Why 'Nikita' Is The Best Show You're Not Watching

Laura Prudom | Posted 06.20.2012 | TV
Laura Prudom

There are so few intelligent, female-led dramas on TV these days that "Nikita" should serve as an example to other networks as well as its audience, because we desperately need this show, and others like it, to keep on kicking ass for years to come.

The beauty of this episode was that it truly provided a logical (if not justifiable) reason for Regina's hatred of Snow White, while making The Evil Queen sympathetic for the first time. And we also witnessed true evil being born.

'Nikita': Amanda And Nikita Revisit The Past In 'Power'

When a show is as consistently compelling as "Nikita," it's easy to take each well-crafted episode for granted, but "Power" once again upped the ante for all our characters without wasting a minute on meaningless filler material.

"Arising" did feature some much-needed character development, allowing the divisive characters of Cassandra and Max to be removed from the chess board without going the lazy route of simply killing them off.

Laura Prudom

"Nikita" has made a habit of coming back from its breaks with a bang, and the March 16 episode, "Doublecross," more than lived up to the promise of its title with a series of satisfying twists. It was pleasing to see the show ably maintain the momentum it established in the last few episodes, as if its month-long hiatus never happened.

'Nikita' Recap: Nikita's Past Comes Back To Haunt Her In 'Rogue'

Laura Prudom | Posted 04.12.2012 | TV
Laura Prudom

Was this week's taut, labyrinthine installment of "Nikita" the standout of Season 2 so far? Sorry, "Fair Trade," I think "Rogue" just usurped your position at the top of the pile, as the episode combined all the best elements of our favorite spy drama: juicy backstory, dastardly double-crossing, well-paced plotting and one hell of a curveball ending.
