Critic Reviews for Taxi Season 1

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

Judd Hirsch, Jeff Conaway, Tony Danza, Randall Carver, Marilu Henner and Andy Kaufman are a New York cab crew in a sitcom that does produce some genuine comedy.

Even the best situation comedies generally need a season or so to find their rhythm... But Taxi somehow hit the ground running, getting off to perhaps the best start of any sitcom in the history of American television.

Sep 12, 2018 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Let's just pause for a minute and remember that somebody once convinced a network to put Andy Kaufman on the air.

Anchored by two of the most fully realized characters in television history: Marilu Henner's brassy, sensuous, privately insecure single mother, and Judd Hirsch's wry, compassionate working-class intellectual.

A show like Taxi is so rare. Not only does it have magic, it is completely under control, making one believe that week after week, we will continue to be treated to ensemble comedy performances at their near best.

Why is everyone here just a little angry?" asks the newly arrived woman cab driver. It's a good question for a perplexing yet enormously promising new series -- Taxi, a comedy of malaise for an age of the blahs.
