The Show can go on as long as the two self-proclaimed "frauds" can trick Plinkett into paying them for doing nothing. They have gone out of their way so far in protecting themselves from honest work by retrieving the lost VCR, going back in time and murdering people. Along the way they met lots of other people in Plinketts home, have traveled all across Milwaukee and even America, living through tons of wacky adventures. The main focus of the show though are the conversations Mike and Jay have about movies they saw, conventions they've been to and their experiences with all of it.

Trivia

The Plinkett character in Half in The Bag, played by Rich Evans, is a different character entirely to the Plinkett in the Plinkett Reviews, played by Mike Stoklasa. This was clarified in an update video called "Harry's Next Review" where they joked about the continuity. This explains the massive contrast between the two characters. See more »

amazing
21 November 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

this show is the most amazing thing that i have ever seen, the sarcastic humor is hilariously funny and the movie reviews are very accurate and complex and to the point. mike and jay have a lot of skills when it comes to movie making. the skits in between the movie review are amazing and i am looking forward to watching more of these episodes. the movie reviews are very in-depth and it is clear from watching many episodes of the shows that mike and jay are very skilled when it comes to the art of movie making. the sarcastic humor is so funny and and all of these shows can be watched many times again for the humor value. overall this show is amazing and i would recommend this show to anyone who likes satirical humor and movie reviews which goes in-depth into a film. i would also recommend the plinkett reviews which are made by the creators of half in the bag. these reviews are reviews of one movie that go for an hour and half. these reviews are also filled with the same satirical humor that is present in the half and the bag series.
