NWoTD - Francheese

Francheese - when a previously good television or movie series is spun off into a cheesy direction. Sort of like the addition of the highly marketable Ewoks to the first Star Wars trilogy or the addition of the incredibly annoying Jar Jar Binks to the second trilogy. I'm sure there are dozens of other examples of francheese.

Got a good example of a franchise taking a turn for the cheese (and the money, of course)? Leave it in the comments.

And, as always, hit up the Fictionarium for more glorious examples of newly minted words.
