Pilot Review: Nikita


Nikita was one of the most-hyped new shows this season, but honestly, I was pretty underwhelmed by the pilot. And thinking back, the fact that the main message of the marketing was "Look how beautiful our cast is!" should have been a sign. And they're right! They're very pretty! And there isn't any one thing I can put my finger on as being wrong with this show. It was just kind of boring. The first half kept me interested, with the explanation of the whole program that really seems like something out of Joss Whedon, but then my attention started drifting. But I'll give it another episode or two to see if it finds its footing and hooks me.

A few things I did like:

1) Lyndsy Fonseca, all grown up!
2) Overall, the parallel plots between Nikita and Alex were nicely done.
3) I like that there are guys in the program - gets rid of some of the Dollhouse-like weirdness.
4) The reveal of the connection and communication between Nikita and Alex was nice.
5) There was a senator! I'll give a second look to shows that involve politicians.
Did any of you watch it? Will you be tuning in again tonight?

I liked it but then again, I've liked all the versions since I was dragged to the original captioned movie by a girlfriend.
