How I saw it: on video (rented from Netflix), over the past few days, as well as any number of times on television
Subjective Rating: 8/10 (Great).
Objective Rating: 9/10 (1 point off for cinematography) c. 3.3/4 (Very good).

About the same quality as season three – it’s not consistent, a few episodes are bad, but it’s usually hilarious. Adding Alvin to the regular cast is a welcome change (although he’s not actually in many more episodes than before).
