What do you call it when a work that really isn't that great has a sequel which improves upon all of its flaws? For example, I once read a book that had a severe lack of characterization for everyone but the main character, but the sequel immediately started to flesh out the supporting cast a lot more right within the first few chapters.

Any examples, or does this exist already?
