Depuis que Dan Harmon s’est fait évincer comme un malpropre de sa propre série Community – et avant d’y revenir, comme il pourrait en être question cette année – l’auteur s’est penché pour Adult Swim sur l’adaptation d’une vieille série de courts créés par Justin Roiland, vaguement basés sur la relation entre Marty et Doc des Back to the Future, et que s’appelorio Rick & Morty… Je vous laisse le commentaire de Danger Guerrero, de Warming Glow :
Cartoon Network has placed the full, commercial-free pilot of Dan Harmon new Adult Swim pilot, Rick and Morty, on YouTube. Set to debut sometime next year, the animated series focuses on a genius inventor and his somewhat less-than-genius grandson, […] More importantly, however, the pilot opens with said genius inventor drunkenly flying a spaceship and threatening to blow up the whole town and start over, after he picks up the girl his grandson has a crush on so the two of them can be a new Adam and Eve. That’s how it starts. Like, before the credits. This show officially has my attention.
Cette nouvelle série d’animation débarque ce lundi 2 décembre sur le Adult Swim du Cartoon Network, et le moins que l’on puisse dire, c’est que le pilote est incroyablement prometteur (mais surtout, des barres !)
En voici le synopsis officiel :
After missing for nearly 20 years, Rick Sanchez (Justin Roiland) suddenly arrives at his daughter Beth’s (Sarah Chalke) doorstep looking to move in with her and her family. Beth welcomes him with open arms, but her unremarkable husband Jerry (Chris Parnell) isn’t too thrilled about the tearful reunion as Rick’s arrival serves to shake things up quite a bit around the household. Rick converts the garage into his personal laboratory and gets to work on all sorts of dangerous sci-fi gadgets and contraptions. That wouldn’t be so bad if not for the fact that Rick continues to involve his grandchildren Morty (Roiland) and Summer (Spencer Grammer) in his insane adventures.
Created and executive produced by Dan Harmon (Community, Channel 101) and Justin Roiland (House of Cosbys), this half-hour, animated comedy series is produced by Starburns Industries.
