Summary of "The Complete 3rd Season - Nikita is like an old friend":
Sitting down to watch a season of La Femme Nikita is like spending time with an old friend. I always look forward to these sets because it's a chance for me to revisit a show I enjoyed watching on TV. Sure, I love discovering new shows on DVD, but there's comfort in going back to something I've already seen. I love the characters, the stories, the directing and the production design. I like remembering bits and pieces of the storylines, and then having the gaps filled in (trust me, there are lots of gaps in my memory). It's also nice to know that my memories of the show being good still stand up, even after all these years. started a panic with fans when they pulled the set off their site a week before it was to be released. I received about a dozen emails asking me whether there was a problem with the set; I think everyone had flashbacks of the music issue with season 2. Thankfully there wasn't an error, Amazon just messed up.

There are just two seasons of the show left to be released, and the fifth one is a lot shorter (8 episodes). I'll cross my fingers and hope we see them both in 2006 (no, Warner hasn't indicated anything of the sort to me, but I can hope, can't I?). (read entire review)

Summary of "The Complete 2nd Season - Whoohoo, they released it!":
La Femme Nikita is the set that almost never was. Warner Bros sent out a notice shortly before the planned July, 2004 release telling retailers the set was postponed, with now new date, and no explanation why. We made some calls and found out is was due to an issue with licensing some music, actually, an issue licensing a single song. Some retailers put the set out for sale, and some fans managed to snag copies, much to the frustration of Warner Bros. They hit a snag licensing the song (no idea which one), and couldn't legally sell it. The set sat in warehouses while Warner tried to secure the license for the single song, but they were forced to replace it when they weren't able to get the rights for the DVD. I gather all this cost them a lot of money, since they've had to press 1 set, promote it, recall it, replace a disc and then promote it again. I understand the first season wasn't a huge seller for them, so this hassle is obviously eating into what little money they were making in the first place. Some of you may wonder why the discs were all finished and ready to be released if a song wasn't licensed yet; this can be quite common. I know of a set that didn't have a signed deal in place a week before it was to be released! Those lawyers seem to wait until the last possible moment some days.

I'm impressed that Warner Bros was willing to go through the trouble to release this set, and I've heard rumors we may see season 3 later this year. This is still one of my favorite shows, and I love watching it on DVD. I ran into Jon Cassar when in was in LA, but I foolishly forgot to talk to him about La Femme Nikita. I found out he's Canadian, which now seems extremely obvious to me, and discovered he worked in Edmonton shooting Jake and the Kid, one of the few productions we've had shoot in the area. Jon's a really nice guy, and I enjoyed chatting to him. Strangely enough I "saw" Peta Wilson a few hours later. I say I "saw" her because it was just out of the corner of my eye while I was talking with some friends, and I didn't realize it was her until she was gone. She came up and kissed a person I know from a PR firm, and he said, "that was Peta Wilson" after she had already left. I don't think he was ready for me yelling, "YOU SHOULD HAVE TOLD ME THAT WAS HER!!" because he took a few steps back. Umm...sorry Chris! Anyway, those are my La Femme Nikita stories for this review; don't count on any for season 3 though.

I love Alias, but La Femme Nikita is the original ass-kicking female spy. I dig this show, and if you've made it this far in the review then you probably dig it too. Let's cross our fingers and hope that we'll see season 3 later this year! And a big "THANKS" to Warner Bros for working out the problems with the set and delivering it to the fans.

Summary of "The Complete 1st Season - Nikita = Hot!!":
I rarely talk about the shows that I want to see out on DVD, but this is one of them. I really enjoyed the show when it was on the air, but due to scheduling changes on the network that aired it in Canada I never saw the complete series. It's wonderful to have this show on DVD, and it's nice to know that Warner Bros. listens to their customers. Hopefully they can sell enough sets to warrant releasing the second season, and beyond. If you're a fan of Alias, or other spy shows, you'll love La Femme Nikita. Pick it up. (read entire review)
