From Amazon.co.uk

The fourth season of the charming sitcom How I Met Your Mother (or HIMYM to fans) remains as inventive yet as heartfelt as ever. The writers pull off all kinds of narrative tricks, and though events are sometimes absurd, they never feel gimmicky--the show has a solid grip on its characters and keeps everything grounded in their ongoing lives. Devoted womanizer Barney (Neil Patrick Harris, riding a wave of popularity in the wake of Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog) can't understand why he's having actual feelings for Robin (Cobie Smulders), whose career as a TV anchorwoman is floundering. Marshall (Jason Segel) and Lily (Alyson Hannigan) struggle with holding on to their youthful passion under the pressures of getting older. And Ted (Josh Radnor) struggles to follow through on his engagement to Stella (Sarah Chalke)--a relationship that (spoiler alert!) capsizes midway through the episodes. While the season-long story lines are carefully teased out, each episode is flush with clever or daffy ideas, among them a list of Canadian sex acts, Barney trying to pick up hot chicks while disguised as an 80-year-old man, multiple interventions (culminating in an intervention intervention), Marshall's charts and graphs, Barney's fake family, wooo! girls, the cheerleader effect, the front porch test, and the Naked Man, among many others. Attentive fans will be rewarded with a wealth of small references to past episodes. Though there are moments when the fundamental premise--that this is all part of an unbearably long story that a future Ted is telling to his children--feels obnoxiously stretched (toward the end of the season, one episode in particular builds up to a false revelation), for the most part HIMYM is a sterling example of a well-sustained sitcom; the characters have successfully grown over the four seasons without losing everything that made them funny in the first place. --Bret Fetzer

***MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS***

Sometimes when everything on TV seems rubbish, I stop it from being rubbish and make it awesome. To do this I watch a show called HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER.

Season 4 carries straight on from the cliff-hanger ending of How I Met Your Mother - Season 3 [DVD] when Ted Mosby asks his girlfriend Stella to marry him. Told from the point of view of future Ted telling his kids the story of he met their mother, Ted and his friends Barney, Robin, Lily and Marshall face the everyday hurdles of modern-day living, love, careers and getting older. There's some really funny scenes in this series including the very memorable Naked Man episode as well as Ted's wedding; Barney not wanting to admit he's too old for this "stuff" and also trying to deal with his feelings for Robin; Robin copes with boredom and unemployment and awkward working hours; Lily plays with the idea of babies whilst her husband Marshall suffers a day at work wearing no trousers.

The highlight of the show for me (and anyone else I've spoken to about this show) has to be Barney Stintson and in this season his is as brilliant as ever, providing even more laughs, one-liners and new dating and bro rules. All of the other characters seem to suffer a little in this season though as I felt Lily and Marshall have became a little too mushy that it's becoming a bit ridiculous and unbelievable and for some reason the writers have changed Robin's character quite a bit, making her out to be not as kind and loveable as she was portrayed in earlier seasons. Ted has also became a little petty and quite miserable in a fair few episodes too.

Just like the other three series, How I Met Your Mother Series Four is full of in-jokes, clever writing, witty humour and unforgettable catchphrases that you will be quoting for months. Best show on telly by a mile.

After the extreme slowness in releasing season 2, it's great to see new box sets coming out quickly now. If you haven't caught the show yet, the format is that in the future Ted tells his children a story of how he met their mother. This arc story allows us to meet his friends who are his sometimes girlfriend Robin, his unpleasant womanizer friend Barney, and Marshall and Lilly, a happy couple.

Season 4 keeps up the high standard as the characters become thirtysomethings. Mild spoilers are that the triangle storyline involving Stella, Ted and Robin moves on in dramatic fashion and Lilly and Marshall struggle with the children question. And Barney gets a more rounded and mature, but no less funny, character with feelings and humanity. There's also much fun to be had with the main leads' pregnancies, which aren't written into the show, but which are hidden in amusing ways. Most significantly the arc story takes large steps forward with hints that it may at last be getting close to revealing the truth about the show's title. The nice thing is that even though this mystery maguffin has been going on too long now, it's no longer all that important as it did what was required by giving the show a structure and making us care about everyone. Roll on season 5.
