My husband and I are really curious as to which TV show was the first to show two characters texting each other. We've tried Googling for this piece of trivia with no luck. He thinks it's probably The OC or something similar; I suspect there was an earlier instance. I figure if someone knows of a texting on a show and none of us can think of an earlier instance, that's probably it.
Please include, if possible:
* name of show
* episode title or number
* which characters were texting
An approximate airdate would be nice, too. Thanks!
