When a string is longer than necessary, usually leads to a phenomenon known as flanderización. That is, the characters become caricatures of themselves. These are some of the most famous examples.

When a successful series on the air usually hold several years. In some cases, the plan from the beginning is to reach maximum number of seasons, but in other stretches the argument to get the maximum benefit at the cost of a product that works. While this sometimes does not adversely affect the quality of the series, it's natural to result in a phenomenon known as flanderización ( flanderization , in English). The best example is, as its name, Ned Flanders on The Simpsons, but there are many others.

But what exactly is flanderización? According to TV Tropes, a site that collects the tricks that are used to write fiction and that was the one that coined the term, is to exaggerate a feature of a character to cause it to be the main defining feature of this person. In his words:

The act of taking a simple (usually less) action or trait of a character in a play and exaggerate it more and more until it consumes the character completely. Almost always the trait / action becomes completely bizarre and becomes their defining characteristic. The sitcom and the characters are particularly susceptible to this, as are peripheral characters in programs that last long.

As mentioned, the most notable case is that of Ned Flanders, who began his television career as a kind of Homer Simpson contrast, the pusillanimous religious neighbor facing a bit cynical protagonist believer. Homer himself is another example of flanderización, it went from being awkward and silly to become a person just plain stupid.

The flanderización: Sheldon Cooper


Anyway, it would be unfair to cite only this series, which also is one of the longest-lived of the story. Another of the most obvious examples is the Sheldon Cooper, the character played by Jim Parsons in The Big Bang Theory . What started as a somewhat extravagant and maniacal genius has finally become a person with Asperger syndrome. Of course it's likely that this has not bothered to Parsons, who has won two Emmys and a Golden Globe for her performance.

The evolution of flanderización often subtle, it is something that happens gradually and not one chapter to another. Thus, the peculiar feature takes control of the character to make it yours. And, remember, not always a bad thing, but it may serve to give more depth to a character or to make get a starring role.

As for the forms of evolution there are all kinds, but generally tend to go to worse, in the sense that they who suffer the worst person flanderización, though not necessarily worst character -. Barney Stinson, Neil Patrick Harris in How I Met Your Mother, has always been a favorite of fans of the series, but if you missed that post was because his insanity was always more, even when his character evolved. And if this series is considered by many the successor to Friends, in its predecessor found a similar character, Joey Tribbiani, who suffered a flanderización similar to Homer.

Something similar happened to Britta Perry, Gillian Jacobs in Community, which at first seemed to have booked a leading role and eventually lost importance as intelligence lost. But in a series as goal like this, something like that would not go unnoticed by the other characters and Chapter 18 of the third season, Jeff blurts seemed smarter than him when they met.

Unfortunately, the flanderización of another character of Community, the Chevy Chase Pierce Hawthorne ended up making the actor abandon the series . Chase, who has shown their support for various Democratic candidates did not feel comfortable to play someone so racist.

Anyway, not all evolution or change is an example of this phenomenon. Moreover, there is a series based solely on this, as Breaking Bad. In this case, the change that we are told Walter White from the title and not a caricature, but the consequence (logical or not) of their actions. Because Heisenberg never be Flanders.
