"The Hunger Games and Jeff Who Lives at Home" is the seventh episode of the second season of film review web series Half in the Bag, and 28th episode in the series overall. The episode aired March 30, 2012 on Blip.[1][2]

In this episode, Mike and Jay are forced to fix Mr. Plinkett's DVD player and accidentally create a monster.[2]

PlotEdit

Mr. Plinkett is miffed that Mike and Jay caused him to break his new DVD player. He issues an ultimatum to the duo, ordering them to fix his DVD player before he returns from lunch.

Hoping to continue to scam Plinkett, the repairmen jury-rig a solution, merging the DVD player with the VCR into a DVD-VCR hybrid. The unholy hybrid comes to life, brimming with malice, and begins destroying Plinkett's living room. The repairmen and Plinkett are saved when a robot calling itself FUCK-BOT 5000!, attracted by scent of robot sentience, bursts into the living room and destroys the hybrid through forced intercourse.

Summary and ReviewEdit

The Hunger GamesEdit

The Hunger Games tells the story of an oppressive future society that picks a teen boy and girl from each of the country's districts to fight it out in a battle to the death against each other on live television. One teenager, played by Jennifer Lawrence, volunteers herself for the death-match to save her younger sister from having to participate. It's Battle Royale meets The Running Man meets American Idol meets The Truman Show meets THX 1138 meets Gladiator meets Logan's Run meets The Flintstones.
—Jay Bauman

Jeff Who Lives at HomeEdit

Jeff, He Who Lives at Home is the new film from the Duplass Brothers, who recently brought us another film called Cyrus, which starred John C. Reilly and the fat guy from Lost. Jeff, He Who Lives at Home is yet another about people learning things and overcoming problems and whatever. The movie stars Ed Helms as Ed Helms and the guy who was in the recent Muppets movie. Can Jeff not live at home? Can Ed Helms not wear a red shirt? Does Susan Sarandon find love in all the wrong places? Do I give a sh**? NOOOOO–! With a running time of 82 minutes, this movie felt like four f***ing hours long.
—Mike Stoklasa
