Product Description

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.

ABC unceremoniously canceled Taxi after four Emmy Award-winning seasons, but NBC flagged it down for one last joy ride around the block. This final season, though ratings challenged, is no clunker. Judd Hirsch as salt-of-the-earth cabbie Alex Reiger, Christopher Lloyd as burnout Jim, and Carol Kane, joining the cast as Latka's not-quite-assimilated wife, Simka, each won an Emmy. The season's first episode is a wonderful reintroduction to the dream team ensemble as Latka (Andy Kaufman) and Simka stage a matchmaking "schloogel" for the Sunshine Cab Company. A two-part "Taxi Celebration" is an enjoyable ride down memory lane with noteworthy scenes from some benchmark episodes, including "Blind Date," "Reverend Jim: A Space Odyssey," and "Elaine's Strange Triangle." By its fifth season, Taxi had lost some of its edge. In earlier seasons, the writers deftly combined comedy and pathos. This season, they drive it into the ground as Alex cares for his beloved but aged dog in "Alex's Old Buddy," Elaine (Marilu Henner) falls in love with a monk who must return to his order in "Elaine and the Monk," Tony (Tony Danza) is reunited with his absentee father in "Travels with My Dad," Jim fights to keep his inheritance in "Jim's Inheritance," and Louie's lost love (guest star Rhea Pearlman) gets married in "Zena's Honeymoon." But most of the episodes have priceless, play-it-again moments, among them Louie "charming" his literally blind date ("Before you know it, she'll be taking me home to meet the dog") in "Love Un-American Style"; Simka attempting to seduce Alex in the two-part "Sceneskees from a Marriage"; and guest star Penny Marshall's disastrous interview with a snooty condo board in "Louie Moves Uptown." Long overdue is an episode devoted to Louie's loyal assistant Jeff (J. Alan Thomas), who takes the fall when one of Louie's scams is discovered. DeVito says it best in his introduction to "A Taxi Celebration": "If you watched Taxi for five years, you're in for some great memories. If you haven't… you dirty, miserable…." --Donald Liebenson

TAXI is one of the classic ensemble comedies ever to surface on the small screen. The writing, directing and acting were always superb! The great cast introduced us to Danny DeVito, Tony Danza, Christopher Lloyd, Marilu Henner, Andy Kaufman, Carol Kane and brought us another great series with Judd Hirsch. Season five has always been special to me because of its poignancy. Who can forget episodes like: "Louie and the Blind Girl", "Alex's Old Buddy"' and "Jim's Inheritance"? The only reason that I am not giving this five stars is because it is slightly edited. Seems CBS/Paramount does not like to pay for music rights. We really saw this in season 4 where "Vienna Waits" had a completely different score. Season 5 is not as bad: I only noticed one cut: The Piano bar scene in episode "JIM'S MARIO'S". Believe it or not, all of the other original music (including "You Are The Sunshine Of My Life" from JIM'S INHERITANCE and "Cheek to Cheek" from ELAINE AND THE MONK) is still intact. All in all, Season Five is a triumph! It took a four-year wait for the remaining seasons, but we finally got the entire series of TAXI: A True Celebraition!

Although this is an aborted season due to the two retrospective episodes, this season - the final season, and the one which aired on NBC after it was cancelled after four seasons on ABC, pairs a whole lot of funny moments with many poignant ones as well. The episode in which Alex tries to give his dog a great send off before his imminent demise will put a lump in your throat and tears in your eyes. The episode where Louie's blind girlfriend is about to regain her sight looks into the soul of the scoundrel Louie as he ponders his deepest insecurities about his appearance. This may be one of Danny DeVito's finest moments. Plenty of brilliant moments abound making season 5 a real winner, and definitely worth the wait.

Taxi is a great show with both humor and heart, and the fifth season may be the best example of this. One of the best sitcoms ever. Kudos to CBS/Paramount for releasing all 5 seasons and not leaving Taxi fans hanging.

Taxi was one of the best sit-coms to ever air on TV without a doubt. The series ending was bitter sweet as television lost a fantastic show but soon gained another (Cheers.) A lot of the producers and writers from Cheers went on to create classic episodes and won numerous Emmy Awards throughout the 80s, but they cut their teeth on Taxi. Reverend Jim played by Christopher Lloyd has to be one of the funniest, most original and realized characters to ever grace the small screen, while Latka was Andy Kaufman's comedic tour de force. A pity the show did not go longer, but maybe it's just as well, it never wore out its welcome or ran out of gas like others of its Ilk (Happy Days, Different Strokes etc.)

This is a show that was GENIUS. Granted, it is about cabdrivers. But where the writers took the characters was amazing. Not only did we get inventive humor, we got strong characters with range and depth. Always loved Taxi, ALWAYS!!!!!!!

I absolutely enjoyed watching Taxi when it was being shown on television, and now I have all 4 Seasons with every single episode. I would have to say that one of the best and funniest episodes of all, is when Jim goes to the DMV to get a drivers license. This is the art of comedy at it's best. Whaaaat does a yellllooooww light mean? Or when Louis goes to meet his girl friends parents for the first time and has his life threatened by his girl friends mother. Then there is the episode where Louis makes a deal with God when he is in the hospital where he promises to be a kind lovable person, then goes nuts at the end, is another great, very well written and very funny story. I have yet to see all the episodes on the final DVDs that I received recently, but for sure my friends and I will be watching soon what is on there and enjoy the good laughs thanks to these funny artists doing their comedy. If you enjoyed watching Taxi, then you will enjoy owning these episodes on DVD. It was a real bummer when Taxi was cancelled. That was a mistake.

This show ended way too early. This season is full of great episodes. Every episode is full of emotion. Many times you'll be crying while you are watching and then you will start laughing at the same time. Such a great series that I definitely didn't appreciate as much as I should have 20 years ago. Just a great TV show with great characters and great writing.

The product came quickly and in new condition. As with the rest of the Taxi series it's terrific fun and poignant. The only negative is that this is the last season. If only it could have continued!
