I've enjoyed watching this show all season. I reviewed it
it first aired, and I still agree with that same review. It is a good, exciting
action show with great characters. I can't wait to see what happens next
season! You should definitely rent the DVD if you've never seen the
show--especially if you are a fan of the past series "La Femme Nikita" or other
similar shows like Alias.
There are tons and tons of extras on this disk! I was blown away
by how many there are, and they are very long, too. I wish all TV DVD's were
this good. Besides the usual unaired scenes, there are six other features
as well. One is all about the development of the show. Another is all about how
they make the show - everything, from the action choreography, to the guns, to
the actors, the music etc. There are also four character profile features
about the main characters Nikita, Michael, Alex and Percy. It's an
exhaustive list of features.
Go rent or buy it - you'll be glad you did!

of The CW's Hit Spy Drama And Over Three Hours of Never-
Before-Seen Content, Including Blu-Ray Exclusive Content!
BURBANK, CA - When it comes to sexy assassin Nikita, looks
really do kill. Relive the action and suspense of the hit Warner Bros.
Television/The CW series' "killer" first season as Warner Home Video (WHV)
releases Nikita: The Complete First Season on Blu-Ray and DVD August 30,
2011, for SRP $69.97/$59.98. Nikita stars action heroine Maggie Q (Mission:
Impossible III, Live Free or Die Hard) as a charming but deadly secret agent
gone rouge, who now attempts to bring down the very same people who trained her:
a corrupt, secret government agency known only as Division.
Nikita - which is executive produced by Craig Silverstein (Bones,
K-Ville), David Levinson (21 Jump Street, The Commish), Danny Cannon
(CSI series, Dark Blue), McG (Chuck, Supernatural, Human Target)
and Peter Johnson (Chuck, Supernatural, Human Target) - has been hailed
by The New York Times as a "...surprisingly sophisticated and satisfying
adaptation," while the New York Post called it "fresh, terrific and
terrifically silly." Nikita: The Complete First Season, available on a
five-disc DVD and four-disc Blu-ray, features all 22 episodes of the show's
action-packed freshman year along with over three hours of never-before-seen
bonus footage including multiple featurettes, deleted scenes, gag reel, audio
commentary and a Blu-Ray exclusive featurette.
Former Division operative Nikita will stop at nothing to expose and destroy the
covert government organization that trained her to become an assassin. A force
to be reckoned with, the rogue Nikita plots against the ruthless head of
Division, Percy (Xander Berkeley - Kick-Ass, 24) his top lieutenant,
Michael (Shane West - ER, Once and Again), the nonconformist computer
genius Birkhoff (Aaron Stanford - Traveler, X-Men: The Last Stand) and
master manipulator Amanda (Melinda Clarke - The O.C., The Vampire Diaries).
With the help of Division's newest recruit Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca - Kick-Ass,
Desperate Housewives) who is living a double life as Nikita's mole, Nikita
always manages to stay one step ahead of her former bosses and is closer than
ever to bringing Division down for good. The first season also starred Tiffany
Hines (Bones) as Jaden, a new recruit who has it out for Alex, and Ashton
Holmes (The Pacific) as Thom, a new recruit who finds his loyalties
"Warner Home Video is delighted to release Nikita: The Complete First Season
