    I agree! I hope they show the Soap related episodes as part of it. I think there were only two.

    It was great seeing Benson again.  I haven't seen this show in years, but loved it when it was on the air.

    It was one of my favorite shows of the 80's . It was ''sheer brilliance'' i remenber seeing the ''Benson'' character on Soap but i never realy got into that show it might have been that there was something else on at the same time but he was deff. a funny character . Fortunatley his show lasted 7 years , i watched a lot of episodes over the weekend but just looking at the Episodes list on this site i was suprised as to how many there were and how many i missed ! And just reading  the discription of each one i actually remember allmost everyone. Hopefully they will release them on DVD soon!

    I agree - it was GREAT to see Benson back on TV. I'm just sad they cut the episodes up so bad. I have a LOT of them taped (when they were reruns) back from Chicago WGN-Channel 9, and they were cut up pretty bad back THEN! But TV Land cut even MORE out of them - it drives me crazy!!! Thank god I have most of season 6 and 7 from their original ABC airings, completely uncut.

    PLEASE RELEASE THIS SHOW UNCUT ON DVD!!!

    They need more and more time for commercials, so they cut out more and more of the original show.  It's a real shame that it's impossible to see old episodes of any shows intact unless you buy them on DVD.

    And there is no guarantee the show will be uncut on DVD either. Shows like Third Rock From The Sun, Cosby, and Married...With Children have come out on DVD with (Syndicated, cut) episodes on them.
