jhudson a écrit :Les parents de David Haller ont connu la 2iéme guerre mondiale, donc si la première saison se passait de nos jours, Haller devrait être bien plus âgé qu'il l'est dans la série, a moins qu'en tant que Mutant le temps n'ai pas de prise sur lui.
Par "événements actuels", j'entendais cela d'un point de vue diégétique, c'est-à-dire les événements se déroulant durant la période principale du récit.
Par ailleurs, la série cultive l'ambiguïté concernant sa temporalité : elle adopte généralement une esthétique très connotée années 60-70, mais des éléments technologiques (ordinateurs...) et scénaristiques (

- Ex. Oliver, poète beatnik, est resté pendant 20 ans sur le plan astral.
) font plutôt penser qu'elle se déroule plusieurs décennies après cette période. Un peu comme les Batman
de Burton qui font très années 40, mais qui prennent place à l'époque contemporaine (encore une fois, à cause de la présence d'éléments tels que les ordinateurs).
Je mets la rubrique de TV Tropes
à ce sujet en spoiler pour une question de place :

TV Tropes a écrit :Ambiguous Time Period: The time period is kept ambiguous, with occasional glimpses of technology that appear current or futuristic contrasting with styles or references to events that suggest a much earlier setting. This keeps the world feeling strangely unbalanced and unreal, much like a person who doubts his sanity might find it.
- Some of the hairstyles and clothing are from the '60s. The Eye wears a 1960s perm and retro green suit. Amy Haller's outfits and hairstyle are straight from the 1960s. Oliver's style is even more overtly from the 1960s, but it's implied that this is because he's been in the Astral Plane for decades.
- Many set designs are influenced by the '70s, though this makes more rational sense for Summerland, which was built decades ago.
- Clark has a futuristic-looking tablet computer when interviewing David in the first episode.
- In "Chapter 1," Lenny mentions CNN, which wasn't a network until 1980.
- Ptonomy has a noticeably retro taste in suits, often wearing flat caps and waistcoats. He couples that with a preference for the Thompson submachine gun, which was used by the US military until 1971, with production ending in 1945.
- Most vehicles are at least fairly modern looking. Melanie's car is a vaguely 90's looking black limo - weirdly, it's also right-hand drive, very unusual for most cars in the United States.
- In "Chapter 4," Oliver Bird, who has been trapped in the Astral Plane for 20 years, asks David if the 'Summer of Love' was still going on, which occurred in 1967.
Oliver Bird is said to have inherited Summerland in the 1940s. Even considering that he hasn't aged for 20 years, if the current year were 2017, he would have had to have inherited it in infancy in 1949 for him to look anywhere near the age of his actor, 43-year-old Jemaine Clement.
- The Clockworks facility has very large flatscreens on the walls, but they play old-timey black and white films.
- Philly has a iMac G4 on her desk in "Chapter 4", which were only made in the early 2000s.
- Ptonomy remembers that Nena's "99 Luftballons" (released in 1983) was playing when his mother died, when he was five years old.
- David plays "The Rainbow Connection" on his guitar at one point, a song which wasn't released until 1979.
- The psychiatric drugs Kerry/Cary are playing a game about in chapter 6 are from a few time periods: Chlorpromazine, 1954, Flupentixol, 1956. Clozapine, 1972, Effexor, 1993. Geodon, 2001, Abilify and Escitalopram, 2002, Duloxetine, 2004, and, finally, Brintellix, 2013.
- Clark has a husband and a black adopted son, neither of which he tries to hide from society, suggesting a fairly late time period or an alternative time line with more tolerance.
- One of the flashbacks has a bunch of security guards blazing away with the Heckler & Koch G36 assault rifle (which started production in 1996).
- Amahl Farouk mentions John Lennon's "Bigger Than Jesus" quote, which came from an interview in August, 1966.
- It's mentioned that Farouk's inert form has been hidden away for several decades. The hearse we see moving it to the temple of the Mi-go monks has tailfins, a style of automobile accessory that peaked between the years 1955 and 1961.
- David's parents were adults during World War 2 and still fairly young at his birth, putting David's birth date somewhere in the 1950s, meaning the show would take place somewhere in the 1980s.
