Many great episodes
Verified purchase
I had forgotten how funny this show could be. Most of this second season was excellent. It was actually worth the price for one of the funniest scenes in the history of television, the Department of Motor Vehicle "slow down" scene with Reverend Jim

Taxi Season 2
Verified purchase
This is a 4-disc collection of Taxi season 2. Each disc is placed in its own plastic DVD case. There are no special features and no subtitles. Picture and sound quality is standard for a DVD.

Season 2 featured the inclusion of "Reverend Jim" as a regular cast member and the departure of the John Burns character as well as appearances by Rhea Perlman as "Zena" and Carol Cane as "Simka".

Would've liked to have seen a retrospective or some type of commentary from a past cast member, but I was happy to have the full season(some other TV collections only have half-a-season sets).

Danny De Vito is amazing
Verified purchase
Even though this season has the introduction of Jim, Danny De Vito is incredible this season.

I love Danny De Vito. He is very amazing and very inspirational. I'm totally amazed at how much he has been able to accomplish.

They say that the strength of a movie is determined by how well the bad guy performs his role. That makes a lot of sense with movies like Terminator, Star Trek II, the Matrix, and I'm sure there are some non-sci-fi examples, too. But, I think that Danny De Vito performs Louie perfectly. You like him and you despise him at the same time. You understand his motives and you feel sorry for him sometimes, but he's always consistent, and you always cheer when someone one-ups him.

Danny was excellent this season in the episodes with Zena, the Shut it Down episodes, and Fantasy Borough.

one of the great sitcoms
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.
