  • I think of Benson as a newspaper reporter thinks of a Man-Bites-Dog story.

    9.0
    Benson was cast in stereotype and played out in reverse. A white politician-type Governor having a Black household servant in his employment is Dog-bites-Man. That the servant had more sense than the Governor made the show noteworthy.

    The show was tastefully apolitical. Issues were never dealt with. Rather the focus stayed on running the Governor's household. That kept the show light and airy.
