ACF 796: Nikita is back tonight!!!

Well, it looks like my Maggie Q as Nikita "jones" is soon going to be satisfied. Last Thursday, Thanksgiving Day football preempted my favorite kick-ass former agent. And I think the week before that might have been a repeat.

Anyway, it'll good to see a new show tonight. I still think a bit more skin would be nice, but I've been more impressed with the stories of the more recent episodes, and I think that the action sequences have also improved somewhat. I've even started feeling more comfortable with Shane West's performance as Nikita's former handler.

I have no idea how well the show is doing in terms of the expectations of the suits at the CW network, but I hope it's at least met their hopes and goals. After all, it's the only network show I know of that has an Asian actor/actress in the lead role. (The leads in the new Hawaii Five-0 are the two white guys; Grace Chen and Daniel Dae Kim are clearly subordinate stars.) And since Maggie Q's always a pleasure to watch, I really hope the show makes it.
