A mini Taxi reunion!
September 16th, 2019 under Taxi. [ Comments: none ]


Yesterday was the 41st anniversary for the debut of (my favorite show) Taxi. To celebrate the show’s birthday, Tony Danza, Christopher Lloyd and Carol Kane all got together for brunch.

Oh to be a fly on that fruit, so that I could hear what Tony Banta, Reverend Jim and Simka were talking about. I am sure they remembering the good times with their late friends and co-stars Andy Kaufman, Jeff Conaway and J. Alan Thomas along with the ones that are still with us Danny DeVito, Marilu Henner and Judd Hirsch.

Such fond memories they must have. Especially since they have been friends for over 40 years. Both Danza and Lloyd wrote, “41 years after Taxi premiered, we still hang whenever we can! Love the Taxi family. Friends for life.” How many shows can say that?

And how many shows can answer, “What does a yellow light mean?”

If you have never seen Taxi, watch it on Hulu, CBS All Access and/or Tubi TV. I promise you will find yourself laughing hysterically with each episode. I still do that and I have seen each one more times than I count.

Andy Kaufman is finally getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame
June 20th, 2019 under Taxi. [ Comments: none ]


The Hollywood Walk of Fame announced today who will be getting stars next year and Andy Kaufman is finally getting one 35 years after he was taken away from us far too soon.

Ever since the first time I saw Taxi, I have loved the sitcom. In fact, it is still my all-time favorite show. The first time I saw Latka Gravas, I was in love. There was just something so endearing him. I was too young to know all about the Kaufman controversies. When I did learn about them, it just made me love him even more.

Therefore, on the day he gets his star, I will be there to see the ceremony in person. When it comes to the event, they have to get Tony Clifton to talk about his friend. If not him, then Jerry Lawler. The cast of Taxi can talk too, but Clifton would be the ultimate. Although I think Jim Carey might want to be the Man on the Moon, I mean the man behind the podium.

Kaufman and Muddy Waters are the only celebrities who are receiving stars posthumously. To see who else will be honored next year, then click here!

Great Scott, did Christopher Lloyd just hint about Back to the Future IV?
April 17th, 2019 under Lea Thompson, Michael J Fox, Taxi. [ Comments: none ]


Christopher Lloyd posted a photo with his Back to the Future castmates Michael J. Fox, Tom Wilson and Lea Thompson, and captioned it “BTTF IV”. Does that mean we might finally get a sequel after almost 20 years of waiting?

We don’t know and his co-stars are no help. Biff chimed in with, “The power of love is a curious thing…” While Lorainne McFly wrote, “We look like the Adams Family….LOVE YOU”

If only we had a time machine or a DeLorean we could get into and find out the answer. Since we do not, then we are just left waiting to find out what Doc meant.

However, it would be interesting to see what they would and could do because we have already passed the date they went to into BTTF 2. As we know that October 21, 2015, did not look like how they imagined it would be back in the late ’80s. Even that Burger King looks completely different because some cook destroyed the kitchen and they decided to renovate it. Just a little fun fact.

Danny DeVito reveals how he nailed the audition for Taxi!
March 25th, 2019 under Danny DeVito, Larry King, Taxi. [ Comments: none ]


Before Taxi, Danny DeVito only had small roles on television. Therefore, he did not know the big named producers who were attached to the sitcom.

When the actor got the script, he told Larry King on his Ora TV show that he “loved it”. Thus, he really wanted to make sure he left an impression with them.

He walked in, the casting director introduced him to producers so now it was time for him to sit down and audition in the hot seat. Before he sat down, he said them. “There is one thing I want to know before I start, ‘Who wrote this 💩,'” as he threw the script down on the table. With that Louis De Palma, one of television’s all-time greatest characters on television’s all-time greatest show, was born.

If you have never seen the brilliance of Taxi, watch it on Hulu or Tubi TV, the latter for free. You will understand why this will always be my favorite program. To get a glimpse of what it made it so wonderful, then click here!

Tony Danza’s alter ego is a rapper named Italian Ice!
October 11th, 2018 under Michael Strahan, Taxi, TV News. [ Comments: none ]


Tony Danza was on Good Morning America yesterday and Michael Strahan asked him if it is true he is a rapper. The actor, who is also a singer, shared with the hosts he has an alter ego named Italian Ice and then he showed off his rapping skills. You know what, he can give Childish Gambino a run for his money. That is if he can find a group of people who can clap on beat.

Another great reveal in this interview is Danza told them that one of his grandchildren thought he was in jail like his character on Netflix’s The Good Cop. The only crime he committed is by being so good on that police dramedy.
