From “You got it dude” to “Bazinga!” it’s almost like TV shows have their own special language that viewers need to understand to be in on the joke. Of course that’s part of the reason we watch in the first place. Check out this supercut of some of TV’s finest catchphrases and see how many you remember! [Laughing Squid]
There should be some sort of adult lady merit badge for sitting through four hours of “The Bachelorette” in 48 hours. I’m just saying. Let’s review last night’s episode, which featured the most emotionally manipulative date I’ve ever witnessed on this stupid show that I just can’t quit, not to mention an unexpected departure.

There’s a reason people will still pay an arm and a leg to see the ballet in the age of Netflix and the internet – it’s totally mind blowing. The Washington Post enlisted six performers from the Washington Ballet to show us their most difficult dance moves, and then played them back in slow motion. See the whole series here, and prepare to be amazed. Sometimes, in this busy world of deadlines and megapixels and pop stars, it’s kind of cool to just take a moment to appreciate just how much the human body can do. [This Is Colossal, Washington Post]
