I loved this late 70s to mid 80s sitcom. The show was Benson. Benson was a character from the spoof soap opera Soap played by Robert Guillaume. Benson went to work running the governor’s mansion for a very good hearted not too bright Governor played by James Noble. This show also had for chief of staff Rene Auberjunois aka Odo from Star Trek Deep Space 9.

As a not too bright Governor who always made the right decisions. Reading about James Noble I wish I had known him more then just as a governor. A really impressive history. He was also a WW2 Vet.
