1.
A story contained in four parts.

Mostly known from the title of the boxset of Aliens-series films, "Alien Quadrilogy." An awkward mix of Greek and Latin, seen as incorrect by some linguists (despite the common word "television" being a similar combination of Greek and Latin). The Latin-rooted word "tetralogy" means the same thing and avoids the awkwardness.
The first two parts of the Alien Quadrilogy are considered masterpieces, while the last two parts are considered duds.
