Trivia / Benson

  • Fake Nationality: Kraus is German. Inga Swenson, the actress who plays her, is not.
  • He Also Did: Tony Mordente directed five episodes. Mordente is best known for playing A-rab in West Side Story.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Only Seasons 1 and 2 have been released on DVD so far, despite every season of its parent program Soap being readily available on DVD and on Netflix, and the show rarely plays in reruns anywhere (though it began airing in the U.S. on Antenna TV in 2012). However, given the series' DVD rights are now owned by Mill Creek, the possibility of future seasons finally being released may finally occur.
  • Shoot the Money: A two-part episode in Hong Kong in season 6.
  • You Look Familiar: Both from the parent show, Soap. Inga Swenson (Kraus) had played Corrine's birth mother Ingrid Svenson, while Caroline McWilliams (Marcy) played Burt's secretary, who claimed to have had an affair with him at the behest of Ingrid. None of this was never mentioned on Benson.
