Mike and Jay are not really repairmen, but two crazy guys in a mental institution. Plinkett was real, but he was their elderly next-door neighbor who they murdered when they were teens. The guilt cause them to go mad. Look at them, they don't seem sane.

* The "idiotic millennials" line is about various online writers trying to defend the prequels by claiming that they're smarter than they really are. The Darth Jar-Jar theory isn't discussed, presumably because that's primarily a joke that no one is meant to take seriously.

[[WMG: Stoklasa's Plinkett is from an alternate universe]]

Mike is Mikey from {{Recess}} grown up and 'Jay' is Hans Klopek from Film/TheBurbs living under witness protection having turned on his family.

In his Star Wars review, Mr Plinkett joked about how somebody like Jak Dex-Starr(or "This Asshole" as he puts it) would be able to use a lightsabre. In the Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Jedi/([[spoiler:turncoat]]) Pong Krell is both [[{{Jerkass}} this asshole]] and the same species as Jak Dex-Starr. Maybe they thought it would be funny if they answered Mr Plinkett. For all we know, GeorgeLucas himself saw it and wanted to troll Mr Plinkett. [[TrollingCreator We still aren't sure whether he's the only person he's trolled.]]

The trailer of "The Plinkett Awakens" suggests he have disdain towards theories/ideas that the Prequels are smarter than they seem("idiotic millennials think George Lucas is a secret genius"), so he'd probably not buy into this popular idea.

In the trailer for the ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull'' review, the Plinketts are two different people who just happen to be very similar. However in ''Revenge of Nadine'', the Plinkett that reviews movies [[note]] (usually played by Mike Stoklasa) [[/note]] is played by Rich Evans. It is possible that Stoklasa!Plinkett got Evans!Plinkett to pose as him while he left the country to avoid going to jail and/or getting attacked by Nadine by promising to fix his VCR and former home.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: The Plinkett Reviews are written, edited and produced by Mike and Jay from Half in the Bag]]
Lets look at the facts: Half in the bag Mike and Jay are pretty knowledgable on movies and movie-making, they both have dark, ironic senses of humor (Mike especially), Mike in one episode is shown to do his own Plinkett impersonation, and perhaps most importantly, HITB Plinkett is nowhere near as homicidal and violent as shown in the reviews, just senile and quirky

It's possible that Mike and Jay have created their own fictionalized version of Plinkett (Based on the poor old man they've been scamming all this time) with Mike providing the voice, and use him as the mouthpiece of their more controversial movie reviews

Harry did say he was half-pig. Either this is just senility, or [[{{Squick}} he really is half-pig.]] Not to mention that he threw his psychologist out of a window because he tried to talk about his mother, suggesting some serious MommyIssues. Plinkett's mother was rather promiscuous, indulging in some rather questionable acts. Possibly [[SonOfAWhore as her job]]. This gave Plinkett some major issues when it came to sex and women, explaining why he's "a psychopath who butchers women." Depending on [[BrainBleach how squicky you want to get]], [[ParentalIncest he could have learned this from his mother.]]

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG:The Plinkett Reviews take place after Half In the Bag]]
So some where after Half in The Bag, Plinkett murdered Mike and Jay as revenge for not fixing his VCR, and as stated PlinkettReview!Plinkett's traits are similar to Half in The Bag Mike's(due to being the same actor), and Plinkett got possessed once, so apparently he got possessed by Mike and Jay

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG:Plinkett is the real person and Mike is a decoy so people don't think that Plinkett is an actual person.]]


[[WMG: Half in the Bag is Stoklasa!Plinkett's StartOfDarkness]]

[[WMG: Half in the Bag WebVideo/HalfInTheBag is Stoklasa!Plinkett's StartOfDarkness]]


After episode 44, Red Letter Media began to host a new segment titled "Best of the Worst", which appears to be largely driven by Jay. In episode 45, we see Jay make Mike burst out laughing for perhaps the first time EVER. While episode 45 was released after the first episode of Best of the Worst, it's POSSIBLE it was filmed first, and thus Best of the Worst was born.
