    Enjoyed the premiere a good deal. Better then I expected. This could be a hell of an interesting series. I like the twist they have taken with this... a lot.

    Yeah, pretty strong return for a sophomore season premiere for Nikita.

    Yep. Just enough of a new dynamic to keep things fresh, while retaining the elements that worked in season one.

    You have to feel Alex is going to wake up at some point and realize she's on the wrong side.. but I think we'll get a lot of the slow slope of revenge before that happens. And frankly, that's fairly enjoyable ;)

    Good start. Very good start. Loved the confrontation between NIkita and Alex in the alleyway at the end. So much tension and anger and regret, to fuel a season's plot.


    Percy locked in the his cave. Amanda overseen by Oversight. Berghoff now a rogue, and aiding Nikita.


    Should be a fun season.

    Excellent premiere episode for season two. Glad to see Birkhoff is still around. It was so in character for him to taunt the geeks at Division during the trace attempt. Maybe not the smartest thing to do, but decidedly in character. :) The beat down that Nikita administered in the alley should give Alex plenty of motivation for season 2. Percy's cage - shades of Silence of the Lambs. Hope the ratings pick up, but in any case I am very happy that this is back and I fully expect the series to reboot again at the end of the season. - Walter.

    Solid episode this week, totally fills my "24" adrenaline-viewing quota.

    Yeah, this is a pretty good action vehicle. I pick it up on Sunday afternoons (before or after the game) and it's good fun

    After a long break, good to have it back; it's one of the few real "action" shows on TV; and it definitely works to have it. They are at least trying to keep it moving forward, and I like what they are doing with nikita's relationships

    The enemy of my enemy is my friend(?). Amanda is in over her head up to now. Nice casting of Percy's real-life wife as Alex's momma.

    I'll always think of her as Nina Myers. Apparently they got married right before 24 season 2.

    Was that Sarah Clarke from 24 ? I hardly recognised her. Will have to watch that again now
