run of just six episodes.
I asked The CW's president, Mark Pedowitz, about only ordering six episodes, and he replied, "We felt that six episodes was [appropriate], being consistent again with how we've treated some long-running shows. We wanted to give the fans a Pedowitz was referring to The CW ordering shortened, final seasons of shows like One Tree Hill and Gossip Girl in the past couple of years, which wrapped those series up. Pedowitz noted that this season's Nikita ends with a cliffhanger, so the intent was to instead give the show a true ending.
Currently, Nikita doesn't have a set time on the CW's schedule, but Pedowitz said that it will likely air later in the fall, noting, "They will start production probably mid-July, as they normally do, or in August maybe a little bit later. The game plan is to use it later in the
As a huge fan of Nikita, I'm very sorry to see it go and would love if the final season was longer Gossip Girl got 11 episodes and One Tree Hill got 13. But the fact is that Nikita is lower rated than those series -- the lowest-rated series they renewed -- and it could just as easily been cancelled outright. It is still rare to see a network work as hard to give shows a proper ending as The CW has done in recent years. I'm sure we could all think of plenty of beloved shows where we'd gladly have taken an extra six episodes, where the writers knew it was time to wrap things up, than the zero episodes we got when a show was abruptly cancelled.
This has probably been the only series that i have watched episode by episode twice! and i must say that not a single episode in any season has let me down... These guys have been brilliant... The cast, the writers.. everything about this show... Perfect!!
I seriously dont know why they want to close this series down...
Maybe the demographic of CW viewers is teenagers who want love and the boring vampire diaries...
I dont see this as Nikita series fault... I think its the Channel.
They should change to another channel and give it a try... CW cannot handle such brilliance!
I just got into the show and i am a loyal fan for life. I remember the airing of the pilot and thinking it was interesting enough to watch but was turned away wondering if such a network would sugar coat
the violence that came with a plot so clear. Boy, was I wrong.
Nikita has me in tuned with everything and loving the action, the intellectual challenge
and where the characters take you. Solid program all around.
Don't go cancelling it now, you just got something right.
have watched this tv series even when Nikita was a blonde when I lived in WI. Moved to AZ and no Nikita until the last 2 or three seasons. Love the show keeps you glued to the tv. It doesn't have to come to an end It can go to another level, Nikita and Michael married, Burkoff and his girlfriend, and Alex . There are possibilities.
The thing I love about this show is the fact it never gets content with itself. Each episode brings something new to the table, new things that are always powerful and unpredictable. This isn't one of those "monster of the week" shows where they take baby steps to the overarching plotline (ie Grimm or V 2009), or are afraid to shake things up... Nikita feels like it has nothing to lose, therefore it can take chances and deliver shockers like they are no big deal. And the writing is so good that the show never turns boring. I don't really focus on acting (more on plotline), but I can't fault it anywhere. I particularly like Lindsay Fonseca... Alex isn't a second Nikita, but it could easily come off like that since Alex is Nikita's protg after all. But that doesn't happen, Alex is her own character.
This has been my #1 show since the very first episode. Other things have came up have stole my attention, but not enough ever forget to watch Nikita or put it on the backburner.
(Oh and I think Season 3 has been good. It's not the same as either 1 or 2, but it can't be. While it started a bit slow, it still had a purpose, and it was about the dynamic of the characters in their new roles (such as when Amanda realizes that she is like Nikita) and how Division is a slippery slope. I liked them and realized their purpose. I think Season 3 is just as strong as 1 and 2 now that it has picked up some steam as
I'm really hoping this show gets renewed for a season 4. If it doesn't I don't know what I would do. I've been watching this show since season 1 and while I feel like season 3 has declined a bit, I still enjoy watching it. But it definitely needs some more thought into the script.
I am invested in this show, but I feel that retreading a rift between Alex and Nikita simply based on Amanda's tricks is two steps back for a show that is trying to remain relevant and get a new season order! Alex comes off like a bitchy little kid sister who should be a lot further in her game by now. I hope they fix the direction quickly because I don't see a need to watch if it becomes another story arc of Alex vs. Nikita again, you know, we've been there and done that!
I love this show. It so addictive and I really don't understand how is it they have such low rating. I mean action, drama, comic relief, hot guys, hot girls, complex relationships, evil masterminds and smart replays.
Cw did a really bad job with the time slot and marketing of the show. I really hope they will do two thing: one pick up the show for four season and two start from the beginning in a better time slot with lot's more marketing so the show will get the credit she deserve.
Love the dynamic between Alex and Nikita the writers built this relationship amazingly
And overall the show was great built
They didn't kept too mush under the belt and didn't dwell anything till you sick of waiting.
Great show, well deserve complement and hope there will be season 4.
im kinda sad with the way last episode ended but it had to happen. glad to see that amanda still hasnt lost her touch when it comes to getting into people's heads and very interested to see the up coming alex nikita fight
