it's on the CW Thursday nights at 9pm.  I watched the first episode and thought it was decent.  it's based off the La Femme Nikita movie (and Point of No Return too), and Nikita has decided to take down the Division that trained here.  It's got Maggie Q in it as Nikita, and she looks very nice in her undies. 

it looks like it has potential if it manages to survive.  anyone else watching it?

Is she using the CIA to do it? I hope there is a quirky tech guru that makes her lots of neat gadgets. Oh, and does she have any relationship issues with a family member, maybe her father?

I'm watching it. I think it has a lot of potential. The first episode already had a surprise plot twist in it, which I didn't expect. There's some klunky dialog occasionally, and a few characters (like the angry black girl) are pretty cliched, but I'll keep watching to see where it goes.

Of course, a big reason to watch it is MaggieQ. Yum. drool

about this twist:

Spoiler for Hiden:
at first I thought the tech guy had indeed turned, and then they show who it was and that really explained her time away.

Hey look! An Asian on a lead role on TV!

Might as well watch it while it lasts. Then again, she's Caucasian looking enough...  icon_twisted

But seriously, Maggie Q is someone I've been hoping to see in a lead role on something so she can show her acting chops. I'll check this out.

I supported Nikita by starting a whole thread for it on OO... it got like four replies and has fallen to the second page already. frown

huhm, thought there was more current talk about this show, must have been in another thread.  Anyways, 1 episode left.  This shortened final season has been decent, but some stuff they put in seemed kind of out of the blue.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Seymour's sudden backstory seemed kind of abrupt, seems like something they should have worked in during the previous season.  I have a feeling it would have been gradually introduced if they had more episodes this season.

Alex and Owen Sam's sudden relationship potential seems kind of off, especially with her losing Sean the way she did.

RIP Ryan.  Kinda figured he'd be the one to go if they killed off a character.

Spoiler for Hiden:

it feels like they have a lot still to cover in the finale, but at least they knew it was coming so they can hopefully do it properly.

I could swear I had a started a thread for it somewhere but maybe not.  I'm always perplexed at how poor the show's ratings are relative to how much I enjoy it, not to mention the skimpiness of Maggie Q's outfits.  I guess hot skinny Asian chicks in bikinis and lingerie are no longer good for ratings.  Or maybe she was just too kickass and intimidating for the general populace?  I'm also amazed it kept getting picked up but was thankful each season.  Bummed it was for this shortened finale season, but it's still better than nothing.
