THE PLOT THUS FAR
A rogue assassin returns to take down the secret organization that trained her.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
“Nikita” ends its four year run with a quickie season that shows more gratitude than most networks are capable of giving. Following the President’s suicide, Nikita has been setup to look like she murdered the Commander-in-Chief. Nikita has gone on the run, thus ditching her friends at Division. Her pals have now decided to team up to find the people that set her up for the President’s death. It turns out that it’s an evil secret group that wants to kickstart World War III. Thus, the gang is called back into action and Maggie Q gets to work on her English for another six episodes.
The CW really cares about the fans that keep their shows alive. Whether it’s giving “Smallville” an insane amount of seasons or not cancelling “Supernatural”, this is a network that knows who keeps them afloat. While it’s not always great for ratings, I’ve learned over the last week that this show has a cult following and that it exhibits a pattern that most of the CW’s hits display. They can’t directly compete with major networks, but merchandising and DVRing keeps the shows alive. There’s nothing new about Nikita. Hell, I was done with the concept back in 1994 with “Point of No Return”. That being said, I get the appeal and I like the fact that Maggie Q was able to helm an American show for four years. Good for CW in being that progressive.
The Blu-Ray comes with a Digital HD copy and no special features. The A/V Quality is very impressive for a six episode run. The 1080p transfer is sharp and blows away the CW HD broadcast. The same goes for the bone rattling DTS-HD 5.1 master audio track. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase to fans.
