Two Dog Owners Claim Their Pets Died Following Grooming Appointments at New Jersey PetSmart

Danielle Dinapoli of Lambertville, New Jersey, started off 2018 in despair.

According to Patch.com, Dinapoli claims that her beloved dog Scruffles died during a grooming appointment at a PetSmart store in Flemington. Dinapoli had used the store before for grooming sessions, so she wasn’t concerned when she dropped off her 8-year-old bulldog on Dec. 29 at 9:45 in the morning.

Around 10:30 am, Scruffles’ owner received a phone call from the store letting her know that the dog had been taken to a local veterinary hospital due to a medical emergency. Dinapoli told Patch.com that even though she raced to the vet,

Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return Brings Back the Laughs

  • Cinelinx
We’ve Got Movie Sign again! It’s been 18years since the last time the mad scientists forced the bots and their human companion to watch cheesy movies. Mystery Science Theater 3000, a low-budget but hilarious cable comedy show from the 80s-90s, has been resurrected on Netflix, with a new cast but the same satiric spirit. Does Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return live up to its predecessor?

In the not-too-distant past (1988-1999), Mystery Science Theater 3000 was a cult hit, first on Comedy Central and then on the SyFy Network. Created by comedian Joel Hodgson, it ran for over 10 years, despite numerous cast changes, and a netwrok change, along the way. MST3K gained a legion of devoted fans, (myself included) all of whom were sad to see the show go off the air in 1999. Almost two decades later, Hodgson has brought his comedic gem back, with all-new episodes.

Star Trek Continues: Continuing To Be Excellent

  • Cinelinx
“Embracing the Winds”, the seventh episode of the excellent fan-made webseries Star Trek Continues debuted recently and it continues the outstanding quality of the previous six episodes. With equal parts fan service, entertaining writing, good performances and nostalgia, "Embracing the Winds" delivers what fans of classic Star Trek want from their Trek.

Note to Jj Abrams…Watch this show! These guys get it. You don’t. This is what fans of Star Trek: The Original Series (1966-1969) expect when they see the name Star Trek. The fan-made, crowd funded Star Trek Continues is such a superb extension of the old show, it makes you wonder why Paramount doesn’t hire these folks to write the new films. They’re much better at it than whoever is writing those movies now.

Before we go further into “Embracing the Winds”, it should be pointed out that this episode was filmed before the

Mindy Newell Is Trekkin’

  • Comicmix
Have you heard Star Trek Continues? I happened to discover it just today, as I was surfing the web this morning. It is an award-winning …well, let me quote from the site itself:

Star Trek Continues is a critically-acclaimed, award-winning, fan-produced webseries… the brainchild of long-time Star Trek: The Original Series fan – and producer, director, actor, voice-actor, musician – Vic Mignogna.

Star Trek Continues is proud to be part of Trek history, aimed at completing

the final two years of the original five-year mission. After mounting a successful Kickstarter campaign, the show is already making waves and attracting guest stars such as Michael Forest, Jamie Bamber, Lou Ferrigno, and Erin Gray – as well as cameos by Star Trek alums like Marina Sirtis and Michael Dorn.”

It really is absolutely captivating. Mr. Mignogna is perfect – and I mean perfect! – William Shatner as Captain James Tiberius Kirk, down to body movements and personal tics.

Revisiting Buck Rogers In The 25th Century

Andrew time travels 35 years back to revisit the theatrical release of the Buck Rogers In The 25th Century film...

Once synonymous with science fiction, the phrase ‘That Buck Rogers Stuff’ once called to mind everything the average person thought about Science Fiction - ray guns, rocket ships and robots. Certainly in the 1928, when the then-christened Anthony Rogers made his debut, he was something pretty unique in Sci-Fi - the space adventurer as swash-buckler. Given the nickname ‘Buck’ by John F. Dille, the novel, Armageddon, was adapted into the comic strips in 1929 and then in 1932, Buck Rogers became the first major Science Fiction radio drama. 1939 saw Larry ‘Buster’ Crabbe take on the role for a 12-part serial. All of this is to say that Buck Rogers was around for quite a while before many people of my generation discovered him.

Buck Rogers In The 25th Century arrived on UK shores via the medium of cinema.

'Buck Rogers' Star Erin Gray: How I Turned Comic-Con (and Other Conventions) Into a Second Career

'Buck Rogers' Star Erin Gray: How I Turned Comic-Con (and Other Conventions) Into a Second Career
A version of this story first appeared in the Aug. 1 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Erin Gray begat many a fanboy dream with her portrayal of tough but sexy starfighter pilot Wilma Deering on NBC's 1979 sci-fi series Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, and since the early 1990s she's been regular on the convention autograph circuit. Gray eventually started a business booking actors for conventions and engagements, and today her Heroes for Hire reps around 150 clients, including Arrow star Stephen Amell, Torchwood star John Barrowman and fan favorite Bruce Campbell.

Saturn Awards: A Genre Reunion and More Gold for ‘Gravity’

Saturn Awards: A Genre Reunion and More Gold for ‘Gravity’
“It’s like Comic-Con meets a Bar-Mitzvah” said host Jeff Ross as the Saturn Awards began Thursday night. He might be onto something. Surely there were plenty of genre faves at the Castaway in Burbank to excite the fanboys and auotgraph seekers outside, whose plaintive cries of “Ernie!” went mostly unheeded by Ghostbuster Ernie Hudson.

Among the actors at the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films’ annual bash: Malcolm McDowell; Chloe Grace Moretz (winner in the Performance by a Younger Actor in a film category for “Carrie”); Lance Henriksen; helmer Robert Rodriguez, a slew of “Walking Dead” thesps including Michael Rooker, Melissa McBride and Chandler Riggs; and Brad Dourif — not quite Hall H at Comic-Con, but enough to launch a thousand selfies. The actors’ reunions, as old friendships were rekindled, took care of the Bar Mitzvah piece.

oh my god, Star Trek Continues is amazing

I just discovered (via io9) the fan-produced series Star Trek Continues, which intends to follow the crew of the USS Enterprise across the fourth and fifth years of its five-year mission. But to call it “fan-produced” is misleading. That makes it sound smaller and less incredible than it is. This isn’t a reflection of or an homage to something greater — this is Star Trek. This is so pitch-perfect a re-creation that it gave me chills, then it made me cry tears of geek joy, and then I forgot I was watching anything other than Star Trek. The sets and the costumes and the props are perfect. The lighting and the direction and the pacing is perfect. It’s even shot in the old-fashioned TV aspect ratio of 4:3. I felt like I was watching episodes from the 60s that I had somehow missed.

Two episodes of Continues have been released so far,

Review: Superboy: The Complete Fourth Season

  • Comicmix
The Adventures of Superboy found its groove with the third season and a sense of stability was most welcome as the tone was consistent and the stories got stronger thanks to Stan Berkowitz and the increasing influence of DC editors Mike Carlin and Andy Helfer. Gerard Christopher as the title character had truly grown as a performer with time and Stacy Haiduk’s Lana Lang was every bit his match. As a result, things looked promising as production on the fourth season got underway in the summer of 1991.

However, the success of Batman in 1989 and that summer’s sequel, Batman Returns, meant there was fresh demand for super-heroes. DC Comics’ parent, Warner Bros., had already had limited success with The Flash on CBS and was looking to build. They needed Superman but that meant, in a bizarre twist, they filed suit against Alexander and Ilya Salkind to regain control of

BBC America Review: Luther Season 3 Finale

  • bestbritishtv
N Conrad

The penultimate episode of Luther season 3 ended with the most shocking moment in the show’s history thus far — the murder of Ripley (Warren Brown). As I watched Luther weep alongside his slain comrade’s corpse, I wondered if Neil Cross would be able to come up with a season finale that wasn’t somewhat anti-climatic. I needn’t have wondered, because Ruth Wilson’s return soon put Warren Brown’s departure into the shade.

Alice Morgan (Ruth Wilson) was bound to return at some point but I didn’t expect to see her shielding her face with a gas mask as she conducted a vigilante attack on a cop car. Her dramatic rescue scene was one of those odd moments when you find yourself rooting for the baddie even though she is attacking the supposed good guys.

"Luther" Film A Prequel, Alice Gets Spin-Off

Since the finish of BBC's extra bleak crime drama "Luther" in July, many have been wondering more about what comes next for the franchise.

Creator Neil Cross has previously stated on numerous occasions that there have been plans for a movie, but wouldn't say if it is going to be a prequel or a sequel.

Speaking at the Edinburgh TV Festival, Cross finally confirmed that it will be a prequel. The script is done and he hopes to get the film made next year.

Cross says: "It will follow his [Luther's] career in the earlier days, when he is still married to Zoe, and the final scene in the film is the first of the initial TV series." That scene being the death of a serial paedophile Henry Madsen (Anton Saunders) whom Luther failed to save from a fall off a catwalk in a chemical factory.

'Arrested Development's' Jason Bateman: Before the Emmys, 'It's Your Move' and 'Silver Spoons'

Jason Bateman scored his second career Emmy nomination this year for playing Michael Bluth on "Arrested Development," eight years after first being nominated for the role.

That's great and all -- but in a certain part of the pop-culture consciousness, he'll always be Matthew Burton.

You know, the lead character of "It's Your Move"? The one-season NBC sitcom from 1984-85?

Welcome to Before They Were Emmy Nominees. Each Tuesday and Wednesday between now and the Emmy Awards on Sept. 22, we're going to look back at some early and obscure roles of a few of this year's acting nominees. (See Zap2it's Before They Were Nominees photo gallery.)

"It's Your Move" came from Ron Leavitt and Michael G. Moye, the future creators of "Married ... With Children." Bateman's Matthew was a teenage prankster and scam artist who lived with his sister (Tricia Cast) and their mom (Caren Kaye). Matthew met his match

Luther recap: season three, episode four | Stuart Heritage

Disturbing, violent , frustrating, gripping and silly – the last episode of Luther didn't disappoint

"So. Now what?" – Alice Morgan

Finally, a happy ending. Admittedly not much of one – there was a shoot-out, an abduction, a murder, three more attempted murders, and John Luther (Idris Elba) finished the episode dumped, wounded, coatless, possibly unemployed and standing hand-in-hand with the universe's campest serial killer – but you have to take what you can get. Luther is a man surrounded by death, so the very fact that he could bring Tom Marwood to justice alive felt like a fitting vindication to the series.

And his career as a policeman? It's hard to tell. Luther seemed to change his mind with every passing scene, telling Joe Green that he was police one minute, then that "I was the police, but not any more" the next. By the time he'd delivered his "What with my being a

Luther recap: season three, episode three | Stuart Heritage

A dizzying, all-out, anything-goes hour of television recalling the best of past series with John Luther tackling an unusual villain

"He's my mate. I love him" – John Luther

Right. Jesus. What the hell was that? Did we just watch Luther's Red Wedding episode? Justin Ripley – poor, sweet Justin Ripley – is dead. Mary Day – poor, slightly annoying Mary Day – is potentially seconds from death. Luther's a hurricane of bereavement, on his knees and bawling his eyes out. After last week's comparative dud, this was Luther with blood in its nostrils, roaring back to its absolute best. It was a dizzying, all-out, anything-goes hour of television. I'm pretty sure my jaw is now permanently dislocated. What on earth will happen next week?

But I'm getting ahead of myself. The signs of all this misery were there from the start. Luther inviting Justin into his house for the first time. Luther introducing Justin to his new girlfriend.

Luther recap: series three, episode two

This felt a little flat after the shocks of last week's opener - but let's hope Stark's investigation makes a mess of it for everyone

"Shut up Mr Ripley. You might just spoil my good mood" – John Luther

While it's true that I'd rather watch an episode of Luther than any other scripted British drama at the moment, I'll also be the first to admit that it has a nasty habit of fumbling conclusions. Tonight's episode, for example, felt a little flat compared with the unrelenting knicker-filling terror of last week. Nobody slithered out from underneath anyone's bed. Nobody hid under plastic sheeting in an attic. Nobody – thank God – shoved their own hand into a blender. Instead, we simply watched Luther find the killer; a Scooby-Doo unmasking stretched out across an hour. Not that Luther did very much to actually bring the killer to justice. He found him, yes, but
