We love a good backstory episode of television. It’s one of the reasons we love Better Call Saul (which is all backstory, of course) … there’s nothing like a deeper dive on a certain character you love, a plot detail you’ve always wondered about, and storyline questions that linger.

Let us know your favorite tube throwbacks in the comments.
