It’s Time to Say Goodbye…

200_sThe start of the fall season gets everyone here at 4E just a little bit too excited. It’s the season of PSL’s, cozy flannels, UGG boots (we get it, we’re basic) and most importantly: fall TV shows!excited

Fall is the season of answers. You get closure for everything that happened during that summer finale and no longer have to re-watch trailers in a crazy attempt to find clues as to what’s going to happen in the next season.

With every season premiere however, comes the return of TV shows that can’t seem to get the hint. It’s their bajillionth season premiere, and their episodes are so predictable that you literally say the words as they’re coming out of the actor’s mouth. So in true 4E fashion, we’ve made a list of 5 TV shows that need to play their last finale and stay gone.

Bones: Bones is one of the 100,000 crime shows on TV that are the exact same except for the fact that this one focuses on- you guessed it- bones. To be honest I only started watching this show because the character Booth used to be on Buffy the Vampire Slayer (#tbt). Aside from the fact that the show focuses on bones and one of the main characters is really hot, I’m not sure why it’s been renewed for it’s 11th season.

The Real World: Raise your hand if you ever thought about applying for TRW once you turned 21. This mess of a reality show is one of the longest running reality shows in history. When it first came out (in 1992), it was considered to be a good conversation starter about “young-adulthood” problems like sex, drugs and drinking. But now we all know it’s only good for ruining whatever little was left of your professional life and getting you Instagram followers.

Maury: “You are NOT the father” are words that will forever be stuck in my head. If the first thing you watched on TV during the week wasn’t Maury, what kind of childhood were you living? This was probably one of the most scandalous shows I watched when I was little, filled with lie detectors, people fighting on stage and paternity tests galore. Once you grow up watching Maury, you begin to recognize the pattern and ultimately get tired of people going to a TV show to get testing done rather than just going to a hospital (adulting done right).

Jeopardy: I may or may not get a lot of slack for this, but Jeopardy is one of the most boring game shows I’ve ever watched in my entire existence. Alex Tribeck just isn’t entertaining to watch and this game never fails to make me feel like an idiot when I don’t know the answer to something. Plus, everyone knows that Wheel of Fortune is where the real fun is at. Plus, isn’t it always awkward when people don’t know what the answer is?

Supernatural: Just to be clear, I LOVE Supernatural. There’s nothing like a good Winchester demon hunting party. But when it’s been going on for 10 SEASONS, you might need to give it a rest. This show has touched upon everything supernatural (get it?), including demons, witches, werewolves, wendigos, spirits, ghosts…the list goes on. When you’ve done absolutely anything and everything, what else is there to cover? Someone should just give the Winchester brothers a break and end it on a high note, if that’s possible with a show about demons.

What TV shows are you guys tired of watching? Hopefully they don’t have 11 seasons worth of episodes…


It’s a Full House! (Again)


Now I’ve had controlled asthma for the past 10 years, but when I heard this news I definitely had to reach for my inhaler.  If you haven’t been able to tell by the title, FULL HOUSE IS BACK and better than ever! *insert tears of joy*

This won’t be an exact renewal of the Full House series, but rather a spin-off titled Fuller House, according to John Stamos’s recent interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live. According to Stamos, 13 new episodes will be released on Netflix next year.  The show is set to focus on DJ Tanner, Kimmy Gibbler, and of course, the sassiest little sister of all, Stephanie!

So. Much. Sass.

In honor of the greatest television show to ever grace our TV screens, let’s look at some of what 4E thinks are the best moments from Full House!

D’awwww, look at actual fetus Mary-Kate (or Ashley?) exercising!

FHDancingThat time Steph, Uncle Joey, and Danny taught us how to dance.

When Michelle provided us with the catchphrase we would use for years and years to come.

When Uncle Jesse made us all feel better for not being able to ice skate like a professional… face planting is expected, guys!


Annnnd finally, when they kept the magic of Christmas alive…even when your own family lost your Christmas presents (I’m still salty, Mom).

We can’t wait for this series to be featured on our Netflix home pages and, if you don’t have Netflix, get with the program!  Uncle Jesse is waiting!  Happy binge watching, Hoyas.


Childhood Stars Comeback?


With all these surprise albums and collaborations coming out, we at 4E have noticed that we’ve been having a hard time keeping up with who’s who in the music world. Take FKA Twigs, for example. She has suddenly blown up and all we find ourselves doing is scratching our heads at the mention of her name.

Times like these are when we wish we were back in the glory days of the early 2000’s, when we all listened to Hannah Montana on our Disney Mix Sticks and ‘N sync on our Hit Clips.

To ease your confusion with the present day music scene, we’ve decided to make a list of our top 5 childhood music stars that we wish would make a comeback. Hopefully this list will also help ease the fact that Disney Channel and Nickelodeon are no longer the same channels they used to be. #TBT

  1. Aaron Carter. This little stud first gained popularity because of the fact that his older brother Nick Carter is in the Backstreet Boys. His first studio album had the hits “I Want Candy” and “Aaron’s Party (Come and Get it)” that had us all bouncing in our seats and jamming to our Walkmans. We miss how it felt to be carefree kids, going to house parties at 10 years old that we thought were so cool. The feeling of pure ignorance as a kid is what made Aaron Carter so successful, and as college students struggling through midterms, I’m sure we could all use some of that right now. aaron carter
  2. The Cheetah Girls. Who didn’t love this dynamic pop group? Their songs were filled with messages of girl power and staying true to yourself, and their movies took us on adventures through Spain and India. Everyone had the lyrics to “Strut” and “Cheetah Sisters” memorized (we’re sure you still do) and in all they were just a feel-good group that reminded us all that we have friends that have our backs through the good and the bad.the cheetah girls
  3. Aly and A.J. If you don’t remember this duo, you’re lying. These are the pop princesses that brought you “Potential Breakup Song” and “Chemicals React” (which we still jam to these days) and were part of the few Disney Channel stars that could actually sing and were not just thrown a recording contract for being on a hit T.V. show. We loved them for their electro-pop influences and their ability to act as well (remember Phil of the Future?) and we need more of their sassy/sweetness in our lives.Aly_&_AJ_-_Insomniatic
  4. Jesse McCartney. This hunk was in the hearts of all teenagers who had a radio/eyes during the 2000’s. He appeared in shows like Summerland and All My Children, and was in the boy band Dream Street, but really captured our hearts when he went solo and released his first album “Beautiful Soul”. This album won him multiple Kids Choice Awards (throwback!) and paved his Disney career until 2007. We miss his dreamy eyes and gorgeous hair and wish he would call our pretty faces sometime. jesse mccartney
  5. Lizzie McGuire/Hilary Duff. The epitome of the 2000’s was without a doubt, Lizzie McGuire. The TV show and following movie inspired preteens and adolescents everywhere to follow your dreams and that it was okay to have an alter ego that was a cartoon character. Her music was equally uplifting, and we still haven’t gotten over the fact that Paolo set her up to be embarrassed in front of Italy. But who else would show us what dreams are made of?Lizzie and Isabella

There you have it, our wishlist for surprise albums from our (and your) favorite artists of the early 2000’s. Feeling nostalgic yet?


4E’s Guide to Dating Apps: The Good, the Bad, and the Cuddly…


College: Where students fresh out of high school are dropped in the middle of a random city in order to fend for themselves for the next four years. While you’re here you’re expected to study (and party) hard, grow as a person, make friends for a lifetime and, if your family is traditional enough, find a soulmate!

Thanks to the age of technology, there’s a whole world of apps that are designed to bring people together for all kinds of purposes. Not to worry, 4E has delved (maybe a little too deep) into the world of dating apps and has resurfaced with our top 5, in hopes that boys and girls alike can find love in a hopeless place (like a Lau cubicle). Here we go!

  1. Tinder. The holy grail/mother of all dating apps that is Tinder claims the number 1 spot because it was designed specifically with the college student in mind. In August 2012, Tinder was first piloted at the University of Southern California, and has since blown up around the country. Don’t feel like being a contributing member of society but want to boost your self esteem? Tinder allows you to search from men and women in your area and between your choice of age range, and if you like their profile, you can swipe right. A couple of hours on this bad boy and you’ll be raking enough matches to make you feel like you actually did something productive with your day.o-MINDY-PROJECT-TINDER-570
  2. Grindr. Despite the suggestive name, the idea behind Grindr is actually  pretty genius. Grindr, like Tinder, is location based, but is catered to males specifically. So if you’re a guy looking for someone to hang out, or go on a date with, then this is definitely your app! What we like about it is that guys can only see the information you want them to see, so you don’t have to worry about the creepy stalker types that want to find out where you live (Degrassi flashbacks, anyone?). The makers of Grindr also make it clear that this app isn’t just for dating, so if you just want a friend, you’re welcome too! If you are looking for a date however, there are more than 5 million guys on this app, so you’ll be sure to have your hands full searching! grindr
  3. Cuddlr. In a previous 4E post, we described who we would want to match with on Cuddlr just because the idea seemed so perfect, and we still stand by it. Just in case you’ve been living under a rock and missed that post, Cuddlr is a (surprise!) location based app designed not for dating, but for cuddling (which could eventually turn into dating if you cuddle enough). You read correctly, based on who is near you, Cuddlr allows you to meet up with someone and share a cuddle- no strings attached. With this app you don’t have to worry about anyone having intentions other than sharing a cuddle, so just in case Bradley Cooper or your boyfriend pillow are unavailable, this app is perfect for you! Cuddlr
  4. Coffee Meets Bagel. This app right here is for all you ladies who are tired of wondering where the good guys are, or so the website says. We must confess, the name was what brought us to this app. Coffee? Bagels? Sign us up! With this app, ladies are given one “Bagel” at noon and can decide on whether to “Like” or “Pass” someone else’s bagel. Just to clarify, no your picture is not a bagel. This app is designed for busy young professionals who want to spice up their coffee breaks, hence the name coffee meets bagel. It’s perfect for the busy Georgetown woman who doesn’t have hours to spend swiping or would rather watch Netflix. cmb
  5. DateMySchool. We must admit,  we were kind of skeptical about this one when we first heard about it. We asked ourselves, “would we want to date specifically someone from Georgetown? What if it doesn’t work out and we have Econ together???” But then we looked closer and saw that anyone with an “.edu” address could sign up, and that you could filter your searches by school, departments, etc. If you’re big on privacy, a plus is that DateMySchool makes you invisible to people who are in the same school or department as you by default – that way you don’t have to worry about Eric from OPIM knowing that you’re stalking him online. If you want to make yourself visible you can change this in your privacy settings anytime. With this app, the college world is your oyster! 5303f7d984111.image

There you have it readers, the wonderful world of dating apps! The world is yours folks and now you have no excuse to not have a significant other to bring home for your next family reunion!
