Platonov (Russian: Платонов, also known as Fatherlessness and A Play Without a Title)[1] is the name in English given to an early, untitled play in four acts written by Anton Chekhov in 1878. It was the first large-scale drama by Chekhov,[1] written specifically for Maria Yermolova, rising star of Maly Theatre.[2] Yermolova rejected the play and it was not published until 1923.[1]


The lead character is Mikhail Platonov, a disillusioned provincial schoolmaster. The play is set in a dilapidated country house in the Russian provinces. Landowner Anna Petrovna, Sofia Yegorovna, wife of Anna Petrovna's stepson, and one of his colleagues fall in love with the married Platonov. He thinks society is without ideas and principles, but is aware that he himself is very much part of that society. He is compared to Hamlet and Don Juan, and likes to think of himself as a witty and intellectually stimulating entertainer. In the end, he recognises his hopeless position between the four women and retreats into alcohol. Finally, Sofia understands that she cannot hope for a new life with Platonov and shoots him.


"The Lady with the Dog" (Russian: Дама с собачкой, translit. Dama s sobachkoy)[a] is a short story by Anton Chekhov first published in 1899. It tells the story of an adulterous affair between a Russian banker and a young lady he meets while vacationing in Yalta. The story comprises four parts: part I describes the initial meeting in Yalta, part II the consummation of the affair and the remaining time in Yalta, part III Gurov's return to Moscow and his visit to Anna's town, and part IV Anna's visits to Moscow. One of Chekhov's most famous pieces of short fiction, Vladimir Nabokov declared that it was one of the greatest short stories ever written.[6]


The Legend of Korra

3.1.1 Book One: Air

3.1.2 Book Two: Spirits

3.1.3 Book Three: Change

3.1.4 Book Four: Balance

Tenzin has a longstanding friendship with Lin Beifong, who is the daughter of Toph Beifong, and at one point the two characters were romantically involved.[3] Tenzin offered her comfort and a higher level of trust was reached between the two. However, their romantic relationship deteriorated, partially because Tenzin wanted children while Lin did not and partially because of Lin's abrasive nature.[4] It was during this time that Pema, who was an acolyte of the Air Nation, approached Tenzin and confessed her feelings for him. This indirectly led to the end of Tenzin's romantic relationship with Lin and the beginning of his relationship with Pema. The two eventually married, and would have four children: Jinora, Ikki, Meelo and Rohan.


Despite being badly outnumbered, Tenzin fought valiantly, refusing to yield. He was eventually overcome by the four, sustaining severe injuries in the battle.[22] The four took all the residents of the Northern Air Temple as prisoner, save Kai who was thought dead, but ultimately survived. Tenzin was essentially incapacitated for the rest of his time at the Northern Air Temple. He was eventually rescued by Asami, Bolin and Mako.[23] Weeks later, a fully recuperated Tenzin presided over Jinora's ceremony, installing her as an airbending master. He announced that while Korra, who sustained serious injuries in her brutal fight with Zaheer, recuperated, the Air Nation would assist in restoring peace and balance to the world, essentially taking over the Avatar's role.[24]

Tenzin, Pema and three of their four children: Tenzin (foreground), Meelo (son, center), Jinora (daughter, rear left), Ikki (daughter, rear center) and Pema (rear right)


Tenzin is highly skilled in Airbending which utilizes aikido and the chinese martial arts techniques of Baguazhang and Xing Yi Quan.[32][33][34][35] The series' creators consulted a professional martial artist in the design of the show's fighting style.[36] Airbending represents the element of freedom,[37] and is categorized as the most elusive of the "four bending arts". Airbending involves "smooth coiling and uncoiling actions"; dynamic footwork, throws, and open-handed techniques; and swift, evasive maneuvers designed to evoke the "intangibility and explosive power of wind". These techniques are intended to increase the difficulty for opponents to attack directly or land a lethal blow—allowing airbenders to defend themselves while also protecting their attacker from injury—a pacifist-philosophy that is prevalent among the Air Nomad people.


Troll culture features a complex system of romance featuring four "quadrants", that was specifically designed to encourage shipping among Homestuck fans.[5] Homestuck trolls are by default bi- or pansexual; this normalization has been described by a fan as "incredible for all the bi and gay kids out there ... seeing loads of couples that don’t think twice about how they’re dating somebody of the same gender of themselves."[12]




Homestuck is a webcomic written, illustrated and animated by Andrew Hussie as part of MS Paint Adventures. The series centers on a group of teenagers who unwittingly bring about the end of the world through the installation of a beta copy of an upcoming computer game. Homestuck features a complex story and a large cast of characters, starring the four children John Egbert, Rose Lalonde, Dave Strider, and Jade Harley. Hussie invented an alien species, called trolls, that have a unique culture. Homestuck characters are particularly popular at anime conventions to cosplay.[1]




The first few acts of Homestuck centers around four 13-year-old children. Early pages of Homestuck were experiments in "fan-sourced storytelling", where Hussie allowed readers of Homestuck to name its characters and make story suggestions. The main characters of Homestuck were all named by fans.[3] The four main characters are presented as internet friends who have technically never met one another, but interact through an online chat application.[4][5]


First shown on-screen during Homestuck's third act, Shaenon Garrity described Jade as "the most recalcitrant" of the four kids.[10] Jade Harley lives on a remote island together with her dog, who has "infinite dimensional powers". As she can see the future through her dreams, Jade was the one who encouraged the other three kids to play the fictional video game SBURB and therefore set the plot in motion.[6]


The ABC Family teen drama Pretty Little Liars is based on the series of young adult novels by Sara Shepard. The series follows the lives of four girls — Spencer, Hanna, Aria, and Emily — whose clique part after the disappearance of their leader, Alison. Later they begin receiving various messages from someone using the name "A" who threatens to expose their secrets — including long-hidden ones they thought only Alison knew.[1] The list only contains characters that appeared in five or more episodes.

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is an upcoming live-action adaptation of E.T.A. Hoffmann's The Nutcracker and the Mouse King about a young girl who finds a Nutcracker doll among the family's gifts and is charged by her parents to take special care of it.

Four in the Morning is a Canadian television comedy-drama series, which premiered on CBC Television on August 26, 2016.[1] Starring Lola Tash, Michelle Mylett, Daniel Maslany and Mazin Elsadig, the series focuses on four friends in their 20s who regularly get together at 4 a.m.[2]


1. "Africa"[edit]

Rise of the Continents is a British documentary television series that premiered on BBC Two on 9 Jun 2013. The four-part series is presented by geologist Iain Stewart. The series hypothesizes how 250 million years in the future, all of the continents will collide together once more, forming a new Pangea, with Eurasia right at its heart.


Using clues like Africa's spectacular landmarks, mineral wealth and wildlife, Iain Stewart shows how the continent of Africa was formed from the wreckage of a long lost supercontinent. It features, among other things, creation of Victoria Falls, diamond mines of Sierra Leone, skeletons of early whales buried in the sand, and the nutrient-rich grass of the Serengeti Plains.


2. "Australia"[edit]

This episode shows how Australia's journey as a continent has affected everything from Aboriginal history to modern day mining, and also the evolution of Australia's unique wildlife. Iain visits an opal mining town called Coober Pedy to recreate the breakup of Gondwana, and to also show how Australia's formation led to the creation of a vast underground aquifer. The episode also features cliffs of the Australian Bight which are a reminder to the times when Australia was once joined to Antarctica.


3. "The Americas"[edit]

200 million years ago North and South America were carved from Pangaea, and pushed westwards as separate island continents. The episode explains how subduction has created the longest continual mountain range in the world - the Andes, and how 300 million years ago New York was at the heart of a huge mountain range.[1] Using llama as an example, Iain explains how most of South America's wildlife originated in North America, and only came south when the two island continents of North and South America joined three million years ago.


4. "Eurasia"[edit]

To reveal Eurasia's origins, Prof Iain Stewart climbs up to the "eternal flames" of Mount Chimaera and explains that where the South of Eurasia is today, there was once a ninety-million-square-kilometre Ocean known as the Tethys. Destruction of the Tethys Ocean led to Eurasia's formation. The freshwater fish called Karimeen, from the backwaters of Kerala in Southern India is a clue that India was once four thousand kilometres south of its current position on the other side of the Tethys, joined to Madagascar.


The film begins and ends with excerpts from a speech by Jiddu Krishnamurti. The remainder of the film is narrated by Peter Joseph and divided into four parts, which are prefaced by on-screen quotations from Krishnamurti, John Adams, Bernard Lietaer, and Thomas Paine, respectively.


Zeitgeist: Moving Forward is the third installment in Peter Joseph's Zeitgeist film series. The film premiered at the JACC Theater in Los Angeles on January 15, 2011 at the Artivist Film Festival,[20] was released in theaters and online. As of November 2014, the film has over 23 million views on YouTube.[21] The film is arranged into four parts. Each part contains interviews, narration and animated sequences.[22]



Like many other real-time strategy games, Age of Mythology is based on defeating enemy units and towns, building your own units and towns, training villagers and fighters. In this way, players are able to defeat and conquer rival towns and civilizations. Players advance their tribe through four "Ages": starting in the Archaic Age, the player may upgrade to the Classical Age, the Heroic Age, and finally, the Mythic Age. Each upgrade to a higher Age unlocks new units and technologies for the player, which strengthens their settlement. However, upgrading requires a sum of resources to be paid and a certain prerequisite building to be constructed.[7]


There are three playable civilizations in Age of Mythology: the Greeks, Egyptians, and Norse. Each civilization has three "major gods"—deities such as Zeus or Odin. The player chooses their major god before the game begins. Every time a player advances to the next age, a "minor god" is selected. Minor gods are slightly less significant historically than their major counterparts. Some minor gods include Bast and Aphrodite.[8] All gods grant the player unique technologies, myth units, and a unique "god power"—A one-time special ability that can either damage an opponent, or benefit the player that uses it.[9]


There are four major resources in Age of Mythology: food, wood, gold, and favor; unlike previous games by Ensemble Studios, this game does not include the stone resource. Resources can be used to train units, construct buildings, and research technologies, among other things. Civilian units—namely, the Greek villagers, Norse gatherers and dwarfs, the Egyptian laborers, and fishing boats—are used to gather resources. Hunting animals, gathering berries, harvesting livestock, farming, and fishing are all methods by which food can be gathered. Wood is gathered only by chopping down trees, and gold is gathered from either gold mines or from trade. Each civilization can purchase upgrades that increase the rate of gathering these resources. Favor is acquired in different ways by different civilizations: Greek players gain it by having villagers pray at temples; Egyptian players earn it by building monuments; and Norse players receive it by fighting/hunting animals or by possessing heroes.[10] Resources can be exchanged at a player's market, with the exception of favor.


On 8 July 1497 Vasco da Gama led a fleet of four ships with a crew of 170 men from Lisbon. The distance traveled in the journey around Africa to India and back was greater than around the equator.[11][12] The navigators included Portugal's most experienced, Pero de Alenquer, Pedro Escobar, João de Coimbra, and Afonso Gonçalves. It is not known for certain how many people were in each ship's crew but approximately 55 returned, and two ships were lost. Two of the vessels were as naus or newly built for the voyage, possibly a caravel and a supply boat.[11]


The four ships were:


São Gabriel, commanded by Vasco da Gama; a carrack of 178 tons, length 27 m, width 8.5 m, draft 2.3 m, sails of 372 m²

São Rafael, commanded by his brother Paulo da Gama; similar dimensions to the São Gabriel

The caravel Berrio, slightly smaller than the former two (later renamed São Miguel), commanded by Nicolau Coelho

A storage ship of unknown name, commanded by Gonçalo Nunes, later lost near the Bay of São Brás, along the east coast of Africa[5]


Goal Dreams is about personal and national identity as seen through a football team like no other. With players of multiple nationalities, speaking different languages and without a home field, the Palestine national football team and its players must overcome obstacles of a physical, emotional, cultural and geographic nature just to exist. The film chronicles the lives of four Palestinian players hailing from different parts of the world during the team's preparation for their most important World Cup 2006 qualification match.


Otherwise known as the "split-screen level" or a "kill screen", the Map 256 Glitch is, when you make it to map 256, the right side of the screen turns into a jumbled mess of numbers and letters and the left side is normal. It is impossible to beat. In Ms. Pac-Man, the screen goes blank with nothing except Ms. Pac-Man and the ghosts appearing. This also happens in Jr. Pac-Man, except there are bits of the sprites of the houses and balloon in the cut-scenes. It also occurs in the Pac-Man Google Doodle as an Easter Egg. There is even a game based on this glitch.


Why It Occurs

The level counter in the original Pac-Man is stored as an 8-bit integer, meaning the highest value it can hold is 255. However, a bug in the game's programming causes the level counter to "roll-over" to 256, resulting in an integer overflow and causing the game to attempt to draw 256 fruit to the screen. The result is the garbled mess on the right side of the maze.



The game checks for 244 Pac-Dots eaten by Pac-Man for the level to end. The right half of the screen contains only 9 dots. 122 on the left half plus the mere 9 on the right half is 131, not nearly enough to progress. (The nine dots can be consumed again on each life, but you can't get enough lives to make it to 244.) This also explains why Ms. Pac-Man's kill screen doesn't automatically progress to the next level despite the lack of dots.


Some minor changes were implemented throughout the early and middle part of 2013; not only in the way that things are presented, but also with modified graphics and minor updates to the set. That year, a new, larger anchor desk was introduced with space to seat all four main anchors (Guthrie, Lauer, Morales and Roker). The new desk brought an end to the "news desk," as the third "news reader" (Morales) now sits at the main anchor desk. Other minor changes included a new larger desk for the third hour. After the August 16, 2013, broadcast, the program vacated Studio 1A, while the space underwent a remodeling with a more modern look with (as stated by executive producer Don Nash) "a lot more bells and whistles to play with".




Episode 21: The Unknown Known


The judges evaluate Hisako's mutton curry soup unenthusiastically at first, their senses having been overwhelmed by Nao's strong dish. With a single sip however, they regain their vigor. Hisako had used the essence of four medicinal plants, which are also spices used in curry, to leverage her specialty of medicinal cuisine. After eating Hisako's curry, the judges deemed Nao's dish as crude and offensive.


Nicholas D. Wolfwood (Japanese: ニコラス・D・ウルフウッド Hepburn: Nikorasu Dī Urufūddo?), also known as Nicholas the Punisher, is a major character in both the Trigun anime, and the Trigun manga created by Yasuhiro Nightow. He is a priest who wields a large cross-shaped gun named the Punisher, which he and his former colleagues use either in saving people or for complete destruction.


The Punisher is a large cross-shaped gun wielded by the best members of the Eye of Michael, most commonly seen is Nicholas D. Wolfwood. There are supposedly only ten in existence and Wolfwood's Punisher is the tenth one in creation. His Punisher has two machine guns in front and a rocket launcher in the back. In the anime, the side arms of the cross open up to reveal a storage bin for pistols. After Wolfwood dies, Vash inherits the weapon, and uses it in his battle with Knives. Nightow commented on the Punisher being around a "hunded-and-so" kilograms and Wolfwood having an "incredible sense of balance".[3] It has been noted by many characters that the Punisher is a very heavy weapon. Wolfwood commented on this with "That's because it's full of mercy".


Many other Punishers appeared in the series and other of Nightow's work. The Chapel Gun, used by Mr. C against his fight with Wolfwood in the manga, is a large cross-shaped machine gun with four spiked ends at the base of the cross. Wolfwood's friend Livio wields the Double Fangs, two cross-shaped submachine guns with dual barrels that make them capable of firing forward and backward at once; these guns are typically strapped to his wrists and, later, carried in low-slung shoulder holsters when not in use. Livio's alternate personality, Razlo the Tri-Punisher of Death, wielded, as his name suggests, three punishers. When he was in his Livio state, they were carried by his three henchmen, Agile, Zain, and a third, unnamed henchman. The Punisher's cross design bears a resemblance to the Centerhead weapon from Gungrave: Overdose, another Nightow work. The Centerhead was wielded by Fangoram (a henchman working for the game's antagonist) and was used in the same way as Wolfwood's.


The "Thieves In The Sewers" quest is designed to get a small amount of money in order to gain access to bigger dungeons. It contains 4 Sewer Thieves circling a table and no chests. The dungeon is very small and cross shaped.



It is designed as a grinding quests and as a way to get money easily.


A cleared Sewer


The man's voice slowly fades in the background as the camera zooms out to show that the cross has been driven upside down. As the unseen person concludes that the hour of god's judgement has arrived, the flames are snuffed out and the night vision filter is applied, leaving place to a number of glowing eyes, with Outlast II's logo overlaying across the screen.

The story centers around four young men who are assigned to Nanba, the world's most formidable prison. Jyugo, who attempted to break out of prison and ended up extending his jail time; Uno, who likes gambling and women; Rock, who likes eating and fighting; and Nico the ex drug addict who likes anime. The action follows the daily lives of the prison’s inmates and guards.

The supervisor of Nanba prison Building 13. A Japanese bald strong serious man who takes his job very seriously and has a cross shaped scar on the left side of his face. He likes shogi and has a black belt in judo. He is annoyed by the antics of the cell 13 inmates and often intercepts them before they escape the prison. He is said to be the strongest of all supervisors in the prison. He is willing to do anything his job dictates, even kill if need be. He is very suspicious of Jyugo, not just because of his father.


The Dead Body Cleanup Cell is a cross-shaped room where most characters encountered will appear when killed. Most entities in the room do not have anything equipped.



The cell consists of two identical hallways crossed over one another made of cobblestone, and is lit with bright purple and green lighting from an unseen source. At the end of each hallway is a door frame without a door, opening up into the empty black skybox surrounding it. If the Dragonborn falls through one of them, they simply fall back in the center of the room.

Detroit Rock City is a 1999 American comedy film directed by Adam Rifkin and written by Carl V. Dupré. It tells of four teenage boys in a Kiss cover band who try to see their idols in concert in Detroit in 1978. Comparable to Rock 'n' Roll High School, Dazed and Confused, The Stöned Age, and I Wanna Hold Your Hand, it tells a coming-of-age story through a filter of 1970s music and culture in the United States. It ultimately took its title from the Kiss song of the same name.


Meanwhile, four rebellious teenage boys in a Kiss cover band named "Mystery" practice the Kiss song "Rock and Roll All Nite" in one of their members' homes. The band, consisting of guitarist-vocalist Hawk (Edward Furlong), bassist-vocalist Lex (Giuseppe Andrews), lead guitarist-vocalist Trip (James DeBello), and drummer-vocalist Jeremiah "Jam" Bruce (Sam Huntington), become elated to have tickets to see their idols in concert in Detroit the following night. Later, the same woman from the beginning races up to the house where the boys are hanging out and drags Jam home. She is revealed to be his mother, Mrs. Bruce. Later discovering the tickets, she burns them and has Jam transferred to a Catholic boarding school.

Turtle, Vinnie, E, and Drama – Entourage


If you thought Entourage was just about Vincent Chase and his three bros banging their way through Hollywood, then you’ve missed the core of what the show is all about. Beyond the excess, wild parties, and sexy times, the four guys are first and foremost best friends. They’re the dude equivalent of the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. This unwavering friendship where they always have each other’s back sometimes proves problematic for them in forming lasting relationships, but who cares when you’re famous, right?! While Entourage wasn’t the most profound show on TV, nor did it portray its lead characters as exactly the sharpest tools in the shed, their puppy-dog loyalty was always heartwarming *cough* I mean, super manly.

Bill, Hank, Dale, and Boomhauer – King of the Hill


King of the Hill‘s foursome may be men of few words, but they’re also men of action. Especially if you consider standing around and drinking beer “action.” But even though King of the Hill features plenty of other interesting characters, the show’s core foursome remains the best. With Hank as the level-headed, responsible leader, Dale as the delusional “local color,” Bill as the definition of “sad sack,” and Boomhauer as the paragon of suave unintelligibility, Arlen’s alley crew comprises one of the best foursomes ever seen on TV. Yup.

Sagat, Vega, Balrog, and M. Bison – Street Fighter II

The four bosses in Street Fighter II

Only gamers of a certain age will remember this, but, once upon a time, the Street Fighter series only had eight playable characters. Sure, 12 characters could duke it out on your TV screen, but four found themselves stuck in the role of unplayable bosses: Sagat, Vega, Balrog, and M. Bison. With Super Street Fighter II, they would enter the normal roster, but until then, you’d have to fight your way through the regular World Warriors to even see them. And while the standard street fights could test your limits, the strange, powerful fighting style of this final four made them all the more memorable.

As an alternative to "tetralogy", "quartet" is sometimes used, particularly for series of four books. The term "quadrilogy", basing the prefix on Latin prefix quadri- instead of the Greek prefix, and first recorded in 1865,[6] has also been used for marketing series of movies, such as the Alien series.

Henriad is a common title used by scholars for Shakespeare's second historical tetralogy, comprising Richard II; Henry IV, Part 1; Henry IV, Part 2; and Henry V.[1][2] The plays depict the destabilising effects of the violation of political continuity with the overthrow of Richard II of England followed by the growth of Henry V of England from a wild youth to a great war leader in Henry V. Although it was the second tetralogy to be written and performed, the subject matter comes chronologically before the first tetralogy comprising the three Henry VI plays and Richard III. The term "Henriad" derives from the Classical epics the Iliad and Aeneid.


References to these four plays as the Henriad can be found widely in literature on them.[3][4][5][6] The scope of the term Henriad, however, is up for debate; that is, some scholars include Shakespeare's first tetralogy, comprising plays Henry VI, Part 1; Henry VI, Part 2; Henry VI, Part 3; and Richard III in the Henriad. Though The Merry Wives of Windsor is set in the same period of history and includes many of the Henriad characters, it does not include Henry himself, and is typically seen as a separate work.[7] The first four are sometimes called the minor tetralogy, and the second the major tetralogy.


I Know What You Did Last Summer is a 1997 American slasher film written by Kevin Williamson and directed by Jim Gillespie. The film is loosely based on the 1973 novel of the same name by Lois Duncan. The film also draws inspiration from the urban legend known as The Hook.


The film stars Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe and Freddie Prinze, Jr., with Anne Heche, Bridgette Wilson, and Johnny Galecki appearing in supporting roles. I Know What You Did Last Summer centers on four friends who are being stalked by a killer, one year after covering up a car accident in which they were involved. The film was directed by Jim Gillespie, from a screenplay written by Kevin Williamson, writer of Scream.


Julie researches David Egan's death. A year before the accident, he and his girlfriend Susie were involved in a car crash near the scene of the foursome's accident. David survived but Susie died. The research mentions Susie's father, Ben Willis. Julie deduces they ran over Ben, who had just killed David. While driving home, Helen and the officer are stopped by a stalled truck. The officer is killed by a dark figure with a hook. Helen rushes to her family's store, where her sister Elsa lets her in. The killer enters through a side door and kills Elsa. Helen finds Elsa's body and attempts to flee. The killer drags Helen away and slashes her to death, her screams being drowned out by the noise of the parade.
