And now we're wingin' it all the time.
I'm giving wings to an angel,
Now we gotta learn to fly."
Wingin' It is a Canadian live-action TV series that involves an unruffled angel in training named Porter, who is assigned to Carl Montclaire in an effort to get his angel wings as a "full angel".
Three seasons were made, starting on April 3, 2010 and ending on May 25, 2013.
Wingin' It provides examples of:
- Almost Kiss: In "I Carlie" while in there gender bent forms, Carl and Denise lean into a kiss before the spell wears off and they both return to normal.
- Alpha Bitch: Brittany, minus the posse, and bitching downplayed. Gone in Season 2 onward.
- Our Angels Are Different: AITs.
- Attractive Bent-Gender: I Carlie episode.
- Character Development: Carl, Serge, Dennis, Brittany.
- Series Resemblance: Every episode, the Five-Man Band get into problems due to Angel Magic, while an unrelated subplot goes in, which doesn't involve Angel Magic. I've heard that somewhere before...

- First Law of Gender-Bending: In "I, Carlie", Denise agrees that Carl, now Carlie, has learned her lesson, and agrees to turn her back into Carl, but finds she can't. The AIT handbook explains that he cannot go back to being a boy until he truly understands girls.
- Five-Man Band: After Season 2 and later even more in Season 3, the humans form one, although they take even longer than the cast from Bleach.
- Flanderization: Serge went from Jerk Jock to holder of the Idiot Ball, so this worked both ways.

- Spiritual Successor: To Teen Angel.
- Third-Person Person: Serge would like you to know that Serge talks like this.
