'''Basic Trope''': A series improves because of some change.
* '''Straight''': ''Alice & Bob'' improves greatly because [[EnsembleDarkhorse Charlie]] is [[MauveShirt given more screen time]].
* '''Exaggerated''': In season 1 of ''Alice & Bob'', the show is full of [[TheScrappy unlikeable characters]], a PlotHole ridden plot ([[NoPlotNoProblem if you can call it a plot]]), SpecialEffectFailure, jokes that are either unfunny or [[DudeNotFunny offensive]], awful, {{Narm}}-ridden acting, and a [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking limited]] [[RealIsBrown colour palette]]. Kick in season 2, most of the unlikeable characters either develop or get killed off, the lore is greatly expanded so most of the plot holes get resolved, the humor is either [[CerebusSyndrome dropped]] or gets much, much better, the actors are replaced with amazing ones, and the cinematographer gets fired.
* '''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.
* '''Averted''':
** [[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
