One of Television's Funniest Comedies is Ready for Take-Off!
|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. Big-hearted Italian cab driver Antonio (Tony Shalhoub) and eccentric mechanic Lowell (Thomas Haden Church) always keep life around the terminal interesting. From friendship and family to romance and rivalry, when it comes to laughs in this hangar, the sky's the limit.|

Editor's NoteThe sometimes touching and always funny 1990s sitcom WINGS starred Tim Daly and Steven Weber as Joe and Brian Hackett, two brothers trying to run a small airline on Nantucket while dealing with a lovable, eccentric group of employees and friends that included lunch-counter waitress Helen Chapel (Crystal Bernard), immigrant cab driver Antonio Scarpacci (Tony Shalhoub), oddball mechanic Lowell Mather (Thomas Haden Church), and Helen's uptight older sister, Casey (Amy Yasbeck). Created by the team behind CHEERS and FRASIER, WINGS shared those shows' taste for zany situational comedy that was also intelligent, emotional, and decidedly mature. This collection presents all eight seasons of the beloved show.
