- We don’t want to give too much away, especially if you haven’t seen the pilot, which runs along at a fairly rudimentary speed until throwing in a total game-changer in the final five minutes, but it’s basically Alias for the noughties… except Alias was in the noughties but you get my drift… Spooks on a bigger budget, 24 but with a hot female lead. In short, it’s awesome.
- In addition to all the action, there’s a few romantic subplots scattered here and there, plus just enough tantalising hints of backstory thrown at us each episode to make us hungry for more.
- But if it’s a high-kicking, hard-punching forty minutes of fast-paced intrigue and action you’re up for, Nikita might be just your bag. With a bomb in it. But your bag nonetheless.
