Originally, this was going to involve a lot of talking, but I decided to keep that to a minimum.
Nikita is a wonderful show, clever, interesting, good plots, and multiple women, all with fascinating interactions. Their relationships are varied and complex - the men in the show are important too, but undeniably play second seat to the two main female characters. Every woman on this show is kickass, even the guest stars. Some of them are physically tough, some of them are wily and clever, (and Nikita is undeniably both), and some of them are just women in way over their head but doing the best they can anyways, and I love that.
