Wings Season 4
Get set to laugh as the classic fourth season of Wings has arrived from Paramount Home Entertainment.
Set on Nantucket Island, the series followed the exploits of Sandpiper Airlines, a small one plane operation that commutes between the Island and Boston as well as other points of interest. The airline is owned by Joe Hackett (Timothy Daly), who is a stickler for details and a solid if unexciting individual.
The laughs start to fly when the supporting cast comes into play, as the characters all have a very interesting history. There is Helen (Crystal Bernard). an aspiring Cellist who runs the airport lunch counter. She has been friends with Brian and Joe since childhood but was hampered by her weight which she has recently lost in becoming a very attractive lady. Then there is Lowell (Thomas Hayden Church), the simple, yet eccentric mechanic, who is a whiz with planes as he is with oddball saying and situations.
Rounding out the cast are Rebecca Schull as Faye, a former airline hostess who has buried her past three husbands, and who runs the counter at Sandpiper, and Roy Biggins, (David Schramm), who owns a much larger airline chain that competes with Sandpiper
The season opens following the plane crash that has left the brothers as well as Lowell, Faith, Helen and Roy stranded in the ocean. In no time things go from bad to worse with hilarious consequences. As the season progresses, we get to see Roy make his singing debut at a Boston Red Sox game, Helen and Lowell going out on a date, and the arrival of the sexy new helicopter pilot, Alex, who sets the two brothers in a heated battle for her attention.
While most shows start to fade after their first couple of seasons, this show keeps getting stronger and this is a collection for fans and collectors alike.
