Is there a name for this?
Kind of a reverse Jump the Shark.
A marked point in which a TV show gets better.
I admit, this doesn’t happen as often, but it does happen.
Star Trek:TNG, DS9 and ENT all got better as they went along. Although I can’t really think of a specific episode to mark these.
Less Than Perfect got better with the introductino of Will Sasso and Patrick Warbutron in the second season.
MASH is probably the classic of this when they dropped Trapper and Blake and added the deeper characters of BJ and Potter.
