Nikita is just another bland spy drama, an excuse to put women in skimpy outfits— Alias without a heart, Chuck without the sense of humor, and Covert Affairs without the good casting. All of this is told to us in confusingly edited flashbacks or with bland exposition. For instance, while visiting her foster father, Nikita recaps her life story, and she might as well be speaking directly to the camera. All this so that Michael Shane West , the man who trained Nikita, can catch her—and talk some more. She throws his fork at a poolside guard, splashes over to him, picks up his gun, kills another guard with it, then grabs a chair and uses it to somehow deflect bullets and take down the last guard. Why not just watch porn?

The series may have shot itself in the foot from the beginning, however, as the marketing for its first season was far from honest or indicative of what the series itself would try to do. When these people saw the pilot, the same assumptions were made but, as is often the case with people who have already made their minds up, they were missing the bigger picture. For what Nikita tried to do throughout its run with a few forgivable missteps was turn the idea of a sexualised, bad-ass female spy looking good and kicking butt entirely on its head. The show centred on a protagonist who, rather than being stuck inside Division as previous versions of her character had been, was already free and seeking revenge. With the addition of Alex, her mole inside the organisation posing as a fresh recruit, the show could tell two stories at once, with two intriguing, damaged and co-dependent female protagonists to follow through the course of the show. This way, we got to see the values of Division — teaching its recruits to be proper bikini-clad babes while at the same time teaching them to be ruthless assassins — being passed on to Alex at the same time as we saw Nikita reject them. People stopped talking about it and, slowly, its small pocket of viewers began to abandon it also.
