The Real TV 'Nikita'  
As a HUGELY involved fan in the original La Femme Nikita fandom, I'm posting these to remind me just WHY WB have become all the more money-grubbing by whoring out a show that had one of the most amazing  fanbases ever. You're not going to get the fans back a decade later with a crappy premise. I'll stick to my DVDs, thanks. This wasn't what we meant in 2000 about bringing the character back one last time. Do it right; call Peta and Roy.

I actually have it saved on my favorites on YT. This video is just so perfect for the series.

And you know they are. I'm sure Peta's crying with laughter. This girl isn't Anne, she isn't P, this is just laughable. And people keep talking about how good it looks. What a shame they're obviously never seen the original material of the French film or the show.

*makes the decision to rewatch season three tonight*

Wow, looks like I missed a good one! I don't know why I never watched this show. I wish I had..!! Yayy for Netflix... How long did it run?

Ran for four years and we demanded a fifth season and got it by the sheer power of the fandom. WB knew not to screw with us because we were all on the same page. I guess that's why the SV fandom makes me so sad; there's so much they could get the producers to do, yet it's so splintered that all we get is in-fighting. :(

It was waaaay before it's time. TV should still be this good.

I remember hearing about that, and how show was going to be cancelled but a last minute reprieve and another season. The fandom can be powerful if everyone wants the same thing.

Agreed! It is a sad state of affairs how low the SV fandom has fallen. The Chloe followers are all up in arms about her leaving the show. I don't think the show will turn into an LnC 'clone.' It's so much more than that.

I'm going to try and get the show from Netflix, at least the first season, anyway. That makes 2 series I need to watch this summer. Oh, boy, I need more time!! :D

And we were that. Happy memories. Hell, we even managed four conventions in Canada that were very well attended before independent fan cons got popular. It was a blast to be a part of and even better when you were the youngest in the fandom (19 when I travelled up there for the first con). I miss that.

I really don't think there's any issue of that happening. Tom has enough serious action planned already that I don't think that show will EVER be as fluffy and light of LnC. Then again, we all know how grumpy I am about that show. I think Tom takes the material a LOT more seriously. Lois and Clark's relationship is important, but there has to be a serious storyline for it to be good and it's still Clark's story. He has more than one hurdle left to go. There really should be no worries.

It's really worth it. Hell, I'd let you borrow all five seasons if I ever let them leave the house. :D
