"You're one of us now," Nikita is told. But has she truly abandoned her compassionate nature and become an unquestioning member of the soulless covert organization called Section One? Or has she mastered the group's knack for deceit and cover-up so efficiently that she can beat Section at its own game? The sleek, chic and powerful adventures of the agent codenamed Josephine continue in Season Three of the intrigue-filled five-year series that stars Peta Wilson in the title role. Season three is marked by the unveiling of Michael's secret life, Nikita and Michael's romantic relationship and the further suspicion about the true nature of Section One.
Featurette:"Designing Nikita" a behind the scenes look at the award winning production designer, Rocco Matteo
Tensions between reluctant superspy Nikita (Peta Wilson) and her shadowy bosses at Section One couldn't be more rocky at the launch of La Femme Nikita's third season, and things definitely go from bad to worse. And it's not just Nikita who's having issues with her boss, Operations (Eugene Robert Glazer), but also Michael (Roy Dupuis), who experiences a major loss of power after being passed over for the Chief Strategist position ("Third Party Ripoff"), and fellow agents Walter (Don Francks) and Birkoff (Matthew Ferguson); the situation gets so bad that at one point, they consider jumping ship ("Slipping Into Darkness"). And if that's not enough complication and intrigue, Michael and Nikita's romantic inclinations finally take root, much to the consternation of Section One and Madeline (Alberta Watson), who attempts to nix their relationship, forcing the pair to meet behind her back ("Playing with Fire"). All this, plus a pair of deadly terrorist siblings ("Threshold of Pain"), and a modeling agency that fronts as a combo brothel/gladiator arena ("Hand to Hand"), adds up to another exciting season.
Season 3's six-disc set includes all 22 episodes, with commentary by Eugene Glazer on two shows--the season opener, "Looking for Michael," on which he's joined by director Jon Cassar, and the finale, "On Borrowed Time," which also features writer/production consultant Peter Lenkov. Glazer and Cassar also offer comments on a 13-minute battery of 10 deleted scenes from various episodes, while Cassar, Lenkov, and executive consultant Joel Surnow (24) are featured on an eight-minute featurette about production designer Rocco Matteo. And lest first-time viewers consider La Femme Nikita a laugh-free show, there's even a three-minute gag reel to lighten the mood. The season 3 set should be the perfect six-course meal to tide over devoted Nikita-ites--until the season 4 set, of course. --Paul Gaita

The entire season is jam packed with plot twists and turns that will keep the viewer on the edge of their seat clamoring for more!
Writing production and directing on this Canadian produced series that ran from 1997-2001 is outstanding, and holds up beautifully. Award winning costume design from Laurie Drew is still beautiful and on trend.
Watch out for Alberta Watson's new short 'do.' The actress was recovering from chemo treatments that she endured through out part of season 2 (and still worked! Brilliantly too) and her hair was now long enough to go without a wig.
Entire production team, and magnificent cast are worth ten stars.
The entire Series right through all seasons is the best series I've seen on television. I wish you would come back. I still think Peta has it!! Thank you Bill
As the season opens, the complexity of the small ensemble of the six central characters begins to unfold. We learn that Michael, smoothly portrayed by Roy Dupuis, has a family life on the "outside." Nikita begins to question the circumstances behind her recruitment and considers the possibility that it was no accident. Meanwhile, Birkoff and Walter struggle to survive within the brutal disorientation of the Section hierarchy. Throughout the season, Operations and Madeline successfully deceive everyone-including the viewers-with an exceptionally devious plot to control a greater piece of geopolitical policy.
Entertaining? You bet. Just when things appear to be clear to the viewer, it soon becomes apparent that not everything is what it seems. That is the magic of LFN. The viewer becomes almost a participant in the story because of its design to bring the audience into a well-spun web of skillful storytelling. The viewer's intelligence is never insulted in this series and should stand as an example that there is a market for higher standards in television content.
The DVD set continues to be packaged in the identical format as the two previous seasons ensuring a sharply cohesive no-nonsense approach to LFN marketing. The single flaw in this reviewer's opinion is the cover art of Pita Wilson. This particular choice of our protagonist scantily clad in a fringed black bodice belies the true nature of the Nikita character. Perhaps Warner Brothers will give credit to the entire ensemble of six by utilizing a group promo shot with the release of the season four DVD set.
