Nikita : The Complete 2nd Season on DVD

As we jump into Nikita‘s 2nd season, the playing field has shifted somewhat from season 1. Nikita (Maggie Q) is still trying to throw as spanner into the workings of Division – the agency that created her. But with her inside mole Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca) now working against her, the job just got a lot harder…

Thankfully, her Division trainer Michael (Shane West) has now flipped sides, and is on the run with Nikita and Division’s ‘Black Box’ – a hard drive containing the government’s darkest secrets and conspiracies. But leading the hunt for them this time is Alex… and she knows all of Nikita’s tricks.

Nikita Season 2 ramps up the tension from season 1. Like a lot of shows, having spent most of the 1st season on stand-alone stories, this season runs with a more solid over-arching storyline. Maggie Q continues to pitch her role at just the right level, managing to display Nikita’s constant wrestle between what she wants in life and her ‘job’ without coming off as annoying.

There are some great standout episodes in this run, with the mid-season ‘Sanctuary’ and ‘Clean Sweep’ pulling out all the stops, with ‘Oversight’ showing just how far they’re willing to go to save their own skin…

The release includes a host of extras including:

  • What If? Writing the Fate of Division (featurette): Executive producer/writer Craig Silverstein and other series writers explore the impact of the show’s strong female lead characters
  • Living the Life: Maggie Q (featurette): Behind the scenes with the star
  • Episode Commentary for the Season Finale: Featuring Craig Silverstein and Carlos Coto
  • Gag Reel
  • Deleted Scenes

Buy Nikita : The Complete 2nd Season on DVD from 1st October 2012.

8/10 – Some outstanding episodes in a great season!

    As anyone viewed the deleted sceens on nikita se2 in the season finale Percy was on the phone to sum guy more or less begging for a place within their secret group anyway in the deleted scene that man who Percy was trying to impress with his evilness was talking to a mystery man on the phone, and to me it sounded like RYAN…. Any body else seen this an come to the same conclusion, is Ryan a baddy.?? As the scene was deleted from the episode but kept on the DVD I believe it was left as a teaser into season 3 without giving too much away….. I’m convinced it is Ryan what do u think

    Iv just finished my marathon watch of nikita season 2, iv got to say I’m itching for season 3 now, I absolutly love this series, in my personal opinion its well scripted, fabulous acting, the storylines of each character an the backgrounds of each character for example Amanda an Percy we learned more about them to be honest the relationship between Amanda an nikita I was half expecting it to come out that Percy an Amanda were nikitas real parents, now wouldn’t that be a shocker, I’m realy excited to see where season 3 will go now after perc-evil is dead, he was the real strength behind nikita and her need to bring down division her hatred for that man was the fuel to her fire. I just can’t wait for my next fill of this series I have realy enjoyed the storyline for me this is one of the best tv shows on my box, and I hope it continues to keep me as glued to my tv as it has done for 2 seasons now.
