Boring is Interesting and Very Very Funny!!!!, 17 July 2007
Author: dataconflossmoor from United States

The initial response to this show is that it was a spin-off from the sitcom, "Cheers"; "Wings" was not easy to identify with, and maybe, it would last two seasons, three tops!! Much to the pleasant surprise of everyone, the superb character portrayals, and the exceptional writing to this series, made it one of the most popular shows in recent times!! The show focused on the Hackett brothers, Joe and Brian, and their unexplainable disappointments in life... The other characters followed suit!!! Joe, (Played by Tim Daly) was the super jock of yesteryear who tried to be perfect, he was only recognized in the small, one horse, town of Nantucket, and slowly but surely, even that fame began to quickly erode!! Brian, (Steven Weber) was the hapless Casanova who burdened his brother with his grotesque lack of responsibility in dealing with even the slightest matter!! Helen (Crystal Bernard) was the former childhood chub, now fit and trim, yet, she was still very non-motivated about her life!! Roy (David Schramm) was the biggest jerk in the world, having a halfway decent mind made this situation all that much more nauseating to stomach!! Faye (Rebecca Schull) was the conscientious and faithful worker who was an emotional Mardi-Grass! Lowell (Thomas Hayden Church) was the goof ball with a surprising succinct accuracy about certain issues!!(I had a friend, Ian, who was just like this) Those were the intricacies to being just the mechanic!! Antonio, (Tony Shaloub) he was the taxi driver who's life always went from bad to worse... Also on the show, were both Casie and Alex who were love interests of Brian's, they were attractive women whose lives were on the decline in one way or another!! When describing everyone's life in this series, it is tantamount to preaching apocalyptic doom!! These were lives which were besieged with unadulterated boredom, and, it nestled a kindred spirit with much of the television audience (unfortunately)... It is the element of monumental failure in everyone's lives that created wonderful cannon fodder for this situation comedy!! This show articulates copious aspects of lackluster behavior from always being defeated with the ill fated endeavors in these character's lives, and, the television show's witty dialog was written commensurately!!! The one episode which illustrated a domino effect scene, with regard to Lowell wanting a Kodak moment ,and missing the perfect one, because he was looking the other way, kind of summed this whole series up!! I love the T.V. Show "Wings" Tim Daly is one of my favorite television actors, and Steven Weber is so incredibly funny!! The writing was fabulous on this show, and the character portrayals on "Wings" are some of the best I have ever seen on television!! I rate this show 10 out of 10!!
