"A lightning-in-a-bottle ensemble, smart, witty writing, and extraordinary characters..."
TAXI debuted in 1978 and quickly worked its way into the pantheon of sitcom classics with the help of one of the finest ensemble casts in television history. Set within the confines of a dingy parking garage, the series chronicled the ups and downs of an assortment of endearingly eccentric New York City cabbies--veteran driver Alex (Judd Hirsch), single mother Elaine (Marilu Henner), aspiring actor Bobby (Jeff Conway), struggling boxer Tony (Tony Danza), and, most indelibly, immigrant mechanic Latka (the brilliant Andy Kaufman)--all lorded over by the acid-tongued barbs of diminutive taxi dispatcher Louie De Palma (Danny DeVito). This collection features all 22 episodes from the Emmy Award-winning comedy series' debut season.
