Watch La Femme Nikita

The television series entitled La Femme Nikita is Canadian television series with an action/drama genre. The series is based on a film that was created by Luc Besson entitled Nikita. The television series was first released in North America under USA Network, a cable channel. The series ran for five seasons before it was axed. However, in Canada, the show was shown over the air under the CTV television Network.

During the first two seasons, the series ranked as one of the most watched drama series in the criteria of basic cable television shows. To this day, La Femme Nikita is still being distributed worldwide and has fairly strong and loyal cult following.

There are some notable differences between the film and the television series. In the film originally done by Luc Besson, Nikita was portrayed as a drug addict and a juvenile delinquent who was framed of killing a policeman in cold blood while attempting to rob a pharmacy. She was then apprehended and sentenced to die through the means of lethal injection. However, the government secretly drugged her instead of a lethal injection thus faking her death. Nikita was then became a recruit by a secret government organization to become a highly trained lethal assassin.

In the television series, Nikita was innocent. Not a drug addict or a juvenile delinquent. She was just a homeless woman who happens to be at the scene of the crime when a pharmacy robbery took place. She was sentenced to death. However, she supposedly committed suicide and was brought in by secret organization. She had to become a Recruit. Otherwise, they would have let her die in the table.

Nikita then escapes the secret organization with the ultimate intention of bringing it down to the ground one mission at a time. She also gets help from the inside and recruits other helpful characters as the series progresses. The secret organization is also trying to hunt her down. During the series, it is a blur who truly is the hunter and who is the hunted.
