"Battleship and Dark Shadows" is the eleventh episode of the second season of film review web series Half in the Bag, and 32nd episode in the series overall. The episode aired May 25, 2012 on Blip.[1][2]

In this episode, as Mike and Jay walk to the VCR Repair Shop, Jay suspects Mr. Plinkett is tracking them.[2]

PlotEdit

As the repairmen journey toward the VCR Repair Shop, Jay grows paranoid about being followed. After hiding in an abandoned warehouse to avoid a tail, he suggests that they should wear tinfoil helmets to block the homing devices that Mr. Plinkett implanted in the duo's brains. The helmet instead intercepts an DLP signal and downloads two movies directly into Jay's brain. Mike tries to download a porno, but ends up with the same movies.

Meanwhile, Mr. Plinkett tries to use a tinfoil helmet to download a marathon of Kenneth Burns documentaries on PBS. His helmet is zapped by a stray gamma burst, which drastically reduces his intelligence.

Summary and ReviewEdit

BattleshipEdit

Battleship is the new, last big-budget movie that Taylor Kitsch will ever be starring in. It tells the story of the brave men and Rihanna who serve aboard the naval destroyer John Paul Jones and how they battle aliens that love to splash around in the water.
—Mike Stoklasa

Dark ShadowsEdit

Dark Shadows is the latest product from Tim Burton and Johnny Depp. Loosely based on some goddamn soap opera from the 1960s, Dark Shadows is about man who is cursed by a witch and turned into a vampire. After being buried alive for 200 years, he's unearthed in the 1970s to help his descendants revive their fishing company.
—Jay Bauman
