"Plinkett into Darkness or isn't it about time they end this show?" is the fifth episode of the second season of the 789 Films animated web series, Mr. Plinkett: The Animated Series, and 11th episode of the series overall. It aired June 12, 2013 on Blip. The episode was animated and edited by Shaun McKinnon, combining preexisting voice-work by Mike Stoklasa and RedLetterMedia productions to create a unified story.
In the episode "Plinkett into Darkness," Mr. Plinkett wakes up to go on a fishing trip. At the lake, he reminisces about his meeting with Sir Paul McCartney and has surreal encounters with the Star Trek: The Original Series crew, Spock, Captain Kirk, and Dr. McCoy. As the absurdity reaches its zenith, Mr. Plinkett wakes up again.
Afterwards, VCR repairmen Mike and Jay from Half in the Bag critique the episode.
