Three of Taxi's regular cast all starred in an Oscar winner for Best Picture. Danny Devito and Christopher Lloyd starred in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest; which is the Best Picture winner for 1975. Judd Hirsch starred in Ordinary People; which is the Best Picture Oscar winner for 1980. And Danny Devito starred in Terms of Endearment, which is the Best Picture Oscar winner for 1983. See more »
Taxi was a creative show that will be remembered for years to come. Each episode featured huge laughs that make your sides hurt, due in no small part to Christopher Lloyd. My favorite episode is the one where Jim takes the test to be a driver. The cast had a unique chemistry that you don't see on shows these days. Taxi isn't television, it's TELEVISION.
