    Great show. Devito was hilarious. First time I ever spanked it was to Marilu Henner. There's a scene where Reverend Jim father dies. He puts his fathers suit on an easy chair and plays a tape of "Sunshine of my Life". Such an incredible scene. Gets me every time.

    Good list. Not a redeeming quality among them. That's what made them great.

    My vote is for Rev Jim as the Greatest Character in TV History, but I can't really argue with anyone putting Louie up there.

    He was great too. I just loved Louie's evilness. Jim was a little too nice for me. Hilarious though. The episode where he took his driver's test was the best.

    It happens at 3:55 - I'd forgotten about this episode, so I watch the whole thing. Well worth waiting for.

    This show was ahead of it's time. It's like there was too much talent on it to be contained in a TV set.
    Thanks for the chuckle.

    When you look at the comparison to Seinfeld - the make up of characters is close:
    Reiger = Jerry
    Elaine = Elaine (!)
    Rev. Jim = Kramer
    Louis = Newman

    There was no George on Taxi, just Latka - and Taxi never knew what to do with him.

    I never realized the female leads on both shows had the same name until just now. :(

    I always thought Kramer was very similar to Rev. Jim.
