Actually I can't remember to ever have watched the movie completely ... Shocked
Though I do remember scenes with Bruce Willis (probably from trailers) and it seems to be very popular amongst Sci-Fi fans.
Looks like I might have some "gap in education" here ... Wink
So I probably should check out the movie?
Anyways, the preview videos and the cast (NIKITA reunion!!! bounce ) of the series look pretty promising, so I will definitely check it out with a rather positive approach.

Yea, I think it is worth watching, The Brad Pitt character from the movie has been changed to a female on the show so that is interesting.

no need to watch the movie tscc , the story should be self contained in the tv show.

Well, we hopefully might get an exception of the rule then.
While I haven't seen the praised Battlestar Galactica series so far, I consider Caprica as excellent and Helix as well as Ascension as pretty good. Additionally they air Continuum, currently the best show besides PoI.
So even with Syfy there is hope, especially regarding the Nikita cast as a bonus.
Also the First-Nine-Minute-Preview is promising imho.
