It takes five to six hours to film each narrator’s part, and Waters makes sure each date and name is pronounced correctly.

It helped that the writers were brilliant, of course. Seinfeld is the master of bottle episodes and has been recognized for its exceptional writing.

Most recently, Seinfeld was named No.2 Best Written TV Series of All Time by the Writers Guild of America.
