Limericks aside this sit-com had it all. The brilliant ensemble cast of characters, who managed Not to become caricatures over the course of 7 years, was always engaging. The lead actors, who depicted two brothers, were truly appealing. The physical humor was riotous and the witty repartee was hilarious. The plotlines were skillfully and seamlessly interwoven. The stories were intelligent and unusual, never stupid and predictable. It is perhaps a testament to the show that, despite most of the action taking place in a small Nantucket airline terminal waiting room, it remained a primetime staple for so long. Hurrah and halleluiah that it’s now available on DVD to watch over and over again, as it’s one of the few sit-coms that warrant reviewing.
I remember watching this show in the 90's. It is really the only sit-com that I can think of that I really truly enjoyed enough to watch every week.
Then, with syndication in the mid to late 90's I got to watch it all over again.
Well, now they have finally come to their senses and have started releasing the show on DVD. All I can say is it's about time. This was the funniest show of the 90's and it is my personal favorite sit-com of all time.
It just doesn't get any better. The characters are great; Joe, the anal and overly sensitive older brother; Brian, the flyboy (literally and figuratively); Helen, the quick-witted, smart-mouthed, lifelong friend; Fay, the (somewhat disfunctional) mother figure to everyone; Roy, the competition, a pain in the butt, but still always around causing trouble; and my personal favorites, Lowell and Antonio, Lowell being the village idiot that's good with a wrench but bad with everything else, and Antonio, the Italian cabby with a heart of gold but a long-fuse and a sarcastic, cynical outlook.
I LOVE THIS SHOW. To the producers, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
Wings is a dvd for the entire family.Our family enjoys watching the Hackett brothers and their friends compete for laughs on Nantuket. The first dics pauses intermittingly throughout the episodes, but the second dics works fine. I urge everyone to buy or rent seasons 1,2,3 & 4 and you will soon have everyone in the home laughing along. You can't beat the prices on Half.com
As first 3 seasons were about brothers and friend Helen,the fourth season is more about the rest of the cast.Lowell staying w/ Joe and Brian after his boat is sunk, is a great episode!! Also, Roy attempting to sing the National anthem at a BoSox game is priceless.All told, a very well written series.no matter what seasons you select.
i always liked this tv show and am in the process of collecting the full set. the characters are well played and very funny. especially roy.
