  1. It just occurs to me that Flanderization is meant to be neutral...but due to circumstances is mostly used negatively and therefore seen as a negative term.

    I'm sure there are positive cases of it...in comedy shows more often than not, but it's rarer overall.

      When the character had been so bland, one-note, uncharismatic, and absolutely boring every time they were onscreen, subjecting it to Flanderization to bring out some quirks sounds pretty positive to me.

      At first, I thought the term was named after Ned Flanders from The Simpsons.

      It is named after him and he's a positive example.

      Ned is nowhere even remotely a positive example of Flanderisation. He started out more well-rounded as a character. He was a good, religious man - yes, but he was also materialistic, a bit flawed in how he could flaunt his positive attributes to others less fortunate, he could be overly optimistic and risky, and he was all-around just like Homer, if Homer was more considerate and less dysfunctional, but could still lose his temper, get competitive, get frustrated, and acted more like an actual human being.

      He was later flanderised into just an overly insane religious nut who was the kindest man on the face, to the point that Ned's life revolved around religion and nothing else, and making both Rod and Todd suffer for it as a result as well, with Ned regularly overreacting to the littlest of things, and banning anything even remotely mature.

      That's not to say his flanderisation wasn't gradual though. There's a sweet spot between Seasons 4 and 10 where Flanders' was still relatively normal, but his kinder and more screamish attributes were played to brilliant effect (Ann Landers is a Boring Ol' Biddy is one of the most classic Flanders moments around for example). But later seasons took him way too far to the point of making him an awful character, making Jerkass Ned a very real thing. I think it got lessened down a bit when he hooked up with Edna, but there were a good few seasons where he was really at rock bottom thanks to Flanderisation.

      He "was" a positive example.

      Since the show went on so long, I did assume he would've gotten the negative side as well.
