The Late Movies: Codefellas
YouTube / WIRED
So there's an animated YouTube series satirizing the NSA. Yes, really. It's called Codefellas, and it's written by David Rees, of Get Your War On fame. In classic Rees style it's all about the dialogue, though this time the pictures do move a bit (they're rotoscoped). If you're a fan of NSA satire, or John Hodgman (who plays Agent Topple), or you like shows like Archer -- this is for you.
Nine of the twelve planned episodes have been posted. Here you go!
