    Nikita is just another bland spy drama, an excuse to put women in skimpy outfits--Alias without a heart, Chuck without the sense of humor, and Covert Affairs without the good casting.

    Nothing new, nothing awesome, but still a perfectly enjoyable show. I enjoy the plot lines and the action, but it's nothing too substantial. INothing new, nothing awesome, but still a perfectly enjoyable show. I enjoy the plot lines and the action, but it's nothing too substantial. I wish Nikita was more of a complex character, not written as any other generic female assassin. The characters and backstories create an interesting structure, but it's starting to be cliche with the whole Michael/Nikita relationship. Right now, this series only has potential. In later seasons, it can be potentially good or potentially bad. In my opinion, character development is essential for the future of this series. Nikita needs to be more unique, and Michael just needs to be totally rewritten to give him some depth. As of right now, I enjoy the show, but I don't think it's going to have a big life span if it follows its current direction. Full Review »

    This is just plain bad. All the usual lazy clichés and conventions of this type of program. Nothing new , no new twist or angle.This is just plain bad.

Still reading so many positive reviews of such an obviously bad program is a good way of figuring out, whose opinions not to listen to. Full Review »

    The story does not stop, there is a lot of action and quality.
    A perfect beginning and a perfect end.
    Especially Maggie q actress, performing his role very well, doing something that is hard to happen, I hope for the good side of the story.
    Nikita is a series that even not having much hearing, has great quality
