Did you catch Isaiah's The World Today Just Nuts "The War on Social Security"?
Barry e-mailed to say he appreciated that I was attempting to get the word out on Iraq this week; however, I had forgotten all about Nikita.
He's right that I forgot all about it. Click here for Nikita's Hulu page.
I could have blogged about Nikita anytime this week and that would have been fine.
Those are two of Betty's posts and two of Kat's from this week. They had been blogging some about Charmed last week and it went over well with their readers and grabbed some new readers as well. So they made that their coverage for this week knowing it would get some new eyeballs on Iraq.
And Nikita's a popular show and I could have blogged about it instead of or along with Iraq. But I forgot.
So what's going on?
Quick recap of the first 9 episodes of season two.
Alex goes back to work for Division. (Alex is one I called the Nikita wanna-be.) How come? She knows they're deadly and crooked but they're supposedly going to help. She still thinks Sean (the son of the Congress woman) is her friend. He's not. Percy's now imprisoned at Division and Amanda's running things.
Michael and Nikita continue to attempt to bring down Division. One important plot development is when he goes to protect Cassandra in London. She's his old flame. And Nikita gets short with Seymour Birkhoff who continues to be the computer guy for her and Michael. He asks too many questions and hits on Nikita's soft spot. Cassandra's son is actually Michael's and not some king's.
With Owen's help, they get another Black Box. Birkhoff manages to get some info out of it: Nikita's father. They go to find him. His story? He fell in love with Nikita's mother while he was serving in Vietnam. Blah, blah. It's all a lie. Why? This was a Division plan that had been shelved. Then, when Nikita contacted him, it was back in play and they end up having to defend themselves from a Division assault. Nikita kills the man who is not her father. In part because he knows about Michael's son. Before she knew he wasn't her father, she told him.
Michael has to go to London again. Birkhoff uses London street cameras to track Michael and Nikita's about to complain when he picks up assassins on their trail. Nikita calls Michael to warn him and then she rushes off to London herself.
Cassandra? The royalty woman? She's a secret agent. She was supposed to tail the late king but they ended up a couple.
Nikita tells Michael that the son is his. Michael knows that nothing can be done because if Division found out about the son, they'd use the child to hurt Michael.
Ryan is a CIA agent who helped Nikita in season one. In the cliffhanger, to save her, he went up against the CIA. Now he's in prison for that. He and Nikita still contact each other. He figures out how Division gets its money when he sees a story on TV. He contacts Nikita and Division catches on. They're furious that he discovered their secrets. And he ends up dead. Nikita is a few minutes too late. She goes to Ryan's mother and tells her that he was innocent. Nikita is determined to prove Ryan's innocence.
And I'm stopping there because I think I blogged on the next episode (episode nine). I'll check that out.
But idiot of the week? Tom Hayden. His stupidity is addressed by Ava and C.I. in "TV: Tom Hayden's Animated Life" and let's remember, as over 70 people died yesterday in Baghdad alone and there's the political crisis but stupid ass drunk Tom Hayden penned "Peace Breaks Out In Iraq." What a stupid fool.
Here's C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
