See Homeland’s ‘Fight in the Woods’ Scene Reedited As the Comedy It Should’ve Been

The scene in which Nick Brody fights the bomb maker while simultaneously talking to his wife on the phone in last Sunday’s Homeland was so over the top that it baffled many fans and critics. But perhaps this was the usually stoic show’s attempt at humor. Who says an award-winning drama about terrorism can’t have farcical elements? Why can’t Homeland be Homelandia for a few minutes? We sitcom-ized the scene a bit because ... maybe it was meant to be funny? (Of course, you should only watch if you've already caught up with Sunday's episode.)
