Storyline

Section One, a clandestine anti-terrorist organization, fakes the death of a jailed, convicted murderer and, believing her twin assets of beauty and ability to kill will make her a valuable new operative, trains her in the fighting skills necessary to succeed in her new job. The new operative, code-named 'Josephine', proves to be somewhat less ruthless than planned, however, as she had been falsely convicted and never murdered anyone. Written by ahmetkozan

Trivia

For the first seasons on the French version, the Quebec broadcast had Roy Dupuis dubbing himself in a Montreal studio and was sent to Paris for final post-synchronization with the French cast. However, at one point, the actor was not available for dubbing his voice, the voice of Jean-Philippe Puymartin was heard in French for the remaining of the series. See more »

What TV Shows should be like...!
21 June 1999 | by Kyrian3See all my reviews

I think this is one of the best written shows on television today! The creators of this series are really in-tune with what a tv "series" should be like. They are not afraid to have really good character development.

But each episode is also great on its own! They have got an incredible blend of character development and action and intrigue all blended together in each episode (granted with differing amounts in each episode).

The cast is truly amazing at creating the complex relationships (so that you never see the "same old" interactions all the time). And each episode delves a little deeper into at least one character (and not just the main one or two characters, but there are six relatively majorly developed characters).
