Homeland as an 8-bit video game

College Humor gets all paranoid with its latest RPG parody

I'm a huge fan of the College Humor videos that take popular TV shows and turn them into old-school Nintendo 8-bit role-playing-games. Previous videos have parodied Game of Thrones, Lost, The Wire, Doctor Who and Breaking Bad.


Their latest video gives the RPG treatment to Showtime's Homeland series. I have to admit, I haven't seen the show yet (I don't pay for Showtime and it's not streaming on Netflix yet), so some of these jokes go past me. But if you're a fan of the show and RPGs, you'll love this:
