Of the many obstacles facing the film industry these days (unruly teens, streaming services, MoviePass, MoviePass customer service, bad dudes, good TVs, the nation's general malaise, etc.), overeager trailers are among the most significant.

"Tide Pods Nothin' To Me" | Rimcast with Rim and AB

(We used a photo of speedskating legend Bonnie Blair because let's face it, a picture of Tide Pods wouldn't exactly stand out in your social feeds this week.) I hope this podcast finds you well. It's been more than a month since we got together to make jokes about dumb and serious things happening in the world. In the intervening time, AB's daughter has grown into a full-fledged cognitive genius, teens everywhere are poisoning themselves by eating packets of laundry detergent, and the Balls have become the first family of Lithuania.

"Kisses Used To Mean Something Around Here!" | Rosecast 'Bachelor' S22 E3 Recap

It was a tough week for Arie guys such as ourselves. Our fearless lead just kind of floated through the episode, showing little interest in the group date activities and spending more than half of his alone time with his lips locked with the nearest warm body. Not even comedy legend Fred Willard could save one of the two disastrous group dates, which were not nearly as fun as Chris promised. Plus: Lauren's trainwreck of a one-on-one and the newest Annaliese phobia.

"Shout Out Cardi B" | Rosecast S22 E2 Recap

Between Becca's jaw-dropping sugar daddy date and Krystal's private jet visit to Arie's hometown, it felt like ABC accidentally aired Week 8 instead of Week 2. Plus: Are we willing to make light of an alleged childhood bumper car trauma? And should ABC blur out some of the more intense makeout sessions?

There's no good way to put together a two-hour clip show of yourself yammering into a microphone without seeming vain. But we did it anyway. These are some segments that made us laugh this year, from the sad arc of Rim's 10K challenge to AB's best parenting moments to our aggressive treatment of Stat Boy and much more.

"Game Over" | Rosecast 'Bachelorette' S8 E8 Recap (Hometowns)

The "hometowns" episodes of this franchise are traditionally some of the most exciting and revealing episodes of each season. This was not the case for Emily's final four. But! We'll still get some jokes off, and give credit where credit is due: Jef's heartfelt letter put him firmly in the lead of this competition.

"Yeah, Not Gonna Apologize" | Rosecast 'Bachelorette' S8 E5 Recap

Our biggest takeaways from this episode are 1) we need to get to London and 2) maybe don't besmirch the name of your potential future stepdaughter? Helicopter Kalon dug deep in the mud of the latter, and in the process got himself tossed off the show like a basketball coach who gets two quick technical fouls on purpose so he can make a dinner reservation. Also of note: Arie and Emily make out again.

Mr. "I Have Kids Okay!?" himself Doug manages to secure a one-on-one date rose from Emily, while the A-team trips over themselves scrambling for her attention on a nautical group date.
