Earth Station One Episode 140: Surprising Sequels

So many sequels, so few of them have been good! Every once in a while comes one that lives up to the original. Mike Faber, Mike Gordon, Bobby Nash, and special guest Grundy chat reveal their favorites. And speaking of continuing missions, Star Trek/ Doctor Who comic book writer Scott Tipton takes a turn in The Geek Seat. As if that wasn’t enough, we take a look at AMC’s The Walking Dead as it heads into the fall finale. Plus the usual Rants, Raves, Shout Outs, and the ever-popular Khan Report!

Next on Earth Station One...

Next week, Earth Station One takes a look back at Highlander. From a surprise cult classic to a franchise, to the various television spin-off series through talks of a reboot, Highlander has proven to have staying power. Sharpen your swords as Transmissions From Atlantis’ Jason and Rita De Le Torre join Mike Faber, Mike Gordon, and Bobby Nash to trace the history of The Clan MacLeod.

Plus, ESO sits down with Andy Mangels, co-author of the Lou Scheimer biography, Creating The Filmation Generation. Andy also takes a turn in The Geek Seat. And it wouldn’t be ESO without 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 because in the end... there can be... only one.
