In this BoardGameGeek topic several months back, someone found Hero Quest on US TV. It's a comedy called the Goldbergs.

Good finds...

Deadpool clearly referring to FF and D&D but the art of those minis is unmistakably HQ! Not sure what's going on with the board.

I've watched quite a lot of Goldbergs, but never seen this episode. The Deadpool is also pretty cool. Great finds!

Deadpool playing Hero Quest is hilarious to me for some reason. That's just awesome. Imagine if they somehow worked that into the movies. lol
