5.0 out of 5 stars Taxi Still Entertains Nov. 15 2013
By Lava1964 TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Viewers who haven't seen Taxi before will quickly learn why it won more than its fair share of Emmys during its prime time run. The writing is sharp and witty. The characters are solid, and the humour is wonderful. Many of the writers who worked on Taxi also worked on other classic sitcoms such as Cheers and Mary Tyler Moore. I highly recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Taxi: Complete Second Season Dec 5 2004
By cyclista - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
One of the funniest series ever on TV. Danny DeVito, Andy Kaufmann, Judd Hirsch, Tony Danza, Marilu Henner and Christopher Lloyd, some of the funniest people ever. It is my pleasure to write a review for this TV series. This season has Louie not knowing what to do when he dates a "nice girl", Christopher Lloyd (Reverend Jim) starting as a regular cast member in the third episode, and Rhea Perlman, Herve Villechaize and Eric Severeid as guest stars. Marc Anthony Danza, who plays a sick child, is Tony Danza's real-life son.

10 Alex's Romance: Alex falls in love with an actress friend of Bobby's, who then gets a job in Los Angeles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great set, Misguided Amazon.com 'Reviewers' June 17 2005
By Bryce - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I was editing for television in the mid 70s and into the late 80s and the idea that any network would allow a sitcom to run longer than 25 minutes back then is absolutely rediculous. Although I never personally worked on "Taxi" I can assure you that the episodes in both season collections are the full ep's. 27 minutes long? LOL! No way!

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. And you weren't always blessed with the same amount of time each week. If ABC (or whoever) demands that you cut an extra minute off so they can promo something else, you do it. Whether or not any of that cut-before-it-could-air footage is salvaged was/is up to whoever was running the show, and it wasn't/isn't consistent from one guy to the next.

Leave it to someone who's obviously never worked in the industry to proclaim what the rules are.

Amazing.

Folks, I bought both "Taxi" sets. All are excellent, and all are about as complete as they could ever be. ABC, NBC and CBS were not letting half hour comedies run longer than 24:30 or 25:00 because ad time was - and still is - way too precious. If you're convinced that you should be seeing at least 27 minutes of material in each episode then you're kidding yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Whaaat dooees aaaa yelloooow liiiiiight meeeeaan??? Feb. 8 2005
By Buddy Gott - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Taxi's second season was one of it's best seasons, but if you were to buy it just for the episode where Reverend Jim takes his driver's license test - it would totally be worth the price!

That is, without a doubt, one of the funniest scenes ever in the history of television.

5.0 out of 5 stars Way 2 Go Paramount! June 15 2005
By Patrick74 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
The reviewer who said that this set was complete is right. Syndicated reruns never looked or sounded this good, and there are no scenes missing. Jim never got a hat as a congratulations for becoming a cab driver. He got keys to a cab and a handshake. That scene is intact in the episode I affectionately call "What Does A Yellow Light Mean?!" There might be a moment in a later episode where Jim is given a hat for some reason, but it doesn't happen in that episode. I just wish there were some interviews or outtakes... SOMETHING! Oh well, can't complain about what's here though. Season 3 comes out in September (says tvshowsondvd.com) so I can't wait!

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the great sitcoms June 2 2005
By Richard Kaplan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"Taxi" is one of the all time greats. Any show that featured Andy Kaufman's "Latka" and Chris Lloyd's "Jim Ignatowski" has to be a classic. Add the always down to earth and idealisic Alex Reiger, and of course Danny Devitos's one of a kind "Louie DePalma" and how can you go wrong?

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.
