    Has anyone else watched this show? If so, what did you think of it. Personally I'm hooked:innocent: It's kind of a bit refreshing to see a strong kick a$$ female lead and where the main story isn't a love soap opera. The fights scenes are also really good, actually great since most if not all action is done by the actors themselves and doesn't look to choreographed etc.

    I absolutely adore Maggie Q as Nikita. I think she does a kick-***, fantastic job of portraying a character that is both [email protected] and vulnerable at the same time.

    i'm following the series but i have to say i liked the Peta Wilson's version better, some episodes were really good , specially in the first seasons.

    this one is wachable at the moment , i like the two characters splitted inside and aoutside the agency thing, but the episode arguments are kinda soft at the moment,not as dark as some of the previous version were.

    Maggie Q is not bad, but the fighting scenes are not very realistic, i don't think she could take a single punch from a killer block that double her wight :innocent:

    i also liked the previous Michael better, he was misterious. this one is not charismatic

    Love this episode. Can't believe that they manage to continue multiple twists in the story line every week.

    I thought you were always talking about that Nikita show from the 90's with the blonde girl purple :rofl: then again it didn't make sense about Maggie Q and new eps :innocent:

    So this show is like a re-make of the old one or a new one but with the same concept?

    ^ In episode 1 they start off three years after Nikita escapes. Her aim in life now seems to be to take down Division.

    Here are some of the promos that they had before the series started:wink:





    Might post some others later.

    LOVE Maggie Q as Nikita. Such a kick-*** female heroine. That body of hers is insane.

    I'd seriously consider turning vegan and taking up martial arts or whatever her workout is to get a body like that.

    That said my favourite villain would have to be Amanda. She just oozes evilness whenever she's on screen. Kind of missed her in the last episode though.

    I really love this new show, NIKITA. I have watched all of the previous film and television versions.

    In terms of potential couples, do you prefer Michael & Nikita or Alex & Michael?

    To be honest I'd rather see neither. I'd rather see Alex with Thom and Nikita with Owen or some random that could help with variation in the story line to keep things interesting.

    am starting on it tomorrow seems like its amazing i remember the original Nikita was unbeatable yet vulnerable at the same time. Knowing that Melinda Clarke is a villainess is also awesome

    ONE WAY was just full of OMG moments. Michael and Nikita, Alex and Jaden had moments that really blindsided me.

    It's really sad that Nikita kind of lost Michael. I'm probably delusional in think that the last few scenes might be Michael just trying to cover up his really feelings in the presence of Percy.

    Amanda seemed to actually have some heart in this episode and I just hate Percy even more than I already did.

    I'm just really annoyed that we're going to have to wait several weeks before the next episode.

    ^I hope Michael comes to his senses and realize that Nikita saved his life because unlike Percy, she actually loves him and wants him to be safe.

    Percy said that he was not able to send any backup to help Michael kill Kasim, yet he was able to send a kill squad to kill Nikita DURING the mission? BS.
