Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

This series pioneered the mixed-nuts ensemble comedy formula that was later refined in shows like Cheers and Wings. Although many of the series' cutting-edge gags will seem dated to today's kids, the characters' pursuit of their dreams and the strong emotional bonds they forge still ring true. It's not for young viewers, but for teens whose social skills are maturing, Taxi offers lessons in how personal differences can make friendships richer.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
