Jim (Christopher Lloyd) has a psychic dream that Alex (Judd Hirsch) is going to die.
20 May 2015 | by ajmarabellaSee all my reviews

There are so many great episodes of Taxi but this one has to be my favorite. These are the characters at their best. From the bizarre contents of Jim's dream to Alex being his sensible self and dismissing it as just a dream. Things get interesting when the things that Jim foresaw actually start to happen. At this point a very superstitious Louie feels he has to step in to save Alex. Of course Alex is not having any of this. A desperate Louie says to Alex "I admit your life is nothing to jump and down about but it must mean something to you." Judd Hirsch and Danny DeVito are brilliant in this episode. It all builds to a climactic and hilarious ending. You won't be disappointed.
