Quotes

Ian Nottingham: I'm not the one you have to fear. I'm not a monster. Be aware, Sara. There are evil spirits in human form that tread on this earth. Look in mirrors, look in shadows, look inside.
Sara Pezzini: I'm sorry. I don't quite follow you. Could you be a bit more vague?

User Reviews

More women should be portrayed in action roles.
15 July 2001 | by (Knoxville, Tennessee) – See all my reviews

When La Femme Nikita was cancelled on USA, I was very upset because I enjoy seeing females in action roles. My husband told me he had seen previews of a show called Witchblade that he thought I might enjoy. I watched the movie and now I'm hooked. This show has definitely proven to be as good as Nikita, and now I don't miss her anymore. Yancy Butler does a wonderful job portraying Sara. I was disappointed to see that there are only 11 episodes in the making. Hopefully the ratings will be so high that more will follow. Thank you for giving me something to enjoy watching.
