The lights are on
A new trailer shows off the upcoming comedy, which focuses on the researchers at Aperture Science.
While dreams of a big-budget, live-action Portal movie may still be as mythical as the franchise’s cake, today brings word of a different project that might be of interest to Portal enthusiasts.
The fan-made series Aperture R&D looks to follow a group of scientists in the wildly irresponsible and unethical research department of Aperture. The new web series will air through Machinima beginning on Friday, March 15.

It's either gonna be really dumb or really brilliant, and I'm hoping for the latter. We gotta have Glados for at least a cameo in this. Cave Johnson wouldn't be bad either. This looks like a interesting watch regardless, though. Go Aperture!
I can't judge it, cus I've yet to see it, but it looks like it's going to be too goofy. The beauty of both Portal games was that they were able to find hilarity amidst a very eerie, and sinister atmosphere. I feel like they should've gone for more of a grounded, documentary style approach, and let the comedy unfold organically. I'll still give it a go, though.
