In this episode, business is slow at the Lightning Fast! VCR Repair Shop, so Mike, Jay, and their friend Rich marathon and review all the movies in the Resident Evil film series.

Meanwhile, Mr. Plinkett returns from gambling at the Indian casino to find that his house has been robbed.

Summary and ReviewEdit

Resident Evil 1-4Edit

In preparation for seeing the latest Resident Evil movie, we recently locked ourselves in a tiny room and did a marathon straight through of all four of the original movies.
—Jay Bauman

Resident Evil: RetributionEdit

So with all these movies under our belt, we decided to see the fifth movie, Resident Evil: Retribution. Something happens and there is retribution.
—Jay Bauman

"Red Letter Media Watches the Ending of Resident Evil: Afterlife"

URL: linkShow: Half in the BagReleased: September 21, 2012
Season 3, Episode 38 (1) / ExtrasTime: 3:20
Edited by: Jay BaumanMusic by: Daniel Palkowski
Cast: Mike Stoklasa, Jay Bauman
Guests: Rich Evans



Mike, Jay, and Rich watch the end of Resident Evil: Afterlife.

Just a note here: None of this was faked or even acted or enhanced. Rich Evans cannot fake his laughter. Sometimes it happens. Sometimes it doesn't. I can also not fake this. By the end I couldn't breathe I was laughing so hard. A lot was because of Rich laughing. Also, no drugs were involved other than a few beers. Jay nor I were "wasted" or anything like that. I think a major factor was we watched 4 movies in a row and it was 1am. But, hell, it was still hilarious.
