    I don't know if everybody watched that interview it was done on August 7. Guillame talks about Benson quite a bit incluing how he thought the character would be viewed and they show clips from the show. The transcript is still there on PBS.org and I think the podcast is still there too (might have to subscribe). It's a great interview especially to see Benson revisited after all this time.

    Interesting..I'll have to see if I can still pull it up. On the Season 1 DVD, you get some pretty good extras and Guillaume is involved in a lot of that, talking about his role as Benson, working with the other characters, and just the show in general. The DVD is great.

    I wouldn't mind having Season 2 because it includes some, if not all of my favorite episodes.

    I hear ya, bring on ALL the remaining seasons!

    Ironically, the only 2 seasons that really have more than a few 'bad' episodes (to me, anyway) are Seasons 1 and 7.
