This final "season," though short, was put together because fans demanded that the show be returned to the air and tie up all hte loose ends left after Season 4. And it was done beautifully. It may only be 8 episodes, but for any La Femme Nikita fans, it's a must-have.
I won't spoil it for you. Just know that it's good. Very good (as always). Of course, you should buy and watch all the prior seasons FIRST. But that goes without saying to the LFN fan.
I'm sure the fans would have liked the last season to be a full season, but what we got was good enough, and tied up all the loose ends. As well as they can be tied up in the Section universe.
I'm certain the video quality will be of the usually high caliber, as well sa audio. And I'm sure there will be extra features, as usual...
Addendum: Having now received the S5 release, I can comment further that the packaging is slightly different than the prior 4 (attractive book-format) releases. However, the slim cases aren't entirely without their merits. Episodes are listed on the outside slip covers to the thin packs.
Video is excellent as always. There appear to be plenty of deleted scenes (I've gotten into the first disc so far), and I'll assume there will be commentary tracks on some of the other discs as with prior releases.
Again, love the show and it stands up well over time. Frankly, it was ahead of its time, presaging shows like Alias an 24. Can't wait to dive into the rest of the last season! Well worth every penny to own the complete LFN series.
