2 thoughts on “Long-Running TV Shows Rarely Ever Actually Use Their Own History

  1. This reminds me of Hush in the comics. I read the trade of this after hearing from some friends how good it was, but it bothered me that the doctor had just been introduced in that series with a background that was only present in that series.

  2. I second what Xander said. If you think TV shows overuse this trope, then comic books routinely grind it into a fine powder. Despite literally appearing in thousands of comics, we’re never far away from “yet another long lost enemy from their past” cropping up to face Wolverine, Batman, Captain America, or anyone, really.
