This is one of the best TV-series I´ve seen for years. I love the dialogue and having been a taxi-driver myself I feel very familiar with the plot. I think the producer has done a great job here - to make it so natural.. (perhaps being a taxi -driver himself..? The series reminds me somehow of Steven Bochco´s "Hill Street Blues" & "Brooklyn South" which unfortunately was taken off all too soon.. I hope this one will go on for years, quite something different than all the other American rubbish we are being fed up with..
