HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER (SEASON 4)
While just about every other sitcom today is either suffering from total creative bankruptcy or striving as hard as possible to steer away from the accepted sitcom format, How I Met Your Mother somehow manages to retain the style of the latter while not at all being subjected to the former. It’s a show that I fully expected to loathe upon my initial viewing of it (A laugh track? What is this, the Middle Ages?), only to find myself slowly taken in by its clever writing, recurring gags, and a hilarious cast of characters (with the two highlights of course being Neil Patrick Harris and Jason Segel). This winning combo continues throughout Season 4. From a storytelling perspective, the season stumbles a bit, but frankly, that’s never been the selling point of the show. This series has always succeeded on the basis of individual episodes, and in that regard, this season doesn’t disappoint.
Notable Extras: DVD & Blu-ray – Audio commentaries on four episodes, “Barney Stinson: That Guy’s Awesome” Music Video, Eriksen’s Fight Club, and Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Panel Discussion.
