Spies, double crosses and Maggie Q,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nikita - Season 1 [Blu-ray]  [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
For those who remember the Luc Besson Film/Tv Series Le Femme Nikita you'll treat this series like marmite. You either love it or hate it. However it's still worth the watch.
For those that haven't seen the previous incarnations the premise of the series is around a spy that is taken into an authoritarian, all controlling, ruthless secret division of the US Intelligence Community. They take vulnerable/convicted targets and turn them into agents that either join them fully or pay the ultimate price.
Maggie Q, as the lead, is the agent that managed to get away and now fights them in a number of ways that I won't spoil. As a lead character she holds herself well having made the move from her previous supporting roles in other shows/films. In some ways the series harks back to Alias but is somewhat grittier.
Some of the story arcs are drawn out too long and some of the 'story of the episode' plot lines feel a bit forced. However, overall, it provides a more than satisfying experience.
The quality of the Blu Rays are high with no issues with the video or audio playback.
