Funny, but the earlier seasons were better

"There are a few classics in this DVD series, but they pretty much can be seen in the "best of" disc. The remaining skits...eh...well...how does one say this...but it seemed like they were running out of steam in this season. WAAAAY too many skits are forgettable or (ack) just overall not very funny. & I could not bear to sit through an entire episode devoted to the Queen of England. Even 3 stars seems pretty generous.
I love Kids in the Hall, but unless you're a diehard fan, I would recommend skipping this season."
A Dip in Form Versus Season 3

(4 out of 5 stars)
"Most KITH fans agree that there seemed to be a swoon in Season 4 driven by a lack of creative spark. I would have to concur. While the troupe have rounded out their performances by this season, the material itself drops off. Still there are high points and I think the idea was that they were hoping to be more daring as shown but their lack of reliance on the old standby characters. Many of the recurring sketches are new, such as the socially edgy "Steps" featuring a group of gay men hanging out on the steps shooting the breeze.
The format is well-established by now: 4 discs; 3 of epsiodes; 1 of "Best Of", commentary, rare performances and everything else to which we've grown accustomed.
Personally I think it's worth owning. If you have the other 3 sets then why not just keep completing the collection?"
Season four slumber

"I love Kids in the Hall and had seasons 1-3 for a long time. I wanted to complete the series, so I bought the last two season. While watching the last two seasons, I noticed the show got boring. I didnt laugh as much in season four and I was very disappointed by it. Im happy to see that other reviewers fell the same way about it. Still a few laughs, but not as good as earlier seasons."
