On This Day (in 1990)

On May 31, 1990 one of my all-time favorite shows "Seinfeld" debuted on NBC. The 'show about nothing' ended its run on May 14, 1998 with 76 million viewers tuning in to see what would become of Jerry, George, Elaine and of course Kramer.

Here's a clip of one my favorite episodes "Marine Biologist." For all those non-"Seinfeld" fans, the episode centered around George pretending to be a marine biologist (the career fabrication was Jerry's, George would have preferred being an architect) in order to date a girl he knew in college, and Kramer trying to improve his golf swing by shooting golf balls into the ocean. The episode ends with an unforgettable and hilarious scene where in dramatic fashion George tells the gang the story of how he heroically saved a whale at the beach. Classic "Seinfeld" at its very best.
