‘Nikita’ honestly is definitely in my top 5 of all time favorite TV series I have seen and completed. Many would probably be surprised because the dominant character is a women who is very much the most powerful person on the show. We are all programmed to believe women can not take on this role and in the media men are always portrayed as the dominant character. Well I am here to tell you that Nikita is different.
‘Nikita’ is a fast moving, action packed series that garners glimpses of the back-stories and personalities of pertinent characters. When she was a deeply troubled teenager, Nikita was rescued from death row by a secret U.S. agency known only as Division, who faked her execution and told her she was being given a second chance to start a new life and serve her country. What they didn’t tell her was that she was being trained as a spy and assassin. The series starts at 100mph and the ride only gets more intense from there. And in addition to the action element, the writing, direction and cast do an exemplary job of really making the viewer care about the primary characters (whether you love or hate them). Nikita was betrayed by the only people she thought she could trust, but now she is seeking retribution and making it clear to her former bosses that she will stop at nothing to expose and destroy their covert operation. You all should check it out!
