Mike and Jay perform an act of charity[2] and reward themselves by seeing Looper and Dredd.


Mr. Plinkett has been robbed. Learning of Mr. Plinkett's plight in the news and feeling somewhat responsible, Mike and Jay ease their guilt by giving him a working TV and VCR. They celebrate their act of charity by seeing Looper and Dredd.

Strangely, Mr. Plinkett calls the duo to repair his newly acquired VCR. Mike and Jay soon realize that Plinkett has forgotten the events of the past year because of his dementia. They use this opportunity to resume the VCR scam.

Summary and ReviewEdit


Looper is a new film which may or may not be based on something neither of us have ever seen or heard of ever, like a graphic novel ... or a video game ... or a book ... or some other crap. The movie stars Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordan-Levitt in a mind-bending time-travel adventure story about people shooting other people from other times.
—Jay Bauman


Dredd 3D is the new film version of the famed comic book character, Judge Dredd, who was last portrayed by Sylvester Stallone in the 1995 film. In this newer and bleaker version, Karl Urban stars alongside a sexy psychic while they battle futuristic drug lords in a futuristic housing project using futuristic weapons.

The episode was filmed on October 1, 2012.[3] Jay Bauman makes reference to the controversial 2012 Packers-Seahawks game on September 24, 2012 during the 2012 NFL referee lockout. The Red Letter Media twitter tweeted support for the Green Bay Packers.[4] The episode aired October 6, 2012 on Blip,[2] and October 9, 2012 on YouTube.
