After the huge success that was Cheers the producing trio of David Angell, Peter Casey, and David Lee created another series. They decided not to venture to far from Boston, the new series would take place on Nantucket Island and would be entitled Wings. Now thanks to Mill Creek Entertainment we all can discover or relive this series on DVD with the first two seasons.
Wings follows brothers Brian and Joe Hackett (Steven Weber and Timothy Daly) who attempt to run a Nantucket-based airline while surrounded by their various wacky friends and employees. Some of the best episodes in this collection include; "All for One and Two for Helen" When Brian plans to seduce Helen, she sees red … while Joe sees green. "Sports and Leisure" After ruining the gang’s fishing trip, killjoy Roy asks Joe for tips on how to make more friends. "It’s Not the Thought, It’s the Gift" In an effort to win her affection, Joe and Brian compete to give birthday girl Helen extravagant gifts. "Love is Like Pulling Teeth" After Helen’s wisdom teeth are pulled, Joe must pull a fast one to be in two places at once. "The Tennis Bum" Brian challenges Fay to a friendly tennis game, but he’s no match for the sporty senior. "Murder, She Roast" When Brian stays with Fay temporarily, he relishes in her home-cooked meals and hospitality … until he watches a fugitive-at-large TV show and sees the "Culinary Killer," a serial murderer who bears a striking resemblance to his hostess.
The 3 DVD set features all 28 season 1 and 2 episodes in their original full-frame format, and the picture quality is good. Sadly there is no bonus features, but it is still a great set for only $14.98. So if you love sitcoms from the 90s as much as me this is one you have to own.
