    I would like to point out that the clip you used of the girls singing was actully a boys vs. girls compitition and could have very well happened. Using "No Air" or "Keep Me Hanging On" would have proven your point you were trying to make better. Beyond that, I'm one of the few fans that sees this as a good thing. Two words for you, "Spin... Off" All Ryan Murphy sees is dollar signs. In his head, he will now have two shows... That make twice the money as just one show. I will probably stop watching Glee and the new show if that happens, I may not.

    The real question is... Can the same chemistry that has made this show so popular be recreated over and over again each year? Is it the charaters? Is it the writing? No one knows. I don't mind the change up as long as RM remember the fans want to know what happens to the charaters we've grown to love and lets us know what happens to them.

    I would agree with this Ridiculist post! The entire show Glee is centered around a school with a budget problem in which the Glee Club and the Cheerleaders (Cheerios) fight over school funds. However, the Glee club puts on performances every week in different costumes and utilizing special effects like video screens, lighting, and even fireworks! For performances that are just seen by the class, no audience! There's also a 10 piece band on call whenever the kids need them to sing... THAT is unrealistic. But, who cares it's TV! It's such a shame that Glee is getting rid of it's 3 most popular characters... and using the excuse of realism to do so. That is just RIDICULOUS!
