This appeared in the March 18 issue of Entertainment Weekly. I know you all will appreciate the commentary.

(I don't know if anyone posted it previously. If they did, I apologize for being redundant.)


La Femme Nikita - The Complete Second Season

Alberta Watson hones her ice-queen act as Überspy boss Madeline, Nikita negotiates a sexy star-crossed romance with co-worker Michael, and suddenly it's startlingly clear how much Jack Bauer and Sydney Bristow owe USA's cult fave about a woman who was recruited from jail (after being wrongly accused of stabbing a cop) for secret government group Section One.

In Nikita, you never know who's bad or who's good, and in the deliciously twisty season 2, that goes for the heroine herself: She starts off pretending to be a kidnapping victim and ends the season in cahoots with an ex-agent out to destroy the agency.

EXTRAS: Nikita's masterminds (executive consultant Joel Surnow, director Jon Cassar, and story editor Michael Loceff) offer cool, candid commentary, waxing rhapsodic about the love story one moment and mocking their own credibility-stretching plot liberties the next. And the deleted scenes are actually worth it, thanks to Cassar's explanatory intros - especially the episode 1 action sequence that was axed when everyone realized that the bad guys' silvery suits looked silly.

End Quote (reviewed by Jennifer Armstrong)

Hope this has been of interest to you all. KT ^!^
