    After looking at the "Jumped the Shark" thread, I began thinking: what movie series didn't jump the shark with their sequels (at least at the beginning)? List the ones you think that were just as good or better than the original film. One stipulation: the original movie (or sequel preceding it) had to have been a pretty good movie, so you can't say that Friday the 13th Part 6 was better than Part 5 .

    Here's my list to start:

    The Empire Strikes Back
    The Godfather Part II
    Terminator 2: Judgement Day
    Toy Story 2
    Superman II

    Gozer the Traveller will come in one of the pre-chosen forms. During the rectification of the Vuldronaii the Traveller came as a very large and moving Torb. Then of course in the third reconciliation of the last of the Meketrex supplicants they chose a new form for him, that of a Sloar. Many Shubs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Sloar that day I can tell you.
