Benson, Season 1TV-GClosed Captioning

Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.


Following his breakout success on the legendary sitcom Soap, star Robert Guillaume reprises his popular role as beloved butler Benson DuBois in the fabulous first season of this hit spin-off. Though a longtime fixture of Soap's crazy Tate family, Benson is sent by his employer, Jessica, to help run the disorganized household of her widowed cousin, Governor Eugene Gatling (James Noble). Once there, the fast-thinking, quick-witted servant soon finds himself not only managing the Governor's mansion staff, headed by housekeeper Gretchen Kraus (Inga Swenson) and helping to raise the Governor's daughter, Katie (Missy Gold), but even advising the governor himself. The Governor may be the boss, but it's Benson who's in charge in this riotous series that's a must-have for any classic TV comedy collection.

It still holds up!

I may be showing my age, but when this show was on, I was 9 and my favorite character besides Bert was Benson. Funny show. Thanks itunes.


please please please put soap on itune.

Funny Show!

I remember this show making me laugh more than any other series before or since. The attitude that Benson gets away with in this show is what really makes it! Some of the funniest moments are when Benson just gets exaspirated with the goings on in the mansion, and only Katie (Missy Gold) seems to understand his pain. Trivia: Star Trek fans should check this show out, as it features a pre-Odo René Auberjonois. When iTunes makes Seasons 2 and beyond available, you'll also see a pre-Neelix Ethan Phillips on the show, as well.
