A romantic trip to China turns into a lunar nightmare for a pair of happy newlyweds when their taxi driver ditches them in a remote village, and the locals offer them up as sacrifices for the menacing moon creatures that return to Earth annually to replenish their ranks. According to Chinese legend, the dead return to Earth on the seventh month of the lunar year, when the moon glows full in the night sky. America-born Yul (Tim Chiou) and his new wife Melissa (Amy Smart) had just arrived in China to meet Yul's family when their idyllic getaway takes a sudden turn for the worse. When night falls and their tour guide leaves them stranded in a darkened, boarded-up village, Yul and Amy quickly realize that this wasn't a planned stop. Once a year, the lunar creatures return to Earth in search of a sacrifice. Yul and Amy have just been offered up, and now in order to avoid being assimilated into the collective that pursues them through the darkened forest, they will have to survive until the morning light casts the frightful beasts back to the moon for another year. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
This tense urban drama stars Nicolas Cage as Frank Pierce, a paramedic on the brink of physical and emotional collapse. Frank has worked for years in one of New York's most brutal neighborhoods, and the pressure of his job has taken its toll; plagued with self-doubt, he is haunted by the spirits of the people he couldn't save, and while he desperately wants to quit his job, outside forces won't let him walk away. Bringing Out the Dead brought director Martin Scorsese back to the streets of contemporary New York, one of his favorite locations, after three films set elsewhere: Kundun, Casino, and The Age of Innocence. The film also reunited Scorsese with screenwriter Paul Schrader, who scripted Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, and The Last Temptation of Christ. The supporting cast includes Patricia Arquette as the daughter of a heart attack victim that Frank has fallen in love with, and John Goodman and Ving Rhames as two of Frank's fellow drivers. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
A Senegalese taxi driver living in Winston-Salem, NC, makes the decision to befriend a depressive passenger with a tragic plan in director Ramin Bahrani's deeply humanistic drama. Solo (SoulÃ©ymane Sy SavanÃ©) is a cab driver whose believes that everyone should be engaged and concerned with one another, and thus lacks the self-conscious view of relationships so prevalent in North American society. When a 70-year-old passenger named William (Red West) hails Solo's cab and books him for another ride in two weeks during the course of his ride, it quickly becomes apparent over the course of their negotiation that the man isn't planning to return from his impending trip. Troubled at the thought of what his passenger has planned, Solo does his best to strike up a friendship and convince William to reconsider. But William harbors a pain more deep-rooted than Solo first senses, displaying a visible desire for privacy that immediately putts him at odds with the genuinely concerned cab driver. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

Archie is up in arms over the notion of a Latino family moving into the neighborhood. In this, Archie finds himself with an unexpected ally: Henry Jefferson, his black neighbor from across the street, who is likewise averse to allowing "those people" to make their home on Houser Street. This episode served to introduce the Bunkers' new next-door neighbors, Irene and Frank Lorenzo, played by Betty Garrett (replacing Sada Thompson, who reportedly couldn't get along with series star Carroll O'Connor) and Vincent Gardenia. Written by Don Nicholl, "We're Having a Heat Wave" originally aired on September 15, 1973. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide All in the Family: Edith Finds an Old Man Burt Mustin makes his first series appearance in the role of feisty octogenarian Justin Quigley (a character that, at age 82, was seven years younger than Mustin!). Running away from a restrictive nursing home, Justin accepts Edith's invitation to temporarily move in with the Bunkers, which elicits the anticipated reaction from Archie. Ruth McDevitt likewise makes her first appearance as Justin's geriatric sweetheart, Josephine "Jo" Nelson. Scripted by Michael Ross and Bernie West from a story by Susan Harris, "Edith Finds an Old Man" was originally telecast on September 29, 1973. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide All in the Family: Archie and the Kiss Gloria brings home a miniature replica of Rodin's famous sculpture "The Kiss." The erotic nature of the sculpture does not rest well with Archie, who orders Gloria to take that "dirty thing" out of the house immediately. Want to bet that this sparks another Battle Royal in the Bunker household? Also worth watching is Edith's impromptu paean to the music of Henry Mancini. Written by John Rappaport, "Archie and the Kiss" first aired on October 6, 1973. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide All in the Family: We're Still Having a Heat Wave Now that the Lorenzos have moved next door to the Bunkers, Archie has managed to come up with a whole new list of pet peeves. It especially vexes Archie that Irene and Frank Lorenzo don't seem to know their proper gender roles: Irene does the household repairs, while Frank does all the cooking -- and even sings in the kitchen. Even worse, at least as far as Archie is concerned, Irene bids fair to become Edith's new best friend. Written by Michael Ross and Bernie West, "We're Still Having a Heat Wave" first aired on September 22, 1973. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide All in the Family: Archie the Gambler Why is stingy, curmudgeonly old Archie coming home loaded down with expensive gifts and lavish compliments for Edith and Gloria? The answer: Archie has just struck it rich at the race track.

Ever since he adopted the obnoxious alter ego of swingin' bachelor Vic Ferrari in the previous season's "Latka the Playboy," mild-mannered mechanic Latka Gravas (Andy Kaufman) can never tell when he himself will "disappear" and Vic will emerge. Making matters worse, Latka has adopted several other personalities -- his latest being a carbon copy of fellow cabbie Alex (Judd Hirsch)! Clearly, a visit to the shrink is long overdue...and that is where special guest star Barry Nelson comes in. ~ All Movie Guide Taxi: Louie's Fling Series star Danny DeVito's real-life significant other Rhea Perlman repireses her role as Zena Sherman, off-and-on girlfriend of DeVito's Taxi character Louie DePalma. As a favor to Zena, Louie agrees to act as escort to her friend Emily (Andrea Marcovicci), whose despondency over a busted romance has resulted in an over-dependence upon booze and other substances. One thing leads to another, and by the end of the evening Emily and Louie are an "item." Zena's outrage over being two-timed is nothing compared to the climactic confrontation between a tearful Louie and a "helpful" Alex (Judd Hirsch). ~ All Movie Guide Taxi: Of Mice and Tony Having endured one too many hard knocks in the boxing ring, eTony Banta (Tony Danza) has elected to hang up his gloves and become a trainer. Spotting a young fighter named Terry Carver (Ernie Hudson), Tony immediately senses that the kid has potential. He then offers to become Terry's manager...and that's when the trouble starts. The highlight of this episode is Tony's one-on-one with the "Syndicate" (whose members include Taxi scriptwriters Howard Gewirtz and Ian Praiser). ~ All Movie Guide Taxi: Like Father, Like Son Jack Gilford returns in the role of Joe Rieger, estranged father of cab driver Alex (Judd Hirsch). Much against his better judgment, Alex agrees to meet Joe for lunch at Mario's (the cabbie's favorite hangout), whereupon dear old dad tries to push his son into a date with a stranger named Karen (Barbara Babcock). At first gratified by his father's gesture, Alex is ultimately disillusioned when jaunty Joe tries to make time with Karen himself! ~ All Movie Guide Taxi: Louie Goes Too Far Ever since she became a cabbie, Elaine (Marilu Henner) has been forced to fend off the verbal insinuations of lecherous dispatcher Louie DePalma (Danny DeVito). But when Louie spies on Elaine while she's in the ladies' room it is the last straw. In a fully justifiable feminist huff, Elaine reports Louie to his superiors and gets him fired -- thus setting the stage for a hilarious denouement in which the frenzied Mr. DePalma literally falls to his knobby knees to beg Elaine's forgiveness. ~ All Movie Guide Taxi: Louie's Mom Remarries Julia DeVito, real-life mother of Taxi co-star Danny DeVito, makes a return appearance as the mother of DeVito's series character, abrasive taxi dispatcher Louie DePalma. Characteristically, Louie is furious that his mom plans to get married again, and to a man who isn't even Italian. In fa
