Up until its final year, Taxi was pretty good. The ensemble, especially when you saw them in other roles worked well. It has been said in other places that all humor [except possibly puns] is based on an element of pain.

I enjoyed Latka as part of the cast and did not enjoy Andy when he acted as a jerk. Clearly, I did not get the joke.
