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.

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 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!

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.

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.

Love the series and loved the low price (when purchased) but it is not exactly as pictured. The set is a mix of plastic cases and boxes shrink wrapped together (and not evenly either ha ha). If you like your sets to be the same dont buy this. I usually like them to match but for what I paid I'll deal. As long as they play it's all good!

Since the majority of DVDs and BRDs come with closed captions for the hearing impaired I have come to expect that as the norm. This series does not have closed captions.

It would be helpful to list whether CC is available or not in the product description.

As for the series it is as humorous and well acted as I remember and for that it still rates 5 stars.

Dude this is a great show,i remember watching this show when i was about 5 or 6 years old and it was still on certian television channels and i remember it being funny.I missed the fact that it was never on,so when i saw the complete series was available i scooped it up and i'm glad i did. My dad grew up with this cuz he was about my age when this was on tv if not just a little older and he loves it.I have to agree it's truly one of those shows that defined the generation with it's morals and the series shows alot of progression not only with the times but the style and the drug humor(it's hilarious) i really get a kick out of Louie DePalma the dispatcher played by Danny DeVito and his wife Rhea Perlman is in some of the episodes.Andy Kaufman was a funny character as Latka and reverend Jim the acid head played by Christopher Lloyd Judd Hirsch and Marilu Henner seem to be the main focus on alot of the shows but they all get there time to shine and time to make us laugh.You get to see Al Lewis in one of the episodes as well as Martin Short and others i can't remember off the top of my head but between this and the complete Odd Couple series as well as this my dad had plenty of time to watch these shows that he enjoyed when he was younger.He is truly happy and satisfied with these collections.We sit and watch em together and crack up laughing. This is one of the better comedy sitcoms that i feel was way ahead of it's time with comedy.Great series if you like it and know it go pick it up.
