In one episode, Helen is watching home movies of one of her childhood birthday parties. Young Brian is seen wearing a T-Shirt saying "STAR TREK LIVES". Steven Weber would later guest star on an episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993), and Tim Daly's father James Daly guest starred on the original Star Trek (1966) series. The "Star Trek" series, like "Wings", were all produced by Paramount Television (the original series began as a Desilu production). See more »
Early on in the series, Helen (Crystal Bernard) makes a reference to her sister "Loraine". Years later Amy Yasbeck joins the series playing Helen's only sister "Casey". See more »
I believe this show got better as the years went by, except for the Farah Forke years (thought she was terrible & made the brothers look like fools). Even as I watch the re-runs on USA I believe this to be one of the best sit-coms ever made. I'm not sure any of these characters could have done a spin off and been successful but as a group I don't think you could get much better than this. I'd rather watch these re-runs than most of the new crap that's out there today.
