(WARNING: MATURE CONTENT) New comedy series from Rooster Teeth coming September 2016 for Rooster Teeth Sponsors. Crunch Time follows a group of grad students who use big science for petty purposes. After recklessly handling cutting-edge tech in their school lab, this brilliant team of jackasses create a small, but potentially world-ending black hole that grabs the attention of government operatives. Since the “wanna-be” scientists can’t pinpoint exactly where their experiment went wrong, they must work with the secret government agency, sent in to save the day, by detailing EVERY illegal thing they’ve done in the lab thus far.
When a gang of brilliant grad students use big science for petty purposes, they accidentally create a black hole that could destroy the world.
Berkman isn’t so much of an asshole as he is a gaping asshole with no redeemable qualities… also, he rocks an incredible mustache and makes a pretty good daiquiri.
Sam is emotionally needy, highly manipulative, and just an overall hero of a man. He keeps the science lab afloat with his large trust fund.
Hannah is a cunning business woman who doesn't let her status as the only girl in a boys club dilute her power. As her ambition expands, her moral center shrinks putting herself and the gang in some sticky situations.
Larry, the lab assistant, a total yes-man with the heart of a child and the temperament of a golden retriever.
A twenty-something Doc Brown, Connor has always got a chip on his shoulder, a quip in his holster, and he’ll be the first to tell you he’s the smartest guy in the room. Always.
To make a quick buck, greedy grad students sell fantasies with their extremely dangerous, untested, lucid dreaming machine. What could go wrong?
The cast and crew of Crunch Time join Matt on-stage for an insightful, and sometimes shirtless, discussion about the hilarious new sci-fi comedy series. The Q&A was recorded on September 8, 2016 at the Aero Theater in Santa Monica, CA.

Check out all the busted takes and alternate lines that didn't make it into the "First" exclusive show "Crunch Time".
In a highly classified location, a gang of brilliant, misfit grad students are interrogated by government operatives. The question: How did it all begin? The answer: With a last ditch effort to win back love… by way of an extremely dangerous, untested, lucid dreaming machine.
Welcome to the Brain Frame - A home-brewed lucid dreaming machine, housed in a university basement lab. Dreams lead to nightmares. Nightmares lead to danger. Danger leads to a puzzling mystery that the government struggles to comprehend.
As government agents learn more about the heightened danger coming from the lab, the gang reveals how the Brain Frame business began. And Hannah’s idea to charge money for lucid dreaming goes awry with their first paying customer.
The agents develop a new lead with a missing persons case that ties directly into the Brain Frame. Meanwhile, with the pressure mounting and Larry still missing, Sam begins to crack.
New revelations of Larry’s location point to signs of a larger conspiracy. With time running out, the government agents threaten enhanced interrogation. Will Sam, Connor, Berkman and Hannah tell the truth about the Party of the Century and how it connects to “the rift?” Mark Moses guest stars as Sam's father, the great Montgomery Wittington.
