Danny & Rhea - It Was For Real!
13 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this season-opener, "Louie De Palma" (Danny DeVito) meets "Zena" and the latter, believe-it-or-not, is smitten with Louie. As awful as that sounds to all the "Taxi" guys and gals (well, Marilu Henner) in this show, it turns out to be a very sweet romance and certainly something Louie finds difficult to handle. You see, as he reluctantly explains to Alex (after paying him money just to listen to him!), he's never dated the same woman twice. He only dealt with hookers, so dating a nice woman who cares about him freaks him out.

How Louie and Zena handle this romance is the rest of the episode, and it is very entertaining - a very good season-opener.

DeVito and Rhea Perlman (Zena) do a really nice job in here. They will keep your attention the whole way as the show switches from comedy to drama to romance and then back to the same routine. You never know what's around the corner in the next scene.

As most people know, these two got married in real life, too, several years after this episode and have stayed married for almost 28 years - a rarity in Hollywood.
