Critic Reviews for It Takes a Thief Season 1

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1)

It Takes A Thief largely avoided outright camp, but it was still about as light-hearted as any show about the covert sabotage of socialist states could be.

Top Critic

It Takes a Thief, created by Rolanld Kibbee, carries a warm, larkish tone from the beginning, mostly conveyed by Wagner and plots that have unforeseen wrenches tossed into the works.

Dec 3, 2018 | Full Review…

The expected TV cliches of the period are all here, but the stories are witty, the dialogue is fun and Wagner, in his first television series, is youthful (although he was pushing 40), charming and gets to impersonate an array of characters.

Dec 3, 2018 | Full Review…

It Takes a Thief doesn't have that cheap, sausage factory look of so many Universal TV shows from the period, but it never approaches the authenticity of To Catch a Thief or even I Spy.
