'Nikita' (The CW)
What it is: An update/continuation of "La Femme Nikita" that centers on the development of a new assassin (Maggie Q) after her predecessor goes rogue.
Why we're interested: Because there aren't enough butt-kicking heroines on television at the moment, and we think Maggie Q ("Live Free or Die Hard") would make a great one. Plus, a cast that includes Melinda Clarke, Aaron Stanford, Lyndsy Fonseca and Xander Berkeley? Yes please.
