Why Do They Throw Gorgeous Elaine and Pelican Beak Together?
12 December 2019 | by TheFearmakersSee all my reviews

Love Judd Hirsch as Alex. He is a great actor; a great character. But sometimes the Taxi writers mistake him for Tom Selleck... Using him as the epitome of a handsome man, but actually, Selleck who almost hooks up with the gorgeous Marilu Henner on an episode of Taxi, and on two episodes there's a romantic fling with Alex (the other when they both go to Vienna together), which makes zero sense. It's better that they're friends. I can see her wanting Bobby, or Tony, but Alex? He looks like he'd play checkers with her father.
