BWW Asks: Does GLEE Deserve a Fifth Season?

BWW Asks: Does GLEE Deserve a Fifth Season?With only four episodes left of the fourth season of the FOX musical dramedy GLEE, it appears that 'Gleeks' are starting to lose their patience with the direction the show has taken. Their biggest beef? The lack of air time given to series favorites Rachel (Lea Michele) Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Santana (Naya Rivera) who recently flew the coop from William McKinley High School to make it big in New York City.

In fact the complete absence of the trio in last night's episode has prompted some fans to start up a Twitter account with the hashtag '#NoNYCNoGleeForMe'. Among the postings from angry fans:

@BETHOFLORES: "when will they understand I DON'T give a damn about Marley, Jake or Kitty"

@suebrody1: "People are noticing and want Kurt, Rachel, and Santana."

@onthaedge487: "You want award noms? Less Lima, more NYC!"

The show is in for an even bigger challenge if it should continue on to a fifth season when New Direction Seniors Artie (Kevin McHale) and Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz) graduate and move on to parts unknown.

Is it time for FOX to bring the curtain down on the fictional high school Glee club? Or perhaps, develop an all-new spin-off series featuring the New York City residents as they face the trials and tribulations of trying to make it to the Great White Way? Tell us what you think!
