Gintoki, Shinpachi, and Kagura return as the fun-loving but broke members of the Yorozuya team! Living in an alternate-reality Edo, where swords are prohibited and alien overlords have conquered Japan, they try to thrive on doing whatever work they can get their hands on. However, Shinpachi and Kagura still haven't been paid... Does Gin-chan really spend all that cash playing pachinko?

Meanwhile, when Gintoki drunkenly staggers home one night, an alien spaceship crashes nearby. A fatally injured crew member emerges from the ship and gives Gintoki a strange, clock-shaped device, warning him that it is incredibly powerful and must be safeguarded. Mistaking it for his alarm clock, Gintoki proceeds to smash the device the next morning and suddenly discovers that the world outside his apartment has come to a standstill. With Kagura and Shinpachi at his side, he sets off to get the device fixed; though, as usual, nothing is ever that simple for the Yorozuya team.

Filled with tongue-in-cheek humor and moments of heartfelt emotion, Gintama's fourth season finds Gintoki and his friends facing both their most hilarious misadventures and most dangerous crises yet.

Alright... so. Seeing as this was one of the highest rated anime in myanimelist, I gave it a shot... without watching seasons 1-3.
Did I ever laugh out loud? No. Will this make you laugh out loud? Well, it depends. Everyone has a different sense of humour, ey?
Are the characters interesting and funny? Yes. Despite a lot of clichés being used, I found that I actually didn't mind them.

Some of the comedy episodes are better than the rest, true, but isn't that the case of most Anime? Some episodes are always better than others.
It's really a "slice of life" show that isn't really meant to ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (34/51 eps)
The next two paragraphs can be summarized to "the plot is skip-able"

I think most people will agree when I say Gintama is primarily a comedy series before anything. This is mostly what I like about it. I watch it to laugh, and sometimes I do, but not all the time. Sometimes there's actual plot or "serious" arcs which are seemingly put in for no other reason than to disrupt the shows comedic pacing or show that Gintama has some merit besides being a comedy series, but honestly for me they just ruin the comedic flow.

The plot is not that stellar. So I wont judge it ...

Spoiler free review

There's no simple way to begin dissecting a show as directionless as this, so I’ll start by addressing the comedy. You think it would try to be more innovative and varied with its selection as the show goes on, but the same juvenile gags keep on getting repeated each season. I mean, there is a reason why I haven't laughed in over 100 episodes. If the show fails to make me laugh, it can at least do something by changing up the style to prevent me from getting bored. With each passing episode, the show starts to feel more like watching a slide ...
