I love how these amazon "reviews" are supposed to inform other buyers about product, but end up getting used for various misguided rants by people who don't know what they're saying. I would bet dollars to donuts that the person who has gotten him or herself worked up believing that they've been ripped off from missing Louie DePalma dialogue is responsible for these multiple postings by allegedly different people warning the entire world that Jim's hat and 3 extra minutes have been snatched from us in some diabolical plot to rip off consumers.
Furthermore, not every series stuck to the "always must have a tag scene" rule. "Taxi" sometimes did and sometimes didn't have a tag scene before the closing credits. The Norman Lear shows were like that as well (had the pleasure of working for that crowd back in the day, incidentally). And sometimes shows had to be cut for time before they even aired for the first time. "Taxi" had a rough look to it and often in their first-run broadcasts the episodes WOULD look like something was cut. Well, that's because it WAS. But it landed on the cutting room floor long before the public had the pleasure of seeing it for the first time.
Don't know how much more plainly I can spell this out, but if CBS (or whoever) dictates that you can only run 24:35, for example, and you have a total running time of 26:17, then you won't be going home until you've shaved off a total of 1:48.Read more ›
That is, without a doubt, one of the funniest scenes ever in the history of television.
Ensemble comedies with smart writing are rare. "The Mary Tyler Moore Show". "Cheers" "Seinfeld" and "Frasier" come to mind to add to "Taxi". The show was never a huge hit,but had respectable ratings. Some of the shows turned downright bizarre near the end of it's run.
I thought Season 3 would be out already. Whats the delay? It would be nice to have some extras, but I suppose this is not the case.
