Fittingly, tonight's final episode of "Wings" enables the veteran sitcom to go out not with a bang, or even a whimper, but just a pleasant smile.For eight seasons, this chronicle of a tiny Nantucket airline has served as the archetypal working-man's sitcom, rarely great, never awful, always there, plugging away. If "Frasier" typifies the JTC best of television comedy and UPN's "Social Studies" the worst (trust me, it was relentlessly awful), "Wings" belongs right there in the middle.Which is where tonight's one-hour finale, "Final Flight," belongs: It's neither the best "Wings" nor the worst, but it's OK. And by definition, that's not bad.Helen (Crystal Bernard)

Hank Steinberg is trying to keep the faith. But it's tough to wage war against doubt when the show you've poured the last 18 months of your life into has disappeared from the TV schedule and no one knows when it's coming back. Steinberg is executive producer of The Nine, ABC's drama that was supposed to have been one of the big hits of the fall season. It was the sort of project that was seemingly blessed from the get-go. Critics loved the pilot, a tense thriller about hostages rescued from a 52-hour bank heist who emerge as a close-knit but emotionally battered group.

In the laughless and lifeless "Dr. Jekyll and Ms. Hyde," Tim Daly plays Richard Jacks, a scientist at a perfume company whose career is in a downward spiral when he inherits some papers written by his great-grandfather, Dr. Henry Jekyll. Yes, that Dr. Jekyll.Jacks messes around with his ancestor's infamous formula, and before you can say " 'Young Frankenstein' did all this much more cleverly," he's morphing into Helen Hyde, who is, of course, a woman.That's what passes for comic invention here.

Transamerica [Weinstein Co.] $29 DVD Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman received a Golden Globe award and a best actress Oscar nomination for her bravura -- and brave -- performance in Transamerica. An uneven comedy-drama, the film features Huffman as a conservative transgender woman who discovers she has a 17-year-old son (Kevin Zegers). Extras include interviews with writer-director Duncan Tucker and his two stars, a blooper reel and commentary from Tucker. Cheaper by the Dozen 2 [Fox]

A trio of season-ending repeats from last season can only mean one thing: premiere month is hard upon us, and new episodes can't be far beyond.Unfortunately, that's not true of NBC's "Wings" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11), which repeats May's season- and series-ending finale, as the gang goes on a wild hunt for riches after finding an old suitcase containing a cryptic note from the late father of Joe (Tim Daly) and Brian (Steven Weber).But both CBS' "The Nanny" (8 p.m.-8: 30 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13)

The stunts and special effects are the best in network series television. The first 10 minutes of the pilot pound with an action-adventure rhythm as steady, relentless and urgent as a jack hammer. The narrative is mythic and resonant. "The Fugitive," which premieres tonight on CBS, is a very impressive piece of work - one of the most ambitious pilots, in fact, that we've seen in years. The $6 million price tag alone suggests that. So, I guess I better explain why I'm not more excited about this remake with Tim Daly playing the role of Richard Kimble, the doctor wrongfully convicted of killing his wife and now trying to elude police and track down the one-armed man who he says is the real killer.

The interview started out all right for Timothy Daly.The co-star of "Wings" was in a conference call talking about his role as David Koresh in NBC's "In the Line of Duty: Ambush at Waco," which is scheduled to air May 23.Daly was using all the right Hollywood jargon to keep the ink flowing about the movie straight through the next three weeks of May sweeps.He was asked, for example, if he had seen the live coverage April 19 of the Branch Davidian compound going up in flames with Koresh and many of the members of his religious cult still inside.

Here's your chance to play armchair detective. Consider these clues. In the series in question: The good guys operate out of a cavernous headquarters equipped with computers and fancy-schmancy spy gadgetry. They don't blink at circumventing the law to get results. There are secret love affairs going on among the employees. Loyalties within the organization are tenuous, and there's at least one mole deep inside. Their cases have a time-sensitive urgency. The producers use multiple images and on-screen IDs to help viewers keep track of who's who. OK, name that show.

Aaron Kraus, the University of Maryland student government president, had two hot dogs, a steak and an ear of corn for dinner last night. "I'm full," said the 135-pound senior. "Hopefully it will last a while." It will have to, as Kraus says he is going on a hunger strike starting this morning to protest Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s veto of a bill that would have capped tuition at the university system. The demonstration -- which Kraus says will go on for "as long as it takes" -- is part of a push by students and the nonprofit Marylanders for Access to Quality Higher Education to get the legislature to override Ehrlich's veto next year.

For many homeowners, the numbing drudgery of mowing the lawn is one of the unkindest cuts of domestic life. But to Tim Daly of Columbia, there's pure splendor in the grass-cutting. Daly, 58, has been disabled for 35 years with a rare inherited neuromuscular disorder called Friedreich's Ataxia. He uses a walker, wheelchair and scooter to get around. Because Daly views cutting his lawn as a symbol of independence, he happily attacks what many men assiduously try to avoid. "He wanted to do a routine task that most of us take for granted," said Jan Hoffberger, executive director of Volunteers for Medical Engineering in Northeast Baltimore.
