Nikita episode 2 review

1) We are sick of the advertisements saying Nikita is a “new hit series.” Saying something is a hit when it isn’t yet insults the viewers, because it implies that we are stupid enough to go, “Oh, it’s a hit? I should watch it.” There have been two episodes. No one I know watches this show. Don’t count your chickens.
2) Watching people conduct most of their interactions through computers and cell phone conversations takes tension and humanity out of a show. It’s boring.
3) The show is called “Nikita,” not “Alex.” Why was Nikita’s role reduced to “supporting mentor” so much in this episode?

On this week’s episode of the CW’s James Bond (James Bond with only pretty people and no James), we were treated to the story of how Nikita met Alex. One year ago, Alex was a drug addict who was about to get raped by her dealers. She looked a little like Krisent Stewart playing Joan Jett. Nikita saved Alex and locked her in a sauna to get her off drugs. Then Nikita told Alex that she had a reason to live: to avenge her parents who we assume Division killed. We don’t think this backstory was interesting enough. Any 13-year-old on a fanfiction site could have written it. As for what happened in real time, the episode started out dull, and we could not get into the plot.

What’s with Shane West? He doesn’t come across as a government agent. He comes across as the guy in “A Walk to Remember.” And he always whispers when he talks, as if that makes the tone more dramatic. It doesn’t. It just means you’re a bad actor. No one whispers with a raspy voice across the room to another person.

The next episode looks better, but this one was kind of a chore to watch. We like to ENJOY television. That’s the point of all this, isn’t it?

New hit series my anus.

Episode grade- D
