Wings Season 1 & 2|
Review by Lando da Pimp
Wings, was "somewhat" a spin-off from Cheers. Wings, was not based on a Cheers character (i.e. Frasier) but, was set across the bay from everybody's favorite bar in Boston. This allowed Cheers characters (like Norm!) to make guest appearances throughout the run of the show. Wings, was a very easy-going character comedy that was a great compliment to Cheers. If you never watched this show, it has Monk's Tony Shalhoub as an Italian cab driver. Shalhoub was also in Men in Black.
Joe (Timothy Daly) and Brian (Steven Weber) Hackett run a commuter airline on the small island of Nantucket. Set in a small airport competing for business against Roy Biggins, who along with Helen the lunch counter manager, Fay who runs the ticket counter, Italian cab driver Antonia, and airplane mechanic Lowell helped add laughs around the airport terminal.
Because of the short run of Season 1 both seasons 1 & 2 are packaged together. The season begins with Joe and Brian reuniting after a 6-year separation and making amends to fulfill their late father's dying wish. They start Sandpiper Air, a one-plane local commuter service that flies back and forth to Boston. A good deal of the rest of the season and the second season explored the relationship between the three-core character of Joe, Brian, and Helen. Romantic interests with Joe and Helen and the "Odd Couple" paring of brothers Joe and Brian led to some very funny episodes.
There are no special features included on the discs.
I always liked the show Wings. From time to time I watch the show on the USA Network along with Coach, which seem to run all day long. As a fan of the show I enjoyed the DVD. I do wish Paramount would've included some special features on the set. I can only recommend the DVD to fans of the show and to pick it up and enjoy before they get to the later seasons when the show started to suck.
You can buy the first and second season of Wings from Amazon.com
