    Default Oldest Trick in the Book

    So I was watching season 2 of OITNB and apparently the bag of dog poop is the oldest trick in the book. My whole life I had assumed pointing at someone's chest and then flipping them in the nose when they look down was in fact the oldest trick. PW, what is the oldest trick in the book?

    Hey, look at that thing over there.

    And of course this one came well after the book was written.

    Might get more reaction if anyone knew what OITNB is.

    The oldest trick in the book is to smash them in the back of the head with a rock when they're not paying attention.

    Many people know Orange is the New Black, it's fairly popular.

    Thought it was just the tip?

    Isnt that a webseries? If its not on TV, it isn't "popular". Paris Hiltons sex vid is more watched online than that noname show.

    Merle's crusty obnoxious old man gimmick is actually the oldest trick in the book.

    A majority of the public has never seen literally every show on television (as in singularly). It's okay though, moving on.

    Credit where its due for keeping up with the game even though its a worse kept secret then just about anything. HR hit the nail on the head.

    Not sure if you're being serious but I'll post anyway.

    OITNB is hugely successful despite being only on Netflix. Most shows I watch are mostly on Netflix. I bet the majority of this forum know what it is. Perhaps not abbreviated but certainly they will know the name.

    Netflix is slowly becoming more popular than cable/satellite TV, for good reason. Watch when you want, what you want, and don't have to pay an arm and a leg for it.

    And don't they drop whole seasons at once, so none of that week to week waiting bullshit?

    If anyone's wondering who it was at Blockbuster who decided not to buy Netflix when it was only worth ten million dollars?

    It's TJ Wyoming.

    TJ Wyoming was the guy's name.

    Anyway, I think the oldest trick in the book is stabbing a guy in the back when he isn't looking and then taking all his food.

    I think some of the shows they go week to week, like it would be on TV, and some the upload by the season. If it's a show that is on a network but the episodes are available on Netflix, like Shameless or It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, then they don't upload the season until either next season starts it they get the ok from the network to upload it sooner.

    Ah okay, seemed like every show I was interested in always did the full so I assumed it was standard.

    Because it's popped in to my mind, and it's based around this, one if the best Kids in the Hall sketches.
