Featurette:"Designing Nikita" a behind the scenes look at the award winning production designer, Rocco Matteo
"La Femme Nikita was the FIRST television show to ever have a strong, intelligent female as the lead. The actors are all of the highest caliber and the plots/story lines are so engaging, you'll be hooked after just one episode. If this series had been on a major network at the time it originally aired, it would have been on MUCH longer. Alias doesn't hold a candle to this show (as a matter of fact, they steal a lot of their stories from LFN). Jennifer Garner only wishes she was as believable as Peta Wilson is in this type of role. Roy Dupuis (Michael) is also an amazing actor and is HUGE in Canada. This was a show that believed it's audience to be intelligent, but can be enjoyed by everyone. It has the right mix of romance, action, intrigue, and technical gadgets so there is something for everyone."
The reason female action series exist!!!

"I've watched La Femme Nikita since the day the show started. From the very first episode, I was hooked. Peta Wilson plays the role so well, I can't wait until she breaks out on the big screen. The only sad thing is that it had to end before it really had a chance. So, from a true fan of the show, I say everyone who likes action series should check this show out. Trust me, you won't be disappointed."

I Remember Paris - Section is compromised and destroyed. This is the first time where they actually show a location, the Eiffel Tower. Therefore, Section was in Paris. The mission is retrieve the stolen files before anything can be decoded and Operations is taking it personal.
Disc Five - All Good Things - Operations is off on assignment and Michael is now in charge. Michael promotes Nikita to tactical. George puts a chess game between Michael and Madeline in action.

Any Means Necessary - Birkoff is sent into the field to break into a sneaker black hat crew. The question is has he been turned?
Three Eyed Turtle - Tensions between Operations and Madeline intensify. As do those between Birkoff and Hillenger, even after Birkoff covers for Hillenger. George looks to capitalize on the tensions.
Disc Six - Playing With Fire - Operations and Madeline are not sure if Michael and Nikita have really broken up and set a trap.
On Borrowed Time - Operations and Madeline continue their quest to stop Michael and Nikita. They send them on a mission to remove Nikita and treat her. It appears to have worked. For helping them, they send Walter to "retirement".
This is a great show with Peta Wilson and Roy Dupuis bring up the heat and head a great cast. But this year Alberta Watson as Madeline found her niche. Let's talk cold and scary.

Best Season of La Femme Nikita
Julie Lane | Georgia | 05/06/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)
"In my opinion, this is the best of all 5 seasons. All the characters have been fully developed. In Season 1 and part of Season 2, it seemed a bit like they weren't in these characters as well as later. Plus, it starts off with an incredibly emotional start. Major insight into the character of Michael, finally some of the intense emotion we all knew he had under the layers he hides under. What more can I say?"
One of the Best Series EVER

"I faitfully watch Nikita when I was in high school and when I went to college, I schedule my studies around Nikita. I made sure regardless what I was doing, I made it home to watch it. Peta and her supporting cast are awesome and I don't know why the series got cancel but I do know that I can't wait for this season to come and the rest of the seasons. I caught a case of the a$$ last year when WB change the release date on season 2, hope it doesn't happen with this one. But for those that like Alais, you'll love Nikita. I have a friend hook on it because she loves Alais and didn't think she would like it but changed her mind after the 1st season. So give it a try"
