Then, with syndication in the mid to late 90's I got to watch it all over again.
Well, now they have finally come to their senses and have started releasing the show on DVD. All I can say is it's about time. This was the funniest show of the 90's and it is my personal favorite sit-com of all time.
It just doesn't get any better. The characters are great; Joe, the anal and overly sensitive older brother; Brian, the flyboy (literally and figuratively); Helen, the quick-witted, smart-mouthed, lifelong friend; Fay, the (somewhat disfunctional) mother figure to everyone; Roy, the competition, a pain in the butt, but still always around causing trouble; and my personal favorites, Lowell and Antonio, Lowell being the village idiot that's good with a wrench but bad with everything else, and Antonio, the Italian cabby with a heart of gold but a long-fuse and a sarcastic, cynical outlook.
I LOVE THIS SHOW. To the producers, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
On to the DVD features. This DVD set features are non-existent and now has no "ALL Play" feature and you can't skip the end credits making you fast forward through them to get to the Main Menu to select the next episode. The manufacturer must be getting really lazy since the DVD has nothing but episodes and removed one of the nice features from the previous Wings DVD Sets.
Disk Error: My second disk doesn't allow me to directly play the first episode correctly; it plays with no sound. I have to skip to the next episode and then go back to the first one and now the sound plays.
Overall I'm happy with Season 4 even with the issues stated above.
The DVD itself is ridiculously amateur. There is no option to play the entire DVD (as has previously been mentioned) no extras such as interviews or bloopers. No tweaking of the video or sound quality.
Nothing that a real Wings fan would love to see just because the series itself is soooo dearly missed and the DVD releases are too few and far between.
During it's run this show NEVER got the accolades it deserved other than from it's die hard and dedicated fans. Now, in DVD it's being shorted again. Again, I don't want to sound like I'm complaining as ANY Wings is better than none and certainly better than the DOZENS of videotapes I have of this show that sit in my basement unwatched. But one would think that the tenth year anniversary of the end of the show might warrant a better video release than simply a cd in a box.
Lastly, I cannot wait to see Tim Daly on his new show. He's had three he's worked hard on and have not succeeded. It's a shame that so many of this talented ensemble have had such a hard time finding big hits after this show. Kudos to Tony and Thomas for their major successes. Hopefully third time is a charm for Tim.
