Some Site Issues Happening

Hello POParitaville Fans,

Many of you have noticed, and complained, that something seems wrong at POParitaville.  You would be correct.  It has been a little silent, but not for anything wrong.  Real life has been catching up for a little while, so we've been a little slow bring you the breaking news that you are used to.  Rest assured, it will begin very soon.

You've also noticed that there are several issues with images on the site.  We are currently working on a new design, and unfortunately (for us) some of the image coding was injured.  This should be corrected soon.

Don't worry though.  We're not leaving you.  Expect some great things in the coming weeks.

Star Trek: The Next Generation® – A Celebration of Season 2

On Wednesday, November 29th, NCM Fathom Events and CBS Home Entertainment hosted another theatrical presentation of two newly restored episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation.  Similar to the Season One event in July promoting that season’s Blu-Ray release, this event coincides with the Blu-Ray release of Season Two on December 4th.

Star Trek: The Next Generation is, of course, the second live-action Star Trek series which premiered in 1987.  (There have since been a total of five.)  It’s set around 80 years in the future from Captain Kirk’s era and follows the adventures of a whole new crew aboard a much larger Enterprise – NCC-1701-D.  Originally offered in syndication, this new series outlasted the original series’ 3 year, 79 episode run.  The Next Generation ran for 7 years with 178 episodes plus 4 feature films.

The Stars Of 'Firefly' Discuss The Shows 10th Anniversary

Credit: POParitaville
This year marks the tenth anniversary of Firefly.  A science fiction series created by Joss Whedon (The Avengers, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) that aired on FOX for one season.  By now, fans of the show know the turmoil that happened while it was on the air.  From airing episodes out of order, to moving the days that it was on, these were all things that would have killed a show from the conciousness of TV fans.  After Firefly was cancelled after one season, fans did everything they could to soak it all in.

From VHS copies shared and sold at conventions, to the DVD set becoming one of the most collected, it wasn't long before someone took notice.  Universal Studios then stepped up and decided they wanted to take the failed TV series and turn it into a movie, with the hope that it would become a new franchise.  Serenity came, and then quietly faded out.  Many believing it could be the last time we would hear anything about the Firefly franchise.

Trailer Premiere For 'World War Z' Starring Brad Pitt

Let me preface this with saying that I have yet to read Max Brooks' novel, so I only have this trailer to go on right now.  From what the trailer for World War Z shows, this zombies are superhero fast, and they seem to work together.  Take the jump to check out the trailer for Marc Forester's World War Z, starring Brad Pitt.
