Having grown up on SNES RPGs like Secret of Mana, Chrono Trigger, and even Mario RPG, there’s a deep appreciation in all of us for all things 16-bit. And now in 2012, most of us are in love with the quirky antics of the mysterious Doctor Who. So College Humor asks, “Hey, why not mash the two together?” And that’s exactly what they’ve done.
BE WARNED! There are definitely some spoilers in here if you haven’t gotten caught up on season 6, so watch at your own risk. If you don’t know who River Song is, or the purpose of a Pandorica, I highly suggest you get your ass in gear and get caught up. But if you’re up to date with all your wibbley wobbley timey wimey knowledge, enjoy this crazy awesome blast from the past, and future. TIME TRAVEL!
There’s a poignant moment in there when the user selects “Assume the writers know what they’re doing” which basically is a commentary on the entire Doctor Who series. You always question what the hell is happening as a viewer, but you have to trust that eventually you’ll find out, even if it’s seasons later. Brilliant.
Unfortunately, this will make you more eager for the next season of the show to start, and even then it’s going to be a while and it will be a short season. For now though, just get on Netflix and rewatch all the old stuff to hold you over. It’s definitely worth it.
