We’ll likely find out if this is the end for the show or not tomorrow, and I never thought I would say this, but I just don’t care anymore. I’ll watch a fifth season if it happens (and I oddly think it would be better than this season was because everybody will be in more command of what works and doesn’t work about the show), but this is no longer a show that’s capable of much beyond repeating elements it thinks the audience will like over and over again. It’s become a jukebox musical version of itself, endlessly spinning its greatest hits to a crowd that grows smaller and smaller until it finally disappears. Even yesterday, I would have been sad at a cancellation, thanks to all of the good times I’ve had with this show over the years and even in this season. But not anymore. It might be time to be done. The earth, it has been salted.

I remember when this show was about community college.
