"The Dark Knight Rises" is the seventeenth episode of the second season of film review web series Half in the Bag, and 36th episode in the series overall. The episode aired July 22, 2012 on Blip.[1][2]

In this episode, now on the run, Mike and Jay stop by Mr. Plinkett's house to use the phone.[2]

PlotEdit

Narrowly surviving another murder attempt, Mike and Jay borrow the phone in Mr. Plinkett's house to warn their fellow VCR repairmen.

There, they discover that although Plinkett has become a man of the modern age and refurnished his house with new technology, Sheila has broken up with him. The repairmen also unscrupulously claim Plinkett and Sheila's free tickets to The Dark Knight Rises.

After the screening, the duo finally arrive at the Lightning Fast VCR Repair Shop, where they hope to find some answers.

Summary and ReviewEdit

The Dark Knight RisesEdit

[O]n this episode of Half in the Bag, we'll be talking about The Dark Knight Rises, which is the third and final film in the very popular series directed by Christopher Nolan. The movie is about Batman and the villainous Bane endlessly punching each other in the face, but it's also about Heath Ledger's dead and is not in the movie.
—Mike Stoklasa
