Don't Quite While You're a Head
27 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was never a huge Taxi fan, but I loved the character of Reverend Jim. Christopher Lloyd is a genius actor and director. In this episode he plays an unbalanced sociopathic English teacher, who terrorizes his students, embarrassing them, failing them. One day he points out to the kids that it is sex that is the destructive force that bring an end to good people. He speaks specifically of Shakespeare's "Macbeth" and how Lady Macbeth used her wiles to destroy her husband. In the class is an irresponsible young man who is fixated on a pretty young woman played by Mary Stuart Masterson. She talks him into putting a curse on Lloyd. She has played a record album backwards and it gives the formula for accomplishing this. The two end up in a graveyard, finding all the necessary accoutrements, even though he is scared out of his mind). They mix it up (there are numerous humorous scenes along the way), it explodes, and they head for the teacher's house. It's no secret this isn't going to go as planned. What follows is absolutely delightful black comedy.
