29 Running Jokes In Movies And TV Shows You Probably Missed

Here's something you may not know. Whenever I have to write one of these introductions I like to leave little clues about where I buried that treasure. Seriously, go back and through them and you'll start to notice all these little hints.


The people who make our favorite TV shows and movies like to do that same thing. Have a hidden through line that only the most dedicated of fans will find.

wonder how you even missed it in the first place. It seems so obvious in retrospect.
