    One of my five favorite sitcoms, and better than Cheers, IMO. Only five seasons, so it never jumped the shark - it went out with dignity. Lots of memorable episodes and quotable lines. Who else is with me? Come on, Paramount!

    Jim: Hey, Alex--You know the really great thing about television? If something important happens, anywhere in the world, night or day... you can always change the channel.

    Bobby: Mental illness or narcotic addiction?
    Jim: Now that's a tough choice...

    Louie: Whenever I hear the word "marriage," I say, "Check, please!"

    Alex: Jim, when are you finally going to have some pride and stand up for yourself?
    Jim: August!

    Zena: You got an attitude problem, you got a personality problem, you got a sensitivity problem, you got an emotional problem, you got a maturity problem, you got a sexual problem . . .
    Louie: What do you mean?
    Zena: That's all you think about!
    Louie: And that's the problem?
    Zena: Yeah.
    Louie: Whew!

    Louie: Ignatowski! Where have you been all week?
    Jim: I don't work weekends.
    Louie: You been gone nine days!
    Jim: Yeah . . .
    Tony: Jim, weekends are only two days.
    Jim: Oh, I thought we'd switched to the metric system.

    Elaine: Dress is optional . . . He means how we dress, not if we dress, right?
    Alex: No, I don't think so.
    Elaine: Why?
    Alex: [showing Elaine his invitation] Yours is the only one that says that.

    Jim: I went to Woodstock.
    Bobby: Oh yeah? You went to Woodstock?
    Jim: Yep, half a million people gathered together in peace and harmony, grooving to Joni and The Who...hey, you know, if I hadn't gone, there would have only been 499,999 people...lucky for them I went.

    Jim: I don't know what's right, I don't know what's wrong - I don't even know what's going on.

    I would definetly be in line to pick this up.

    My favorite and most memorable episode was the one where they have the DMV test.

    " What does a yellow light mean? "

    "Slow down"

    " Whaaaat does a yellooooow light meeaaan?"

    Jim is the man

    I definitely would buy it.

    I think some of Paramount's reluctance to release Taxi may stem from the fact that this is a show that has a mild case of the "Season 1 Curse" -- that is, a first season that's not quite representative of the rest of the series. The first season was great and Emmy-winning, but it was missing one of the most popular characters from the subsequent seasons (Reverend Jim, who only appeared in one episode as a guest character, and was so popular that he became a regular in season 2) and featured a regular character who was dropped in season 2 (that guy -- Randall Carver). But the first season contains so many excellent episodes -- like the pilot, "Mama Gravas" and "Latka's Wedding" (with Reverend Jim) to name only a few -- that I think it could sell.

    I usually don't waste my money on TV on DVD. I only have Babylon 5 so far. That said, I'd be there in a minute.
