Glee Season Five was, for me, a disappointment. I thought the first three seasons were great. But Season Four made what I feel was an error in judgment. Faced with the problem of a number of the most popular characters graduating from McKinley High, the creators chose to try and retain them in the show, splitting the action and the plots between Ohio and New York City, while at the same time adding new characters in both locations. The result was that everything was spread too thin, the flow of action became disjointed, and the show suffered as a result. They would've been better off by either splitting off the older characters into a new 'After Glee' show of their own, following them in New York by themselves, or taking the chance on just sticking with - and developing the younger characters and keeping everything going with New Directions at McKinley High. But now with Season Five, it seems that the creators not only didn't resolve the structural problems with Season Four, they've continued to add to them in Season Five with what amounts to a complete loss of direction as well as any sense of what really made the show work in the first place. And of course the death of Cory Montieth cast a pall over everything.
