During the second season of ‘Seinfeld’ – on Wednesday, December 12, 1990, to be more exact – the cast sat down to read through the script for what would be the fourth episode of the season and only the ninth episode of a series that would go on to produce a total of 180 episodes.

What is TV these days? Is it that big hulking flat screen in your living room where you watch awards shows live with commercials?
