Even though it's supposed to be the "show about nothing," Seinfeld actually provides something of a continuity from one episode to the next throughout its fourth season. Things get started with the two-part "The Trip," in which Jerry (Jerry Seinfeld) and George (Jason Alexander) head to California for the dual purpose of locating Kramer (Michael Richards) -- who has delusions of stardom since his Murphy Brown gig -- and appearing on The Tonight Show. This little escapade segues into a plot strand wherein NBC executive Russell Dalrymple (Bob Balaban in his first series appearance) asks Jerry to develop a sitcom about his life (now who'd watch something like that?). By the time Elaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) returns to New York after a trip to California, however, the sitcom deal is gone -- but not forgotten, as it continues coming back to life for the duration of the season, culminating in the hour-long season finale, "The Pilot." In other classic moments, Jerry and George run afoul of "The Bubble Boy"; Elaine disposes of a certain "Crazy Joe" with a well-aimed spurt of cherry Binaca; the gang makes its first foray to a theater showing the deathless cinematic masterpiece "Rochelle, Rochelle"; and yada yada yada? If for nothing else, season four will always be remembered for two landmark episodes. In "The Outing," a college journalist makes the false assumption that George is gay (all together now -- "not that there's anything wrong with that"). And in "The Contest," the gang places bets as to see who among them is truly "master of their own domain."
