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.

5.0 out of 5 stars NOT the syndicated versions November 20, 2013
Verified Purchase
The most popular review of this product is unfortunately the least accurate. 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars One great series February 5, 2010
Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Series Ever? January 5, 2010
Verified Purchase
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars great show February 17, 2014
Verified Purchase
I have not opened this up yet. I was happily surprised on how quickly this arrived at my residence. I am old enough to say I watched the show TAXI when it originally was on the television. It was a great show then and I look forward to watching this in the future. It was a great cast.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great! September 30, 2010
Verified Purchase
What can I say, I love Taxi. Therefore, a box set gets 5 stars. One note, my father and I both noticed that there were missing episodes? I can't remember off the top of my head which ones, but I'm wondering if we are just crazy or if anyone else had noticed this.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as pictured... January 30, 2013

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great series! January 30, 2010
Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Don't Buy This because... June 5, 2010
I love this show however buying this is this format will cost more. At the price of $100.99 you will pay about $12 more than buying them individually. So be wary of this. Enjoy the show I certainly do.
