    A soap-opera premise that some deranged exec tried to turn into a sitcom. Thoroughly dull and unsympathetic characters.

    Not exactly a show for people expecting to "laugh their ass off" but a good tv show, the comedy is a lot like what you'd expect from Seinfeld.

    "Wings" may not have been one of the best shows of the 90's, but it was pretty close. As other reviewers have noted, clearly the producers drew on their prior work on "Cheers", but that didn't ultimately take away anything from the series in my opinion. The writing was usually superb and somewhat intelligent, and the cast was well balanced. Notwithstanding Tim Daly and Steven Weber really not having much success afterwards, they were both strong as the Hackett brothers. Crystal Bernard (Helen) sometimes irritated me a bit, but was usually okay. Of the rest, both Tony Shalhoub (Antonio) got his big break on the show, and Thomas Haden Church (Lowell) pegged his character. The show did suffer upon the latter's departure, as his replacement Brian Haley (Budd) was a poor substitute. I will say that I usually hated Amy Yasbeck as Casey, and Farrah Forke was a bit too stoic as Alex (even for that character). Anyway, "Wings" had a strong final episode (especially when compared to, say, "Seinfe... Read more

    I really liked the show when it came out but they ran out of ideas after a couple of seasons and it lost its punch.

    This show was so gawd awful and boring, shaloub is much better in a far, far superior show, (Monk). After watching this show I realized it was, like Coach, terribly over rated boring junk.

    My all time favorite show. I watch during every meal and before going to bed. Great cast, great storyline, great show! By the way, I came across this link while searching for Wings on DVD. Is this legit? ** Scroll to the bottom to find Wings (alphabetical order).

    This is a typical white bread, lame , no edge to it, sitcom. Bland and unoriginal.

    I remember seeing like 5 episodes of this and then they changed it to a different time in which I could no longer watch it.

    More bemusing than funny. Can't say I watched it much, largely because I found most of the characters vapid.

    I confess that I'm not a fan of sitcoms. I rarely watched Cheers or Seinfeld or Frasier, and I never watched Friends at all. But I just loved Wings. I still do. And I record all the episodes I can off Nick at Nite because, for some unknown reason, Paramount has not seen fit to put it out on DVD yet. What can they be thinking? How often do you get great writing, great acting and great chemistry together in one program? Not as often as one would like.

    This show was funny but no where near Friends or Cheers. When Lowel left it jumped the shark and was never very funny again.

    I have all but 2 of the episodes recorded and watch them very often. Hard to believe I still laugh so hard after seeing them so many times. I'm definately a Wings junkie.

    As a teenager in the 1990's, Wings was one of the shows I grew up to. I had a crush on Crystal Bernard. Plus, I understood being the guy who 'strikes out' when it comes to woman like Antonio does.

    Just like I will never understand the popularity of Everybody Loves Raymond, I could never understand the animosity towards Wings. I think it deserves to be listed along with other modern classics like Cheers, The Simpsons, The Cosby Show. Taxi, Frasier, Seinfeld, and other sitcom greats. It's such a hilarious sitcom with a talented cast, lovable characters, and great writing. I can't believe it never got so much as an Emmy nomination. It's a fine example of intelligent comedy.

    I take it back, this show is a piece of s--t. I think my brain cells decreased whilst watching it. I'm still a Thomas Haden Church fan, I've been 'Wingless' for two months and I love it. I think that THC fans should be watching less Wings and getting more involved in the 'Harry Potter' books/movies/video game series. Getting into some of Sonic the Hedgehog games can also be an alternative. That's what I've been doing and I've never felt better. Less Wings, more Harry Potter and Ned and Stacey!

    I LIVE FOR NICK AT NITE so I can watch shows like this one. Why can't they make TV shows like this one anymore? This show was great, until Lowell left, then it just wasn't the same. Definitely one of my all time favorites. Only Frasier has surpassed it in comparison.

    Wings was always my favorite show when it stared on USA network in the morinings. I hear the ratings was good all over where ever the station the show went. I love wings and the characters, it was truely funny. And it was just what I needed to relax from fraustration from school, I love wings and hope everyone gets the great share of a show of the lifetime as I did, Thank ye Cast and Crew!

    From season two until Helen's stupid sister joined the show, it was the BEST comedy, bar none. Yeah, that broad, along with the overall change in style, really ruined it for everyone. I can only hope the fantastic directors, writers (like Ian Gurvitz, was it, and company), and the rest of the crew would get together again and produce another masterpiece. Thanks for all the laughs, guys.

    Wings was certainly one of the best comedies during the 1990's. It had a wonderful ensemble of actors, great writing and plots, and it just seemed to have something for everyone. They just don't make shows like this anymore.

    Wings...there are no words to describe my feelings for this show!! To say that it was underrated is an underSTATEMENT! Wings was by far one of the funniest shows of it's time...and still remains to be the funniest in my book. The goodness...the humor people!! The thing about it's humor was that it was "real" humor. Meaning...I'd watch the shows with my friends, and we'd all be! that sounds like something we'd say! It wasn't boring and predictable humor like most of todays sitcom's seem to be. Wings...nothing could ever replace it! WE MISS YOU!

    Where 3rd Rock was a second Seinfeld, Wings was a second Cheers (the show even took place near Massachsettes), and recreating Cheers isn't easy. If you were to take the characters from Cheers and place them in the spots of some of the characters of Wings, few differences would have been noticable. Helen Chapple was Carla Torteli with a southern accent, a snobby waitress who wasn't afraid to tell people off. Antonio Scarpachi, a poor working man who was sort of a nutcase, dead ringer for Cliff Claven. In Brian Hackett I saw another Sam Malone, a fun loving girl chaser who probably spent too much time on his hair. In contrast to Joe Hackett who I am convinced was Diane Chambers in a previous life, a hard worker who sometimes took things too seriously (though he probably did not know nearly as much poetry). The only difference between Lole Mather and Woody Boyd was a name change. Then we have Roy Biggins... Well, he was as fat as Norm Peterson, but that is pretty much where the sim... Read more

    I have never understood the animosity that TV critics and NBC have towards Wings. I have always thought that it was such an intelligent, well-written sitcom and just about everyone I know who has seen the show has said the same thing about it. I think Wings is just as good as Cheers, The Simpsons, and Frasier and it is definitely far better than Friends and Everybody Loves Raymond, which all the critics seem to love so much.People should ignore the critics and watch what interests them. Wings interests me; Everybody Loves Raymond doesn't. UPDATE: To the person who rated all my comments "Not Helpful" about 5-9 times each over the last week, GET A LIFE!!! If you're thinking you can change my opinion, think again.
