Ohh, my my my, what to say about LFN? I'm a longtime fan of the series. I saw it when it originally aired in the 90's, I believe. Back then it was a slightly gripping, slightly futuristic, slightly cavalier, somewhat seductive show. Looking back on it with going on 10 years' perspective, it still delivers a punch, it still looks technologically savvy, and it's still an awesome show.
I think it's a somewhat direct predecessor to shows like 24 and Alias. Peta Wilson certainly brought some wonderful assets to the production. It was great to see the character grow and blossom over the course of the series, as well as to take part in various intra-office intrigues...
If you like spy shows, I think this one delivers the goods in spades. The first season has its rocky spots, but even still is quite good. They were just finding their voice in the opening episodes. By the end of the first season and later seasons, they had it down pat and put on a rather good show.
Plenty of extra features on these book-style sets (the last season or two they opted for a fold-out style and slim cases, if I recall correctly).
Best acting and production ensemble ever !

"La Femme Nikita (the series) is the best TV show I have seen in years. I have taped all episodes (Season 1 - 5) and am still watching all re-runs on TV. The entire cast (Peta Wilson, Roy Dupuis, Eugene Robert Glazer, Alberta Watson, Don Franks, Matthew Ferguson) have done a tremendous job to create strong chemistry between each character. The producers, Joe Surnow and Robert Cochran (producers of "24") have created plots and turns that keep viewers on the edge of their seats. The music by Sean Callery and costumes by Laurie Drew created a hype new look for the TV series.La Femme Nikita DVD set is a must own, must see collectors' item!"
Nothing can compare...

"to Nikita, Michael, Walter, Operations, Madeline, Berkoff, and everyone else. This series was a true gem in a sea of television's usual...shows. Imaginative, inspiring, romantic, and trendy ~ one episode is all it takes to get hooked in to the world of Section One. The character development was splendid, the story lines brilliant, and the overall feel dark and sleek and sexy. It has it all. Peta Wilson is the stunningly beautiful Nikita - with long legs and a collection of sunglasses and a look that every woman wishes for. Roy Dupuis stars as Michael, the seeming cold but truly sensitive secret agent whose look is enough to melt any woman's heart. No review can truly express the brilliance which was La Femme Nikita. However, for those fans dedicated to the series, our VHS tapes have long since worn out and we live for the day this is released on DVD. And perhaps, then, a whole new generation of fans will discover the magic of LFN."
It was too good to last

"I was a fan of the French film (if you haven't seen it yet you should!) so when the USA network began promoting a series I was there for the first episode. All I can say is that I was blown away from episode one. The fact that this was a television series on a cable network, working on a next-to-nothing budget never really made a difference because the cast and the amazing writing kept you on the edge of your seat. It was an unforgettable five-season ride for the viewers.Many times I wonder if a network like Fox ("24") or ABC ("Alias") had run the series would LFN have gotten the attention and awards it deserved? Now with the release of season one on DVD everyone who missed it will be able to see why LFN was too good to last.BUY THIS DVD PACKAGE - you will not regret the purchase!!"
