I keep watching La Femme Nikita episodes over and over and over again. It’s a freaking sickness with me. I’ve decided I need to expand my television horizons and so I’ve queued up the first disc of the first season of a couple shows I thought I might like but never caught:
- Burn Notice
- Mad Men
And so I ask you, my dear friends, are there any shows you think may take the place of my dear Nikita that I can queue on Netflix or Hulu? I like strong, smart, kick-butt, take no prisoners, women characters (Nikita, Xena, Avengers, X-Files). I like the lone hero fighting against forces much larger than himself (Fugitive, Incredible Hulk, Starman). I like partners helping each other (Starsky and Hutch, The Dukes of Hazzard, X-Files). I like men who dress up as women (Bosom Buddies). I love immortals who experience flashbacks to prior times in their long lives (Forever Knight, The Highlander). I like hokie Eastern mysticism and karate (Kung Fu). I think you get it. I want some suggestions!
Here’s a full list of my favorite shows:
La Femme Nikita, The Highlander, Wonder Woman, Misfits of Science, Kung Fu: The Legend Continues, Batman, Starman, MacGyver, The A-Team, Avengers, It Takes a Thief, Run for Your Life, The Fugitive, Incredible Hulk, Zorro, Nikita, Black Adder, Due South, Xena: Warrior Princess, The X-Files, Double Trouble, Bosom Buddies, Forever Knight, Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations, MythBusters, Travel Channel’s Man v. Food, Flight of the Conchords, The Monkees, etc…
