Taxi is one of the defining sitcoms of the 1970s. This character-driven comedy rolled out of the garage with a full tank of gas as well as smart, witty, and compassionate writing, and extraordinary characters. The employees of The Sunshine Cab Company include single mother Elaine (Marilu Henner), aspiring actor Bobby (Jeff Conaway), hapless boxer Tony (Tony Danza), reptilian dispatcher Louis (Danny DeVito), naive guy John (Randall Carver), and mechanic Latka (Andy Kaufman). Judd Hirsch's salt-of-the-earth cabbie Alex Rieger solved everyone's problems but his own. Award-winning episodes include: Blind Date in which Alex tries to befriend an embittered overweight woman, and High School Reunion in which Bobby impersonates Louie at Louie's reunion to impress his mean former classmates.
