5.0 out of 5 stars "Generic" or not, I am pleased May 10, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Ok, so there is no episode listing on the DVD packaging, there are no fancy decorations on the discs, and there are no behind-the-scenes footage or bloopers, but you know what? Every uncut Season 2 episode is there, and that's what I care most about. Given that the progression of this show on DVD was on life support a short time ago, I am grateful to Sony for finding a way to keep it moving and get it into the hands of the fans who have been waiting so long. Manufacture on Demand? Go ahead and release the remainder of the seasons the same way if you must, just release them.

I will add that I found it interesting that they threw in the first two episodes of Season 3. I just hope that doesn't mess up the flow of future releases in any way, and I really hope it doesn't mean this is as good as it gets. Also, the episodes were out of order on Disc 3, but I was just glad to see they were all there.

Thanks, Sony, and keep them coming because I personally feel that this great show really starts taking off in Season 3.

5.0 out of 5 stars Benson Season Two May 5, 2009
Will someone please have a heart and release the complete series of Benson, with explanations and interviews from the creators explaining the extended plot line of the series cliffhangers for both "Benson" and "Soap", which ended a little too soon. I would simply like to know how they intended to finish the various character's storylines. After all, without "Soap", there would be no "Benson".

This is just preliminary review. I will amend with updates.

While I do recognize that this is a DVD-R, one can expect the discs not to have scratches. Unfortunately this expectation was wrong. Disc 1 and Disc 2 (out of 3) were scratched. I do not know what the quality of playback is yet, as have just received the package 30 minutes ago.

The DVD case will not stay securely shut due to the bottom tab being snapped off. So far, every expectation has fallen through. The product did not come with ANY inserts or even episode list. This is a VERY bare bones offering. Unfortunately, this is the only way to get the second season without resorting to alternative means. Hopefully playback will be trouble free.

Update to follow...

May 3, 5:00pm
After having a chance to actually view several episodes, I am somewhat irritated and displeased. While the episodes are very clear when they play, I have had some glitches and picture freezes on 2 of 3 DVD players.

The first DVD player (Panasonic) would not recognize any of the 3 discs. I next tried a Sony DVD player which met with better success, but had several freezes. The third DVD player (a generic cheap POS) played the discs with the same glitches and freezes as mentioned before.

Spending the ~$30 for this quality of product is exceptionally frustrating. I would need to think long and hard before purchasing again. $20 would be more appropriate.

5.0 out of 5 stars laugh a minute May 12, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Just finished viewing Season 2 of Benson - my only complaint is that there was no menu included listing the episodes on each disc. Not having seen all the episodes when they were on television, I cannot make any comment regarding whether or not some of the episodes were out of order and if any were from season three. I enjoyed each and every episode from season two. Televison writers today need to learn from the writers of the eighties. You can have quality entertainment that isn't sprinkled with violence, excessive profanity, bathroom humor or sexual situations. I found the episode where Benson pretends to be the governor when Gretchen's best friend comes to call to be espcially entertaining. Plus, the lessons that can be learned are priceless. Benson speaks his mind without being condescending to others. Also, seeing Ted Danson and Dana Elcar in their roles added to the programs. If any more seasons of Benson are to be produced, I would definitely purchase them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Benson- Better and Better! August 23, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Benson season 2 brings a change to the cast, in Comes Rene Auberjonois as Clayton Endicott III the Governors aid and Ethan Phillips as Pete Downey his press secretary, all the cast get their moments in the sun and even after all this time the show is still wildly entertaining.
The episodes are crisp and clear, though i'd take 1 star off for the presentation of the 3 disc set, the First Season had the full color Benson logo from the Disc cover on the DVD's and a nicely done menu on the discs, Season 2 has only the Title on the DVD's and what looks like a made from home DVD makers menu, listing only the Episodes names.
In my opinion the series deserved better from the producers of the 2nd season, and i hope they learn for the 3rd-9th seasons, which i heartily look forward to.

I should not need to point out, but i will, that both Rene and Ethan both went on the great things as Odo in Star Trek DS9 and Nelix in Star Trek Voyager, 2 very fine actors to make those roles their own.

I hope that the following seasons come quickly.

Next Season Didi Conn, who was in Grease, comes in as Bensons secretart Denise, replacing Caroline McWilliams (Marcy Hill)Benson - Season 2

Truly love the series. These discs, however, are TERRIBLE. In theory this whole "burn as ordered" idea is a good money saver, but in practice it doesn't work at all. Read more

Don't buy this overpriced DVD-R set. Mill Creek Entertainment is re-releasing the first two seasons of Benson on Sept 2, 2014 and for a lot cheaper.
