"Once A Thief" (1996-1998)

Post by Dana Doggett on Sun Feb 13, 2011 4:18 am

Did anyone else catch Nick Lea in "Once A Thief"? I was introduced to it rather quickly once I got into the XF fandom back in 1998/99, some Krycek/NL fan posted either a picture or a quick video clip of the chandalier swinging scene, in which the camera gets a few good shots of Nick's rear end, and that sold me. Once I got to watching the episodes of the series I totally fell in love with the show, not just Nick's character (Vic), but also Mac, Li Ann, and the Director.

This is the "movie" poster. I think the "movie" is just the Pilot episode that was put out on DVD in the USA.

I adore this series! I think it was so much fun! I wish it would come out on DVD! That swinging scene is awesome! And you have to love the "Director Files' when they call Vic "Ratboy" and he says "don't call me Ratboy, Spooky" Haha!

I totally forgot about that! Ooh! We should watch "The Director Files" just for that moment alone!

Mac Ramsey (Ivan Sergei) and Li Ann Tsei (Sandine Holt) are lovers and professional thieves who are separated while fleeing the powerful Hong Kong underworld crime lord (Robert Ito) who raised and trained them. After being imprisoned in Hong Kong, Mac is recruited into an international crime-fighting unit by a hard-nosed, menacing Director (Jennifer Dale). There he is teamed with Li Ann, who had believed he was dead, and her new fiancé Victor Mansfield (Nicholas Lea), and assigned to an investigation surrounding illicit business transactions. When the mastermind behind the crooked plot is revealed, a spectacular showdown of brilliant special effects and violence ensues.

Alliance has announced plans to release John Woo's Once a Thief on June 21. The show, starring Ivan Sergei, Sandine Holt and Nicholas Lea, was based on the 1991 John Woo film starring Yun-Fat Chow. The set will include all 22 episodes from the series:

1. The Big Bang Theory
2. Rave On
3. Trial Marriage
4. Art of Death
5. Mac Daddy
6. Wang Dang Doodle
7. It Happened One Night
8. Drive, She Said
9. Jaded Love
10. Wedding Bell Blues
11. That Old Gang of Mine
12. Last Temptation of Vic
13. Mama's Boys
14. Li Ann's Choice
15. True Blue
16. Kangaroo Court
17. Little Sister
18. The Director Files
19. Shaken Not Stirred
20. Politics Of Love
21. Family Reunion (Part 1)
22. Endgame (Part 2)

We also hope, and expect, to see the TV movie that kicked off the series included in this set. Amazon.ca is currently preselling the set for $22.09, discounted from the suggested price of $25.99. Here's a look at the artwork:
