'''Basic Trope''': A series improves because of some change.
* '''Straight''': ''Alice & Bob'' improves greatly because [[EnsembleDarkhorse Charlie]] is [[MauveShirt given more screen time]].
* '''Exaggerated''': The show turns from a DarthWiki/SoBadItsHorrible show to [[SugarWiki/SoCoolItsAwesome the greatest show ever made]] when Charlie is given more screen time.
* '''Downplayed''': The show starts out [[SoOkayItsAverage as just passable]], but later episodes and writers work out the flaws to make the show much more notable and interesting.
* '''Justified''': A change in the execution of a series ''can'' be just what it needs to be refreshed.
* '''Inverted''': JumpingTheShark and/or TheyChangedItNowItSucks.
* '''Subverted''': [[CreatorsPet Charlie]] being given more screen time seems to be a mistake, as fans react badly to it.
* '''Double Subverted''': When fans complain, Charlie is given more screen time than originally, but not to MartyStu levels like currently.
* '''Parodied''': Alice and Bob are talking about "Carl and Dave", the ShowWithinAShow, and talk about how much better it is, but to the audience of ''Alice and Bob'', it still [[StylisticSuck sucks bigtime]] and the change is one that we wouldn't care about.
* '''Zig Zagged''': Some changes to the series are good, others...not so much.
** [[StatusQuoIsGod No changes are made to the story or characters]].
** The series [[JumpingTheShark jumps the shark]] or enters a DorkAge as a result of TheyChangedItNowItSucks.
** The show is great from the beginning, so no changes are necessary.
* '''Enforced''': ExecutiveMeddling
* '''Lampshaded''': ???
* '''Invoked''': Bob rises to meet a challenge he didn't (or wouldn't have) before, and everyone thinks this is his CrowningMomentOfAwesome and looks forward to seeing more of that.
* '''Exploited''': ???
* '''Defied''': No lasting changes are made to ''Alice & Bob'', and writers are heavily sanctioned if they try to do so.
* '''Discussed''': ???
* '''Conversed''': ???
* '''Played For Laughs''': AndThereWasMuchRejoicing as TheScrappy was KilledOffForReal
