Am I the only one getting totally GEEKED about the new (old) show Nikita? Maybe. Still, be it a remake, a reboot, a reimagining, or even just a regurgitation, I'm usually always a sucker for this crap.
Now, I will admit that there really isn't much "Back in '81"-ish about this show, BUT these types of shows and movies, when done right, can take me back to the days, somewhere in '81-'86, sitting with some buddies around a kitchen table, with this rulebook,
and these dice,
playing through modules like this (or a totally ad-lib'd one),
with slick, bad@$$ dudes and chicks like this:
See, I'm a HUGE fan of the late '90s (-early '00s) La Femme Nikita,
the original French film, subtitles and all,
and even the re...make with my girl Bridget (Point of No Return),
... so this new Nikita might be a total suckfest, but I just HAVE to give it a shot. Tonight at 9 (EST), on The CW... we'll see. OK, now I'd better get back to Section, before they decide to cancel me.
