Set in Hong Kong and Vancouver, the story follows Mac Ramsey and Li Ann Tsei, lovers and professional thieves who are separated while fleeing the powerful Hong Kong underworld crime lord who raised and trained them. After being imprisoned in Hong Kong, Mac is forcefully recruited into a clandestine international crime-fighting unit by a hard-nosed, menacing Director. He is teamed in Vancouver with Li Ann, who thought Mac was dead, and her new fiancé Victor Mansfield, an ex-cop who is attracted to the unorthodox methods of the agency. Conflict flares between Mac and Victor as the trio take on their assignment. They soon learn that their principal target is their foster brother Michael Tang, who had been given Li Ann as his future wife and who has vowed to hunt down the pair for their disloyalty to the "family".

Well, 9.9 points from the judges.
One of the judges is from East Germany.
East Germany doesn't exist anymore.
Well, is that why he is so pissed?

Once a Thief was a pretty good show and I was sorry to see it go off the air. It was a really good show for a Canadian show and had a excellent lineup of actors.
True, the plots were just rip-offs of many other TV shows but I think that is just part of the show itself. The slogan of the show was "The art of violence, the art of romance, the art of action" which fits it perfectly.
The show is a humorous show with a few serious overtones to make it interesting. And ANY good show does a few ripoffs of other shows, but I agree that OAT did it a bit too much.
