I think when the writers took the main plots out of the airport, it lost a lot. In my opinion, the weakest episodes took place in Helen and Joe's home. No matter how hard you try, wings on a vacuum cleaner doesn't work.
I am glad I purchased the entire collection (including season 8). I have already watched them all several times and I am sure I will, many times in the future.
For the entire series, I give Wings a strong 5 stars.
My wife and I have a collection of classic TV shows on DVD that we love and would rather watch 100 times over compared to much of the crap on these days. These include our favorites...... WINGS, CHEERS, SEINFELD, HOGANS HEROES, BECKER, STAR TREK TOS, etc......
But this final season of WINGS always seemed very strange.
You know how sometimes a show goes off the air and years later a reunion episode is done -or- they try to bring back the series and it feels wrong -- as though the actors could not connect with the vibe of their old characters ?
(think some of the Brady reunion shows where in their attempt to recapture the feel of their old characters they end up becoming their own spoofs).
WING'S final season seems that way.
Of course the stories were just silly and over the top for most of the last season (episodes like the Vacuum Cleaner episode are just painful to watch). This is the fault of the writers.
But in addition to this some of the key actors really overplayed their parts and seemed out of character compared to earlier episodes. This is especially true of Tim Daly and the way Joe behaved in most of the final season's episodes. Helen was also over animated most of this last season.
Brian, Casey and Roy seemed to stay in character.
WINGS is still among our top 5 shows of all time and of course in no form of art or work can the same standard be maintained forever.
All things in life have their birth, peak period, decline and eventual departure.Read more ›
