Product Description

La Femme Nikita: The Complete Fifth Season (DVD)

Amid the ongoing battle to stay alive, Nikita realizes where her destiny lies--and, despite the her misgivings, chooses a dangerous and challenging path.



The fans brought Peta Wilson's sultry operative back for one last, brief season of La Femme Nikita, and while they remain divided on the quality and impact of its eight episodes, few will disagree that this three-disc set of the cult series' last gasp is a welcome addition to their collections. At the core of the fifth season is an attempt to answer the nagging questions posited throughout the series: Why was Nikita recruited to serve with Section One? The answer lies in the form of Mr. Jones (well-played by veteran actor Edward Woodward of The Equalizer fame), a shadowy figure with a connection to Nikita's past. Meanwhile, a holographic replica of the deceased Madeline (Alberta Watson) is developed to replace her advisory talents ("The Girl Who Wasn't There"), and Section must ferret out a mole (with suspects ranging from Operations and newcomer Walter (Don Francks) to the still-missing Michael (Roy Dupuis), in "The Evil That Men Do") within the organization that's been placed by The Collective, which by the season's conclusion (the gripping "A Time for Every Purpose"), has come very close to toppling Section One. All this, plus the future of Nikita's relationship with Michael, comes to an explosive head in this series finale set.

Supplemental features are surprisingly light in the fifth-season set; extras are limited to three deleted (or "canceled") scenes, and the teaser trailer (directed by series helmer John Cassar, and featuring some nudity) used to promote the season's debut on the Internet (It is notable for being one of the first television promotions to be filmed and aired exclusively for that format). A featurette, Season 5: Declassified, offers opinions and reminiscences on the show's conclusion from some of its behind-the-scenes personnel as well as select members of the cast. -- Paul Gaita

This final season contains 8 episodes. Like when Highlander disappeared. USA Network showed these episodes without any fanfare. It took me over a year to catch all the episodes but it was worth it. And now anyone who did not get to see all the episodes can see them in one sitting!!!!!

These episodes are more like a miniseries as they answer the questions of how Nikita was "recruited." It reveals who is behind section.

Each episode adds onto the previous upto the conclusion of the series. Although there is a cliffhanger, everything is tied up in a tidy knot and it is very satifying for devotees of the show.

Peta Wilson and Roy DuPuis again shine as the spy and lovers. Alberta Walker again gives her ice cold performance as second in command, Madeline. This seasonette, Edward Woodward makes an appearance and shows that he still has it.

A complete detailed review of this will be written when the DVD is released.

they have to milk us for the [...]first, i still think the price of these sets are a bit to high, and there isn't that many extras on the sets, if WB was smart they would repackage the sets at lower prices like Fox did with the x-files to bring in a new set of fans, chances are someone that has never heard of the show or never watched it will not spend [...]just by reading the back of the box. Nonetheless, kudos to WB for releasing the 5th season of LFN so fast. Season 5 had only 8 episodes and was only brought back for the final 8 episodes because the fans demanded it. Season 5 got mix reactions from fans, myself personally i thought season 5 had to many twists and surprises especially the Micheal twist, probably enough for a whole season but still a very awsome ending to a brilliant show that just didn't have enough promotion and big marketing to catch the eye of a larger audience i always thought airing after wrestling was a big mistake. Anyway it will always be and remain a cult fav. If your anxious to see the 5th season box cover they have it posted at [...]

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.

I was throughly dissapointed by the 'real' ending to the show, the one before fans demanded more episodes. Honestly, I was a bit confused during these last 8 episodes, but in the end I was happy to have some answers and conclusions some revelations and even more Michael and Nikita (yum!). While I'm a sucker for happy endings, I knew none could really be had in Section, so these episodes stayed true to the show. The price could be a little cheaper for only 8 episodes, but with other seasons priced at $60 + what can I expect? I still don't know why they're so expensive. If you're patient (and cheap or poor) wait for a sale, I did. This is a great series, with wonderful character development. The show, sadly, never really got off the ground floor. Still, devoted LFN fans cheered the show to 5 seasons. I think without even re-runs being showns, you have to buy it on DVD now to get your fix unless you taped all the eps. While S5 does tie up things and give a more satisfying ending, you can actually get away with only buying season 1-4 and be happy. But the whole collection is for any real fan. Also, any episode commentary is golden.
