The Complete First & Second Seasons!
One Of Television's Funniest Comedies Is Ready For Take-Off!
The comedy takes off when pilots - and estranged brothers - Joe (Timothy Daly) and Brian Hackett (Steven Weber) reunite to run a commuter airline together. On the small island of Nantucket, the Hacketts run with a first-class crew of neighbors and co-workers, including lunch counter manager and childhood friend Helen Chappel (Crystal Bernard). Their rival Roy Biggins (David Schramm) keeps them on their guard, while sharp-tongued ex-stewardess Fay (Rebecca Schull) keeps them on their toes and eccentric mechanic Lowell (Thomas Haden Church) always keep life around the terminal interesting. This complete 3-disc set comes packed with surprises and proves how Seasons One & Two became such a high-flying success! From friendship and family to romance and rivalry, when it comes to laughs in this hangar, the sky's the limit!
Starring: Timothy Daly (Private Practice), Steven Weber (Ultimate Spider-Man, TV Series), Crystal Bernard (It s a Living), David Schramm (Let It Ride), Rebecca Schull (Suits), Thomas Haden Church (Sideways)

The first season isn't very good, and with only six mediocre episodes I have no idea how it got renewed for a real second season that is much better, but it does indeed get a lot better in the second season. This show is definitely unique among sitcoms, and it had some truly great episodes.
The quality of these DVDs is pretty decent. The episodes look about the same as they did on Netflix, it's not the greatest quality, but I think that's about as good as this series would ever look without some serious work done on it that no company would probably ever bother with. The audio is very good as well, definitely clear, probably the best technical aspect of these budget DVDs.
Overall if you liked Wings and want to watch some of it again I do recommend these budget DVDs if you want a cheap way to watch the show. Also I did end up buying the complete series set eventually, I forgot how great the later seasons are and they were only available with the complete series set.
I don't know why more people don't know about and love this show. The characters are so appealing, it's so funny, yet I tear up now and then too.
I once read that Helen was almost played by someone else, I can't even imagine that. When I think of Helen, I think of her jumping over the counter to attack someone, all tiny and furious like a hissing kitten.
This is a great show. We watch it as a family, and we all love it.
Oscar nominee Thomas Haden Church as the dimwitted Lowell Mathers. There is Crystal Bernard who plays Helen Chapel, the woman who was an overweight child and now runs the lunch counter at the airport, of course I can't forget Roy Biggins played by the underappreciated David Schramm, and I love Fay Evelyn Cochran played by the divine and wonderful Rebecca Schull. The Hackett brothers' childhood wasn't functional since their father went crazy and their mother bailed out on them as kids.
Of course, they have their moments but the chemistry among the cast is what holds the show together. They genuinely care for each other onscreen and offscreen even with spoiler Roy Biggins who we get to know as a boy who suffered humiliation in his youth and grew up to be a tough owner of Aeromass airlines, the rival to the Hackett brother's airline, Sandpiper, which is just one airplane. The show also tackles issues like homosexuality when Roy's son played by Abraham Benrubi who was on "ER" and is now on "Men in Trees" comes out to his disappointment.
The show was never an Emmy winner although it did get nominations nor was it a critical hit but it was a beloved show because for thirty minutes, you just wanted to be in Nantucket and I still want to be in Nantucket if given the opportunity. I just wished that the DVD showed special features about this show.
This box set will provide you with a lot of great entertainment. I hope you choose to support it so Paramount will have confidence to release further seasons. Two down, six to go!
