Benson Episode Guide

Seasons 1 through 7

Lisa Wilcox consulted a variety of sources for the material included here and on the individual season episode synopses pages, and more than once found conflicting information. For instance, note that the episode number, which (we think) shows the order in which episodes were aired, doesn't always coincide with the production numbers, which probably had something to do with the order in which scripts were written and/or filmed. Lisa collated and synchronized the material to the best of her ability, but errors may remain.
