Product Description

Created by the same production team responsible for the hugely popular series Cheers, Wings has a similarly homey, familiar feel. Replacing the Boston bar is a small airport on Nantucket Island. The denizens of the bar are replaced with pilots and airport personnel. What the viewers are left with is a delightful show revolving around Sandpiper Air Service, a tiny charter airline co owned by two handsome, charming brothers, a rival airline, Aeromass, and a lunch counter run the brothers' life-long friend, Helen.

Set in Nantucket, Wings focuses on a group of people who work at the same small airport and like each other so much (or are so bored) that they are constantly meddling in each other's business. The sixth season of the sitcom includes preparations for not one, but two weddings. Not to be outdone by Joe (Tim Daly) and Helen's (Crystal Bernard) engagement (finally!), busybody Roy (David Schramm) decides that he, too, wants to get married and sends away for a Russian mail-order bride. Feeling underappreciated, Fay (Rebecca Schull) quits her job only to regret her decision. And lovable but doltish Lowell (Thomas Haden Church) decides that the best thing to do with his inheritance money is to operate a wax museum. With the breakup of Joe's younger brother Brian (Steven Weber) and helicopter pilot Alex (Farrah Forke), a new romantic interest is brought in: Helen's sister Casey (Amy Yasbeck). Cabdriver Antonio (Tony Shalhoub) likes her, too, but he also has developed feelings for a woman who is engaged to his cousin. This season's slew of guest stars includes George Plimpton, former Mod Squad lead Peggy Lipton, and Debbie Reynolds as Helen and Casey's mother. All 26 episodes from the 1994-1995 season are included in this four-disc set that holds up surprisingly well over time. The chemistry between the ensemble cast is strong and the actors are likable, even when they're doing unlikeable things (We're talking about you, Roy!). --Jae-Ha Kim

Get set to laugh as the classic sixth season of Wings has arrived from Paramount Home Entertainment.

Set on Nantucket Island, the series followed the exploits of Sandpiper Airlines, a small one plane operation that commutes between the Island and Boston as well as other points of interest. The airline is owned by Joe Hackett (Timothy Daly), who is a stickler for details and a solid if unexciting individual.

The laughs start to fly when the supporting cast comes into play, as the characters all have a very interesting history. There is Helen (Crystal Bernard). an aspiring Cellist who runs the airport lunch counter. She has been friends with Brian and Joe since childhood but was hampered by her weight which she lost in becoming a very attractive lady. Then there is Lowell (Thomas Hayden Church), the simple, yet eccentric mechanic, who is a whiz with planes as he is with oddball saying and situations.

Rounding out the cast are Rebecca Schull as Faye, a former airline hostess who has buried her past three husbands, and who runs the counter at Sandpiper, and Roy Biggins, (David Schramm), who owns a much larger airline chain that competes with Sandpiper

The season opens with Helen leaving for New York to marry the wealthy Davis Lynch after spending a night with Joe. Joe follows Helen and convinces her to accept his marriage proposal. Hilarious consequences ensue as the duo plans for their wedding and have to deal with the arrival of Helen's sister Casey (Amy Yasbeck), who has had to abandon her socialite ways after being dumped by her husband.

My husband and I are huge fans of WINGS ... and own the Series 1-6 but cannot find Season 7 & 8 which we would like to add to our collection. The writers are brilliant. We laugh our way through all the episodes. Each character is perfectly suited for their roles and a pleasure to watch. We feel good after watching an episode or more ... relaxing fun and excellent entertainment. Witty, comical, endearing, delightful, always in good taste.

I especially like the interaction between the brothers and the staff. Helen, Crystal Bernard, who operates the lunch counter and yearns to play her cello professionally, is hilarious at times and spirited, often precious, but fiesty enough to hold her own with the brothers, who are her two best friends. They grew up together in charming Nantucket. Fay's,Rebecca Schull, humor I especially appreciate as she is like many of my friends. Lowell, Thomas Haden Church, it took me a while to figure out his unusual wit ... but have enjoyed his character as well as the rest of the staff. And Roy, David Schramm, is perfect for his character and cracks me up every episode. Antonio, Tony Shalhoub, is a charming taxi driver who longs to find a love interest who would appreciate his charm. Casey, Helen's sister, is a spirited addition who brings spark to the series.

I love Brian's amusing character ... have several friends with Brian's wit and crazy sense of humor ... and Tim Daly, one of the most handsome actors in movieland, is an attractive catch ... a decent, responsible guy with great humor and an eye for sweet Helen, which involves many endearing episodes.

We watch the WINGS DVD's over and over ... never tire of them and each episode is still humerous and facinating no matter how many times we see it ...

The sixth season of Wings was undoubtedly its best and the DVDs shos that. However, the quality of the DVD package leaves something to be desired. To save money, the distributors has inserted the DVDs over the episode summaries so that you have to clumsily remove them to read the summaries. Further, there are no extras yet again as in the previous season collections. Finally, visual quality seems murky at best.
Buy this season for the funny, endearing characters and try to forget about the cheapo packaging.

Most comedies hit their stride in their second season. It usually takes that long to get a good handle on the characters and really get things humming. While Wings was certainly good by Season Two, I personally believe that it wasn't until Season Six that it truly hit its peak. The often wooden Alex departed and was replaced by Helen's sister, Casey. Casey was comedy gold and added an energy that the show had lacked up to this point. The writing also seems to have taken a step forward and the number of laugh-out-loud funny moments goes way up from past seasons.

If you've never watched Wings, you probably don't want to come in quite this late... you should probably go back to Wings - The Complete Third Season at least. But if you've watched several seasons and are wondering if it's worth it to keep going, the answer is an emphatic "Yes!"

This is one of the best seasons of Wings. What a great show this was !
My only complaint, and this happens with different series of TV shows on DVD and movies. Seasons 1 through 5 all came in the same packaging and now season 6 is different. Doesn't make this a bad product .. it just isn't the same. It's all plastic.
Oh well ... this is a great set none the less !
