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.

4.0 out of 5 stars The unkindest cuts, indeed October 11, 2009
As another reviewer has written, there's a missing scene in one episode where Jim plays the piano. And yes, you can see a snippet of that scene in the closing credits. I suspect it's because there's music involved and the DVD producers didn't want to pay for the rights. I'm also almost 100 percent certain that another snippet is missing in the episode where Louie catches a mouse and releases it off-camera at the end of the episode. I could swear that episode ends with him singing just a few words from "Born Free." The most-notorious DVD butchery was the WKRP DVD set, which I never bought. This set is not nearly as bad because so little music is used apart from Bob James' wonderful score. I haven't finished watching Season Four yet. I'm hoping these two cheap cuts are the extent of the edits. Be warned.

3.0 out of 5 stars Andy Kaufman begins his fall and hurts a great show October 13, 2009
Verified Purchase
Others have commented about the edits in this 4th edition of the Taxi series, so I won't waste time with that. I will say that this is once one of my absolute favorite shows and I will be buying Season 5 without hesitation. However, thisi particular season is one of the weakest of the show's run. The ratings slid enough that it was cancelled and good fortune got it picked up by a rival network for the final season. The big difference, as fans learned in later years, was the effect that Andy Kaufman had on the show.

What made Taxi so endearing was the creation of brilliant characters that were definitely New York personalities. It launched long careers for most of the cast. Christopher Lloyd, Danny Devito, Tony Danza, and company first came to national prominence because of their work on this show and the ensemble was exceptional. Unfortunately, the sudden fame had a negative impact on Andy Kaufman. After years toiling on the New York comedy scene and several memorable Saturday Night Live appearances, Andy was suddenly a superstar because of his Latka character. Sometimes a comic with a large repertoire of characters becomes resentful when one of his creations becomes more popular than the others. Robin Williams would regularly insult people in his audience who requested he do his Mork character, for example. Because he had talent in so many other areas, Robin moved past that period and Mork is now just a footnote in a long career. Sadly, Andy Kaufman didn't handle Latka's popularity nearly as well.

By the middle of the third season, Kaufman was becoming increasingly difficult to work with on set. What had begun as an occasional annoyance during the filming of season 3, had grown into open warfare.

5.0 out of 5 stars JUST WHEN ALL HOPE WAS LOST........ July 1, 2009
Verified Purchase
Four years of frustration (and bitterness towards Paramount Home Video) were lifted when I learned Season 4 of Taxi is being released next September 22. My daily routine of checking for any sign of Taxi on [...] will finally have to come to an end.
At last we'll be able to watch such classic episodes as the one where Louie's mother marries the Japanese guy (Louie: "she'll never adjust !"); the one where Elaine pokes Louie's eye for spying her while changing (Elaine: "why are you crying only on that one eye ?" Louie: "It's not the end of the world "); the one where Louie takes revenge on Ted Danson for ruining Elaines hair (Alex: "you're better than that Elaine", Louie: "She may be better than that, I'm not"). And how about Latka's wedding, Jim forecasting the TV ratings, etc., etc., etc.?
I have to think Season 5 won't be that far off, at least not until 2013 or something like that. That's the season Taxi switched from ABC to NBC and for whatever reason I never got to see a single episode.
Plenty to look forward to, that' for sure.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ominously negative start October 8, 2009
Verified Purchase
I've wanted this season above all the others for the single episode: "Elegant Iggy". Very briefly, this was the episode where Elaine and Jim attend two functions, and the potential for disaster is frightfully high in Elaine's mind. It was presented , on this latest DVD release, WITHOUT the final scene where Jim plays piano and sings with Nina Van Pallandt. Why they would do this I have no idea. Perhaps the manufacturers of this set don't have access to the original film, I don't know. But I do know , after seeing one episode, that I've been shortchanged. If you doubt my claim, watch the closing credits of this episode and you'll see Jim and the character played by Nina at the piano. For shame!

5.0 out of 5 stars IT'S ABOUT TIME! September 16, 2009
We have all been waiting years for the release of "Taxi" Season 4! It was unfortunate that politics became involved in its release. This show is absolutely one of the funniest I have ever seen and what's even better - it's timeless! As a pe-teen, I waited anxiously every week for the newest episode..This show was so well written and just a cab full of fun...Timeless..I believe it is this season that has the episode where Rev. Jim loses his Dad. His dad leaves Jim his suit and in the suit pocket is a tape of Stevie Wonder's "You Are the Sunshine of My Life". As funny a show as 'Taxi" was, this episode made me cry so. Then my Dad past away a couple of years ago and playing on the radio one day was that Stevie Wonder song. It made me smile so because I thought of Rev. Jim's dad and my dad and I said.."I know how Jim felt". Dad was my sunshine..:-)
