This is the worst Christmas ever. I had thought it was the one when our parents bought us hamsters and forgot to poke holes in the boxes, but at least that had a moment of suspense.

Wings has always been a great show with a wonderful cast of colorful actors like the Hackett brothers, the Chappel sisters, Lowell, Antonio, Fay, & Roy but I am probably leaving somebody out. Unlike most sitcoms, the show is set in Nantucket, far from the Los Angeles or New York City which is another reason to watch alone. Set in a small airport, Fay and Roy are always a pleasure to watch. Lowell is a unique character. The fact that the Hacketts, Lowell, and the Chappel sisters have a history in Nantucket is also useful for creating great plots around their history. I have plenty of favorite episodes like the psycho Valerie Mahaffey's character in recreating their senior prom, honeymoon, wedding etc. I also liked Farrah Forke's character but she left one season. These actors appear to have a good time on screen and off-screen which makes it another reason to watch. I just watched the Christmas episode where Antonio's girlfriend is the wife of his kidnapper, the new air traffic controller, who takes him hostage when he takes his donut. Sure the absurdity sometimes is half the fun of this show.
