If you’re anything like us, the first thing that comes to mind when someone says ‘Easter egg’ is delicious chocolate, but we’re not discussing that variety today. No, we’re talking about TV and movie Easter eggs, which are little hidden extras, messages or inside jokes that are meant to be spotted only by the obsessed or observant. We didn’t notice most of these ones first time around! Let’s take a look and check what you might have missed out on!
