Storyline

Half in the Bag is a Movie Review Show hosted by two VCR repairmen named Mike Stoklasa and Jay Bauman and broadcasted from the home of one of their customers, Harry S. Plinkett. Stoklasa's and Bauman's plan is to extend their work on Plinkett's broken VCR as long as they can while charging him unreasonable amounts of money, effectively robbing the man. 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. Since they both have a background of making videos and ... Written by Benno Drews

Pure hilarity
2 February 2017 | by adriandunwellSee all my reviews

I started watching Half In The Bag 2 years ago. Watching the channel grow has been a true pleasure since this is by far the most hilariously inappropriate yet also professional blend of comedy gold and satire.

The set-piece of "Lightning fast VHS" is a brilliant addition adding a lot more creativity than your average YouTube channel that deem their reviews to be "hilarity's". We follow Mike and Jay, and Mr.Plinkett, an otherwise unsettling and sinister old man who like to make love to his pets and abuse hookers. Mike and Jay both play the parts of VHS repair men looking to extort money from Mr. Plinkett by attempting to repair his VHS. Those Female Russian Terminator tapes ain't gonna watch themselves you know! I wont go into a lot of details, since you really have to watch this show to enjoy and admire its sheer levels of comedy that make you question "Why is Adam Sandler so rich, when these guys are far more hilarious?!". Speaking of that con-man, I would advise starting with the wet yourself.

One last note also - Rich Evans is a majestic human being. Every street corner should contain at least one Rich Evans. His laughter is like butter to the ears...

Love it! 10/10
