    I liked Benson, too. He and Benson were always at loggerheads. I don't remember why. That was back when I watched commercials.

    I was a fan of his. His range, his delivery. I got the sense that he was an interesting person IRL.

    Capable of playing very different characters and bringing life to each one. He will be missed

    Fine actor, but I disliked the character.
    He reminded me too much of cops who are mean.
    RIP, dude.

    Ya know....it bothers me when sci fi writers use sciencey terms inappropriately.
    Why would an alien share a name with a sub-atomic particle?
    (It's like Data on STTNG....Data? Why not Gleepzorp or Bob?)

    Men In Black got character names right, eg, the twins..... \

    Maybe it sounds better in the original Ferengi. Frank Zappa named one of his children "Moon Unit," so who can say what constitutes a "normal" name nowadays? Someone from another country might observe that some people are called "Jack," but they might also realize that the same word is used to refer to a device used for lifting up cars.

    Well, you do have a point here. I thought "Data" was a rather poor name, although I guess he could have changed it at any time. Or he might have gone cutesy and changed the stress into "da-TAH." Or a different spelling.

    Then there was The Doctor on Voyager, after going so many years without a name, he finally settles on "Joe."

    But I think the worst thing the writers did was come up with two planets called "Romulus" and "Remus."

    Of course Frank did it with style...not the childish pretense of sci fi.
    Btw, another kid was named Dweezil.
    That is coincidence.
    "Quark" was chosen.
    He wouldn't have changed it because he wouldn't care about it being odd.
    Bravo!
    I actually liked that joke.
    It ramped up the bizarreness of nearly everyone in the galaxy
    speaking English...with a midwestern broadcast accent no less.
