Most Surprising SequelsNext week, Earth Station One takes a look at Surprising Sequels: Movie Sequels That Surprised Us. Has there ever been a sequel that surprised you by being as good as or better than the original like Spider-Man 2 or Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back? Perhaps just different enough to surprise you like The Dark Knight or Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan? Or any movies that surprised you by heading off into strange directions like Highlander 2 or Pirates of the Caribbean? And yes, even those sequels that didn’t quite work like Ghostbusters 2 or Star Wars Episode One? Plus, movies that we always thought should have had a sequel, but didn’t. These are the movies we’ll be discussing on ESO episode 140.

Then, ESO sits down with Doctor Who/Star Trek: The Next Generation writer Scott Tipton, who also takes a turn in The Geek Seat. And, as if that wasn’t enough, we take a look at the latest episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead as it heads into the fall finale. All that plus the usual rants, raves, shout outs, and the ever-popular Khan Report! It’s going to be another action-packed episode of Earth Station One you won’t want to miss.

ESO wants to hear from you. What movie sequels surprised you? What did you think of the latest episode of The Walking Dead? Have you visited a convention or planning one? We’d love to hear from you at, email us at, or call 404-963-9057. We might just read yours on the show. Follow ESO on Facebook and Twitter.
