La Femme Nikita was one of the best shows ever.
Rachel Johnson
The acting is very impressive, the plot lines are in depth and the shows all tie together, which always makes for a great series.
A. Rathbun
I watched every episode when it was on the air and was very sad to see it go.

I was a fan of the French film (if you haven't seen it yet you should!) so when the USA network began promoting a series I was there for the first episode.
All I can say is that I was blown away from episode one. The fact that this was a television series on a cable network, working on a next-to-nothing budget never really made a difference because the cast and the amazing writing kept you on the edge of your seat. It was an unforgettable five-season ride for the viewers.
Many times I wonder if a network like Fox ("24") or ABC ("Alias") had run the series would LFN have gotten the attention and awards it deserved?
Now with the release of season one on DVD everyone who missed it will be able to see why LFN was too good to last.
BUY THIS DVD PACKAGE - you will not regret the purchase!!

Erotic. Thrilling. Suspencful and exhilirating should be the opening tag lines to this hugely anticipated and much awaited box set from the cult hit series on from the USA network, La Femme Nikita. Fresh faces from actors like Peta Wilson, Roy DuPuis, and Matthew Ferguson are pitted against veteran actors like Eugene Robert Glazer and Alberta Watson, which adds to the series unique flavor. Where other series get lost in the same repetative formula, La Femme Nikita kept it simple, adding new plot twists and character developments continously, which gave the series its vitality and eventually longitivity! The show was a psychological chiller and action packed thriller that kept its cult fan base tuned in every Sunday night like faithful addicts. The cover design and layout of the DVD set itself actually look the like the mission profile templates in the show, which is cool. It also lists which episodes are on each disk, with a disc by disc breakdown of extra footage and commentaries (which by the way, are awesome), so the viewer can view the episodes however they choose. Lots of extras and a low price are the icing on the cake for this long anticipated box set for a series that helped define the USA networks noteriety.

Nominated for 18 Gemini Awards (which honor the English language achievements of Canadian television), La Femme Nikita established itself as a stalwart on the USA Network in the late-1990s. Based on the 1990 motion picture of the same name, La Femme Nikita changed its cast, but not its edgy characters and exciting underworld setting. A forerunner to the successful hit series Alias, the show features all the intrigue of its successor coupled with the fast-paced action of 24. An hour-long action/adventure drama series, La Femme Nikita premiered on the first day of 1997 and quickly built a loyal fan base that followed the series for five stellar seasons before its premature cancellation in Spring 2001...

La Femme Nikita follows the life of Nikita (Peta Wilson), a woman wrongfully convicted of a brutal murder. Sentenced to life in prison, a top-secret government agency known only as Section One sets its sights on the woman it believes to be a ruthless killer. Faking Nikita's suicide, they usher her out of prison to train and program her into a willing and obedient assassin. But the conspirators at Section One didn't bank on Nikita's innocence. Now, they're stuck with a bloodthirsty felon who's not as bloodthirsty as they thought. Nevertheless, Nikita (now code-named 'Josephine') must carry out the orders of her superiors or else face her own death at the hands of an organization intent on keeping its secrets from the outside world. La Femme Nikita boasts an excellent cast to compliment Nikita's numerous adventures, among them are Michael Samuelle (Roy Dupuis), Davenport (Lawrence Bayne), Seymour Birkoff (Matthew Ferguson), Walter (Don Francks), and Paul "Operations" Wolfe (Eugene Robert Glazer).

La Femme Fantastique!
This series is unique, and well worth owning on DVD. Unlike the banal witty dialog in all of today's action series...this one was quite different and pleasing. Finely emotionally nuanced so that communication takes place by a glance or a turn of the head. Astonishing use of silence, and mood, and music. This series is the antidote for all other series where everything is conveyed via dialog and nothing by character development. An organization dedicated to public good, but using evil techniques. Are its principals evil themselves or simply amoral? Characters have everything money can buy, but freedom or individual destiny. Nikita herself flourishes at Section, and is redeemed from a meaningless life on the streets..but is this redemption worth it? Does she lose herself or find herself? The moral contradictions alone are spellbinding. I recommend following director Joel Surnow's work ("24") for similar production values. Pray they continue and offer Season 2,3,4 on DVD....

Can you say FINALLY? The network have released on dvd one of the best shows that television had to offer. I began watching the show very late in the game, but luckily they ran it late every week night for from the beginning where I was able to catch it from act one scene one. When I watched all 5 seasons and the network began to run it again, they stopped showing it in between seasons where I started taping the show for my collection. The chemistry between Michael and Nikita were so intense you felt like you were drugged into seeing what was going to happen next. Every single episode was great, Season Five didn't end the way it should have, but having being rushed to complete it, is probably the reason. BUT, if you want to watch a show that has action, emotion, very little comedy and just a great overall 96 hours of stay on your couch till it is all done show, this is the one to watch...Believe, me, you will fall in love with every character at Section one whether you want to or not...You will see the bad and good side of each of them and that makes you realize they are human after all...
