This review is from: How I Met Your Mother - Season 4 [DVD] (DVD)
***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.
Although this season is hilarious, it isn't quite as funny or as clever as some of the previous seasons but is still well above the quality of all the other sitcoms that are currently running (with the possible exception of The Big Bang Theory - Season 1 [DVD] ) . If you've not seen any of HIMYM yet, I'd definitely recommend watching this from the beginning but whatever you do - do not miss out on this show. It is criminally un-heard of generally in the UK but that doesn't stop it from being legend..(wait for it)...dary!
