This will be my first of quite a few threads here, so I am very excited to share some lost media with you guys as well as perhaps getting help finding some along the way. But without further ado, I present to you... It Takes a Thief!
This is my recording of it from the library of Canada's Shaw on Demand version. It is worth noting that while the series did conclude in 2007, it hasn't been lost the entire time since. It was made available on YouTube by user ItTakesAThief in 2013. However, these recordings are from VHS tapes, encoded with DIscovery Channel watermarks, and some recordings are also incomplete. Here is their encode of Episode 1 for comparison.
I do have some bad news about this series. While I do intend to grab and share every episode Shaw on Demand has to offer, the service currently does not have all the episodes as you can see here:
Episodes 5, 6, 8, 9 and 10 are missing from the chronology. As well, 41-80 are not available either. I plan on contacting Shaw and Investigation Discovery about this after I have secured the available episodes, but I won't hold me breath on it.
I also want to mention that it appears there are tip segments on the VHSRips that do not appear on the Shaw on Demand versions. I do not know why that is, but I'd rather that be missing that parts of the actual episode. But that's just me.
Encoding does take time so I plan to encode this and a few other series that aren't easy to find online. Just bare with me and I will eventually get all the episodes. They are available through Shaw on Demand until December 31, 2018 so there isn't an urgency to complete this immediately but I certainly will not dawdle.
This is an interesting series and I would definitely recommend it to anyone for a try. Enjoy!
