* ''Series/SleepyHollow'', after a popular first season, suffered from a rankings downturn during its second season that sidelined Ichabod and Abbie's relationship in favor of family drama and {{Base Breaking Character}}s. The series was still renewed for a third season, but the ending of ''that'' season [[spoiler:killing off Abbie]] has led many viewers to permanently abandon the show.

* The second season of ''Series/{{Lost}}'' has its strengths, most notably introducing fan-favourite characters like Desmond and Ben, but also suffers from many stalls in the plot with little to no questions being answered. The writers apparently picked up on this, as although the third season had a rough start, the remainder of it really started kicking up the plot twists and actually started answering some major plot threads. It still has its detractors, but is often agreed to at least be a step up from season 2.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/ANightmareonElmStreet2FreddysRevenge'' is considered by some to be one of the worst films in the ''Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet'' franchise, and [[Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet3DreamWarriors the third film]] is almost universally considered an improvement, and one of the ''best'' films of the series, and [[Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet4TheDreamMaster the fourth]] has plenty of fans too. The [[Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet5TheDreamChild fifth]] and [[Film/FreddysDeadTheFinalNightmare sixth]] films are hated even worse than the second though.

** The [[Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse MCU]] in general seems to fall into this with each sequel they release:
*** While ''{{Film/Thor}}'' is a decent and fun introduction of the character, ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld'' is seen as boring and very unmemorable, with lots of wasted potential, in part thanks to its TroubledProduction.
*** ''Film/TheAvengersAgeOfUltron'' is overall less liked than its predecesor, with a bloated plot, setting too many future films, and a wasted villian in Ultron as common complaints.
*** ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2'' fared better than most, but a sizable portion of the fanbase feels that the film lacks the charm of the original, has some excessive humor that undercuts a lot of the dramatic moments of the story, and suffers a slow second act.
*** ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'', however, [[AvertedTrope averts]] this rather spectacularly, and is generally seen as the highest point of the entire franchise, and one of the best superhero films ever.
