Preview: Raising Hope Goes Back To The Future With Christopher Lloyd

Raising Hope is going back to the future… kind of. From the photos and promo we have to show you from next month's Raising Hope episode "Credit Where Credit is Due," it looks like the comedy is having a little Back to the Future fun, which comes complete with a DeLorean and an appearance by Doc Brown himself (Christopher Lloyd).

2013 is just two years from when Marty McFly and Doc Brown traveled to the future in Back to the Future II. Based on the promo below, it looks like Christopher Lloyd (DeLorean style!) in 2013 on Raising Hope.

I love the DeLorean door on the house. It's impractical and probably annoying to use but still a pretty excellent nod to BTTF.

From the photos Fox released for the episode, which airs Tuesday, January 8 at 8:00 p.m, the Chance family decides they need a new car.

At some point, this will lead to Virginia and Burt getting to test drive a DeLorean.

Think they'll get it up to 88 miles per hour? Whether or not they can do it remains to be seen, but I'd be really surprised if they didn't try.

Are they thinking about this one as an option? No one seems particularly impressed with what appears to be the back of a hearse, but Virginia seems to be considering it...
