What to Do Feb. 14, As Told by Frank Underwood

house_of_cards2So, what’s happening Feb. 14? If you answered Valentine’s Day, you would be WRONG. The correct answer is: the season two premiere of “House of Cards!” If you’ve been planning that romantic date with someone special, think again. The only thing you should be doing next Friday is taking all those Valentine’s Day treats, snuggling in your bed and getting ready for an epic TV marathon. Still not convinced? Perhaps our friend Frank Underwood can be more persuasive. (And believe me, Frank Underwood can definitely be persuasive.)

If you don’t watch the new season, everyone else will know what happened and you’ll be “in the dark.”

Frank Underwood might also take your failure to watch as a personal betrayal, and that would not be good.

FU2

Valentine’s Day is too predictable anyway; make a bold choice instead.

FU3

Don’t think you can watch a full season in one day? You’ve just got to power through.

Watching 10-plus hours of Netflix in a row is hard; you’ve just got to be a rock. Besides, do you know how many calories the brain burns? Frank Underwood does. Who needs the gym when you have the ability to focus all your brainpower into complicated plot twists, murderous congressmen and ruthless journalists?

That’s right, I’m telling you to blow off your significant other for a night of drama and intrigue, Ben and Jerry’s ice cream and your comfiest pajamas.

Okay, so maybe don’t lie to your significant other. But, even if you do, it will all be worth it. Cancel those reservations, put on your slippers, grab your laptop and get ready for Frank’s scandalous bid for the White House.

The Ultimate Holiday Break Netflix Guide

Screen-Shot-2013-01-14-at-9.08.23-PMThank goodness finals are finally over! Now it is time for food, family and my favorite friend, Netflix. The shows, the options, the never ending episode reel … oh the thrills!

Since the dawn of time (well, actually only for the last few years), Netflix has manipulated the time management of college students worldwide. Now that finals are done and over, however, free time is plentiful. That means there’s no excuse for wearing pajamas all day and plunging into some new TV addictions.

For that reason, 4E has complied our list of the top Netflix shows for the season:

1. Orange is the New Black – If you aren’t catching the hype of this show, I’ll send you to prison, just like the series’ main character, Piper Chapman.

2. Scandal – Nothing like a little mischief to spice up the holiday season. Am I right?

3. Breaking Bad – 4E does not condone making or selling illegal substances. However, we do condone watching shows about doing so.

4. Revenge – Mega-millions, double lives and Hamptons betrayals… Sounds like our plan to get back at Florida Gulf Coast University.

5. White Collar – Is art heist really illegal if it’s committed by someone as good-looking as Neal Caffrey?

6. Arrested Development – We happen to be huge fans of Arrested Development at 4E. In fact, we might even open up a banana stand next semester.

7. House of Cards – This is about the city where we go to school. Besides, Kevin Spacey visited us this year and he was awesome.

8. How I Met Your Mother – There are no words to describe this comedy gold. Just watch the show and you’ll thank us later.

Whether you’re rejoicing in the holiday spirit with family, catching up with old friends or sulking because you’re not on the Hilltop, make sure to take our suggestions and spend some quality time with your good pals Net and Flix.

 

It’s Back…

House of CardsAttention Netflix junkies, Kevin Spacey addicts, political fiends, Georgetown students and all combinations of the aforementioned categories: House of Cards is back … on Feb. 14.

The Netflix political drama will make its anticipated return on none other than Valentine’s Day. (Nothing says “I love you” more than sleazy wheeling and dealing from our favorite majority whip, am I right?)

Though the series is months away, you can still watch this delicious promo video of Robin Wright in the meantime:
