Editorial Reviews

This sitcom followed the life of a group of cabbies in New York. The group, employees of the Sunshine Cab Company, was made up a motley crew including Bobby (Jeff Conaway), a frustrated actor, Tony (Tony Danza), a struggling boxer, Louie (Danny DeVito), the tyranical dispatcher, and Reverend Jim (Christopher Lloyd), a spacey ex-hippie. The classic ensemble sitcom was hailed by critics and audiences alike after premiering on ABC Sept. 12, 1978. It's a vehicle with heart, as well as humor, and won three straight Emmys as Outstanding Comedy Series.

There was another review of this product which incorrectly stated that this set was the shortened syndicated version of the show, and so should be avoided. I've done a lot of research on TAXI and this set (which I own) and I can absolutely confirm that these discs are NOT the shortened syndicated versions. Each episodes runs for approximately 24:30, which is exactly how long the original episodes ran for in the late 70s/early 80s. (Syndicated episodes are edited down to 22 minutes.)

One particular avid TAXI fan assures me that there is actually EXTRA footage in some of the episodes which never made it to the original broadcast. That was actually a sweet surprise, and while these new lines aren't always essential, they are definitely welcomed. (One such instance is when Jim goes back to visit his father. Alex goes with him, and the dialogue between Jim, Alex, and his father is more than when originally first aired. There are several episodes where this is the case, some featuring a extra line or two, others featuring more.)

Unfortunately, while these are not the syndicated versions, there ARE some instances when the episodes have been edited, but these are ONLY due to music right constraints. The episodes "Elegant Iggy" and "Jim's Mario" both feature noticeable instances of the cast singing songs that have been cut, for example.

Yes, it's a shame, but rest assured that the vast majority of episodes (i.e. those without singing) are exactly as they were originally broadcast. Not to mention the fact that (aside from one or two episodes) the show looks and sounds better than it's ever been.

And for those wondering: Yes, the bittersweet comedy still holds up fantastically today. In short: You SHOULD buy this DVD set.

This review refers to the 2014 box set...

Wow! This is the set Taxi fans have been waiting for since TV series started being released on dvd. It contains all five seasons on 17 single sided discs and for the most part they are all the original broadcast episodes. There have been a few minor changes mainly to do with music licensing but don't let that put you off purchasing if you are a fan. This is the first time I've purchased Taxi for home video so I'm not 100% sure what to look for in regard to uncut episodes but considering the run time of each one I can quite confidently say it's all here. If you have any specific questions feel free to contact me via the comments below and I'll try to answer them. I've also attached a couple of pictures of the packaging so people can see what it looks like. Outstanding!

One of the best all time comedy series. The writting was always superb. The actors on this show where all top notch. This collection does not come in one box. All seasons come in separate boxes. But at least you get the complete series at a good price. Buy it. Not many TV shows where better or funnier than this one. This show is an example of where each actor was excellent in his own right, but, when you put the whole group together, the show became magic.

If you are even looking at this product you already know Taxi is one of the greatest shows ever created so no need to sell you on it. I would like to ease anyone's mind when it comes to syndication vs. Original aired versions. These are NOT the syndicated versions. The episodes run an average of 24:30 minutes. Also, the quality of the transfer is much better then I expected. Honestly it looks beautiful. I am playing it on a PS4 so it could be the up scaling but still...looks amazing. Can't comment on any special features since we haven't made it that far into the set. Plus the features aren't as important to me. What is important is having the complete show unedited and looking good. And this set delivers that. Oh and the packaging is nice. It isn't anything over the top but it looks good and the discs are housed safely.

If you are on the fence, don't be. This set is worth every penny.

If not, it was the most underated. Not to the critics, it kept winning emmys. It was a series that improved with age, going from a fine sitcom to a brilliantly acted and written examination of some wonderful characters. I bought this for my wife who had never seen the original episodes. There are at least twenty plus gems among these shows and very few are worth skipping. Enjoy!

This is a classic series. Who could forget Louie DePalma? Rev. Jim Ignatowski? Latka? Alex?

All of these characters comprise a GREAT comedy show. I'm happy that I now own the series.

My ONLY complaint is: it stated that it's "closed caption". I did not find that to be true. Wish it was. This is the only reason I did not give it the full 5 stars. The ad was a little misleading.

Great series, but buyer beware...Not as pictured...received some in cardboard boxes and others in small plastic cases....this also happened to me when I ordered "Frasier." Kind of misleading.
