Crazy credits Though no single character was the main star, Judd Hirsch received a pre title credit. He only took the role of Reiger under this condition. Alternate versions A few episodes soundtracks used copyrighted songs by artists not affiliated with the show, which had to be removed from the DVD release.

Review Top review one of my top 5 favorite American comedies- Season 1 The first season of this classic sitcom started off on the ground running as we re introduced to the down-trodden, brow-beaten denizen taxi drivers of the Sunshine Cab Company, the advice giving Alex Reirger (Judd Hirsh), failed boxer Tony Banta (Tony Danza, failed actor Bobby Wheeler (Jeff Conaway), new immigrant, Latka (superbly played by Andy Kaufman) as well as new cab drivers Elaine and John (Marilu Henner and Randall Carver respectively), and cranky, hateful boss Louie De Palma (Dsnny DeVito, in the role of his career). These people are life losers, but the writing is such that they are NEVER treated as such. All of the characters were highly relatable and one couldn t help but feel empathetic to each of them. We re laughing with these guys, not at them. And it s a very funny, poignant show. Guest stars this season included Former Welterweight Champion of the World Carlos Palomino, Tom Selleck, Jeffrey Tambor, Martin Mull, and Suzanne Kent in a very memorable part as Alex s blind date, the overweight self-pitying Angela who would return next season in a surprising way. The first Season of Taxi was a few outstanding shows, a few funny ones, but not a clunker in the bunch. And you have no choice but to love that theme song.
